I was having a conversation with a friend about how geeky and uncool I am --- and also the fact that I am raising a second generation of geeks.

So I decided to take the test and see how bad it was

http://www.thudfactor.com/geekquiz.php

Looks like I'm not too uncool after all

Final Score:


You are 30% geekYou are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.
Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.


You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

18 % Geek. Boy I thought it would be much higher. I'm from a Geek family, inbred engineers.

OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.

Funny thing is, in "real life" I am often a "geek liaison" in my profession... Have a EE degree. And run Linux on my home server(s).

I told you that going with black and grey stuff is just stupid mockery of the silly doom-and-gloom Goths.

ignore fashion.

WTF are you doing with a "wardrobe" anyway? geeks don't own wardrobes or wear "outfits" or "ensembles."

are you sure you're not a fashion model masquerading as a geek? :

okay, pheft and gonzo take it so far. I come in at 40 percent. I may not be king of the hill, but at least I don't have to sell propane for a living. Frau, can I live in your neighborhood?

LOL - SHURE!

We can invite Gonzo and Pheft over to play RPG's and watch the Best of Star Trek CD collection

Just be forewarned that nobody in MY circle looks like Kirsten Dunst - especially ME!!!

I think you folks have confused me with one of the other among various kinds of geeks.

I don't play RPGs, I don't watch Star Trek, and I don't read poorly written sci-fi/fantasy pulp fiction.

I didn't win the Science Fair or Math Fair.

my name isn't Myron, or Stanley, or Milton, or Poindexter. and it's not Sheldon either. Sheldon does your taxes. Sheldon doesn't give his girlfriends orgasms.

I never wore glasses in school.

don't own a pocket protector.

couldn't use a slide rule even if you paid me to fake it.

but if it makes y'all feel better to cubbyhole me into the sillier kinds of geek stereotypes, go ahead.

I'll just keep correcting you, like the kind of geek I am.

I thought I would do much worse- after all, I use a computer with TWO flat screen monitors. Maybe it was because the only names on the list of musicians that I knew were John Coltrane and Miles Davis...

Heee Heee - well then I fit the stereotype better than you do, Gonzo!!!!!

I DID play D&D (paper & pencil 20-sided die, etc) with my brothers and friends in my parents' basement in the early 1980's.

I have occasionally watched Star Trek (original, TNG, and DSN), though it doesn't dominate my existence, nor have I ever attempted to speak Klingon.

I ENTERED a science fair - but didn't win

My name isn't Edith or Hazel or Velma - and I've never attempted to give a girl an orgasm (myself excepted of course). But my ex-husband's name was Sean, and he wasn't that hot at it.

I had glasses AND braces in school. By senior year they were both gone and I made the cheerleading squad -- but was never accepted by the "clique".

Slide rules are obsolete - where's your programmable calculator???

The phrase "teledildonics" never comes up in the quiz. I think it's a hoax.
