Geeks. Nerds. Weirdoes. Social outcasts. Strange. Freaks. Crazy. Losers. Yes, we have heard them all. And much more beside. First off may I start with who we are not. Please take every label after Geek. That is who we are not. (except maybe freaks, but we don’t ask nor will we judge.) So then, Who are we? We are who we are and we like what we like. In other words we are a group of people who are passionate about those things that we love. We are just like most people, we just look at the world slightly different. Now having established that please allow us to act as your guide to that strange land known as GT South. Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Let’s begin.
The question I am asked so many times is, “What is GT South?”. It is not as easy of a question to answer as one might think. I have tried on many occasions to come up with an answer for this question. A bar for people who don’t go to bars or Cheers meets Big Bang Theory are two of the most common ones. However, if you want to get right down to it GT South can not be explained. It must be experienced. I give you the past week as an example. In the past week I have heard many um interesting things such as ,” I am starting the dildo diet.” (huh?) ; “Don’t search for boob tip.” ( I really don’t wanna know.); “Does it extinguish Hawaiian Punch?” (um . . .What?) or “See that guy in the fursuit back there Grandma?” ( Ok that one is fairly normal.). I have also seen things that may not be unseen. Such as a Mac running World of Warcraft better than most PCs. (Sorry but it was.) There was a nice long conversation with the wise otter. ( I am sober I swear.). Then there was listening to a wookiee and the otter discuss the ins and outs of business. (No really I am sober.) Someone just walked by asking how do I know it’s been 10 minutes??
Even as I type this I know that there are some that will not believe me. This is why I say that GT South must be experienced. Though, I am concerened a little that most things no longer faze me and anything that does faze me most people would refuse to believe simply because such things do not happen in polite society. (Having seen what is the most common definition of that term I take issue with appling the word polite to it.) So if I have peaked your interest or your sense of adventure or you refuse to believe any of this without having experienced it for yourself. All I can say to you is come on out and see for yourself. And on Saturday the 5th it is the season finale of Doctor Who. So now you have the perfect reason to come and learn who we are.
