jayhawk88: But look how quirky she is! A banjo in her living room! She orders in tomato soup! SO MANY BOOKS!


That's not just any banjo.  That's a vintage thriftstore banjo.

SlothB77: I am hooked on New Girl.  Schmidty is the best.  But there only needs to be one.  Oversaturation will ruin it all.


I absolutely tried hating that show, but it's so god damn funny. I could only fight it off for so long. One of my favorite moments

Ummm... she's a musician. They tend to have instruments.

ZeroCorpse: tchau: Geek girls can be very pretty.  My ex fiance was very pretty, but had everything that made geek/nerd girls what they are including

1) social awkwardness
2) unreasonable hate for anything attractive of the same sex
3) unstable mental makeup
4) love of firefly, neil gaimen, doctor who
5) fluctuating weight gain

She had other mental issues, thus why she's an ex, but there's a lot of very attractive geek/nerd girls

I never said geek girls couldn't be pretty. I think my fiancee is beautiful. However, I have to ask you this about your ex:  Did she make a habit of posing half-naked on webcams for the world to see?

And did she ever get picked on by other girls-- I mean, really picked on-- for being interested in those mainstream interests like Firefly, Neil Gaiman, and Doctor Who?  Because YES, those things are MAINSTREAM entertainment, not niche media. Doctor Who is one of the most-watched shows on television. Neil Gaiman is a relatively popular writer. Pretty much everything Whedon does is of interest to a large section of society.

Could she tell you how many pips a Captain has on his collar in Star Trek? Could she list Superman's weaknesses? Did she know the rules for 2nd Edition D&D? Did she excel at math and suck at sports? Was she keenly interested in computers or engineering to the point of obsession?

Or did she just like to watch a few science fiction and fantasy shows and read the occasional manga?



And with this post, the "geekier than thou" types officially became more annoying than hipsters.

Dueling banjos is kind of gay, don't you think?


Only if there is direct eye contact, otherwise it's OK.

BATMANATEE: She also had fantastic tits, a huge libido, and LOVED anal. The relationship lasted far longer than it should have, but I'd go back to visit if hadn't immediately married the next guy to come along.


Good for you marrying the next guy to come along!

We are very proud of you people and your marriage rights here on Fark.

devilEther: Anyone with a banjo in their living room is just trying to show how quirky they are. there is no other possible explanation for it. it's why the banjo was invented.


That's a common misconception. The banjo was actually invented to provide an appropriate soundtrack for shady characters running from pursuers, usually angry townsfolk or a small group of sheriff's deputies.

If anything, a banjo is an indicator that you're an untrustworthy huckster, who should probably be run out of town limits immediately.

It does seem geek stuff is cooler now than it was back in the 1980s and 1990s when some of the archaic geeks like myself were around. But not THAT much cooler.

Wearing glasses doesn't make the wearer a nerd/geek. But if they're nice to look at, I won't complain that loudly.

Pretty people can get away with having nerdy interests.

Hell, even moderately attractive women who truly have nerdy interests will have men beating a path to their door.

For example, it was here on Fark that I learned that a woman under 200 pounds can go to an SCA event and become an instant goddess.

Or as the Onion put it once,

http://www.theonion.com/articles/woman-at-farscape-convention-has-da ng erously-infla,1169/

I wonder if this happens with straight male Eurovision fans as well.

I don't get it. My house is full of books.
I have a banjo leaning against the piano in the living room.
I wear flannel Pajamas.
No one's breaking down my door trying to bang my bones.


Try the tomato soup thing.

There is nothing about this woman that is geeky, nerdy, or awkward. There is not one single thing to mark her as a nerd or geek in the traditional sense.

No, my friends, what you see above is a hot girl who is wearing glasses. They're not even particularly nerdy glasses. They're the most popular style out there (rectangles), and they probably cost her $400 at LensCrafters. She doesn't even have thick lenses.

She's not plain-looking, fat, ugly, pimply, weird-looking, or awkwardly ginger. She has a model-pretty face, great legs, and a nice rack. There's nothing about this girl that would preclude her from being popular or joining the cheerleading squad. Frankly, you'd expect to see her on the cover of Cosmopolitan. She's  that pretty.

When are you guys going to learn that slapping a pair of glasses on a woman doesn't make her a geek. Neither does playing video games. My 80-year-old mother plays video games! Video games have been mainstream since everyone contracted Pac-Man fever in the 1980s.

Look... Nerds and geeks were traditionally the unconventional-looking people. The "different" people. The ugly or plain people. The ones who would be laughed at if they tried to join the Pom-Pon Team or hang out with the popular people. If you're hot enough to BE a popular girl, chances are you have no idea what it is to be treated like a geek, seriously called a geek (as an insult), and hang around with actual geeks.

I went in search of images of women who might actually be geeks or nerds online, and I learned something: Most of the real ones don't post their picture anywhere. It's the ones who  know they're pretty who are confident posting tons of photos. Still, here's one woman who I'm pretty sure was always called a geek or nerd. This image shows a little contrast between the reality of being a geek, and Ms. Hottie up there who doesn't even get close.

She's really pretty and funny, but she looks like she's pooping and planning her killing-the-spider-in-the-corner-of-the-ceiling attack in this photo.


What about the boobs?


I don't see how they would factor in to the poop/spider scenario, but certainly if you put some effort into it there may be a market for photos containing all three.

What I really hate is when there's an already pretty girl and then they throw a pair of glasses on her and I'm suddenly masturbating.


I was at that theater and none of us in the audience were enjoying it either.
