...I'm not sure how I feel about being comparable to Bill Gates.

I just took a "Nerd, Geek, or Dork" online quiz, and came up with the following:

Outcast Genius
65 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 60% 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 all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

A cookie for VaCKo

"For my birthday, I am going to demand a cookie of everyone I encounter all day. I'm also going to keep a record of how many people I ask and how many cookies I actually get." - Valerie Kaplan, in an AIM chat last night

Well, Val, you can add one to your list:

Val and I have been IM buddies for about a year and a half now, swapping stories and pictures and general geek love. She introduced me to such wonderful things as Schlock Mercenary, Katamari Damacy, and most recently, Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity. She is smart and funny and incredibly creative, and I absolutely love talking with her in any context.

Val goes by "VaCKo" or "ShinyHappyGoth" in various online communities. If you happen to run into her today, wish her many happy returns of the day. And give her a cookie, please.
