Here is a Geek test so you can find out: http://www.innergeek.us/geek-test.html . I got 36.something%, which apparently makes me a major geek...

Ahhh the innergeek test!

I remember that! - hang on, will do it and come back to you.



I feel though a lot of people on here will lie just to get better results, or alternatively think they know the answer when in fact they do not.



For example the question do you know

'who first implemented windows on their OS'


Is not perhaps who you think it might be. But some people will think, yeah Microsoft isn't it? Mad


'how to count to 31 on one hand' - no, it's not perhaps like that either. You cannot 'go round in circles'.





40% - Major geek

I feel I have failed somewhat. Now watch Vagilik outgeek me Sad

After taking the test it is safe to say that I don't have to worry about being thought of as a geek.

A higher geek score is easy to acquire, just find a topic that you enjoy and study it more.

Use the questions to help guide you and explore the world around you.

Name 3 temperature scales.

Kelvin
Celsius
Fahrenheit

Now find the boiling point of water in each.


Do you know how to set a telescope in polar alignment?

are you interested in astronomy?
Would you like to be ?

What is polar alignment?

If you find something interesting enough, you'll do your own research purely out of curiosity or fascination.



I dont feel geeky enough as i've never built a water cooled pc, so my next one will ( build thread when I get around to it and if demand is there ).



Yes, I said water cooled pc, I fail to see the problem.
