Up until recently being into SciFi, comics, and video games always meant you were an outsider. I LIKED being an outsider.

...its like its now cool or at least socially acceptable to be a geek, its the next "fad" now that the hip-hop "gangsta" fads are finally calming down. And I feel a little...discomfited because, hey, I've been a geek my whole life! I actually suffered for my passions before it was cool! But then again, how many people "shaved their heads and swore they were punk before punk was punk"--nick Hornsby. But still, that's all it really means to be a geek: to be highly passionate for something you love, and I guess everybody has a little of that.
