Throughout my long and fruitful years, I’ve found several things to geek out on. Starting at a pretty early age I was totally into G.I. Joe action figures. As most of you know, G.I. Joe is a potent gateway toy, and soon enough I found myself getting into more hardcore geekery, namely X-Men. I had the action figures. I had the collector cards. Next was Magic: The Gathering. After interacting way too much with people like this I realized that I had reached the edge of sanity, and I turned away, retreating to the comforts of normalcy for the past eight years.
Now, however, I’ve found a new outlet for my inner geek. It’s called Wookiepedia, and it’s a Star Wars wiki. Anything you could ever want to know about Star Wars is on this site. The thing is, I’m not even a huge Star Wars fan. I’ve seen the movies a few times each. I had a book and some collector’s stuff at one point, but I am in no way a Star Wars fanboy. And yet, I find myself intensely interested in the history of the Jedi Order and the properties of the imaginary metal cortosis (it can stop a lightsaber!). I think it’s just proof that inside of me–and hopefully inside of you too–there is a giant geek, just waiting to rear it’s acne’d head and waste hours of your precious freetime.
So when that inevitably happens, head on over to Wookiepedia and geek out to your heart’s content.
