Geekiest Marriage Proposal Ever

Warning: only hardcore nerds — or those with a soft spot for hardcore nerds — will find this YouTube footage (below) touching.

Super geeks can even play the game for themselves here.

They are so contrived and influenced by Hollywood’s need to give people fantasies that are out of the realm of real experience. NO woman should be “surprised” at a marriage proposal! If you know each other well enough to get married, and have a monogamous relationship, then both of you KNOW marriage is or is not the next step. Nothing… Read more »
