Happy Towel and Geek Day!

And hey, 57 percent of Americans consider it a compliment to be called a geek, says a survey by the information technology staffing company Modis. Still, more self-identified geeks were more comfortable being labeled a geek than a nerd.

Geek Day also coincides with Towel Day, when fans of the late author Douglas Adams carry a towel in his honor. In "Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy," Adams makes it clear that a towel is all you really need to be prepared for whatever the galaxy can throw at you. An excerpt:

"A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors … you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough."
