Journal Cy Guy's Journal: Pure Nerd 7

            Pure Nerd

            82 % Nerd, 47% Geek, 43% Dork

            For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

Congratulations!

    69 % Nerd, 34% Geek, 8% Dork

    You scored higher than 99% on nerdiness
    You scored higher than 99% on geekosity
    You scored higher than 99% on dork points
    Huh?

    You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

    Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a poc

      i scored similarly.

      Modern, Cool Nerd
      65 % Nerd, 78% Geek, 17% Dork

      however:

      You scored higher than 99% on nerdiness
      You scored higher than 99% on geekosity
      You scored higher than 99% on dork points
      • Go US!!! *high-fives* :D

        Dang, I didn't keep the percentages. Hmm, I'm starting to wonder if those numbers are faked. How can someone score as 17% dork but then score higher than 99% on dork points? Wha???

        That picture is comedy tho. Shouldn't it be some real cool nerd guy, tho? Like House or John Zorn?

      Oh and you get fines for library books even though you live across from the library right? I laugh every time I see that sig (stoolpigeon's I think) :-)

  • No, I'm NOT a nerd!
    Nerds are smart.

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.

Working...
