Happy Geek Pride Day!

Fly the geek flag loud and proud today, it's Geek Pride Day - a special day dedicated to those of us who do not (and should not) feel ashamed about showing off our geeky and nerdy passions!

Check out GeekDad's look at 'What is a geek?'

Chosen to celebrate the release date of the original 'Star Wars' movie, which was released to the world on May 25 1977 (and also happens to be the date that 'Return Of The Jedi' premiered in 1983), Geek Pride Day also shares this special day with Towel Day, for fans of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy' series by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25 May for fans of Terry Pratchett's 'Discworld'.

So today, on this special day, no matter whether you're a pop culture geek, a science nerd, a gamer geek or whatever, celebrate and declare your pride at being geek!

As a purveyor of pop culture geekery, mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy, I have quite a lot of things that I geek out over but, and in no particular order, here a few of them with an example of each below.
