Random Acts of Blogging

Ok, every once in a while we need to break from form and play. I came across the following ‘test’ courtesy of a Graham Wegner post linked to D’Arcy Norman. Like D’Arcy, I too scored a “Sheridan.” So much for my dreams of becoming a wizened Jedi master 😦

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

In other link action there is a test to identify: What pre-1985 video game character are you? My results were so lame that they do not deserve to be posted here.

And then there is this from OkCupid that one of my HelpDesk staff pointed me towards. As you can see I am a geek and I mean that in the most affectionate, loving, caring way. Actually according to my test I am classified as a modern cool nerd. That being said I could use some good social consciousness blogs to round out my experience. No rabid Republicans or Democrats need apply!

Modern, Cool Nerd56 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 34% 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)! Congratulations!
This test tracked 3 variables. How the score compared to the other people’s:

Higher than 48% on nerdiness
Higher than 90% on geekosity
Higher than 55% on dork points

To top this all of Graham linked to a site that allows you to create your own likeness as a South Park character. Mine is still under construction as my rural dial-up is not exactly happy with me at the moment. But I’ll post it here once it’s complete.

Now get out and play!
