How nerdy are we?

11 08 2008

To stop you all from whining about your low scores on the very difficult and specialised Ultimate Nerd Space Quiz, I have put together a short, but sweet, general-nerd-knowledge quiz.

Click here to play!

700 points out of the 1000 qualifies you irrevocably as a real NERD!

900/1000 – and I got the last one wrong on purpose because maxing out wasn’t something I really WANTED to do on that one πŸ˜‰

I do love your quizzes for a few minutes’ distraction – I’m waiting for the cross country to start from Hong Kong and this just filled in the time nicely, thank you ❀ πŸ™‚

I’m sure my score on the space quiz would have been 0 but on this one 800 so I am a nerd after all! πŸ˜†

I knew it! All nerds here!
The last question about the pills should not be looked at from a personal view, but from a nerd-view, would a real nerd want to know the meaning of the matrix? Or slip quitly back into their humdrum lives?
It’s a moot question, I do not think there is really a 100% score on this last question.

So, very well done everybody!

James and Saudi, wich question did you super-nerds fail? I’m dying to know!

I missed the pill one. I did not give it much thoughts. I just know went with my instinct against taking meds, unless I am real sick. By the way that was real mean putting a real tough one at the end. I was 1 question away from a perfect score LOL

Sigh, with a bit of cheating (I looked up GNU), I just managed to get 700 points. Better than the 700/2000 I got on the previous quiz, but not convincingly nerdy. I guess I will just have to live with the fact that I merely a nerd wannabee, despite being a computer professional.
I hope my collegues don’t find out…

Yes, to answer your question…I am a megalomaniac.

And pathetically I only got a 700 on this quiz.

Oh me Goodness, wasn’t the last quick nerdy enough? I feel faint..i…feel….

DUMB!

Saudi in US, the pill question is ambiguous, it’s just that little nerdy extra, but I still think that with 900 you are vΓ©ry nerdy!!!

MJK: I don’t agree with you: it’s the nerdy thing to do, to google whatever you don’t know! Strangely enough I was sure you’d know that one, because you Γ re a nerd, I know you!

Nevis, 700 is solid nerd! You’re in!

Specs, the mere fact you show up here is a badge of nerdiness!!!
did you do the quiz?

It does not have an award? I did it bcs it does not need taking a VISA! πŸ˜€

I got 1000 on the test. Dissapponting. That’s why i am on both flickr and blogging actually. Remember our chat? lol

Jeez, wasn’t the other one nerdy enough? I’m gonna fail miserably so i’m not going to do this at all!

Specs,

This one is a little easier. It is like the GED for earning the nerd title. I think Aafke’s goal is to surround herself with as many nerds as possible so she can feel normal πŸ™‚

Come to think of it, that may help me too. Thanks Aafke.

Queen Shahrzad you are also the queen of NERDS!!!
No, I’m not going to go on Flickr, facebook or anything else!!!! I have two blogs and two websites to run!!!!
We will get that visum!!!!!

Specs, actually you don’t have to do the quiz. Just blog!

Saudi in US: Spot on! Finally I’m ”normal” πŸ˜€
And you are welcome here in the nerd-home-base!

The next quiz (next week) is going to be about horses, just so you all can prepare!

I’m sorry but I just didn’t get it…a lot of those questions just did not seem nerd-related to me…I thought nerdy stuff was like bits and bytes and algorhythm type questions…not with sci-fi movies or about pills… wouldn’t those topics fall into other categories?

And I even forgot my score before starting this comment but I know I bombed it miserably.

12 08 2008
Aafke

Kim, yes, I did! Especially for you!

American Bedu: Bits and bytes and such are Geeks, lonely computer addicts with blogs and a vast collection of StarTrek paraphenelia, watching ”the Matrix” 100 times, serious glasses, and a Wiki-brain are Nerds.
The pills are a ”Matrix” thing: Morpheus offers Neo two pills: the red one will show him the Matrix, the blue one will make him forget his search and he will live his life as before. Naturally Neo takes the red pill, thereby becoming disconnected from the Matrix, and waking up in the ”real” world. As it turns out we are all stuck in great machines and the life we lead is a computersimulation. Neo then safes humanity from the machines.
Typical Nerd-movie.

Aafke,

You lost me on the comment….maybe I need to take one of the red Matrix Neo pills or something and this all will become clearer….

BTW, I like the term “wiki-brain.” Weren’t there cute Star Wars characters called Wikis?

(beating it now, fighting Nerdom while she is still barely ahead…)

American bedu, I don’t know what to say…. this last comment…. it’s miracle you got any points at all on the quizzes!!!!
No, there was a huge hairy creature called a Wookie, and small irritating ”cute” walking teddybears, called Ewoks.
Sigh…

The term wiki-brain is freshly invented especially to write the answer to your comment, this is the first time the word has been used!

Keep this up sweety and you’ll qualify as a dumb blonde!!!

Just googled wikibrain, of course it allready exists, but not used in the same manner πŸ˜€

I think I was mixing up Wookies and Ewoks and came up with Wikis. Oh well…

dumb blonde? Who me? (batting eyelashes) (LOL)
