Are geeks born that way or are they created by unfortunate childhood trauma? The debate will never end. Here is a case in point. When my mother retired and moved to Arizona she cleaned out the attic and gave me back my favorite childhood toy, as you can see above. Was it my mother’s fault? Did she secretly know my fate but was in denial? Or did Mom purposely pave my road to happiness? We will never know.
