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.

Pokémon rules!
First post! W00t!

I'm a self-confessed Pokémon nerd. I have every single RPG ever released, the majority of spin-off games (I still need MD2, Channel, Dash & Link) and on the latest RPG (Pokémon Pearl version) well...

I have every single Pokémon (all 493 of them) arranged in a storage system of 18 PC boxes (if you've played Pokémon, you'll understand) including all 28 Unowns. I have every Deoxys, Gastroden and Burmy/Wormadam form. My monsters are overall mostly imported from the 3rd gen games.

What's more, every fully-evolved or unevolvable Pokémon is level 100, and has the 'perfect' moveset - according to hours and hours of research and painful conversations on Nintendo forums. Every pre-evolution is level 5 and bred from my lv100s, and every mid-evolution is at the level of evolution and also has the best moveset possible.

I like to go on wifi and rub my amazing Pokémon skills in other people's faces by saying things like 'i pwn u, n00b', and 'i win! i win! in ur face'.

I also like to sell my particularly rare Pokémon to more unexperienced players over the internet. You can fetch a lot of money for a shiny Shaymin you blagged off some guy who was giving them out for free on his forum just the other week.

The shame!

OH and I collect Pokémon game guides, have many collectable cards and figurines, and I have written much fanfiction in my time. And draw much Pokémon porn. Yes, it is true.

Are you over 12?
If not then this isn't really that bad.
