Since the posting of yesterday’s blog, I have been accosted by co-workers and friends alike about my level of geekdom. For clarification purposes, I feel it necessary to state that sometimes my geekometer is pegged and held there for long periods of time. I freely admit my level of geekiness… my geekocioty, if you will. The god-hood I experienced at the convention, unfortunately stayed at the convention.

Now some of my friends took offense to my stating that I am the “coolest of all my friends.” I feel it necessary to quantify this statement a bit more. The friends in question are my 2 best friends that I grew up with. New friends do not count. Now, a bit about the “Coolest of all my Friends” moniker... by “coolest” I am not assuming that “non-geekiest” is the only criterion. One of the best friends quotes Vonnegut and used to install house alarms (coupled with many other non-cool things), and the other deals with chemical reactions on a sub-particle level and is currently doing a research post doc (coupled with many other non-cool things). I am a closet “gamer” and watch an inordinate amount of children’s television (coupled with many other non-cool things). Level of “geekdom” is not a direct inverse relationship to “cool.” Now I have broken down an equation that measures the coolness factor for the three of us (yes, I did count this mathematical analysis of coolness against me) and it seems that I still edge out G-Money and B-Dawg for the title of “Coolest of all my Friends.” The 2 of you may refute my claims, but I have the math to back this up (sadly, it all hinges on my association with my wife, if “significant other” were not in the equation, I would be toast). Again I must stress how amazingly relative this comparison is. I am not even remotely cool. I admit this freely, but I am cooler than those to jokers, and I have the math to prove it. I am sorry all of you had to witness that, but it was necessary. I had to defend my title.

So to recap:

Tom cruise has flipped his flipping lid.

Geekology is the study of geeks.

If you are still reading this, there is a good chance that you are registering on the geek-o-meter right now.

G-Money: 272

B-Dawg: 270

Me: 283… Boo-Yah!!!! Eat that!

It is a 10,000 point scale.

I am still “The Coolest of all my Friends”

That really is not saying much at all.

I got nowhere to go but up!

Fortunately, since you have made that observation, you have perturbed the system to a high degree, producing great uncertainty for us all, rendering the system now unobservable. So there is no way to really know again who is the coolest. Next time, you try, a different answer may be returned and are you prepared for the uncertain results??!!!

Heed my warning math boy,

Don't trifle with nature!

Oh my gosh...kill me NOW.

There will be no killing of wifey. Then my cool score would plummit.

OK, your wife is extremely cool, so this accountant confirms the bloggers math.
