    September 2 is International Bacon Day. As Quirk's resident bacon enthusiast, I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces of bacon stuff from around the Web.

     

  • Not too long ago, geekdom was seen only as the realm of the uber-nerd; a place for overweight, under-socialized weirdos to indulge their love of comic books and video games away from the rest of the world. The essence of that is still true — fandoms are all about a shared love of fictional worlds. But we’ve come a long way from the image of the ‘Comic Book Guy’ in recent years as geek culture has become a mainstream global phenomenon.

  • I started out, when I was younger, wanting to be a novelist.

     

    In the ultimate act of tween nerdery one year for my birthday I was given the choice to get contact lenses or a typewriter, but not both.

     

    Up until that point in my life I had been tormented for being a bespectacled nerd by my classmates, and so I knew what that was like; I could handle that. A new, glasses-less identity was appealing, but unknown.

  • It's Shark Week 2017! Every year, we kick up our feet and watch terrifying sharks on our TV screens—but you weren't going to the beach again this summer, were you? No? Not anymore?

    But what are sharks without frickin' laser beams? Share this post if you can find the one shark without a frickin' laser beam.
