Well, gee-whiz willikers, I only scored 31.36095% on the Geek Test, making me only a Total Geek with leanings toward Major Geek (although I think everyone I went to high school with (back in the Dark Ages) might disagree and place me higher on the Geek continuum). I guess I should work on devolving my social skills and practice snorting when I laugh more...

28% are more nerdy than me
72% are less nerdy than me

That puts me mid-level.

I am also a Starfleet Captain (according to the test). Never wanted to be an Admiral, they're all corrupt.

20 years ago to be a geek was to be an outcast.  A social misfit, a smart person with no social life or skills who sat at home working on a computer back in the day when nobody had personal computers beyond a commadore 64...because the question was "What do I need with a computer?"  My brother was one such geek who before we even really understood computers had them, he also had some black phone or box he used to dialup to BBS. (Bullitin boards) We didn't really understand it at the time. I don't think I really got online until maybe 1990.

Since Bill Gates has introducted the computer to every house in america, people are more technologically inclined.    I still remember using floppies on an IBM. Now the term Geek is deemed "Cool"


We've come a long way baby.....

Dean - what's sad is at my work our IT guy took a job elsewhere in the company and he kept trying to get me to apply for his current position. I don't work in IT.

what's worse is in my job I also work with ITG in helping test our software programs to find glitches and other feed issues. Mind you this is not in my job description. This is something that eventually and gradually fell in my lap over time, nobody else in my position deals with this stuff.   Just me.

I swear i could get a job working at a McDonalds drive-through just to "get away from it all" and somehow within a years time part of my job will be working out kinks in the computer system used to order the stupid food. And I'm not any kind of computer guru either. I can't get away from it!!!!  Then again, not many people can say they worked as a SYSOP and did maintenance work on forums on CompuServe early 90's.......

Maybe that just says it all

I rated 35.89744% on Susan's test. It's because I read all of the author's mentioned, watch a ton a television, and know a ton of physics. Plus I truly enjoy trivial pursuit. I don't know computer stuff, and I don't game so that hurt me, furthermore I have been playing sports since I was 4 (being 20 now) so I don't shun sports. In fact I just got through teaching two weeks of hockey camp in South and North Carolina and boy are my arms tired. No seriously, swinging a 65 mph slapshot will take its toll over a few weeks. And to yin and yang my geekiness a little more, I have a girl friend....... but she calls me a nerd. Go figure.

Did you know that McDonalds is hiring people to take drive thru orders from call centers?

And it isn't your local Mickey D's either.
Some people who do this can literally be hundreds of miles away at a call center in another state.
(I saw all this on Dateline or some similar show)

Here is the link to read more

What's the point, you typically get dinner in less than 3 minutes.  Does that mean they'll end up outsourcing those call center jobs to India?

God help us all then when we try to order a big'n'tasty


I can't wait till they invent teleportation. That is going to change my life when getting food delivered.

Teleportation will change my life in many ways...I'm still waiting for that too! C'mon inventors! I was promised this years ago when I was a child, let's get a move on.

I saw something about ordering McDonalds like that...do we really need that? Is that a major issue that needs to be addressed? Seriously...
