ThinkGeek.com are running a competition for US Father's Day ... but it's only open to people over 21 years of age (as at 6 June, 2011) in a few countries: United States, Canada (void in Quebec), Belgium, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.
Power up your patriarch this Father's Day!
You less than three your dad. Maybe he's the kind of guy who sliced your hand off with a lightsaber, or maybe your first memory as you stepped off the operation table is him in a lab coat, cowering in the corner and muttering wildly about his "creation." Ah, memories.
What better way to honor your tenuous, sometimes dangerous relationship this Father's Day than with our (Even More) Ultimate GeekDad Giveaway?
Our awesome prize pile for 2011 includes:
Power up your patriarch this Father's Day, June 19, by entering our contest below by 12 noon ET on June 17, 2011. We'll announce our randomly chosen winner the evening of June 17 so you'll be able to deliver the good news on Father's Day.

After you enter, you'll have the chance to share a story, anecdote, or other texty tribute to the father in your life. Ken Denmead, publisher and editor of WIRED GeekDad, will read your responses and publish his favorites on the GeekDad blog.
