    Joining a Facebook group about creative productivity is like buying a chair about jogging.

    Oh, look. Another $30 million fighter jet, buzzing my house at 7:30am.

    I hope it's a Transformer that turns into libraries and health care.

    I say: "No, sorry. I'm not on Facebook at all."

    They hear: "I live amongst hill people where The Goat we worship has forbidden friendship."

    As a nerd, you can spend a lot years feeling kind of alone.

    Then, you find a few other nerds, and suddenly you feel a little less alone.

    NPR says one key to a social media strategy is being "authentic."

    I'd say one key to being authentic is avoiding a "social media strategy."

    Imagine a guy who's REALLY into panties who makes ALL his money selling data about panties. Now he offers to store your panties.

    Google: Thanks for looking at 100s of ads you hate.
    Apple: Thanks for buying 100s of dollars of stuff you love.

    U: So what?
    D: It's literally raw.
    U: Gimme.
    D: OK.

    Ayn Rand goes into a bar. Bartender goes, "What'll you have?" Ayn Rand goes, "Anything I want." Then, TONS of college freshman were selfish.

    Q: How many nerds does it take to ruin a joke?

    A: So. Unless I'm missing something here, I think you meant "geeks." And, "riddle." Proceed.
