Geek Certification

Formal Certification based on Geekiness

Sure you can be into Star Wars...Star Trek or LoTR, but how do we determine who is the bigger geek, Doctor Who fans perhaps? We need an international scale of geekdom with formal certification based on geek knowledge (and perhaps ability to repulse women). If you dress up as a Klingon on weekends you might be a Journeyman Geek; attend every Star Trek convention and you might be a more accomplished geek. An international standards organization needs to sort this out.

       Are you sure you're not confusing geeks with nerds?

       The certificate would have geeked text, of course.   

       "Ipsum LoTRem . . . "

       At some point, Dr Who fans will be recognised not as nerds or geeks, but as the most culturally sophisticated people of our time.

       640 certificates should be enough for everybody !

       I misread this as "Greek Certification", where you must be able to say "wooo!" and do stupid stuff while listening to bad music.   

       There are places where those who are simultaneously "Geek" and "Greek" congregate. The outcome is not pretty.
