Today, they are still mostly hunted in the wild, although geek farms have been on the rise for the past few years. Organ harvesting is their most important use and only real contribution to the economy and society in general; their genes are similar enough to human beings that the risk of rejection is no higher than normal.

Their hides make for poor sources of clothing. They can be used for paper and certain other thin, lightweight fabrics, owing to the naturally pale, dry, yet flexible composition of the dermal layers. Due to to expensive treating processes, though, this is only cost-effective in areas where all of the other biomass has already been consumed.

Cattle slaughterhouses can easily be used to render geeks for their flesh. Little or no conversion is necessary. Although normally poor in nutrient value, and difficult to locate besides, the muscle fiber of the geek often contains high concentrations of stimulants, especially processed caffeine and complex sugars. Since geeks are not allowed access to human society or products under normal conditions, it is assumed that these materials are the result of pollution in the environment. Distilling these chemicals from the useless flesh they are embedded in can be expensive, but the sometimes dangerously (to humans) high concentrations mean that the essential components of over a hundred barrels of coffee or carbonated soft drinks can be harvested from a single geek.

(Geek bone harvesting is not recommended. Their skeletons on average are far less dense than that of humans, and as such do more harm than good in recuperative therapy.)

Finally, experimental drugs and surgical procedures, especially genetic manipulation, are prime candidates for geek testing. The physiology is similar enough that the results from such tests are often more accurate than identical testing on primates. There are also no legal or ethical dilemmas, since no government has ever recognized the geek as having any rights beyond that of any ordinary animal; additionally, all religions agree that they have no souls.
Geeksteak! The new astronaut food!

Thank goodness they exist only to serve us, or little Timmy not have gotten his new heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, and two spare pancreases! And each came from a different donor, can you believe that? What a wonderful time to be alive.

HP's new geekpaper gives you both brilliant white negative space and the satisfaction of knowing nothing so important as a plant was disturbed to give you the medium you need to get the message across.

The geeky kid now owns a million dollar software company

Not to be confused with Nerd. A geek does not have to be smart, a Geek is someone who is generaly not athletic, and enjoys Video Games; Comic Books; being on the internet, and etc.

The term "geek" originally referred to the carnival performers whose act consisted of biting the heads off chickens and eating glass. Over time it came to be applied to anyone who got paid to do work considered odd or bizarre by mainstream society.

The term now enjoys a special status within the technical community, particularly among particularly knowledgable computer programmers. To identify oneself as a "geek" indicates a recognition that most people still consider programming computers to be a bizarre act, along with a certain fierce satisfaction in being very good at their inglorious profession.

That most software geeks now easily earn twice as much as the average laborer just sweetens their defiant embrace of the term.

Note: Unlike the word "nerd," which is always pejorative, "geek" often carries a positive connotation when used by one of the group. The use of the term by outsiders is considered insulting.

One of four titles used to classify someone based on their technical and social skills. The other three titles are nerd, dork, and normie. The difference between the four titles can be easily shown in table form:

................ Technical ...... Social
Title ............ Skills ......... Skills
---------- ---------------- ------------
Normie ......... No ............. Yes
Geek ........... Yes ............. Yes
Nerd ............ Yes ............. No
Dork ............ No .............. No

Normie: A normal person. Blah.

Geek: An outwardly normal person who has taken the time to learn technical skills. Geeks have as normal a social life as anyone, and usually the only way to tell if someone is a geek is if they inform you of their skills.

Nerd: A socially awkward person who has learned technical skills due to the spare time they enjoy from being generally neglected. Their technical knowledge then leads normies to neglect them even further, leading to more development of their technical skills, more neglection, etc. This vicious cycle drives them even more into social oblivion.

Dork: A person who, although also socially awkward, doesn't have the intelligence to fill the void with technical pursuits, like a nerd, and is forced to do mindless activities. Almost always alone. Usually with an XBox. Like playing Halo. All day. Every day. Not even understanding how the Xbox is making the pretty pictures on the screen. Very sad.
If you met me at a party, you would have no idea that I enjoy finite element analysis-based inviscid flow modelling using computational fluid dynamics. That's because I'm a geek.

It doesn't seem to refer to 'computer programmers' as much as it once did when computers weren't so damn cool handy. Geeks are pretty much people who have a real understanding for a certain topic eg Films, music, cars. It's usualy that they are totaly obsessed about the topic, or it's just something they think alot on.

sure, you kick their ass and steal their lunch money and pick on them now, but you wont be laughing when drives up the garage and you have to fix his porsche or ur boss will fire you, and then you realize that the guy in the porsche with a smoking hot wife is the guy you picked on when you were in high school, and you attempt to avoid eye contact but the guy says "hey dont i know you from high school?" and then you say yea and he laughs and drives off, then you go back to your mobile home and complain to your 230 pound wife what happened at work, and who knows, that 230 pound wife could have just have been the slutty hot cheerleader chick you used to date back in the good ol days, u never know....
geek, pick on them and youll regret it for the rest of your life

A geek is a person who is socially excluded from a general population. Unlike nerds, geeks do not necessarily have to be smart. They often create groups among themselves, and generally have these similar characterizations:
-lack of participation in physical activities, such as sports
-an interest in computer
-a crude sense of humor radically different from common society
-a negative attitude toward common society.
Bill Gates was probably a geek in high school, and probably still is today.
