Did You Know? Its National Geek Pride Day!

It's National Geek Pride Day! Encouraging everyone to let their inner nerd shine.

Geek Pride Day was established in 2006, made its American debut in 2008 and since then has really gone global.

So get coding, perhaps install some new RAM or just embrace your allergies. Its all about showing your true colors.

I've attached the Manifesto for your consideration.

Rights:
1.The right to be even geekier.
2.The right to not leave your house.
3.The right to not like football or any other sport.
4.The right to associate with other nerds.
5.The right to have few friends (or none at all).
6.The right to have as many geeky friends as you want.
7.The right to be out of style.
8.The right to be overweight and near-sighted.
9.The right to show off your geekiness.
10.The right to take over the world.

Responsibilities:
1.Be a geek, no matter what.
2.Try to be nerdier than anyone else.
3.If there is a discussion about something geeky, you must give your opinion.
4.To save and protect all geeky material.
5.Do everything you can to show off geeky stuff as a "museum of geekiness."
6.Don't be a generalized geek. You must specialize in something.
7.Attend every nerdy movie on opening night and buy every geeky book before anyone else.
8.Wait in line on every opening night. If you can go in costume or at least with a related T-shirt, all the better.
9.Never throw away anything related to geekdom.
10.Try to take over the world!
