Our Most Ultimate GeekDad Giveaway (So Far)

Squig cake

Step away from the cloning vat.

Listen, we know that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and that you'd happily clone your GeekDad for both scientific and personal reasons, but current technology just isn't up to the task. (Besides, you're taking that axiom a bit too literally.) How about this--we'll give you a chance to flatter your Dad with the next best thing to DNA duplication.

Enter our Most Ultimate GeekDad Giveaway (So Far) for a chance to win your GeekDad a fabbster 3D Printer with all of the trimmings along with a 32GB ASUS Transformer TF300T Tablet, a $1000 ThinkGeek shopping spree and a loot list too long to go into here. Not only will entering prove that you are the Most Valuable Offspring, but you'll get one step closer to your cloning dreams with that 3D Printer!

To Enter:

  1. Compose a texty tribute to the father(s) in your life
  2. Surf on over here to enter your vital information
  3. ???
  4. Profit.

Need a little inspiration?

Here are a couple of entries that we've gotten so far:

Sarah's GeekDad: Thanks to my Dad, I'm a Trekkie. At the age of 5, I remember curling up with him and watching The Next Generation, The Original Series, and Deep Space 9. He also was the only one who could debate over the relevance of Monty Python's Holy Grail with me. I love my geeky dad!

@Loottheroom's GeekDad: My office was throwing out an old server cabinet. Rather than just chuck it on a junk heap, I persuaded them to let me take it. My dad drove the hour out to my office, helped me get the thing into his van (and MAN are those things heavy) and back out to his garage. There, we removed the internals, screwed wood shelves onto the runners, and converted it into a wardrobe. Then we painted it blue. Why blue? Well it'd be a damn silly looking TARDIS in any other color. So now, I have an ex-server cabinet TARDIS wardrobe with working lights. It beats the hell out of the particle board and wood-grain decal Ikea thing it replaced.

What are you waiting for? Father's Day is coming! Enter!

meaningless icon! One entry per person? Per physical address? Or as many as I have email addresses (infinity)?

meaningless icon! @Devin Baillie Once per human! We'll notice and vaporize any duplicate entries.

meaningless icon! @Raevyn W. So the script I wrote to submit 1000 entries per minute is useless? Damn.
Devin Baillie said this 2297 days ago.
meaningless icon! How many physical addresses do you have, Devin? And do you count multiple NICs in one computer?
Rosuav said this 2297 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Devin Baillie Indeed. Points for effort, though!
Raevyn W. said this 2297 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Rosuav I was referring to mailing addresses, of which I have 3. If you refer to NICs, then I have access to 50 or 60.

meaningless icon! My father wasn't a geek. Am I still able to enter the contest?
