My particular best story about displaying my geek pride is kind of the opposite of this, and comes from the fateful days I spent commuting on the Path train during rush hour with all the middle aged suit-wearing Wall Street people. At the time I was displaying an “I Believe in Harvey Dent” button on my bag, and not only were we almost two years out from The Dark Knight, we’d just finished up some mid-term elections. I got a lot of people asking me what district Dent had run in, but only one guy who asked me whether I preferred Billy Dee Williams or Aaron Eckhart. Naturally, this was so on topic that it completely confused me.
