    :( I only have geekish tendancies :(

    I must force myself into other aspects of Geekdom. Just for doing that, I think I should earn 50+ points!

    Hrmph. I'm honestly not sure if I've just been insulted or gyped.

    -Le Penguin,
    who just realized that there wasn't a single Simpsons reference on that whole test...

    78.10651% - Dysfunctional Geek

    You know how I am always joking about being the fat, loner kid at school that no one liked and everyone mocked? Yeah, that was true. It doesn't help that I watch WAY too much TV. Of course, the movie section alone should put any one of us on the map.

    I'm still a little suspicious of the whole test. It seems heavily geared toward programmers and gamers, while other geek subjects (SW, Trek, Simpsons, library worms) get only cursory mentions here and there.

    I would've thought that a person with six different geek-related tattoos (comics, SW, Simpsons, Chuck Jones, paleontology, fantasy fiction) could come out with a score higher than 49%.

    sigh. I guess I'm not the geek I thought I was. Oh, well. Back to my JFK conspiracy thesis...

    For me, I think it was the computers and movies that put me over the edge, although yes, I have read dictionaries and technical manuals for fun.

    Everyone put a check in "Lied heavily to improve your score on this test", right? Right?

    33% Super Geek I think?

    For a long, long, long time,(think old boards) I've been working on my own little fan force geek test. Nothing fancy, you have to come up with your own score. I guess I should work hard on this and have some beta testing, huh?

    I beat out the Goat, but fell short of Destiny and the Penguin. ;) If I knew more about computer languages, I'd rank much higher on the geek scale...

    Strange, I know absolutely nothing about computer laguages, I didn't click the "lie" box to boost up my score, and I'm neither a gamer or female. Under those circumstances, perhaps my score isn't so bad.

    Ever pouty,

    -Le Penguin
    "Nih!"
