Thank you, bbrewer. I was wondering. I'm not the expert here, but that only marginally sounds like the geeks I know.

my favorite geeks have not (yet) been diagnosed with asperger's syndrome. or bite the head's off of chickens. nytimes magazine had a great story about asperger's about a month ago. more common in little boys than girls, about 5-to-1 i think.
