A few years ago, Zuke and I got into a discussion regarding who was a bigger geek, me or one of our fellow contributors, Carl. It was determined that even though Carl has “con cred” and has huge geekish tendencies, I was the bigger geek because “Carl has Star Trek, you’re just kind of a sad geek.” To that I say “I have Star Wars! I will break you Kazuki!”

It was about this time in my life that I discovered the Geek Hierarchy. It’s a flowchart showing what geeks are better than other geeks. Even though Carl may be less geeky than me, I take comfort in knowing that I’m better than all furries.

Co-founder/show host/producer of Stolendroids. If you’ve listened to our shows, you know that I’m a geek. Anyone who says differently doesn’t know me very well. If it has anything to do with computers, video games, toys, comic books, or sci-fi, you can count me in. Also, I aim to misbehave.

  • Funny thing is according to that chart, I’m not very geeky at all. But then you have to remember it’s not a chart of how geeky you are; it’s a chart of “Considers themselves less geeky than . . .”. I’m a Trekker, Anime Fan, Cartoon Nut, Transformer’s Fan, Webcomic Fan, Video Gamer, Sci Fi Fan, and afew books here and there.

    I’m multi faceted I guess.

    ugh. . . I sidle right over there to the “people who majored in. . .” and it just hits too close to home with the ren faires and SCA. . . and while I am into anime (with subtitles), and fantasy writing/art, at least I can draw my boobies right. . . face might be horsey and off center, but breasts. . . perfect every time. . . you could bounce a quarter off my boob drawings. . .

    He he he… You said “boobies”. So tell me this: if you draw anime with horsey faces and boobs, are you actually drawing furries?

  • AHHH! No furries art! NOOOOOOOOO.

  • Geeks Are Cool

    Since when is being geeky a bad thing?

    Seriously, the whole “my brand of geek is better than your type of geek” posturing that goes on these days is really kind of lame.

    Then again, that’s the whole point of the Geek Hierarchy: The folks who actually use it to prove they’re better than anyone are the biggest losers of them all.

  • Some people forget that things like this (like most the things the Brunching Shuttlecocks did) are a joke; written by geeks, for geeks. Most other people don’t know what we’re even referencing here.

    And all people, geeks or no, can agree that furries are the worst of the worst.
