In The World Of The Future, Geeks Will Get All The Hot Girls

So says this hilarious magazine cover from 1954. It envisions the evolution of the geeky guy, as he slowly takes over the role of alpha male of the future. See the ideal couple of 2010? The woman is taller and broader than the guy. Of course, the science fiction mag If couldn't have predicted the…

The Geek Guide To Dating A Geek

I’ve been a self-identified nerd since I was 16, but I didn’t always date within my identity. I dated all kinds. Hipsters. Musicians. Wannabe hipsters. Bad musicians. My current boyfriend is a total nerd too, but I almost gave up on our relationship after our first date because he hadn’t read George Orwell’s 1984. (And…

There’s Going To Be A Geeky “Jersey Shore”

Whoa boy, there's no end to the "Jersey Shore" scourge. The show's producers have now cast their sights on a new breed of hyper-constructed reality: nerd reality. Their new show, "Fandom Rising" (let's hope this is the working title), is casting for "eight strangers for a mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out…

Does The Internet Need A Geek Culture Site For Women?

The Mary Sue, a new geek culture blog, just launched a hot second ago, and in one of the very first posts, a staff blogger explains to readers why a geek site "for women" is really necessary. It was an explanation I needed, frankly, because at first blush, I saw an Oscars roundup and a

Stripping, Spanking, Girls Kissing: It’s A New Wii Game

Sex and video games are two of God's greatest inventions, so it's only natural they'd come together. As you can see in this NSFW commercial, WeDare is a silly-looking game in which friends/random geeks strip, spank and kiss at the direction of the Wii. You know, like Truth Or Dare but way more expensive. Parents,…

Girl Talk: My Nerdy Flirting

I recently had a flirtation with a guy whereby we debated the merits of using Dictionary.com versus the actual hard copy, old school, book version of the dictionary. And I realized, with some degree of alarm, that this felt familiar. That this—this courting by way of words—was not a one-time thing. It was a recurring…

Diapers And Video Games: The Grossest Thing You Will Read Today

Amazon's "frequently bought together" feature is supposed to be a helpful search aid, and normally it is ... except in the cases where it pulls up really embarrassing pairings. Like, for example, this adult diaper, which is also frequently bought with the video game "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare." You can put two and…

When He’s Better On Paper Than In Person

Have we met? If you find me charming, funny and confident, then the answer is no. Although, we might have emailed. Why? Because in terms of personality, I'm Don Draper ... electronically. In the flesh? Not so much. Welcome to my personal hell. Here's the deal: When I email a gal, I'm imbued with all…

Meet The HoodieBuddie, An Earbud-Sweatshirt Combo

Usually when fashion and technology are integrated, you think, Hmm, that's an interesting idea (a biking jacket outfitted with blinking turn signals on the back, anyone?), or you just laugh out loud (does weather-activated fashion really have a purpose?). Here's something that actually seems legitimately wearable: the HoodieBuddie is a sweatshirt that replaces the hood'…

Quotable: Fantasy Women Are Easier To Deal With

"Vampirella was so hot I used to buy every comic I could get my hands on. The fact she didn’t exist didn’t bother me because we have these quintessential female images in our mind, and in the case of the male mind, they’re grossly distorted. When you see something that reflects your id, it work…

Revenge of the Nerds: Four Reasons Women Dig Geeks

When my boyfriend announced that he was getting Lasik surgery a few months ago, I was unnerved. Glasses are my thing—one of those obscure attributes that immediately attracts me to somebody, no matter how brutish or repelling the rest of his personality may be. For one of my girlfriends, it’s large veins on a man’…

Buff And Smart? Sounds Like A Dream Come True

"Nerds of Steel," an article in this week's New York Observer, purports that there are a bunch of men who, though they seemingly value brains over brawn, actually value brains in addition to brawn, but in secret. They are smart. They are buff. They are hot once they take off their clothes. I am slightly…
