We're over it! Geek culture has past it's prime! No one gives a shit that you dress like Russell Brand but consider yourself a total nerd because you can quote Lord of the Rings and still buy Spiderman comics. The cruise ship came in, Comic-con disembarked and ravaged our pop-culture landscape ages ago. Because you consider yourself a geek means nothing more to me than a Yankees or Dallas cowboys fan. You're generic, you're boring and you're a consumer like everyone else. I say bring out the REAL nerds! I want to see hipsters debating RNA structures, mechanical engineering or higgs-boson theory! Don't give me this pop-culture shit!
