2009: Geeks everywhere dance-dance revolutionaryly at work instead of pointing and clicking. Everbody laughs at them.
2010: Geeks grow more athletic and elegant each year. People stop laughing and go to the gym.
2011: You can tell a geek by his stealthy cat- and Matrix-like movements and his aerobics trained body. American Football players and Gangstaz are uncool because they can't navigate to a file and bluetooth it to a mobile while simultaneously dancing to the World of Warcraft theme.
2012: Nothing, of course. The world ends in 2012, you dork! Didn't you know that? (google for 2012!)
