Every year we wish awesome geek actor/writer/gamer Wil Wheaton a happy birthday. Wil turns 42 today, an age every geek is surely pleased to be. We always wish we could get just the right gift for him, but what do you get for the geek who has everything?

Well, he answered this on Twitter two years ago for his 40th birthday. To paraphrase, he asked everyone to just celebrate his birthday in the spirit of his personal catchphrase (his fans will understand).

Considering we are a family blog, we can’t quite bring ourselves to use the exact phraseology. However, being something of a Latin geek (4 years in junior high and high school), I figured translating it into a classical language would make it all better.

As such, we at GeekDad would like to formally declare, henceforth from today, that every July 29th shall be celebrated as Nolite Irrumator Day. Happy Birthday, Wil!
