In a recent thread I effused about nuclear physics, partly because I'm interested in the subject and partly to defuse an acrimonious and lengthy Clinton vs. Obama exchange.
I failed in that effort, and proceeded to complain about there not being enough geeks on BlueNC.
Fortunately, that stimulated the egos of some of the geeks who are on BlueNC; they stepped up, on their own behalf and that of others who have been here much longer than I, to show their geek pride. Take this opportunity to join them!
BlueNC geeks, represent!
I'll get the ball rolling with those who have already stood up to be counted.
[...] we have a green architect and interTubes geek (gregflynn), a military aircraft noise geek (parmea), a naval warfare and statistics geek ([James]) [...]

As for myself, yeesh, I'm a really stereotypical geek in a lot of ways. I'm a physics geek, a genetics and evolution geek, a space exploration geek, a (minor) aviation geek (but not wealthy enough to be a private pilot), a music theory geek, a guitar geek, a computer science geek, a philosophy geek, and I'm willing to get my hands dirty in just about any subject. I'd like to be a history geek, a film geek, and an economics geek but I don't feel I have the chops yet, so I am powerfully envious of those who are. I used to be enough of a pop culture geek to be able to laugh hysterically at Dennis Miller (back when he was funny), but I'm getting older and starting to lose my interest in what them young whippersnappers are paying attention to. And, of course, the pièce de résistance—I have been a Dungeons & Dragons player for many years.
