I got 24.45759% - Geek

Probably would have been higher as there are a lot of things on the list that I would do, but haven't ever had the opportunity to, like going to a sci-fi con.

Yeah - me, too.  Although, you could easily make a similar list of differences between Whovians and Whoites.

Really, you could.

And what are you saying "ouch" for?  Last I checked you didn't really like Star Trek - none of that stuff even comes close to being related to applying to you.

Or do you have a secret crush on Dr. Crusher?

C'mon, man.  You can tell me.  I'm your brother.

I'll only laugh a little bit.

31% - Total Geek (even after I went back and took out the ones I exagerated about).  Would have been more but we don't have the damn Sci-fi Channel here in Australia....

I'm pretty happy with that result :-)


Geeks rule.


Does having a long debate with my very geeky brother about the difference between a geek and a nerd make me more of a geek?

Can anyone else give a decent definition of the difference between a geek and a nerd?

I deny the existance of Whoites.   I deny it.

NOPE.  DENIED.

That doesn't mean I can't feel their pain.  I'm not cold and insensitive like you are.

Ya big meanie.

Low blow.  As if anyone one on that cast could hold a candle to Sarah.  Or Leela.  Or Romana (either one).  Or...

Er.

Excuse me.

Doesn't matter.  You wouldn't understand, anyways.  

You and your Captain Janeway wallpaper.

TO me anyone can be a geek in disguise, it's all about your secret little hobbies, talents and lifestyle.  Geeks are the clark kent that can easily blend in with society. A geek is proud to be a geek.

A nerd, however, cannot pass for the average joe but yearns to be just like everyone else (as where the geek finds inner peace at being different)...., and a nerd isn't always the brightest bulb in the socket

Historically, the term geek was very much a strong insult.  It has only recently come to use as a term that people embrace.  Carnivals and such used to have 'geeks' that people paid money to see.  Geeks had physical deformities as well as behavioral 'issues.'  They were the ones who bit the heads off chickens and the like.

Not sure, but I don't think nerd has ever been used to imply 'something is wrong' like geek was.  I always thought nerd was more of a social descriptor...like if one not 'cool' (very subjective), one is a 'nerd.'

Haven't studied it though..just my perceptions.

Sarah was always my favorite, followed by Nyssa. Jo was kind of cute also.

What the hell are you talking about?  I've never had Janeway wall paper.

I'm much more likely to have T'pal wall paper.

Or Nyssa.  Or Romana (either one).

But, as you well know, I'm MUCH more likely to have Anime wallpaper.  Like the current desktop consisting of the girls from Love Hina.

:-P

Leela and Romana (both) are tied for the position of My Favorite Companion, but I found Sara the easiest to look at.  That's Sara Jane Smith, not Sarah Kingdom.  

Going back a ways, Zoe was easy on the eyes, too.

Am I actually having this discussion?  Yes.  Yes I am.

I am a Geek, and I am proud.

Me thinkith he doth protest too much.

Sure there's Love Hina there.  Now.  But before...

Sadness.

Not that I'm that much better.  I had Daleks as my wallpaper for a time.

How sad is that?

A geek, maybe, but not a true Doctor Who fan.  It's SARAH Jane Smith.  Sarah with an H.

What makes this especially gigglesome is that Kingdom's name is spelt Sara.  You got 'em reversed!

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

(I'm probably sad for knowing that.  Or for caring.)
