Convince us of your nerdly heritage:
I have been obsessed with science since i was given some wires, a battery and a light bulb to play with at age 9.
Currently in my second year at The University Of Manchester, studying for a Mphys Degree in Physics With Astrophysics (if that
means anything to you, i get the feeling most of you are in the US).
I was born and grew up and still live in the town that gave the world Patrick Stewart (Jean Luc Picard is the best Enterprise Captain)
I Started watching sci-fi at like age 8 (red dwarf and star trek).

If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
I'd love the ability to fly please
What nerdly activities do you partake in?
Wasting entire weeks playing on X-box/Gamecube,
writing random C++ programs to calculate how much my friends spend on beer,
living my life pretty much on this computer,
generally everything i do is considered nerdy.

A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go?
It would depend on how successful i was in creating an elaborate lie to convince my girly or my bro to come with me.

Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=?
The Integral of xdx between zero and 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 offers me the power to alter time, i accept, and then i mess with the past safe in the knowledge that when i get back to the present
know one will know i changed anything.
At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why?
A Dwarf, it'd give me a good reason to grow a beard!
Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest:
Whilst trapped in the fridge freezer and contemplating world conquest,
(i was looking for the ben and jerrys thats right at the bottom and the door shut!), all the nuclear weapons fire and all
life on the planet is wiped out, except me and my ben and jerrys. I find a spoon, safe in the knowledge that as the only
being alive i rule the world by default.

Please, let us endure your nerdly visage.
