As we all know, I am truly such a geek. But my latest foray may catapult me straight into Queen of the Losers status.
I watched a special on “The Little Ice Age” (which is FRICKIN’. FASCINATING.) this weekend… and I took notes.
4 pages of notes.
Yep, I took notes off the TV like it was a lecture. And rewound it several times to make sure I’d gotten a particular point right, crap like that. There’s fucking DIAGRAMS, people! I HAVE A PROBLEM.
Then yesterday, I was watching The Hitler Channel and I kept calling Chuckweasel to “educate” him. If by “educate” you mean “annoy the crap out of.”
It all started like this: A lot of his Facebook friends are — how to put this — kinda dumb. Like, he put up a question: “Who would you add to Mount Rushmore?” and their answers were… to put it nicely… retarded. (My answer was “Sitting Bull,” by the way, ’cause I be edumacated, yo!).
So I decided to give them another chance — by asking them a factual question anybody who even ATTENDED high school should know. Prompted by The Hitler Channel, I told him he should ask, “In what country did the Battle of the Bulge take place?”
And he said Germany.
And I said no.
And he said Poland.
And I said no.
And he said that wasn’t a fair question since I’m the only geek who knows the answer. And I said I had to get off the phone to organize my color-coded Notebooks of Knowledge (that’s what I’ve decided to do with the notes — and yes, history is yellow).
Soooo… do I need help? Or just more notebooks?
