HAIL TO THE GEEK- A pop culture quiz

By Venditto, published on Apr 18, 2007

Combine that with a complete lack of anything resembling athletic ability or fashion sense; mix in the common short term goals of social acceptance and virginity loss. Then, dear reader, you'll start to form a mental picture of one of the great movie archetypes of the modern age: The Geek.

The Forbes Museum is a wet dream for 8 year old boys and future billionaires with aspirations of world domination. It’s also a testament to the vanity and self- centeredness that lies at the disgusting rotted core of capitalism run amok. TOY BOATS! According to a sign all of the boats on display are toy boats, not models.
