I thought the exact same thing. Just because I'm not a science/math/tech nerd it tells me I'm not nerdy at all. Really? Because I've got some pretty nerdy stuff going on here. It's just history/lit nerd stuff. Seriously, having four versions of The Complete Works of Shakespeare--that's not very hip.


Exactly, me too. Also, I can name every Russian tsar, and give the dates of reign for most of them. Please don't try to tell me that's not as nerdy as being able to recite the periodic table.

Preach it sister. IMO, knowing the name of Leon Trotsky's first wife (Aleksandra Sokolovskaia in case anyone's interested) should earn as much credit as knowing the periodic table symbol for magnesium.

This disappoints me! I thought I'd be nerdier. :(

Your nerdiness is:

Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds

The question was about manganese, no?

I've met a couple of Trotsky's descendants. One is a thoracic surgeon and one is a complete jerk (not that the two are mutually exclusive necessarily).

Me too.


Me too - and I always thought I was nerdy. I guess band geek doesn't equate nerdy for this quiz. :lol:

Maybe if all us not nerdy but not hip people got together, we could improvie our friends score or our plans for Friday night score and move into "hip" :cheer:

But then, "hip" is probably too much work for me anyway. :slinkaway

:lol: You and I both.And ME! Yay! I wanted to be a Supreme Nerd, and I was worried about my disinterest in graphing calculators, but my skill in identifying photos of dead scientists was enough to let me pass the test.


Exactly, me too. Also, I can name every Russian tsar, and give the dates of reign for most of them. Please don't try to tell me that's not as nerdy as being able to recite the periodic table.I think you have to know science to be a nerd. Your skill is a lovely dorky skill though.

Not nerdy, but then again maybe not all that cool either.


Sigh.
