Some Words Of Geek Wisdom

Some Words Of Geek Wisdom


Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, a super geek.

And The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth.

What is a geek? Is a geek someone who concerns himself with the minutiae of everyday things? Or are the boundaries of geekdom well defined ie comic books, cult movies, roll playing games, computer nerd etc ? Have geeks now inherited the Earth, is it now cool to be a geek? Have you ever found yourself saying " I'll be back " or " Hasta la vista baby " in a teutonic accent? Then you may have some geek in you too.

" Try Not. Do. or Do Not. There Is No Try "

One of my favourite quotes of all time, of course it is spoken by Yoda in the third Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back.


" Violence Is the Last Refuge of the Incompetent "

Spoken by Hari Seldon in Asimovs novel FOUNDATION.
Not much explaining to do here , the great mind that was Isaac Asimov believed that any physical threat could be bested by non violent intelligence, in my honest opinion this can only be true up to a point.

" When There's No More Room in Hell, the Dead Will Walk the Earth "

Peter, Dawn Of The Dead
That's right blame man and all his sins for causing the zombie apocalypse, there cannot be any possible scientific explanation for the reanimation of the dead.

" He Chose .... Poorly "

These immortal words are uttered by the grail knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade as grail hunter Walter Donovan picks the biggest and shiniest of chalices as his choice as to what vessel would have held the blood of Christ. After Donovan meets his comeuppance we see that the real grail is the most modest looking cup available.

Harrison Ford a geek god.

" There Can Be Only One "

Mainly spoken by Clancy Browns character the Kurgan in Highlander. This is still a great movie even though it looks a bit dated now, i suppose the film would not have been as good if the protagonists had been allowed to use Uzi 9mms or had used their immortality for the better of mankind instead of just fighting to be the last man standing, oh well.

" I Have Come Here to Chew Bubblegum and Kick Ass, and I'm All out of Bubblegum."

Ordinary man turned hero Rowdy Roddy Piper in They Live.
John Carpenters movie has become a bit of a cult classic and features a memorable fight scene.

The Oath Of Green Lantern

This has become the most well known version of the Green Lantern oath although there has been numerous other versions.

" With Great Power Must Also Come Great Responsibility "

"Uncle Ben" from Amazing Fantasy #15 August 1962 , the first appearance of Spider-man.
Usually quoted incorrectly as " With great power comes great responsibility"

Godwins Law

" As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving nazis or Hitler approaches 1 " Mike Godwin explains his own Godwin's Law

"You're going to need a bigger boat"

Brody to Quint in the movie Jaws.                          

" Go Tell It To The Spartans "

King Leonides to Simonides of Creos
Go, tell the Spartans, thou who passest by,
That here obedient to their laws we lie.
The movie 300 has become a geek favorite, based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller it tells the story of the Battle Of Thermopylae where 300 Spartans and a small force of soldiers from other Greek states faced the might of the Persian army.

" Fantasy Is the Impossible Made Probable .science Fiction Is the Improbable Made Possible."

Rod Serling the creator of the Twilight Zone. Television went downhill after this series.

" Fear Leads to Anger, Anger Leads to Hate, Hate Leads to Suffering "

Yoda - The Phantom Menace.
Not the only film where the trailer ends up being far better than the movie itself , this phrase was probably paraphrasing George Washington Carver the great Afro American intellectual who said " Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater."


" I Have Been, and Shall Always Be Your Friend "

The dying words of Mr Spock from the Wrath Of Khan.
Not the only phrase of Mr Spock's to be widely quoted " Live long and prosper " is at least as over used.
