Other: Über Cool Nerd Goddess

I figured since I was apparently missing certain key aspects on the geek test, and there is no way in hell that I am going to start dressing up like a hobbit just to raise my score, I'd find a nerd test.

I assume, though, that it is judged not on an absolute scale, like the geek test is, but relative to other people who have taken the nerd test. Therefore, if a disproportionate number of non-nerds have taken the test, like if it's used as some kind of fraternity test to weed out excessively nerdy initiates, that would skew the results. Right?1

However, the results page announced they are working on version 2.0 of the test, so I took that.

I am an Uber Cool Nerd God2. Run! Run!

No, I have absolutely no idea how I only get 2% on a scale of dorkiness. I suspect there's a bug in their code. (Yes, I know what "code" means.) Actually, I take issue with a lot of their criteria. The geek test was much more finely-grained.

1Who here is not saying to themselves, "Damn, this woman needed to take a nerd test to figure out she was a nerd?"
2Should be Goddess here, people.

But you SHOULD dress up like a hobbit. It'll give you street cred!

Uh-huh, on which street is that, exactly?
