You might be a geek if. . .

… you get excited about this contest.*

I have here the complete boxed series of Stargate Infinity on DVD. I’m told this is pretty exciting if you’re a die-hard Stargate fan, which I don’t happen to be. (Dude, I draw the line at Star Trek: The Next Generation, and only because Captain Picard was hot.)

One lucky, deeply geeky Want Not reader is going to win this set, and you can either indulge your inner geek, or give it to your favorite geeky dad for Father’s Day, or let your kids watch it (it’s animated, though I’m thinking it’s not for little kids), or use it as a door stop if you want. It doesn’t matter to me! Once you win it, that’s between you and your DVDs!

To be entered for a chance to win, just leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4th, 2008. One comment per person, with a valid email address, please. Winner to be determined by random number generation and The Force. (I know, I know; wrong franchise.)

Ready? Go!

*With my apologies to Jeff Foxworthy for stealing modifying his line.


  1. Count me in as a geek

  2. I’m thinking the dad would like this one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This would make a great gift for my favorite geek!

  4. Yeah another contest!

  5. Please enter me.

  6. OK, I’m a geek….

  7. My DH is the geek and he would love this!

  8. Man, my husband would love this!

  9. perfect father’s day gift!

  10. This would be the best gift for my geeky brother!!!

  11. Me want! Me want! Me want!

    Oh, wait…this blog is called “want not”, isn’t it? Oops…. LOL


  12. My husband loves Stargate with all of his heart.

  13. This would be a great gift for my own geek, my hubby!

  14. I’ll take it!

  15. I’m trying to get my son to face up to the fact that, yes, he’s a geek.
    thanks, Mir!

  16. The Uncle would love this!!!

  17. count me in

  18. Oh, this would be perfect for my father-in-awe…

  19. Enter me please!

  20. My brother loves Stargate! And he’s getting married. Wedding gift? Check.

  21. My son would love me even more if I won this. I might even get a hug and a kiss. (from a 12 yo this would be huge).

  22. We love Stargate. My hubs is moving in 2 weeks and I’m stuck here until we can sell this house. This would make the best Father’s Day present possible for him to enjoy in his tiny, horrific room that he will be living in.

  23. My Mother-in-Law LOVES Sci-Fi and is living in Scotland to go to school/get her PhD, and has no TV, just DVDs that we give her to watch (which help distract her from her homesickness). So if I won this, it’d be a wonderful Birthday/Christmas gift–and I could become the favorite daughter-in-law! (I’m in competition with 3 other wonderful girls here, I need all the help I can get!!!) Ok, I know you didn’t really want to read all that, but, well, it seemed nice to share.

  24. I’ve only seen a couple of these episodes. Pretty please, Mir?

  25. We’re big stargate fans and haven’t seen this but it could be interesting. Thanks!

  33. Being a geek is the new thing. So very cool.

  34. Oh, my husband would LOVE this! (Okay, I would too…)

  35. My husband would be so proud!

  36. Yes! We’ve never watched the animated one. But my husband is a huge Stargate fan and got me hooked on it – partially because it was the only way to get him to sit on the couch and watch tv with me.
