Star Trek Convention, 1986

"Today Trekkers have appeared in Buffalo... A Trekker is almost anybody. Not only does it span all ages from 8 to 80, but all walks of life as well, all career endeavors."

I see nothing weird about these people at all.
I am just as dorky as they are I guess.

It would be fascinating to study how many 'obsessive' Star Trek fans have Autism Spectrum Disorder. As Ryan so joyfully points out, these people are 'nerds,' which mainly just means they lack social facility, which is a common trait of people with ASD.

who doesn't have a fantasy about being held captive by a tall, sexy, angry, and slightly blue alien being?

Ryan in Philly - I have not heard it said better. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Thanks for your insight into this topic.

I just watched he video, and you know what's stupid? One klingon beaming aboard a starship to take over! Some warrior.

I didn't get laid (one night stand) until I was 20, then had one girlfriend for 5 years, then moved overseas and slept with roughly(didn't keep notes) 25 women/year for then next 5 years.

what does that make me? (other than lucky to be disease free....)

I got called that once while introducing a girlfriend to a one night stand. It took like 30 seconds to clear up the issue because all I had to say was "that girl is psycho" which is the one thing that both males and females can agree, females are predominantly psycho.

In retrospect I think its awesome to get called a Man Whore. Sounds strangely like a superhero to me. I had a brief vision of me standing atop a mountain of dead Man Wusses with a bunch of scantily clad women grappling at my legs cuz they all want a piece of Man Whore.


Live Long and Prosper . . . like a Man Whore does.
