I'm so glad I'm not cool.

My abfave advice columnist, Cary Tennis over at wrote this really cool response to a LW:

My 2 cents--

Geek Love

" and the intoxication of (being) cool, the automatic, nonlinear, simultaneous cultural recognition that is an ancient phenomenon of tribalism, or belonging, or religious ecstasy."

Ah. Sweet.

Exactly what I felt when I walked into the Star Trek convention and a pimply guy with spindly arms wearing a stained t-shirt with cut-off sleeves and enormous Bermuda shorts pulled high up on his body grinned at me with chipped brown teeth and flashed me the Vulcan greeting.

I would've fucked him if he didn't have a girlfriend.
