“Pretension is better than The Cure”

Geek Party

Monday, February 1st, 2010

You know that you are at a party full of geeks when:

  1. The music goes off suddenly, because the network that was streaming music off the web goes down. Half a dozen PhD students dash to help to try and fix the network;
  2. The silence is punctured by the sound, from the next room, of half-a-dozen stoned physicists having a rambling argument about the theory of relativity;
  3. Meanwhile, two people are sat in front of me playing chess, and taking a swig from a bottle of vodka whenever a piece is taken.
