5 Reasons Why It’s Great To Be A Geek


Geeks have come a long way since the era of pocket protectors, duct-taped glasses, and “Revenge of the Nerds”. The internet’s done wonders for dweebs with social networking sites allowing them to have a voice and style that was previously never seen or heard. With technology growing at a rapid rate, geeks will only become more… precious. So if you were one of those poor souls who had his head crammed down the toilet bowl in high school, now is the time to rejoice! Here are five reasons why it’s totally rad to be an awkward geeky dude.


Without the invention of Facebook, people everywhere would still be trying to get laid the old fashion way by picking up girls in bars. Now, you simply have to shoot a message over to that total hottie in your Intro to English Lit class and bam, you’ve got a potential hook-up on your hands.

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, has all of the criteria to make him a super geek. Attended Harvard University? Check. Ghost pale complection? Double check. Goofy Jewfro? Check check check.

However, thanks to the invention of Facebook, Mark is now rolling in money and women. He even had a movie made about his life and a gigantic house in California. How could things get any sweeter?


Stars old and young across Hollywood are making the geek look appealing. Donning  thick-rimmed glasses, stars including Justin Timberlake and David Beckham seem to be embracing the nerd culture.

If Hollywood likes geeks, then the world will worship them.


People the world over may loathe hipsters, but this sub culture of weirdos has gotten tons of publicity. Many of the hipsters trademark fashion pieces (i.e. their gimmicky shirts, messenger bags, and tight pants) are taken straight from a nerd’s daily wardrobe.

Without geeks, hipsters wouldn’t exist. And without hipsters, geeks wouldn’t be receiving the kind of attention that they are currently getting.

Indie Rock

Indie rock bands are overflowing with petite,  geeky men. Weezer was actually one of the first mainstream bands to feature a nerdy singer, and many others followed suite.

Bands like Nerf Herder, The Postal Service, They Might Be Giants, and The Rentals all include dorky guys. Start learning how to play guitar, bro.

5.) Technology

Face it, without geeks banging away on computers for the last 30 years technology wouldn’t be where it is today. We couldn’t look at boobs online or order pizza over the Internet with nerds.

So, we raise our glasses to you geeks, and thank you for making 24/7 porn possible.
