  • Alan McDonald

    You beat me; I only got 87 High-Nerd.

  • Davros

    Beat me by one Pete LOL Supreme Nerd 90, but I reckon I nerdeprived myself by being pedantic and deconstructing the questions

  • Alan McDonald

    Davros,

    What is the problem with your computer? You should be able to fix it with your #90 Nerd brain!

  • Davros

    Sadly Alan my Computer has a 98 Nerd rating πŸ™

  • maca

    There’s something wrong with that test, i only got 50. I mean, how is that even possible!?!?

  • Mick Fealty

    Ahem, 7%. It says, “you are probably cool”.

  • pakman

    “I am nerdier than 9% of all people”

    So, not as cool as Mick!

  • peteb

    So… Mick is probably ‘cool’.. *ahem*.. and I’m the nerdiest one here… So it goes.

  • Mick Fealty

    I’ll go with that emphasis on probably!

  • davidbrew

    hah ! Only 15% . I am the king of cool

  • cg

    6% so I beat all of you πŸ˜‰

  • CavanMan

    6%. i feel stupid now.:(

  • Vera

    90% Supreme nerd. Pretty damn nerdy for a girl.

  • Vera

    90% Supreme Nerd. That’s pretty damn high for a girl.

  • George

    5% I need to go out less.

  • PS

    6% but then I think actually taking this test should qualify anybody for at least a 20+ score!

  • George

    Not if you have nothing better to do it shouldn’t PS.

  • IJP

    Seems Nationalists are scoring lower than Unionists…!

    I was 12%, solid ‘Centre’ then…

  • PaddyCanuck

    24%, phew I am relieved.

  • peteb

    Watch those labels IJP.. it’s a Nerd Score – nothing else.

  • slug9987

    Unfortunately I haven’t done a GPA so I was unable to complete the questionnaire.

  • peteb

    slug

    Try “Don’t know/care” for that question.

  • StrayToaster

    I got 65%. And considering I haved used wx quite a bit, build compilers and have had a gun pulled on me by ESR, I think I have managed to survive.

  • peteb

    Sheesh.

  • StrayToaster

    Now, now Pete, jealousy is so unbecoming. πŸ˜›

  • peteb

    I was just wondering where the 9% of people, MORE nerdy than I am, actually are.

    Making love to their computers πŸ˜‰

  • peteb

    Thank you, cg. We’ll get back to you with our decision about the comedian’s spot..

  • cg

    LOL

  • IJP

    peteb

    Glad to see the ‘labels’ have, subsequently been shown not to work and that we are in fact a bunch of mongrels.

    Now, there’s a lesson there somewhere…!
