Maxwell. You would have recognized him if the picture showed holding his silver hammer. I didn't recognize him, so I guessed Planck. I'm sure it cost me at least two nerd points. I've already filed my grievance with the webmaster.

I was never a fan of thrash or hardcore metal. :-) Even in my most nerdiest pre-marriage years, my walls were clinically white and bare with not even so much as a Yes or study hard poster.

Rather amusing test, even if some of the questions ceased being applicable to me about 35 years ago...

I'd subsitute "CS Prof" for "Nerd God" (the two are essentially equivalent) but otherwise, good clean fun.

Likely because you scored very very low on the "dumb / dork / awkward" part, way lower than I did. Congrats on that!!! Maybe the running of races and stuff is raising your social skills scores??? :D

They didn't have enough philosophy or theology questions. Or language questions. Silly quiz! Don't try to tell me I'm a "Slightly Dorky Light-Weight Nerd." Lame! We know better! Although points for trying, I guess... you did mention Aristotle, which is certainly not computers.
