[ In-depth ]

Convince us of your nerdly heritage:
Lets see, I remember playing star wars with other kids when I was young. I also didn’t get along with other kids well so I remember learning chess from a teacher in fourth grade and eventually betting him. I’ve been playing video games since before I could pronounce “Nintendo.” I’ve also always been a long buff/critic for certain music and movies to a point that I’m sure many people would consider nerdly. I’m currently a full time student for computer and electronics engineering.

If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
I’d wish to have all the parts for all the things I’d ever want to build.

What nerdly activities do you partake in?
Spending my time now by usually studying, web surfing, gaming [role/frag], sitting in a diner discussing something or reading something somewhere. I’m trying to make a robot from junk tech parts. I’m currently adding another mod to my Xbox. I'm also talking with someone about starting to tutor kids after school.

A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go?
Mmmmm, maybe. I dig the original series, but I wouldn’t call myself a trekkie or trekker for that matter. Either way, I’d enjoy it, but not as much as say a comic convention.

Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=?
9, for very large values of 4

You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something,What is it, and how do you reply?
He whispers in my ear that he’s giving me the direction I need to be pointed in as he hands me a broken compass.

At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why?
Oh geez, this is actually a really hard question for me. I would think a Master Chief costume would be awesome just for looks. But as far as what character goes I’d want to go with Sephiroth from FF7 because he’s such a bastardly villain.

Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest:
After frustration with people and earning the engineering degree I’ve been working on, I begin building person robot assistants. The kind sci-fi writers have had wet dreams over. With money made from my awesome robots, I commence the construction of a robot factory which creates the hardware and software for my robotic armies. They start marching over the world in all directions with a “join or die” mantra. My coming to supreme power would be shortly followed by my abdication.
