Just. Wow.

Computer science majors. LUGs (not Lesbians Until Graduation--admittedly a very weird social trend, but a Linux Users club!) and Sororities. Oh, and nerd makeovers.

I think it's a very bad combo, but these guys are hopeful. It's like Reality TV, only...real.

Looking to recruit more women, and perhaps date some sorority girls, the largest computer club at Washington State University hopes to hold a "nerd auction." The idea is to trade their computer skills to sorority girls in exchange for a makeover and, possibly, a date.

"You can buy a nerd and he'll fix your computer, help you with stats homework, or if you're really adventurous, take you to dinner!" Ben Ford, president of the Linux Users Group, said on its Web site recently.

Today's geeks got it all wrong. One must carefully stalk them begining in freshman calculus, then make your move the night before your electromagnetics final.

/15 years and going strong...
