I think most geeks are in disguise as 'normal' people

You mean, they just walk among us? And we might NEVER KNOW?

I don't know what they look like but anyone writing about "pressing the big round Start button" is a sure bet as being one Smile.

Oh! I have just worked out what at least one of them looks like, hope they don't all look like that Wink

Male pattern baldness before 30. At least from my observation. Not implying I am one of them, so does that mean my theory is wrong?

Like with anything, some people fit a stereotype. Many don't.

I think MF however should have replied: "Why sir! I am of course the king of geeks."

I have a full head of thick hair and don't wear glasses but am an uber gadget geek and have been a geek my entire life!

I like to reveal my geekness at opportune times..

Had a day off work last week, and dropped in to pick up some things.. then waited outside for a workmate so we could go lunch. I was dressed in casual attire, usual, hoodie.. To engage the warmth of the sun coming through the overcast sky.. I sat down on the ground. Not far from me also sitting on the ground was one of the local street transients. We engaged in some banter, mostly in the form of anglo saxon phrases from him. Typical day outside the entrance. A couple of police officers on street beat stopped.. they looked at me.. I laughed and continued, surfing facebook, twitter.. One of the officers came over and stood over me.. He asked..

Where'd you get that phone from aye? huh? huh???

I politely removed my hoodie off my head and looked up and said "I purchased it locally, as I was keen on the Exynos Quad Core processor, rather than from the USA, as those models are only dual core, albeit with 2GB of memory".

His colleague who was drinking what looked like a latte or similar promptly sprayed his coffee, luckily not in my direction.

My geekness saves the day again!

You should go with "This is not the droid you're looking for" while waving your hand and taking the hoodie off...
