That’s right folks, today is National Geek Day. Don’t be confused however,  the term Geek also includes the Nerd, Brainiac, or “people that are out there”. Believe it or not, it’s the Geeks that run this country. Take Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, and Tim Cook of Apple for example, these are the Geeks who have transformed and set the precedent for many new and innovative thoughts and inventions throughout the last 20 years.

I say give thanks to the Nerds, the Geeks, and ALL of the Brainiac’s out there who have made history and have changed our lives for the better. Also, in this month, other events that have come to pass are as follows:
