A big event is happening this weekend and highlighted in this story, At this prom, the geeks are the cool kids.
That’s right, the 5th Annual Geek Prom will be held this weekend at the Science Museum of Minnesota in St. Paul.
Complete with admission set at different levels: Terabyte, Gigabyte, and Megabyte.
From the article:
Attendees wearing taped-up glasses, Klingon battle garb, marching-band uniforms and old, appallingly out-of-style promwear will get to engage in grand acts of geekiness, such as playing video games on one of the museum's giant movie screens and posing for prom photos inside the mouth of a T-Rex.
So what is a geek, exactly? Typical prom attendees can be a bit hard to define, Lundgren admits. But their behavior, in many cases, will give them away: Some may engage in impromptu prom-floor "Dungeons & Dragons" sessions (something they could do anywhere) or carry their escorts with them ("Inflatable, cardboard or otherwise inanimate dates will be admitted at no charge," the museum says.)
Inflatable dates, I am not going to go there.
