One of my big complaints with the Nerd-Test (besides the lack of 90% confidence limits) was that it didn't properly break down "types" of nerdiness. A guy who knows how to code in MATLAB isn't necessarily the same kind of nerd who dresses up like a Sith-Lord to stand in line for 3 days for Episode 3 tickets. And someone who has a goofy laugh is not necessarily the same guy who can build a computer from scratch. See how confusing this gets? It's just really important that people are put in the RIGHT compartments, so they can be appropriately judged (are you judging me? you're judging me aren't you! don't judge ME!) and ridiculed.

Enter: Nerd Test 2.0! says I'm a Cool Nerd King.  What are you?  Click here!

Bring it on!

Wow! After I took the 'Nerd Test' for myself, and realized that I'm not a mathematical nerd, I had the same thought! There are many different types of nerds out there. I mean, look at those people who enter 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contests. Yeah, they're entering to win. To take down any and all before them, no matter the age or social stature. They're nerds too, and they should be given the chance to embrace their nerdiness with the rest of us nerds out there!

After I took the nerd test, I got the uber cool nerd king because I didn't score as well as you did on computers or geekiness. Yeah me.
