Okay, so it's not got flying baloney that I know everyone else here can do on a quiz (yeah, well, I'm still learning HTML), but I caught wind of this at the Photo Rating Site I frequent, and here it is...

Inner Geek Quiz

I'm sure you've taken it before, but how did you do, and were you really really really really really (enough really's yet?) mad your score was lower than you wanted it?

yeah... me too.

Well, I'm quite satisfied with my "major geek" rating. I find it a nice balance between living a "normal" life and enjoying (living?) the science behind it.

35.7002% - Major Geek

Yeah! Wish it were higher, but at least it isn't Dysfunctional Geek. [Razz]

Edit: Actually I took it again and got over 50% - Super Geek. Not too bad. [Wink]

And Jess, I guess we know how you found us don't we?

That's the only thing I don't like about the term "Techno-Talking Babe." On the other hand, I don't have anything better to replace it with. GLG? "Great Looking Geek(ess)?" Doesn't have the same ring to it. [Razz]

I suppose that I don't have the advantage of getting points from employer related questions, martial related questions, and other experiences which I'm likely to get later in life, but hey... pretty cool!

63.31361% - Extreme Geek, and here I thought I was doing bad leaving out so many check marks. I think the test is flawed, some of the things on the test I only did once where as some that have scored lower probably did them several times. Oh well, I just really hate the way the word Extreme has been overused as of late that's all.........Z

Woo Hooo... And there are a few that I think I should have gotten Geek points for leaving unchecked. This thing is too long, and why do girl geeks get 5 extra? hmmmm.... Ah, well... all in good fun. I would love to see U, DM, GreyCat and cf take it.

31.95266% - Total Geek

I got totally whipped on the TV section, cos I don't watch any TV shows regularly (prefer movies when I get the chance). Apart from which many of those shows aren't on free to air here in Oz (and not many people use pay TV).

How on earth do people manage to get scores like 60%? [Eek!]

I think that the star trek ones aren't fair, as i wasn't alive at the time, and we don't get it in oz, AND the video store dosn't have them.....

Still, i rekon i did pretty well. [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

Hi there. I knew I was a geek but didn't realise I was a Major Geek (42.21%).

Not sure whether to be proud [Big Grin] or depressed [Frown] by that.
