Geek stuff, sci-fi... Geek is defined by Dictionary.com as 'A person who is single-minded or accomplished in a scientific or technical pursuit'. Many of us either acknowledge ourselves as computer geeks or are labeled by Friends, Family, and/or Colleagues as the such. This is not a condescending statement and should not be taken in a negative connotative way. It is in fact an admiration of our technical skills and abilities.

Actually you can expand the whole topic to people in general.

I work in a supply house for electricians. The stories I have heard of the home owner, who tries to replace a light switch on his own, screws it up and then lies about it.

Somethings are really simple, yet if you don't know what you are doig you can get seriously hurt. People don't want to admint they don't know something because they believe that makes them appear weak, and under educated.
