Pure Nerd
73 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 17% 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.

Was Keats a Geek?

On First Looking Into Fitzgerald's Indictment

A Pre-Emptive Poem(10-26-05)
From A Keats Ghost To GI:

Much have I witnessed the Scandal of Bush
And many awful lies and outrages seen;
Round many breaches have I been
Which bards in fealty to Republic hold.
Oft of one great Injury had I been told
That worried the Founders in repose;
Yet did I never see it so clear
Till I heard Fitzgerald speak out loud and bold:
Then I felt like some Justice on High
When a pure Truth comes into his view:
Or like Honest Abe when with wise eyes
He saved the Union - and all his men
Look'd at each other with great relief -
Silent, upon a stillness at Appomattox.

on another test I merely am a Nerd Wannabe ... so Mags, how many computer have you built?

Mags said...

GI: Cheney is the Devil Incarnate. Bush is a boob. Fitzy is Frodo.*** By the way, nice poem. Did you write that?

Blogenfreude: How many computers have I built? Zero. How many computers have I mangled? Two. I may be a nerd about some things, but when it comes to computers, I'm a total dork.
