@morganmpage: Ten years ago I would not have predicted that geek culture would plunge the world into political chaos.
I stopped feeling like one of these people long ago… Not because I grew out of gaming culture, but because I noticed those tendencies and could not put a name to them.
That and the simple lack of available time for gaming. Work is how you afford to have gaming time. The entire thread is so worth consideration.

“Businesses don’t have souls; they are profit centers.”
Took it from Bar Rescue: Yo-Ho-Ho and a Bottle of Dumb..
If a business ever develops a soul, it is through years-long nurturing hand in hand with long term profitability. It is the smartest thing I’ve heard about any sort of business in years.

There have been a lot of advancements in HP printers since 1995. Unfortunately they have all been in the wrong direction.

On the internet, most are real people with fake identities. Others are fake people with real identities.

Gaining confidence is catch 22; you’re not confident because good stuff doesn’t happen to you, and good stuff doesn’t happen to you because you’re not confident.
So here’s the key: Pretend to be confident, act confident even when you don’t feel it. Don’t be a scumbag but hold your head up high. Force yourself to talk to people even when you’d rather not. Pretty soon all that good stuff that those confident guys get – that’s coming your way. That will boost your esteem and make you more confident in yourself naturally; suddenly you don’t have to pretend anymore.
