time for a stupid quiz says I'm a Cool Nerd God.  What are you?  Click here!


  1. Sort of a fun test, but some of the questions really offer no sensible answer for me answer to the Carl Sagan question would be a simple "no," for example, which isn't offered as a choice ... apparently the nerd world is divided into people who read Carl Sagan and people who laugh at the word "bookshelves." I can't quite fathom the joke, if it is one.

    Another one that stood out: "group 4" in the "pick one" section contains nothing I have to begin with: I don't own a single movie T-Shirt, I don't drink beer, and I don't own a TV set. Lots of other questions are similarly skewed (and not in the fun way, where the result is a clever joke ...)

    So, with that said, mine came out "Uber Cool Light-Weight Nerd," with:

    Sci/Math: 20%
    Tech/Comp: 7%
    SciFi/Comic: 55%
    Hist/Lit: 58%
    Dumb/Dork: 8%

    I'd have hoped to ping higher as a history nerd (which I consider myself) but since they lump it with literature (which I find tedious) I guess that score, at least, hits the mark :) I suspect my SciFi/Comic score is mostly based on knowing the Glen Larson answers ...

  2. Sorry to inflict it on you both, but it seemed everybody in hobbyfan's gundam forum had one, so I took the test. The "read a book?LOL!1" tone of some of the questions irked me to no end, but I haven't grown out of the old + and - Geek Code, and hoped this would be amusing.

    In a related note, my word verification starts with "usux".

    My title is "Uber Cool High Nerd".

    This was a fun test, but to silly to put on my blog.

    B.t.w. what Traveller Major Race Are You?

    Cool History / Lit Geek

    I didn't write down the percentages.

    I had the exact same objections as sjohn. Many times I was forced to pick an untrue answer because of supposedly humerous reasons.
