So you’ve spent your fourteen years of life engaged in the unrelenting pursuit of the perfect score in every computer game known to man.  Now you’ve decided to adjust your coke-bottle glasses on your nose, apply a fresh coat of clearasil and take on the world.  After memorizing every episode of Star Trek and grasping the lesson’s of life taught by Buffy (yes, I know you think she’s a babe), you have decided to share your wisdom with the world.  But how to show what a macho cool dude you are without actually exposing yourself to the risks inherent in real life?  Fortunately, you are a Geek and know everything there is to know about the Internet.  You look around  briefly and you find out about online gaming.  You can play Quake and prove that you are more skilled in personal combat than any muscleheaded marine or play interactive fighting games and demonstrate your martial arts prowess in a hundred perfect executions of the spinning sweep kick.  But what about your true genius, the exercise of strategic thought?  You’ve mastered the sublety of Stratego, the logistics of Risk, and even the complexities of Axis and Allies.  You are ready to go forth and conquer!
