New poll, probably written just for a.netters.

Not surprisingly, I scored big on this one.

Ho-hum,
Leanne

You are 66% geek
You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough. Dating tip: Don't date a geek of the same persuasion as you. You'll constantly try to out-geek the other.

OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.

Well, I kinda knew this already . . .

Now if only there were a test called:

Are you an Prick?  biggrin

Well this is non_aviation. While there are a few geeks in here, ok maybe the understatement of the year, but the majority of geeks can be found over in Aviation Hobby and Aviaton Polls. Plus I suspect if you were a true geek (where's Thom@s?) then you a) wouldn't even look in this thread or b) not reply with your dazzling high percentage due to fear of persecution!

You are 26% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.


You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!


Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!


You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

You know you are a geek when...
# You look at a movie trailer and think, "I have that typeface."
# You set up an automatic rerouting of your e-mail to your pager.
# You get sudden attacks of bittersweet nostalgic feelings when thinking about your long-lost old Commodore 64, Sinclair ZX-81, TRS-80 (or whatever hardware you were raised on), and use large amounts of money/time trying to track one down.
# You are wearing ten year old spectacles, made of steel.
