Quiz: Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 29, 2008

As I was taking his quiz, I kept thinking to myself…”Have I taken this before?”. I looked it up, and sure enough, here are last year’s results, (78 % Nerd, 73% Geek, and 26% Dork). Here are my results this year:

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test…

Modern, Cool Nerd

83 % Nerd, 70% Geek, 30% 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)!

So, I am getting Nerdier and Dorkier, while losing some Geekiness. I have no life.

Elite Chinese Anti-Terror Cops Use Segways

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 7, 2008

I’m not lying…Danger Room has the story and links. This was too good not to share.

These guys have no idea how silly and inappropriate this looks, at least to my eyes.

My Middle Name Is Sidney

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 30, 2008

Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father.

“Emily Hussein Nordling,” her entry now reads.

With her decision, she joined a growing band of supporters of Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who are expressing solidarity with him by informally adopting his middle name.

The result is a group of unlikely-sounding Husseins: Jewish and Catholic, Hispanic and Asian and Italian-American, from Jaime Hussein Alvarez of Washington, D.C., to Kelly Hussein Crowley of Norman, Okla., to Sarah Beth Hussein Frumkin of Chicago.

Whadda buncha idiots!

Guess that backs up the observation that Republicans vote with their heads, and Dumb-o-crats vote with their hearts.

Democratic Party Bans Southern Fried Foods From Convention

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 29, 2008

As part of the effort to make the August 25-28 convention the greenest ever, the Democrats’ guidelines for food catering include one that strikes at the heart of Southern cuisine: no fried food.

No fried chicken. No fried catfish. No fried green tomatoes. No fried okra. No fried anything.

In promoting healthy eating habits, the Democratic guidelines say every meal should be nutritious and include “at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white.”

“It’s the new patriotism,” says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.

Hat Tip: Jonah Goldberg

You know, I’m betting someone could make a lot of money by smuggling fried chicken into that convention…unless the Dems flip-flop on this issue, too.

2,633,098 Democrats
1,932,529 Republicans
1,245,234 Unafiliateds
0,000,011 Libertarians (I’m laughing so hard, I’m crying, here!)

Maybe I should keep a running tally.

Obamalogo Fun

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 2, 2008

I found a link to a fun website on the local progressive watering hole, and decided to participate.

I uploaded a photo of Karl Marx, and it was approved!!!

By the way, one of the wags over there added my avatar to the Obamalogo.

All’s fair in love and war, and this is lo…war. Lucky for them I have a sense of humor.
