Opinions and Rants

These Are the Geeks in Your Neighborhood

There won’t be many deep discoveries made in this installment… not that there often is, but still. This would fit nicely in the “tales from the city” style of rambling. Living in a new neighborhood, I decided to start using a new bank as well. I’m in a new neighborhood, new bank, new account, same old no money. As I wait for the new card to arrive in the mail I have to pop on in the bank whenever I need some cash…

I promise, this gets better…

I’m dressed in my GL Corp t-shirt, little faded, but it fits oh so well. Door swings open, the guard smiles at me and I smile back… In the distance I hear:

In brightest day!

Lucas killing my childhood softly

You notice that every time I claim to not fall behind anymore on my ramblings, I then promptly fall behind? I then start said post slacking rant with the claim that life has been hectic for your friendly neighborhood Geek… Then, like a student trying to increase his word count on his paper on the Industrial Revolution (which, by the way, was a revolution for industry) I go into some diatribe about just what prevented me from posting on a regular basis. Well, I promise I will not do that this time. I promise that I will simply move onto to what I wanted to talk about… Nope, no wasted space here my friends. No milking of an opening paragraph. Just gonna’ get to the point…

Lucas messes with my head…

Jews For Tiamat

I spent close to an hour trying to come up with a better title. Every time I thought of a new one, it just didn’t fit. Plus, anytime I can play on an actual existing phrase, I’m gonna’ take it. Besides, the above title gives me images of Topol riding a multi-headed dragon and that makes me giggle. Anyway, the point of said title comes from a report in the Ynetnews, an online news source from Israel. Don’t worry, this won’t be another rant about politics and whatnot… Nope, it’s about Dungeons and Dragons.

You see, even in the promised land my fellows dice tossers get the shaft.

Rolling Dice For Justice!

Honestly, I was going to do one of those wanking “look back and remember” bits, but those are lame. Thankfully, Agent X saved you all from that. (Although it should go without saying, Agent X is not his real name, but you, can’t give away names and all that). So, I’m sitting in a dangerously comfy chair in the Grand Jury Room. While I appreciate the comfort of said chair, it might be a mistake to keep me so comfy when the lights are in a constant state of twilight and the room is kept at a cozy 71 degrees. People, take comfort in knowing that I am often asleep when I approve that someone can go to trial. It’s kinda’ like how I felt when I learned that a certain friend who served in a certain Navy used to fix a certain missile with a certain roll of Duct Tape!

When Geeks Hate

You know, I often claim that Geeks like to make fun of themselves for many reasons. As I’ve said before, it hones our skills against the real world and it’s always enjoyable to poke fun at your own. That’s not to say that we Geeks all live in this rosy world where everyone loves everyone else and we never have problems with each other. We don’t always agree on certain elements of pop culture and various hobbies. The element that is strange, however, is that Geeks have this odd snobbery when it comes to other Geeks. I’m rambling aren’t I? Okay, I’ll get on with it.

Geeks that hate
