Off and On Again – Geeky Shirt Number 1.
One of the easiest and quickest fixes when it comes to anything technological is to simply switch it off and then on again. The act of switching it off and on often gives the computer component of a device a chance to re-boot. It is amazing how often this quick fix works. This awesome shirt has an added “naughty” double meaning to it, which is the what turns this geeky shirt into a funny geeky shirt.
This is Geeky not Geek Chic.
Geek chic is a term that started in the mid 2000’s and is used to describe a geek like look. Geek chic included wearing things like big black rimmed glasses, suspenders and high socks. Celebrities even tried going geek, but today the term geek chic is mostly used by real geeks when referring to false geeks. Most legitimate geeks refer to their unique style simply as “geeky”. There is no real geeky style as geeks tend to simply wear whatever is easiest. Matching or stylish clothing is just not important enough to waste time on, especially not when you have aliens to destroy or a maths theorem to contemplate.
+5 Defence – Geeky T-Shirt Number 2.
Plus five defence will save you a world of hurt if you happen to be playing a game such as Warhammer. Strategy war games played on table tops with models and computer games both use terms such as “+5 Defence” and “+2 Toughness”. These terms are used to level up your characters when buying a new piece of armour or obtaining a new skill. These Levels effect the outcomes of fights with opponents. This cotton shirt must have been woven around a Mithril chain mail vest to obtain +5 Defence benefit.
Sheldon’s Spot – Geek’s T-shirt Number 3.
Sheldon is the chief nerd out of the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon has an unhealthy obsession with his spot on the lounge chair. His spot is chosen specifically for certain aspects, such as airflow, angle and distance from the TV among other reasons. It is accurate to say that Sheldon is deeply attached to his spot and if you feel that way about a person it could only be described as love.
Trying To Be Human – Geeky Shirt number 4
A lot of Geeks and Nerds are often associated with being robots or aliens. A Geek’s scientific nature and other nerdy traits are what most of us think Aliens or Robots will be like. Some geeks don’t partake in a lot of sports and are often quite stiff and not very fluid with their movement which is also a robotic trait.
Where Did Geek Come From?
Geek is an interesting word and is pointed mainly at intellectual or gaming enthusiasts. Geek originated from the German word Geck; meaning fool or freak. Today people often label themselves as geeks. To be a geek is definitely not a bad thing anymore, in fact geeks are very proud of their particular brand of geek. There are quite a few “brands” or categories of geek including these common ones; Science geeks, math geeks, gaming geeks, computer geeks and sci-fi geeks.
