There is nothing more nerdy than refering to oneself in the 3rd person - FACT

What makes a 'good' nerd?

JM^3
25-08-2006, 10:56:27
This is goodest nerd, it is biggest nerd.

I still weigh over 180 lbs..

JM

That's under 13 stone, how tall are you?

Nav
25-08-2006, 11:24:54
/me is not a nerd

Funko
25-08-2006, 11:25:47
Huh?

Simple test - who has most posts in the geek forum?

MattHiggs

Fat fuck!

Drekkus

JM didn't look all that fat on that video.

Mr. Bas
25-08-2006, 11:52:33
Can somebody translate how big JM is? I might have a good shot at being bigger.

Tizzy
25-08-2006, 12:00:10
Roughly 180cm and 81.65kg

Funko
25-08-2006, 12:00:55
180cm 81kg

Mr. Bas
25-08-2006, 12:00:59
That's all? I officially stake my claim as CG's biggest nerd with 1.95 m and 85 kg.

Funko
25-08-2006, 12:03:10
185cm 85kg

Mr. Bas
25-08-2006, 12:04:03
I have a feeling Vincent can top that though.

Drekkus
25-08-2006, 12:05:48
So what's the optimum height - weight ratio for a nerd?

fp
25-08-2006, 12:21:24
1:1

Snotty

1.95 metres, 110kg, damn im a big nerd

Venom
25-08-2006, 12:49:34
1.5m 200kg.

Beta1
25-08-2006, 13:15:41
venom is close to collapsing into a black hole by the sound of it.

188cm 92kg (or thereabouts, I've been ill and lost a few kg this month)

Damn, with my 1.777m and 109.999kg I still have a large way to go....

hey, didn't we have a thread about highest BMI?

Mr. Bas
25-08-2006, 13:23:02
You are asymptotically growing to 110 kg then, Mario?

JM^3
25-08-2006, 13:43:50
tallness also helps bigness, so this isn't directly BMI...

Nope. 1kg/cm was more what I had in mind.

Venom
25-08-2006, 14:20:33
I got that easily.

fp
25-08-2006, 14:22:42
You were my model for the ratio.

Japher
25-08-2006, 14:26:04
Venom is a model?!

Venom
25-08-2006, 14:31:40
I'm too sexy for this thread.

Venom
25-08-2006, 14:32:06
Christ, I can't believe I just made a reference to Right Said Fred.

Funko
25-08-2006, 14:32:53
I didn't think you could get any gayer

Venom
25-08-2006, 14:39:07
Why don't you go make some physical contact with Laz again.

Funko
25-08-2006, 14:40:06
AND DESTROY THE KNOWN UNIVERSE?!

Moron.

Venom
25-08-2006, 14:42:07
Being gay would destroy the known universe? Is that in the bible?

Funko
25-08-2006, 14:45:34
I think so, Thou shalt not covet your neighbour's brother.

Hmm, I am not so sure.. of course, some of my books are elsewhere..

I should take some picures.

Holy shit that's the nerdiest thing I've ever seen.

the bookends put SP in his own perverse subcatagory of nerdy

I had a bookcase like that once. Without all the nerd stuff in it though. Different nerd stuff maybe.

Greg W
26-08-2006, 03:56:51
Well, I have:
- About 60 odd roleplaying books
- Over 200 fantasy/sci-fi novels
- About 20 IT books
- Can program in at least 1/2 a dozen languages
- Over 100 computer games
- understood Nav's reference
- have owned more computers than I have had girlfriends :nervous:

Sir Penguin
26-08-2006, 04:38:40
But do you have pink bookends with butterflies on them?

SP

Greg W
26-08-2006, 04:42:08
That says you're a poof, not a nerd.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
26-08-2006, 04:42:40
Nerd.

Koshko
26-08-2006, 05:39:22
I have been very slowly brainchilding my own role playing game. That's got to be extra nerd points.

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
26-08-2006, 08:18:41
Pshaw, naw, everyone does that. Now, using the word "brainchilding" in a sentence, now THAT'S nerdworthy.

C.G.B. Spender
26-08-2006, 08:22:20
What about if it's a radio controlled role playing game ?

Greg W
26-08-2006, 08:59:18
Only if you build the parts yourself from radio shack.

Sir Penguin
26-08-2006, 16:00:40
Radio Shack sucks now. You'd know that if you were a nerd.

SP

JM^3
26-08-2006, 19:12:04
Yeah, it has for well over a decade now.

It was cool in the 80s.

Dick Smith is way superior. Or was, 8 years ago...

Koshko
26-08-2006, 21:57:47
Radio Shack is literally the only place within a bijillion miles of here were you can buy half the stuff they sell.

Oerdin
27-08-2006, 02:36:53
Wow, there is a lot of competition for the biggest nerd award. It must be a highly desirable title.

i wasn't one but i think i turned into one approx 6/12 ago
Can you get nerdiness by association??
I may not be all the way there yet - can anyone tell me the diff between a nerd and a geek- cos i may fall into the latter cat instead :).
/me slaps Nav and Chrisoph about a bit with a two day old smelly sea bass
