Our friends Nitrozac and Snaggy over at GeekCulture / The Joy of Tech probably thought they hit the height of geek honors earlier this year when they were shown in Steve Jobs’ keynote address at Macworld SF 2008. They might have thought that was as good as it could get until they were alerted by one of their fans on Friday that the site was used for one of answers than that night’s Jeopardy.
The answer shown at right was worth $400 under the category “What’s That on the Top of Your Head?” The correct question (“What is a propeller?”) was given by contestant Gwynne Ash, a university professor from Austin, Texas, who unfortunately didn’t manage to win the game.
Even though I would have known the correct question, if I had been competing on Jeopardy that night, the question I would have blurted out would have been, “How cool is that!?”
Geek Culture’s propeller beanies are available in many styles and, yes, you really can have up to three propellers on one.
