i woulda sworn i was a dork

Pure Nerd
60% Nerd, 43% Geek, 39% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer.

Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

These quizzes are lifesavers, giving me something completely inane to divert my attention, if only temporarily, from the endless supply of depressing news.

This is my apologetic way of confessing that you can expect to see alot of this on my blog (along with anything else I can find to balance the more depressing items) from now on; although I've always been a sucker for them, I'm craving this sort of distraction even more these days.
