Uber Cool Nerd King says I'm an Uber Cool Nerd King.  What are you?  Click here!

I'd've scored higher on SF/comic if they'd included TV and movie questions that went beyond Star Trek/Wars, Dr. Who and Battlestar Galactica. (e.g. Red Dwarf, Firefly, Lexx, etc. I'm a postmodern SF fan.)


  1. I'm only "kinda nerdy." The test seems awfully biased to computers and Star Trek.

  2. Cool Nerd King.

    Science/Math: 78%
    Technology/Computer: 85%
    History/Literature: 94%
    I guess you just have to like the above subjects, but not necessarily be any good at them. And in which categories do the light sabre questions carry weight?

    Dumb/Dork/Awkward: 28%

  3. Apparently, I'm a cool non-nerd. I think that is irrefutable evidence of a flaw in the test.

  4. It's fun, but no, it's not that good a test.

  5. I think we can all agree that there is some pedegree nerdery in here :)


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
