Flying Your Geek Flag High: The Ultimate Geek Clock

April 8, 2015


This is the Geek Nerd Clock available from Etsy seller LetterThings ($23). The numbers have been replaced with geeky references to the number that should be there. They blew the opportunity to use a reference to Battlestar Galactica's Number Six for 6 o'clock though. Also, 12 won't be accurate anymore when there's a new Doctor. Besides that though it's pretty sweet and I just bought one to use as a dinner plate. "What time is it?" I don't know, I can't see through Spaghetti O's. "With mini meatballs?" OF COURSE WITH MINI MEATBALLS, I LIVE THE DREAM. I do not actually live the dream by the way, I live a nightmare that I can never wake up from. "Well that got dark quick." Sometimes my therapist shows me inkblots and asks me what I see. You know what I tell him? I'll tell you what I see -- I see the outline of your penis in those khakis man, you need to start wearing looser pants. That shit's bad for your nuts. That's when he checks his watch and wishes our session was over, but it's not, we've still got 45 minutes left and I'm not even to the part where I cry hard and start breaking everything on his desk.

Thanks to Marion, who tells time the old fashioned way: it's either daytime or nighttime. ACCURATE.

    This is a stupid clock made by stupid people. It's 6x9=42 not 6x7. The makers of this clock should be ashamed.

  • Valethiel

    This is stupid. Must have been a slow geek news day.

  • randomitems

    After only a year, we've already forgotten the War Doctor?

  • archer923

    The doctor himself even doesn't know the numbering. He counted his arm cut off as a regen. So technically it's doctor 14.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I am clearly not geek enough as I don't know where any of these things came from.

    Also, I'd say it's kind of a stupid design regardless whether I understand it or not.

  • archer923

    Yeah, I don't like it either.

    12 is there's 12 doctors currently.
    11 Merry's line from lord of the rings.
    10 is from TNG's 10 forward lounge.
    9 is again from LOTR 9 rings given to the race of men.
    8 is Doctor Who again. Daleks line of saying exterminate.
    7 is Harry Potter. 7 Horcruxes.
    6 is 6x7=42. Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.
    5 is episode 5 empire strikes back.
    4 is 4 kings and queens.
    3 is tri wizard tournament, Harry Potter.
    2 is the two droid line from a new hope.
    1 is Picard's nickname to Riker, Number one.

    You neglected to mention that the "kings and queens" is likely a reference to 'The Chronic-WHAT?-cles of Narnia'.

  • Mister Cerberus

    Will become defunct when the 13th Doctor arrives

  • autumndawnzz

    Meh :/

  • Sp33df0rc3

    I know that it's the 3 wizard tournament but it was book 4 and that pisses me off for some reason.

  • archer923

    Book/movie 4 does piss people off a lot. I never bought movie 4. And watching the movies like that, without it. You don't even care. 'Cause only Voldemorts revival is important. Nothing else done in there was brought back up, in the later parts.
