    What!!!!!
    I don’t understand…. not only do I worship at the altar of technology… but I have been doing so since early 82! I tithe more than 10% of my wages to the techno gods. I am a faithful handmaiden of the electronic deities.

    I introduced theBrother to D&D and Role playing over 25 years ago, sucked in all of his friends and helped him run a gaming shop. I can bootleg Citadel miniatures for heavens sake, even the plastic ones!

    Not only have I been a member of the SCA, but I have an AOA, the last device approved with a dragon on it and held office! I was a herald for crying out loud.

    I should have cheated. *sob*

    Not too far off of you, thefrey, and I don’t have anywhere near your impressive geek credentials! 😉

    My guess is that some geek along the line dropped the ball; they’re not very good with sports, you know (groans all around, I know).

    Must’ve gotten bonue points for being able to honestly say that I’ve designed and built a nuclear device 8)

    i only got 27.21893%. 😮 ok, i admit i know very little about computers, etc, etc…. unfortunately, there was no questions like:
    do you collect dragons?
    do you own a massive Star trek t-shirt collection?
    do you own a Locutus of Borg porcelain bust?
    do you own script books for Star Trek TV series?
    do you write original science fiction?
    and, of course, there’s plenty of other stuff……
    does that make me a geek, or just plain sad????

    Im not a geek.

    It just so happens that I, and some of my like-minded friends, are not part of the human race.

    Whoa…

    geek envy…..so why do you suppose you check 5 boxes just for being a female of the species anyway???

    Huh?

    I know I’ve not kept up with this geek thing for a few years but I still thought I’d be higher than that

    I suggest we put out a hit on both Headge and MuadDib. Won’t improve our scores any, but it would make us feel better. 😛

    Oh, and for gloating…. perhaps a kneekapping is in order before Muad meets that great geek in the sky. 😀

    What do ya think ?

    Sounds like a plan, but given the nature of the test I’m not sure if they’ll miss their knees.

    Just taking out their televisions should be enough 😛

    Now that’s just downright evil. But at least you’ll leave the computer alone.

    Well heck. I took this again, and this time came in just over, rather than just under Major Geek. But I also now understand why I am not scoring in the techo-geek-god range.

    Age Discrimination!! Yes, that is it. Most of the questions are present tense. Do I own….. no, not now, but I did. Do you do…. again not now, but I did!

    I spit upon this test! I have been there, done that, and moved into new forms of geek-dom that have not yet been recognized as geek traits. 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛 😛

    You’re all going to hate me even more, I retook the test and got:

    73.9654% – Geek God.

    Now kneel before your God and worship!

    Ah, I’ll live I guess. I shall just have to quietly savor my role as the early adopter for my little part of the universe and take comfort in the fine relationship I have with the Techno-Gods.

    but… but… if the wording of the questions had been changed to ‘have you ever’…… 😛 😛 😛 😉

    Hi Fellow Sci-Fi Fans,
    I’m definitely 95-100% Geek; I’m on the computer a lot; both in the morning (or whenever I’m awake) & at night untill midnight; since I use the family’s computer in my mom’s room, we have a mutual understanding that I can have the computer till midnight, then I have to turn it off. It’s fine since, I’m online every other day or every 3rd when I’m at work; plus, it gives me time to do other things, offline. I also like chatting online, posting on boards, posting Bulletins on Myspace, playing Spider Solitare, working on my web sites & a whole lot more; & I’m having fun in the process.

    Happy 2005,
    Jhevz 😉

    If anyone answered all those questions then they must be a geek.

    The list was waaaayyy to long for a non-geek like me to answer.

    I DO admit to taking apart every electronic and electrical piece of equipment I own. But they needed looking at.
    That does NOT make me a geek.

    I do admit to falling asleep in uni with my programming books open and waking up 3 hours later to toss off my running shoes (because they hurt) and then falling back asleep still in my clothes.

    I do admit to prefer working overtime on juicy projects than go out on dates.

    I do admit to helping more than half my class pass their exams.
    I admit to always carrying a Sharp-506P in my pocket.

    I admit to many things but a geek I am not.
    I will not go to Geeks Anonymous.
    I refuse to discuss it anymore.

    ohhh trance…that’s really scary.
    You actually completed the test??!!!
    Get help!!!
