Adventure. Excitement. A geek craves not these things...most of the time. While most of us are content to walk in the light, a number of our most craven geek brethern have chosen to follow a darker path, seeking power, fame and glory through any means neccesary. Plying their geeky wiles towards bending the world to their will, these nerdy neerdowells will stop at nothing to survive and thrive. To make sure you know to steer clear of such
vermin, we've put together a gallery of some of the worst offenders. After all, knowing is half the battle.
