Want to Compare ThinkGeek Wish Lists?

Here's mine.  Check out the note.


  1. Love it! I just got my (TG) "Ninja Remote Stealth Television Gadget and IR Jammer" and cannot wait to try it out!!! My drunken, obnoxious neighbor's got a mighty big surprise coming during football season this year. :-)

  2. The definition of geek has changed considerably over time, and there is no longer a definitive meaning. The term nerd has a similar, practically synonymous meaning as geek, but many choose to identify different connotations among these two terms, although the differences are disputed. In a 2007 interview on The Colbert Report, Richard Clarke said the difference between nerds and geeks is "geeks get it done."(or "ggid", which only a certified geek would point out) Julie Smith defined a geek as "a bright young man turned inward, poorly socialized, who felt so little kinship with his own planet that he routinely traveled to the ones invented by his favorite authors, who thought of that secret, dreamy place his computer took him to as cyberspace—somewhere exciting, a place more real than his own life, a land he could conquer, not a drab teenager's room in his parents' igg elisa kit"

    An acronym G.E.E.K also contributed to the word's connotation to technology savvy people. Geek used in this context was popularized in the US army and denotes "General electrical engineering knowledge".
