    Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

    ich habe mir jetzt endlich mal diesen absoluten GEEK-FILM angesehen. empfohlen von Harry Knowles. Und ja (obwohl er nicht mehr wirklich sinnvoll schreiben kann) hatte er, was diesen Film angeht, absolut Recht - I'm in geek heaven...

    Jimmy Neutron ist nicht nur ein Spaß für Kinder sondern auch für jeden Filmgeek, eine herrlich abgedrehte innovative Optik, skurile Charaktere, wirklich lustige Dialoge und gute Synchronsprecher u.a. Patrick Stewart und Martin Short! außerdem ist er wirklich gespickt mit unzähligen netten Filmanspielungen... einfach ein kultiger Spaß für alle Freunde der etwas anderen Animationskunst!

    Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

    The word "geek" is a fairly recent Americanism, derived from the Middle Low German "geck," which was supposed to a sound crazy people made.


    Ironically, one of the geekiest guys in my high school, bless him, had the last name of Goeckel, and everyone called him "the Geck."


    But that's beside the point.


    "Geck" became "gek" in Dutch, meaning madman or fool. It found its way into American slang as "geek," a guy who does really gross and disgusting things in the side show at the carnival. The classic act for the carnival geek was to bite the head off of a chicken.


    Eventually the word was used to refer to anyone who was gross or undesirable, be it through lack of hygiene, lack of social skills, or some other repulsiveness.


    Recently it's come to imply a certain bookishness or braininess as well, in keeping with the American anti-intellectual tradition. Opinions vary as to whether the braininess causes the repulsiveness or vice versa.


    Very recently -- in the 90's -- the repulsive connotation has receded and the brainy factor has come to the fore. One often hears the word "geek" used in ironic and even complimentary fashion to connote knowledgeability and expertise.

    oder: Now, it will become evident through these various rants, that I am indeed what may be considered a "geek". Now, the term "geek" has been twisted and abused quite frequently. I will attempt to clarify the moniker, along side those labels it is most frequently confused with: Dork and Nerd. Many people confuse the three, while the trio actually describes 3 very different, but similar variations on the basic human template.
    I'll begin with outward appearance, the easiest of differances.
    A Dork is someone who is, for the most part, still dressed by his/her mother. This leads to all kinds of asthetic problems: Sweater sets, knee socks, brightly-colored shorts, brightly-colored shorts along with knee socks, etc.
    A Nerd typically actually dressed him/herself, though is often confused with the Dork because he still looks like he/she is dressed by said maternal unit.
    The Geek, on the other hand, dresses him/herself, and it shows. The Geek has a firm grasp on the asthetic and dresses acordingly. Whether or not the garb is actually astheticly pleasing is entirely a conscious decision on the part of the Geek.
    This intentional violation of appearance rules should be made clearly separate from the Nerd or Dork's appalling appearance. They violate the asthetic either because they don't know any better (or the maternal figure in question doesn't know any better), or they just don't give a damn. When the Geek violates the asthetic, it is to serve a specific purpose.

    That brings me to the second differential: Social Consciousness.
    Dorks tend to be totally oblivious to the concept of social acceptability.
    Nerds usually have some idea, but just don't care.
    Geeks know perfectly well what the local social mores, etc, are, and use them to his/her own advantage. Manipulating them at will, thus showing a fairly refined understanding of said social codes.

    In general, Geeks tend to be much more socially aware than either Nerds or Dorks.
    Nerds are aware of the workings of society, but just don't care to follow them or violate them. They don't worry about anything but their chosen interests.
    Dorks, on the other hand, pitiable creatures they are, just simply don't have a clue. They do what they do because they truly have no idea.

    Geeks are very much "obsessed" with the fantastic, science fiction, movies, computers and what not. However, they tend to be more "artistic" and asthetic in their approach to these obsessions. They are able to laugh at themselves and see the world through more than just the point of view given by their interests. As such, they are often sarcastic. One of the best ways to tell a Geek from a Dork or Nerd, is to actually refer to the party in question as "A Geek". A Nerd will usually just mumble something they percieve as "cutting wit" and go about their business ignoring you. A Dork will most likely become defensive and possibly be emmotionally scarred by the experience. A Geek, on the other hand, will most likely respond with a phrase such as "Damn Skippy!", or "What's your F***ing point?". So, yes, we do tend to be the more arrogant and self-assured of the three.

    The original defition of "Geek" was someone, usually a sideshow perfomer, who consumed live animals. I'm still not sure how/where/why this evolved into a label for my particular "social caste", but it does have a rather satisfying, if gruesome, appropriateness.

    GEEK = eine Person, die langweilig ist, Kleidung trägt, die nicht modern ist, etc.
