I got a 10%.  Not sure what I missed :-)

My wife just took the nerd test and scored a 98.  I guess that makes us a good
match!

I figured it out by hitting the back button and modifying the test results.
I goofed the thing about what was the second question, and I also answered
"10" for the number of planets, since it was reported recently that another
was discovered <g>. I also got the dirt-in-the-hole answer wrong (slapping
my forehead). Many of the questions had no effect on the score regardless of
how they were answered.

33% scored higher (more nerdy), and
67% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds.

Gee. I expected it to be somewhat higher. Maybe I should study my periodic chart
a little big and try again. ;)

I got 96%, or a SUPREME NERD GOD status. Methinks that this admirably 
high status is mostly due to my Hewlett-Packard pre-1990 RPN calculator, 
which usually scores extremely high at these nerd quizes.

It also could be that I entered COBOL as "not a real programming 
language" :)

I got: 

Your Score Summary

Overall, you scored as follows:

1% scored higher (more nerdy), and
99% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!!

Finally the programme I wrote at age 15 
to memories the periodical table paid off :-)

I dunno... we'd probably come close, and I'm still in high school; nerdyness 
bragging time in about twenty minutes.
