What’s Your Geek Sacred Cow?
My Scott and Jean: The Master List
It all started with a simple phrase: “That’s my Scott and Jean.”
Said phrase was uttered by friend-of-Alert-Nerd Dan Faust on that bastion of 140-character social networking, Twitter. And said phrase means, essentially, “That is my geek sacred cow, the one topic I cannot discuss rationally because it makes me too insane/angry/scary-eyed.”
We had a thought: why not challenge a bunch of nerdbloggers to reveal their Scott and Jeans/geek sacred cows for all the world to see? It will either be incredibly fun or result in a bunch of smashed laptops!
Why Scott and Jean as the term’s namesake? Well, given the history and drama behind their coupling, they seem to provoke a good degree of, ahem, passion in a lot of people. Including Sarah.
This is a brilliant idea! My thanks to EDP of ‘I Don’t Read My Blog Either’ for sending this my way.
I personally have two Geek Sacred Cows. Two topics that I cannot discuss rationally because it makes me too insane/angry/scary-eyed. Both are characters that came back to life that should have remained dead.
There you have it. Now move along. I can feel myself starting to spaz out. Seriously, you should run.
