^ Unfortunately, Crack Staff are not eligible...so with the ONE entry we got, your winner of JPH!P's Ultimate Geek Contest is:

 KUROSAWA87 :jphip:

Here is his entry:

Quote from: kurosawa87
A geek is usually defined as a person who is outside of the box, not being part of the normal society, and I believe I am the ultimate geek.  Now, to define what type of geek am I?  I don't read a lot of books but I keep myself up to date with news and learning as much trivia as possible.  Jeopardy! Is my favorite show and I usually try to catch it when I have the time.  Now, to be a trivia buff, you have to be knowledgeable in all areas and that is particularly difficult when you are a student.  In addition, the knowledge is always progressing and you have to pick it up right away before it becomes general knowledge.
In high school, we used to have trivia competitions and it was hilarious that the person they turned to was me.  When we had a scrimmage against the top class, everyone was trusting on me to get all the answers correct.  In a way, all the eyes were concentrating on my brain, which in another way that has brought the attention of women.  Women like the smart and witty me, they have thought me a lot more about women themselves and I hope that could work out for me in the end.  I have been a continuous learner of everything possible and why not take on such topics as psychology or history. 
In addition, Japanese culture has also caught my attention and I guess as a Japanese geek too, I like to look around places that provide Japanese food and reading material.  I live by a Japanese goods store and I frequent the place quite a lot and I bought stuff like taiyaki, takoyaki flour, takoyaki pan, and sushi rice on one occasion or another.  I learned a lot from speaking too and many have corrected my noobish Japanese to sort of a hybrid in where I can talk to more local Japanese than the nationals.
This ends my essay about me being a geek in trivia and Japanese culture, it has brought me a lot of friends that I would have never made if I did not obtain this knowledge.  Therefore, I am a happy person to learn and continuously learn.





CONGRATS!! PM daigong your email for prize claiming.

Well I would like to thank Dai and Masa for this forum and putting up this competition, I thought there were many out there wanting to get a little prize for themselves, so I just thought of putting in something from my heart about not defining myself as a geek but a normal person who does geeky stuff.  In conclusion, I can never stop being a geek but I an wanting to make geek a known profession.

Thank you again Dai and Masa :)
