Convince us of your nerdly heritage:My great grandfather helped invent the slide rule, which is kind of a nerdy mathmatical device. My great grandmother on my mom's side would wear galoshes all the time, just incase it rained. She would also call her grandkids "little bastards" in Polish. I have also worked long years nerdi-fying myself.
If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for? The power to not feel ANY pain, because I am a big, whiney baby when I get hurt. I would also wish for the power to make delicious desserts with my MIND! ::wiggles fingers::
What nerdly activities do you partake in? Reading and writing (pretty much only fantasy), lots of video games, manga and anime, saying completely random things, making up lame jokes that I happen to find hilaaarious, though I know they are really lame, ummm... RPGs, making up songs, yelling at inanimate objects... though this last one might just be insanity.
A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go? Yes, I would, but there would be a twist, to spice things up! I would get a large posse to dress up as characters from Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and stage an elaborate "attack." When asked why, I will reply- "Klingons? No, no, those are Orcs and/or dementors!! I am helping, not hindering, take these handcuffs off at once!"
Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=? Lima bean. You see, everyone thinks that the answer is 2, or 8. Maybe even 16, but it's really lima bean. ::nods:: It's a little known fact, but it's true, trust me.
You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something. What is it, and how do you reply? It is a giant squeaky hammer, with the power to cause mind control. He would hold it aloft and tell me of it's great power. I would say- "Really? Does it really work? Let me conk you one with it and THEN we'll see, Mr. Fancypants-Cloaked-Being-of-Mystery!" If he told me no, I would do it anyway.
At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why? Hmmm... I might try to pull off a character from one of the Silent Hills, because I love those games probably too much. Or, I would use a character from my girlfriend Chandra's story, because it is good and full of attractive DEMONS and other sexalicious beings. OR- a female version of Irvine Kinneas!
Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest: I would wake up on that fateful morning, knowing this would be the day that the world would become MINE! ::clenches fist, cue intense music:: Donning my snazzy black outfit and cloak, I would traverse the stairs to my secret underground lair and come upon my army of super-intelligent sugar gliders (wearing, depending on the sugar glider's strengths, a magician or ninja outfit.) I would raise my arms and say- "Superior Army of Super Intelligent Sugar Gliders! Today we take Portland!!!!!" They would make their little sugar gliders noises of excitement/pure, unadultered evil, and I would use my psionic power to open all the cages, thus releasing my small furry fiends. They would fly to do my bidding, using their elite Australian-outback animal skillz to unleash a sugar-glider fury. They would quickly cow the masses and make sure all ice-cream facilities were open so that I could eat it whenever I wanted. And while they did their task, I would stand somewhere with a megaphone and laugh evviiilllyyy, because that's what a good conquerer would do.

[ Your thoughts ]
Please provide us with a few of your own thoughts.
If one knows that they are insane, are they truly crazy? Isn't the point to being insane not knowing that you are? Huh... that's a thinker...
I wish I had the power to become a mermaid.
Ah! A cornucopia of LOVE!
Nerdlinger: Duffman.... can't breathe!
