  1. 50 Things a Dork should know naman please. By one and only freking syempre hahahaha!

  2. “there is no place like” is not really correct. The ip address is the equivalent of localhost not home.

  4. oh cmon

    A geek would NEVER admit that he/she is a geek, nerds would NEVER admit they are nerds. And same goes to hipsters.

    As a geek, I find most of these too mainstream/stereotypical. Too much plain mention of “popular geek culture” without actual understanding of what makes a geek a geek. Hell, not even a mention of THAC0 in the last category.

    people claim they’re geek, but they’re not. they think it’s cool that some would think of them as such because it comes with a reputation of being smart. but they are not smart, at all.

  7. IMHO, being a geek is just another trend. Geeks are the new emo. Everyone suddenly wants to become a one.

  8. this article makes the term “geek” overrated, just sayin.

  9. geeky ba talaga ang bitcoin farming?

  10. 1337 5p34k means Leet Speak
    sa pinas jejemon sa america leet
    Leet=Jejemon :)

  11. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else experiencing problems with your blog. It appears like
    some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen.

    Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This might be a
    problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

  12. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  13. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from
    being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
