"A recent TV series, "Densha Otoko," about a lovelorn geek who finds true love after a saving a woman from a drunk on a train, proved extremely popular."

isn't "lovelorn geek" redundant?

Other sub-categories include those obsessed with the Internet and "proselytising geeks," who try to get others to join them in their obsession.

Is the Dave Barry Otaku Force working on absorbing others into its mighty ranks?

The depths of the world of geeks remain largely unplumbed.

I wish you people would stop plumbing our depths....

Movies about geeks are so twenty years ago.

This is actually a fairly common story type in Japan. The next step up would be a "harem" story, in which the geek wins the attention of MORE THAN ONE girl.

Gotta love those otaku.

HAHA... nice one Tommy!

even tho I've checked this thread (and read the lead story/link) a few times, I still (even yet today, after only my jumpstart cup of coffee - 100 percent Hawaiian, if it matters) read that title as "Proselytizing GReeks" ... go figure ... I can't ...

<"The impact of geeks is really large,">

Especially if they fall on you after they've polished off a hundred tacos during a Dr. Who marathon...

Worst impact ever!

Maybe i'm not geeky enough, but i still can't quite figure out what "1337" means ...

As for the rest- "The Geeks* Will Inherit the Earth"

(*ha! bet you always thought it said "Meek", didncha)

<"The impact of geeks is really large,">

Sumo Geeks WBAGNFARB. Just sayin'.

Bodi,

1337 = LEET referring to Leetspeak
