  1. I think Craiggers scored higher than me only cause of BSG. I never use the word Frak. But, Craiggers, if you want me to dominiate, feel free to ask! 🙂


  2. hahaha 13!! i could only name 6 Star Wars characters. And the cherry on the Nerd Pie for me was that me and a bunch of my friends STARTED the chess club in 5th grade HAHA

  3. I scored a 9! I actually feel that my score should be way higher too. Maybe a PART TWO is in order?

    @Enrico – sorry about that! I fixed it as soon as my Internet started working and made it 8.
    @Mo – how can you get 2/22 when there are 25 questions?
    @Ty – what the eff is a “gemitus”
    @Ryan – how can u get .5 from #11? Do you know 4 elements?
    @Kris – I think that starting a Chess Club gets you an automatic 25.

  4. @Adam Now that eleven has a number, my score is up to 9. Further explanation of the 0.5 would probably earn me another point.

  5. It’s Latin for “sigh.” Which expresses both my nerdiness and my disappointment that I didn’t score higher.

  6. Mine remains at 4 because I figured that’s what he meant so just went with my own interpretation of question 11 rather than the reality of what it said. Reality is highly over-rated.

  7. One Nerd to rule them all, One Nerd to find them, One Nerd to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

    That’s just a little poem I wrote about how awesome I am.

  8. I have to change mine to 3. It turns out I do know some Latin.
    How many action figures does the average 12 year old have? I have 5. 3 courtesy of Polt.

  9. If I ever get in Craigger’s basement HE’LL be the one needing the safe word.
    Michelle M., sweetie, 5 barely counts. You should see the amount I have in the library. 🙂


  10. Not only have I played Magic: The Gathering, I kicked ass at that game and still have all my cards. With that said, I scored a 12.

  11. @John I played Magic: The Gathering for about 2 days in High School. Then I sold all my cards for $40 and bought CDs. Soundgarden’s Superunknown and Pearl Jam’s Ten, if I remember correctly. Music = less nerdy than Magic: The Gathering.

  12. 7.

    No offense, but this list is lame. It covers only Star Treik, Star Wars, and a few kids’ games? Really? I mean, I love me some space opera, but science and fiction nerdliness is MUCH BROADER than this commercial stuff.

    Have I read every Heinlein book ever written, even his non-fiction? How about Asimov? Can I name all the characters and both endings of Blade Runner? What does the obelisk mean in 2001? Who first used superluminal travel in science fiction? Do I know what a black hole is? What about a worm hole? Have I read the original pulp forerunners of modern sci-fi? Why does Ellison prefer the term “spec fic”? How many Nebula-winning books have I read?

    Just sayin’.

  13. Have I mentioned I’m lovin’ Mr. Sombrero’s new avatar? Snazzy.

    Oh and did we ever doubt Mush’s superiority in all things save for meat consumption?
