"These two words, nerd and geek, are frequently used interchangeably. However, this does a great disservice to all nerds and geeks who wear the badge of their respective anti-social lifestyle choice with pride. For this reason I feel that it is of the utmost importance that we correctly define the two terms.

A geek can best be defined as one who maintains an excessive fascination with a single thing or collection of things. I use the more general term thing only because there is a wide range of fascinations available which may qualified as geeky. Some have asserted that the object of obsession must be one that is not considered to be socially acceptable or commonly observed from the majority of inhabitants of any give society."

Zodiac Adds a 13th Sign...

According to Time Magazine and various news outlets, that the Earth has shifted its axis recently and the re-emergence of a new sign called Ophichicus has arrived. It is known as the snake holder and the 13th sign of the Zodiac.  Now I don't really believe in astrology, for I don't understand how the Earth can change my behavior, let alone create it. However, for those who want to know if their lives have been changed forever, here are the new dates:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Feb. 16-March 11.
March 11-April 18.
April 18-May 13.
May 13-June 21.
June 21-July 20.
July 20-Aug. 10.
Aug. 10-Sept. 16.

Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Nov. 29-Dec. 17.

Four Loko Being Turned Into Auto Fuel

According to FOX News, guess we're going to be using this beverage for gasoline in the future, which is something not out of the ordinary due to the amount of ethanol that comes from drinks like this. MXI Environmental Studies plans to distill the alcohol and then sell the ethanol to be blended into a gasoline mixture. They also plan to recycle the aluminum cans, the shipping packaging, and even the extra water from the distillation process. 

I'm just glad they're using this nasty drink for something productive. I tried the Cranberry Lemonade one night, and the only thing it did was give me a bad stomach.  I don't see how folks deal with it.
