* Troy Baker, who has done many voices for video games, such as Booker Dewitt in BioShock Infinite, had to tackle the role of replacing Mark Hamill as The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins. To prove he could do this he read lines from The Killing Joke at the San Diego Comic Con, absolutely nailed it, and the crowd went wild. He did this because he is a huge fan of comics, and also a huge fan of Hamill's portrayal of The Joker.

** As a child, Robert McNair refused to leave the local segregated library without being allowed to check out his books. Although police were called, he was allowed to check out the books. The whole incident occurred after he saw Uhura on StarTrek and decided he wanted to be an black astronaut like her and figured he needed to study hard. McNair became the second African-American Astronaut to fly in space. Following his death in the challenger incident, the library was named in his honor and even published a children's book about McNair's determination to check out his books.

* While we're on the subject of bloggers, at least half The Atlantic's bloggers right now are geeks, self-confessed or otherwise. The most blatant example is Ta-Nehisi Coates, who rolls with the [[WorldOfWarcraft Horde,]] enough to write about it for Time. Business Editor Megan [=McArdle=] is also a gamer, though to what extent is unknown (She loves Civ, at least). Chief blogger Andrew Sullivan, being English-born, is an obvious Series/DoctorWho and Creator/MontyPython fan. Josh Green is limited to music geekery, enough to put up a fight with a music website. The rest (Ambinder, Fallows, Goldberg, and Crooks) remain uncertain (unless you count Fallows's beer fanaticism as geekery).
