It didn't tell me who I ranked as. It showed a picture of the Big Bang theory peeps. I got 37 out of 300 and it said:

"You’ve definitely got some nerdy tendencies, but you’re not really a *true* geek quite yet. Aspire to geekiness, and a geek you shall become."

That's funny cause I have said the same thing about myself. I'm not a total nerd, but I have some nerd tendencies. I can speak geek.

One of the questions should have asked if you post online, followed up by have you posted online over 25,000 comments.

That link was on a former co-worker's facebook. He got 189 out of 300. I got 15. For most of the list I was like WTF is this jibba jabba?!?

Some of the crap I got should no even count. I own and old Atari, original Nintendo. Woo hoo. Me and half the kids that grew up in that era.

Seen all the Star Wars movie. Same thing.

But would you boycott chick fil a? You didn't even go there. I would boycott a restaurant who had a cook as a convicted murderer (a discussion we actually had) regardless of how good their pork-fritters were
<quoted text>
Don't presume to know what I do or do not know. I have a few liberal friends. I am friends with them because we enjoy each other's company, regardless of where we stand on social issues. I have a gay niece who is getting gay-married this year. She is still my niece and I still love her, even though I oppose re-writing the definition of marriage. I do not support politicians who do not agree with my political views. Republican senator Mark Kirk is the first to pop into mind
<quoted text>
Many liberals believe in gun rights, anymore I don't think it's about their personal beliefs, they just realize it's a fight they cannot win. If it's a friend of mine, I really don't care what they believe in as long as we get along. If it's a politician I'm voting for, there are other issues that concern me than just those two, I'd have to look at those before making a decision.
Whoa whoa whoa... This is a well stated, articulate, non-nut job response. Who are you and what did you do with Edog?

I got 30. I tend to surround myself with geeks, while not actually being one myself. I recognized everything they were asking about.

Don't know why I am surprised that you only got 15.

Yes, I got points for the old gaming systems too. Almost all my points were computer or technology related. I still know dos. Have done emulation. Have changed hardware on computers. I don't program, but I know my stuff on the hardware side. I've overclocked both a CPU and GPU. 90% of my points, I racked up at the end.

You would think this group never heard of ( or saw or owned ) Joy of Sex ( quaint these days- it was published in the 70's, pre-AIDS) or browsed that aisle at Borders when they were open or Barnes and Noble

heard of the title. Never seen it. Never really knew what it was. Could have been a porno for all I know. And nope. Never browsed a book store for porn. There's better places for that. Like the rack of magazines behind the counter ath the quickie mart.

I got an 8 - not very geeky. But they didn't ask me ANYTHING about Weird Al.

And I knew what a borny was, but I am not one, simply because a brony is a MALE fan of My Littlle Pony.

Oh, and I just saw this. Limbaugh weighing in on the Colbert hire.

LOL!
By the sound of that article, you would believe Limbaugh thinks David Letterman is a conservative.

Can you imagine Limbaugh as the host replacement for Letterman?

It's obvious. Most republicans have no sense of humor. ;)

Sweet! I'll take a couple!
I imagine this will eventually help people who feel the need to correct their bodies gender-wise.
