    Is that the difference between a geek and a nerd? Nerd's actually KNOW what they are talking about?

    *Bringing this thread back from the dead of the other board.

    What really kills me is when Flaflaflunky starts talking about a certain piece of technology and he's WRONG about what it does!!!

    It's to the point where sometimes I want to scream!!

    You're actually trying listen to other shows on Sirius? See, there's your problem right there. :)

    But yeah, Ralph is a wannabe (at geekery as in other aspects of life), and I didn't know toofy appeared on the show. I just think Hein does as he's told. (I have never heard any programs besides THSS and TWUS.)

    Toofy used to do a semi-regular gig on a local Fox affiliate TV show. I believe either the gig, or the show, was canned. Ralph probably felt sorry for him and allows him to come on Ralph's show. Not having heard Toofy on Geektime, I can only imagine that Ralph uses Toofy as a foil. For a particular product, Ralph might let Toofy try to explain something, Toofy proceeds to fuck it up, and then Ralph gives a proper explanation.
    Revenge of the Geek.

    That's TechnoBeaver to you sir. And do you meant to say that RALPH becomes the technical one in that arrangement!? That's both sad and bizarre.

    Team Stern gets lots of free shit the 'geeks' can talk about.
    show also mysteriously gets guests that have projects that pay Howard to say amazing things about them.
    oh and Howard sucks Ralphs cock .....so he has a job for life.

    Sadly, yes. On a late Nov / Early Dec TWUS, Gary was trying to explain something technical, and failed miserably. Ralph was on the line and gave a decent explanation. Apparently, Gary has very little technical ability, or at least he has little grasp of basic operating principles & definitions, which is probably why Howchie & Co made fun of him with Techno Beaver. Well, that, and the teeth.

    Ferrall just did a live read for that ink show. I can tolerate Geektime depending on the topic but would never make an effort to listen. Ralph knows nothing except that Apple can do no wrong, while Jon has some basic knowledge but nothing beyond what many users of the products have. Worst I heard, besides the comic book crap, was when Ralphie was commenting on an iPod Nano that he kept in the box and never opened because it was so beautiful.

    Yes, its very "geeky" and niche to tout one of the most popular phones in the world(iPhone) that my 55 year old mother-in-law, my 70 year old father-in-law, and my 64 year-old father all own.:rolleye:

    Its also very "geek" to watch Batman, Ironman, and Spiderman movies...all have which collectively have made billions of dollars in box office revenues.:rolleye:

    Its also very "geek" and "underground" when John Hein "geeks out" to NFL...yes, only whimpy dorks watch are football fans. :coffee:

    I hope that the next big show on Sirius is a show about raising children and being in a strong marriage and its hosted by Robin Quivers. Should be more in-depth and researched as "Geek Time" :coffee:

    'The word geek is a slang term, with different meanings ranging from "a computer expert or enthusiast" to "a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts", with a general pejorative meaning of "a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual"

    This word comes from English dialect
    geek, geck: fool, freak; from Low German geck, from Middle Low German.'

    If a mom needs a "cave' she's clearly needs another show to help her out...


    "Divorce Court".


    (shouldn't this show be called "Whatever You Want To Do With The Rest Of The House Minus The Basement, Habitable Shed, or Spare Bedroom, Honey???"?)
