This year, we're running the tab headlines first, and the Main page contest after, with the other contests (wordplay, context, etc) after. Just a heads-up that all of the subtab headlines are going up today: Sports, Geek, Entertainment, Politics, and Business. Each of them will show up both on the mainpage and also in each respective subtab. I'm going to keep each stickied to the top for an hour and a half for voting purposes, and will probably bump them up a bit tomorrow to catch votes from people who missed them because they were busy at work or out Christmas shopping.

Here are your final candidates for Fark's Geek Headline of the Year. These are the top 20 geek headlines as voted, with the top five from each quarter of 2013. Now you get to choose the one you like best. Enjoy.
