I drive an old Honda because I told my wife I would get a new car when this one died...that was 12 years ago....My Honda just won't die.

bf... yea... years ago we drove a friend's Honda to N California for them when they moved. It was an older sedan but we just loved it, ran like a champ and comfy. The next vehicle we bought was a Passport and we still have it. It rocks!

(I would trade it for a Lexus if i was prettier and made more money though)

And there's a double curse if you're not so handsome AND a nerd. You're completely shafted. Oh, wait.

That rule is generally true but in the geekdoms it is just about opposite. Virtually every well off guy I know who came out of this field is certainly not good looking by most standards.

But what about us geeks (40 years in IT) who are poor AND good-looking?

You will likely never be accepted by the geek herd if you are good looking. Also, being good looking often accompanies a social life which again will get a person ostracized in this field unless social life means WoW or similar geeky online haunt.

I present the women of TechTV. Yes, Ms. Webb is a true, brainy geek.

First Nerds are different than Geeks and Second the "good looking Geek" rule does not apply to women. For the current reigning queen of the hot Geeks I present Olivia Munn:
