This one’s really got legs – all my US e-mates who don’t even usually do memes are doing this one. Behold, I am a
Modern, Cool Nerd
82% Nerd, 65% Geek, 26% 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 and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.
Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

I want extra nerd points for reformatting the code-block I copied from OK Cupid so that it looked better on the blog, especially for resizing the alarmingly large modern-cool-nerd-winning-a-motza image. I also removed an extraneous space between the numerals and the percent sign on the Nerditude score, which the Geek in me couldn’t help noticing, and the Dork simply couldn’t let lay.
UPDATE: OK, I now need superplus bonus Geek points for knowing how to fix the blog when the “more” tag interacted with the table formatting disastrously and affected every other post on the front page. Because I still really really like only having a para or two on the front page to aid the skimmers.
