You don’t need to love games to be a geek, but there sure are a lot of nerds out there that just can’t get enough gaming time. Personally, I tend to feel awkward around people (even friends) unless we’re playing a game and then I feel entirely too comfortable. Gaming is also a great way to pass the time when you’re alone (or trying to pass time at work), but you can’t always sit down to play World of Warcraft, Minecraft or some other immersive, system-hogging game. For those times, I suggest trying one of these fun online games.
Adult Swim -It’s kind of amazing (and almost sickening) how many great games you can play for free on Adult Swim’s website. It’s almost like they don’t want you to do anything else with your life but waste time on their site -actually, I have the feeling that’s exactly what they want. I recommend starting with a game from one of your favorite shows like Rick and Morty, but don’t be surprised if you get stuck on a maddeningly simple game that just goes on forever (like Rainbow Unicorn Attack).
HearthStone – Made by Blizzard, the same company responsible for World of Warcraft, this easy-to-learn card game is entirely addicting. Best of all, it’s totally free to download and play -though you do have to download it, so you might try playing HearthStone on your phone if you want to play at work (unless you work somewhere that they just don’t care if you download stuff). If you get into it, be sure to add me, my account name is whysteria#1254.
Mansion Casino – Looking to play games with slightly higher stakes? Then check out this online casino where you can play all your favorite casino games, including great geeky ones like Marvel and DC slots and scratchers. You can play for free just for fun or bet and win real money.
Have any favorite online games of your own? Share them in the comments! I know I could always use a few extra distractions (even if my sense of time management disagrees with me on this point).

It’s hard to believe, but the San Diego Comic Con has already came and went. If you didn’t get to make it to the event, one of the best things you missed were all the cosplays. Here are some of the best from this year’s convention and if this isn’t enough to satisfy you, don’t miss our list of the sexiest cosplays from this year, my articles on Geek Native featuring the best mashups and the best genderswaps, my Neatorama articles detailing some of the greatest cosplay and coolest tattoos at the con, or my articles on Oddee that reveal what cosplayers do for a living and show a few of the hilarious intentionally bad costumes at the SDCC.

What exactly is a geek, and what exactly is geek culture? This is a question that many people end up asking themselves. And this is especially true when they are called a geek. “Why did someone call me a geek?” they ask. Chances are, one of the following things leads people to believe them to be geeks. It’s certainly not a bad thing, but it is definitely its own culture. Let’s get started and look at what makes someone a geek and what their culture exactly is in the first place.
The Computer Is the Friend of the Geek
One of the first tenets of being a geek is knowing all about computers. In fact, perhaps geeks even know too much about computers and technology. Many of them love playing games online or with a video game console. The good thing about knowing how to play games and knowing about computers and different types of technology is that these geeks often end up being able to win big at Red Flush Casino. And having extra money is certainly not a bad thing. Many of the geeks who live in Silicon Valley and work in the technological fields actually end up having a ton of money, in fact. Just look at Steve Jobs, Bill Gates or the owner and creator of Facebook.
No Sports Savvy
Another aspect of geek culture that is often mentioned is that geeks tend not to really like sports or have anything to do with athletics at all. This is key because it means that they are especially drawn to other types of things, like computers and technology, comic books and cartoons, but it also means that they tend to be thin and lanky or overweight because they don’t spend any time working out or playing sports! Again, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing other than the fact that it may be slightly unhealthy.
Comic Books and Cartoons
Geeks also tend to like comic books and cartoons. For example, many geeks love going to Comic Con, where they can see all of their favorite comic book characters and superheroes in “real life.”
Do You Have the Smarts for Geek Culture?
Last but not least, geek culture is often simply about being smart, and that’s not a bad thing right? Of course not. Many geeks have professions in which they have to be incredibly talented and smart. Scientists and mathematicians of all kinds can be geeks. Historians and social workers may also be geeks. Artists, writers, filmmakers and musicians are geeks too because they have specific fields in which they know a lot. Overall, being a geek is not so bad, and the culture is pretty good too!

Do you love technology so much that you consider yourself a geek? If you answered yes to that question, then you are probably already part of geek culture. What exactly is geek culture? Well, it all starts with technology, superheroes, comic books and maybe even some math and science.
Geek culture is fun and entertaining actually. A lot of it is about the joy of technology. Geeks and nerds tend to love technology, but it is no longer an actual nerdy thing that can get you beaten up at school or in the parking lot. Much of it has to do with knowing the latest gadgets and pieces of technology that are coming out of our favorite brands and companies. If you love this stuff, then you love geek culture.
Being raised geek
So are you part of the geek culture, and do you love the joy of technology? If you were raised to geek, as they say, then you probably have a few tropes that you already know about that go along with geek culture. First, you probably loved math and science in high school and middle school. You maybe even loved math and science in elementary school, and did you love math and science in college? Yes, you probably did, it’s true.
Another thing that you probably love is the Internet. Of course, most people love the Internet. It’s a great place to go when you are bored, and it is also an amazing resource for knowledge and entertainment. So if you love the Internet, then you’re probably part of geek culture as well. One thing about the Internet that many geeks love is online gaming. Royal online has some of the best online games that you can find the Internet. Search online for your favorite games and those that are most popular. You’ll find all sorts of different games, and if you’re a geek, you will probably be more enticed to play games that you can connect with other people on. For example, you can play with your friends who are just a few houses or apartment buildings down from you, you can play with friends who were actually sitting on the couch or chair right next to you, or you can play with people you don’t even know who are across the country or all the way around the world. It’s all in good fun, and to have a great time.
After you get done playing games, consider going online just to do some research on a hobby or something that you enjoy in particular, or to watch a movie streaming online. You can sign up for movie services and watching favorite TV show even. Have fun with the Internet, and have fun with technology. You’re a geek, so be proud of geek culture.

Yes, tiny critters at a tiki bar. That is all.
As an animal lover, it’s easy to understand why you should never turn to killing wild creatures just because they’re inconveniencing you but wild birds can cause problems when they attempt to inhabit homes and businesses. While many people would immediately turn to poison or dangerous traps, there are companies out there, like this Orlando bird removal service who can help you humanely trap the pesky critters and release them in a more remote area. The companies can then add special bird barriers to your structure to ensure your feathered friends won’t be coming back.
Having birds living in a structure is not only bothersome for the people inhabiting the building, but also dangerous for the birds themselves. They often enter chimneys, air conditioners, and duct work and have even been known to get stuck in walls after entering through a small vent. By removing them from your property and adding barriers to keep them away, you’re doing yourself and the birds a favor.
And in case you aren’t bothered by the idea of birds residing in your home, consider that they also leave droppings, mites, feathers, nests and fleas behind, resulting in damage to your residence as well as dangerous pests that can carry multiple diseases. By having the animals humanely removed and blocked out, you’re keeping the bird, your family and your structures safer -a small trade off for the pleasant chirp of a nesting mother.
The best thing any real animal lover can do for wild animals is to safely guide them to spaces where they can live in the wild -away from human encroachment. While that can be difficult to do with birds, you will be doing your part if you at least remove existing bird populations from your property and put up barriers to prevent them from returning.
