This is a question How nerdy are you?

This week Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, died. A whole generation of pasty dice-obsessed nerds owes him big time. Me included.

So, in his honour, how nerdy were you? Are you still sunlight-averse? What are the sad little things you do that nobody else understands?

As an example, a B3ta regular who shall remain nameless told us, "I spent an entire school summer holiday getting my BBC Model B computer to produce filthy stories from an extensive database of names, nouns, adjectives, stock phrases and deviant sexual practices. It revolutionised the porn magazine dirty letter writing industry for ever.

Revel in your own nerdiness.

I feel remarkably un-nerdy
After reading a few of these I actually feel *less* nerdy than usual. This is impressive as I'm a theoretical physics PhD student who collects warhammer 40K.

Oh, and to echo crackhouseceilidhband, these things are made slightly worse by being female. (I have glasses *and* currently braces though, so I think I win a bit)

Somehow I expect this QOTW is going to be an exercise in one-upmanship as we each try to out-nerd the other. That in itself is pretty nerdy. How ironic.

oh dear lord no!
warhammer! Nooo! My rally team mate is a warhammer fan. I'm possibly not nerdy enough as I just don't get it...

(I traded my glasses for contact lenses, although from the age of 11-24 I had glasses, and from the age of 12-14 I had braces, and pretty much from birth I had asthma so I reckon I qualify as one, if not all, of the Goonies.)

Nerd girls are cool. Geek chic rocks.

I don;t know about anyone else
But I've always found glasses on a girl quite horny, does that make me a nerd? or a Nerd lover?

I only took up the warhammer because my boyfriend's into it and I live in Nottingham (home of Warhammer World).

Can't do contacts due to stupid eyes (only need 1 contact and having 1 dry eye and 1 fine eye is *really* odd!)


I look damn hot in my glasses. (but seriously, I think I look better with than without)

That could be true, but all the girls I;ve met who wear glasses then move to contacts never look as good as wehn they did in glasses, perhaps it's just me?
