In response to yesterday’s Marrying A Geek, our friend and Gnomie Stu Kopelman writes:

I know a geek who married a beautiful Scandinavian woman, not merely because he qualified in the “geekdomhood” club, but because he was geeky enough not to let it show outwardly. He had all the common sense and intellectual features of the top, modern-day physicist, plus he was a full-fledged geek. The real geek is geeky enough to mold himself into any situation and appear just as those he is around, never giving away any of his true secrets.

That really is the secret of being a true geek – only those on the lookout for him will find him. He appears a geek to real geeks because he is a geek, but he can entertain the common man because he is a common man.
