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.

Where to start?
Does this count as nerdiness? or am I just an overgrown kid?

I have Transformers from my childhood on display on shelves in my bedroom.

I have all the transformers cartoons on DVD (the ones from 1984 - not the newer ones, Even I have my limits)

I have an official Star wars Tie Fighter pilots helmet which I wear sometimes.

I have a collection of airsoft BB guns and I have an almost autistic level of encyclopedic knowledge when it comes to small arms. When watching films I constantly point out inaccuracies about caliber/ammunition /etc and am pedantic to the point of causing my better half to scream at me. I totally cant help it, or stop myself.

I have perpetrated D&D, and other role playing games including live action roleplay (yes - that involves getting dressed up as a vampire)

I play warhammer 40,000 and other table top battle games. I spend hours painting models to a display level standard and get very excited when new rules/models/armies are released. I almost crack a chubby when I beat my friends at these games.

I'm 33 years old.

Thats it for now (isnt that enough?)

Length? D6 (six sided dice) +2.
