Hate 3D? Then You're A Geek

It's January again, which means two things:
  1. We get to find out what's new and exciting at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and
  2. We get to read dozens of stories from self-proclaimed experts declaring their "hatred" toward 3D and telling us that 3D is "dead" (once again).
Well, I've got news for you. If you hate 3D you are a geek.

It's true. And here's why:
  1. You probably already wear glasses, and therefore don't want to wear another pair. You express your annoyance with having to wear a second pair by calling the 3D glasses "ridiculous" or "absurd". Sorry, but coke bottle glasses = GEEK. If you've got a problem with that then it's time to consider contacts or laser eye surgery.
  2. You like to say things like, "when they can make a hologram TV let me know". A hologram TV? Can you say Trekkie? (Or is it Trecker?) I don't know, but nothing screams out GEEK more than a Trekkie.
  3. You complain that 3D hurts your eyes. I'm sorry, but your eye muscles are just like every other muscle in your body, if they're being used differently or for the first time they are going to feel a little strained. This is the same reason you are still a 90-pound weakling (or a 300-pound sloth). The moment you tried to do a little exercise it felt "uncomfortable" and you gave up and sat down on your fat ass to watch Star Wars for the 200th time.
  4. You complain that 3D makes you feel nauseated. My guess is real life makes you nauseated. Take an aspirin. Enough said.
You don't like 3D? Get over it! Or just shut up already and let the rest of us enjoy it.

  1. I love this article! I believe you hit the nail right on the head with your points! All the people who claim to hate 3D should sit back and relax and not ruin it for the rest of us who actually want to experience their entertainment with an added dimension.

    Basically if you don't want want 3D, don't buy it, but don't be so vocal about hating it because that could ruin it for the individuals who want the choice.
