[ In-depth ]
Convince us of your nerdly heritage:
I've been on the computer since I was 10 years old, I've been playing video games since I was 8 years old, I've loved Star Trek: Voyager my whole life, I'm never reading less than 3 books at a time, I've loved The X-Files my whole life, I've been obsessed with vampires since I was 12 years old. Vampires are truly my nerd heritage. They are my obsession, and I believe they do/did exist.

If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
To at least meet a vampire.

What nerdly activities do you partake in?
Drama club, I'm online at least 6 hours a day, I play video games at least 3 hours day.

A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go?
I've never been to one, so I don't know what they're like. Maybe. I'd be Janeway. :)

Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=?
4+4= The number of times I've beat any given video game.

You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something,What is it, and how do you reply?
The cloaked stanger is a human servant of a very powerful vampire. He offers me the chance to meet 3 of the most ancient vampires. I kiss him and let him bring me to thier lair.

At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why?
Hmm.. I really like Rinoa and Paine... Probably Paine.

Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest:
I creeped out into the hallway, sword in hand. My left arm was sliced up and bleeding way too much for me to not pass out before the sun came up tonight. I walked down the hall to the darkened room. I stepped into the room and something long and sharp barely missed my head right before it stuck into the wall. I ducked and rolled so my back was to the opposite wall. I stayed down, and when I saw movement, I jumped and slashed my sword at the creature. I sliced its left arm off at the elbow and it went down screaming, writhing on the floor. I put my sword in the sheath at my back and stalked across the room. I pulled the spear out of the wall and walked back to the screaming creature. I stomped my right foot on its stomach and shoved the spear through its chest into the floor beneath it. It screamed and stopped moving. I pulled my sword from my back and brought it down across its neck as fast and hard as I could. Its head flew off and hit the wall, leaving a mark in blood. The mark was its power symbol. I sheathed my sword and walked to the mark. I pressed my hand against the mark and felt its power run thought my body, through my veins. No wind, no visual magic. But I knew that I now controlled all the vampires and the world. And I was the most wanted vampire to ever have been made.

Please, let us endure your nerdly visage.
Sorry, don't have any.

[ Your thoughts ]
Please provide us with a few of your own thoughts.
I have so many views on so many things. But I'll stick to the topic at hand: Nerdism. To me, you can be a nerd if you know everything to know about computers, and if you've beaten every video game there is to beat, and if you have enough money to own every single new technoloy item that will ever be made. But if you think about it, isn't that all just generally your own obsession? Obsessed with computers, obsessed with games, obsessed with technology. Yeah, those are the stereotypical obsessions nerds have, and I'm obsessed with two of those. But if you think about it, any overwhelming obsession could be nerdism. For me, vampires. I think everyone I know knows I like them, but no one knows how much I do, to the point of, well, obsession. I think a nerdist obsession is one where you're extremely smart on the subject you're obsessed with, and where everyone who knows of your obsession thinks you're either insane or a genius.
