I am an unapologetic nerd – I dig science and math and science fiction movies and getting to the nitty gritty on how stuff works. So, I am on a mission (well, not so serious a mission, but at least a fun one!) to make sure people see what is cool, as least from a geek’s point of view.
This Friday, I start with the Space Monolith Action Figure. For those of you who’ve seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, you’ll recognize this as “The Monolith” (according to the movie, it’s what got us humans over the hump from being apes!…).
ThinkGeek.com has the action figure for sale on its website (apparently, “Dave” is not included…) Buy it and you get 300 geek points! I’ve already asked for this (and Dave) for a stocking stuffer… A couple years ago, I posted some other great stuff from Think Geek…
In another post, I noted that Newsweek had listed the Robots Hall of Fame, where HAL 9000 from 2001 was called out. Three cheers for HAL, Dave, and the Monolith!
