    "star screwdrivers"


    is that the new slang for a lady's best friend?


    Did anyone buy a Kiligon dictionary? Or buy the complete DVD version of ANY film-spin-off science fiction series, and know the names of all the actors?


    I would venture a guess but I dont want to risk the offense of being wrong. So, do share, who is that??

      did you see trekkies? There is a Klingon school! www.kli.org costs a lot. My friend Nick thought about doing it despite the cost.
      and also, I think you forgot everything comic book related. Does anyone buy, and collect comic books? Have more than 1 subscription? Bought any piece of a hero's costume ( cyclpos's visro, green lantern's ring, captain america's shield, Elektra's sai, i guess eve nthose really expensive lightsabre replicas count) of of the internet?

        I don't have any of that crap.

        I just buy computer games. The only accessories I might be would be a standard controller, or perhaps a flight-sim type controller.

              Lets hear it for nerds, then.

              Actually Imran has a point. Nerdy as it applies to trekkies, grognards, DnDers, Civers, etc doesnt really fit the broad mass of preadolescent and adolescent and arguably post-adoloscent males who go in for FPS's, console games, GTA, etc in a big way. Yet socially well adjusted, completely normal, well-rounded, etc hardly seems to fit either (at least not more so than for the nerdier pastimes). What word is applicable then??

                No, nerdy is the right word. The right word for trekkies et al, is geeky.

                              Available from the Virgin Megastore in London as part of a 7 Up/Virgin cross promotion, I think.
                              I remember it too...

                              It wasn't too bad... just bad... glad I only rented it back in the day.

                              That one was much better.


                              I came here for CtP... but then Macs have about a two-year delay on all of their games...

                              Just got a couple of role-playing books from Amazon via the 'poly link... that's 'gaming'.

                              Then there's the buying of MULE for the NES... that was fairly sad too... especially since I still play it...
                              I'm not conceited, conceit is a fault and I have no faults...

                              Civ and WoW are my crack... just one... more... turn...
