in reply to Least favorite non-geek(s) at my job:

Seriously,

Has anyone meet a scientist or a professor that was not geeky about their specific topic of interest. (from wiki "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of *intellectuality*, electronics, gaming, etc.") As a grad student, I am surrounded by scientist and professors, and they are some of the biggest geeks I know (as a scientist I include myself in that bunch). Just because you can't code in perl, or speak the parlance many of you can, does not mean you lack geekdom. I (somewhat like tubaandy in a post above) am slightly offended that they even made the list of "non-geeks"...But I am happy to see they are not getting many votes :)
