If we were to cram all of our favorite geeky happenings from 2014 into one moment of sheer nerdsanity, it would involve riding on a hoverboard while watching the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer from the safety of a zombie-proof log cabin while eating potato salad for elevenses.
To follow that up, we would cosplay in a Peter Capaldi 12th Doctor outfit, strap on a jetpack, put some Lego female scientists together and then go outside and play on a Groot swing while contemplating the cosmos and the fate of the Rosetta mission's plucky little comet lander Philae.
Narrowing a year of epic geekiness down to just 10 highlights was a challenge. A spirited debate took place as to whether the Marvel universe-shaking "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" or the humorous "Guardians of the Galaxy" should be included. An avalanche of Groot-related fan projects, like aand a , helped put "Guardians" over the top.
and were two other tempting candidates that came close. The year's embarrassment of hoverboard riches, however, was an easy call. If I could squeeze one more topic into the top 10, I'd go with the announcement of the a momentous occasion that sparked renewed interest in David Lynch, Agent Cooper, owls and damn good coffee.
This has certainly been a memorable year for geek happenings, a fitting sequel to, lightsabers and Ben Affleck-Batman announcements. Did your favorite geek moment of 2014 make it onto our list? Tell us all about it the comments.
