From an early age, I watched episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation on television. As the years passed, I added many more shows to my repertoire. Any school project was an opportunity to relate it to science fiction; From Doctor Who tea trays to the crew of the Enterprise going back in time to sit through the tale of Sodom and Gomorrah, there was nothing I wouldn't try. I wrote many comic strips, mainly based on Dr Who, the X Files and the Power Rangers (Though never in the same strip!), and went as far as writing some rather dreadful poetry worthy of a Vogon.
As I speak, my room is cluttered with books, magazines, DVDs etc, I'm studying towards a degree in Mathematics, and have just finished playing the geek in the Drama Society production of 'Grease'. I'm Chair of Student Council, I write plays with many geeky references (Including a monologue about Thunderbirds), my blog is named after the man who brought to life Principal Richard Belding on 'Saved by the Bell', and I'm applying to join a self-proclaimed community of nerds! I'm not really sure what else I need to say...
Though if you're going to push me, I'll throw in that when I moved schools in 1997 there was a girl I liked... She and her friends found this out and decided to mock me, though I didn't realise this at the time. One of the things she asked me to do was write her a love poem. Unable to write anything that sounded any good, I flipped open my copy of 'The Making of Star Trek' and jotted down Gene Roddenberry's unused lyrics for the original Star Trek theme tune, being sure to replace the words "star trek" with "voyage". It was completely seamless, until I made the mistake of confiding in one of my new "friends". By PE that afternoon everyone knew about it... Not my proudest moment.
A TARDIS. Plain and simple.
Student Council, writing plays, my degree... I used to be a member of the University Sci-Fi Society, but they were just showing things that I already owned on DVD...
Yeah... If I have the money, of course.
That depends. If you're dealing with the real numbers, then the answer is 8. If you're dealing with a quotient ring of the form Z/nZ, where 4 is signifying 4+nZ, then provided that n<9 the answer could range anywhere between 0 and 7.
Sorry, I couldn't think of an interesting answer... ;)
It's an Orb of Truth, which allows me to see inside people's heads and find the truth within. I accept at first, but then return it to him minutes later after realising that some things were never meant to be known.
Dizzy the Egg... A much-neglected character from videogaming lore.
After becoming a famous scriptwriter, I would make my way through the ranks of the BBC until I was the Director General, and then proceed to shape people's minds and opinions via carefully selected programming choices and subliminal messaging, until I was lord of all. My plan would be thwarted, however, by my decision to take on an evil Queen of the World, who turns out to be even more evil than me and kills me in my sleep. Ah well, c'est la vie.
