[ In-depth ]

Convince us of your nerdly heritage:

My nerdiness is inherited. My dad is in Mensa and spent his years on college knocking out Drosophila and blowing them under his suitemate's doors. My mother forced me into being a fan of Star Trek Next Generation and Highlander. They got engaged during the Muppet Show. That kind of quality was clearly passed down since I can quote every line from the movie Dune and exactly why its different from the book as well as sing all of the Tom Lehrer "the Elements" song by memory. Plus, my favourite jokes are all chemistry related.

If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
With only one wish, I would wish to find lost things. Its useful for when I need it, but low-key enough to keep any mortal enemies off my back.

What nerdly activities do you partake in? Rocky Horror Picture Show, used to have marathons for watching star trek, anime, and/or porn. Though that last one was for a communications class a friend of mine took.

Oh yes, I'm also in Alpha Chi Sigma. The Professional Chemistry Fraternity.

A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go?
Are Tribbles cute? YES

Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=?
that depends on what it is four of now doesn't it? if it is apples, certainly 8 apples. But certain cells? I don't think so. You get one giant gooey blob.

You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something,What is it, and how do you reply?
Knowing my luck, hashish. Avert your eyes and walk away. Its either the crack dealer or someone out to trick ya. No good.

At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why?
Alas, I know not. The Warcraft characters are not that hot.

Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest:
I think the key now for realistic world conquest would be to become president. I think I could pull the whole woman card for awhile on that one. Once your president, rename yourself "El Presidente" just so that the rest of the world thinks your crazy and underestimates you. Then go to Canada. It is subtle that way. Just never try to hold Asia. That is one thing I learned from Risk.

I'm sorry its fuzzy. But...WIZARDS!

[ Your thoughts ]
This was indeed a productive and time consuming venture. I should be studying for a physics test tomorrow but this community is much more interesting than any magnetic field could be.
