This fits nicely to yesterday’s podcast. Apparently, there are violaters of Wheaton’s law (Don’t be a dick!) going round to wonderfully geeky girls, telling them, they (the girls) are not geeky enough. Or they have to prove their geekyness to those examples of human refuse. Well, not geeky enough, here’s the answer the geek nazis deserve:
