The Geek Hierarchy is a graphical representation of the natural order of geeks in the world and where they see themselves as being ‘less geeky’ than others.
For instance, Video Gamers are less geeky than roleplaying gamers, who consider themselves less geeky than Live-Action roleplaying gamers, who look down on 13-year old gamers of any sort who in turn look down on Furry fans who look down on even Erotic Furries which is apparently the bane of all legs of the hierarchical tree.
Other classes of geeks in their own hierarchy include:
- People who majored in Folklore and Mythology
- Comic Book fans
- Anime Fans who insist on Subtitles
- Heinlein fans
- Amateur SF/Fantasy Wrtiters
- Science Fiction TV Fans

These things are basically mobile power generators designed to recharge devices while your traveling, biking, hiking, etc…
The panels use a standard car adapter to enable the gadgets to jack into the generator, you can pick up a wide variety of adapters from Voltaic as well for a myriad of device standards.
The panels that are embedded onto the outside of the book bags and laptop bags are waterproof and very flexible generators that can convert up to about 4 watts of power!

The word trivium comes from the Latin prefix “tri” meaning “three,” and the Latin root “via” meaning “way,” or “road.” The word literally means “the three-fold way or road.”
In medieval schools, the trivium was the beginning of the liberal arts since it consisted of the three subjects taught first: logic, grammer and rhetoric. The English word of trivial derives from the fact that the trivium contained the least complicated studies.
