Someone asked me to measure and rate a geek but the numbers were meaningless. How do I quantify the Geek / Nerd ratings on a scale that is strictly speculation and basically pretend. If you feel that you have reached GEEK level 20 does that make me level Awesome? To me the answer is YES. Contrary to what you believe your public self image can quickly send you to GEEK level “Creepy”. Sweatpants outside of the house with an ALF, pit stained t-shirt can quickly rip you of any respectable GEEK title and forever tag you as “Creepy”. Spending your evenings at the local comic book store does not make you the Dungeon Master, or close to cool.
It should also be known that dressing up as your favorite character is a fine line of Awesome and social outcast. If you do not know whether or not you fall into the outcast category don’t worry. We know! Actually it’s fairly clear to everyone around you. I recommend you pause World of Warcraft and come up from the basement and ask your mother. Enough said.
These levels are based on knowledge of many (but not all) things GEEK. Social health. And ability to not live at home (over the age of 25).
