    I gave myself a 91. I may have overstated my involvement with some of the items though. I'm guessing I'm closer to a 70.
    Well 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
    Because you look so fine
    And I really wanna make you mine

    128... idk what to say, I'm way nerdier than I thought :/ (My interest in math/science/pseudoscience - ie every kind of science raised the score a bit though)

    Well, I'm happy w/ my life - Let the nerd be free!!

    I am a Nerd hipster, I was nerdy before it was cool, and now suddenly I am the man !

    So prob over 9000

    on topic, I think i am over 100, just from movies alone I get like 40 points. and sci-fi books etc adds another 10-15 points.

    I had pretty impressive 40k table game collection. and warhammer, but that's quite a long time ago. so that's around 10 points.

    reading mange +3, +3 animation, reading quite a lot of comic's, The WD etc, +5, and games prob another 30 points, from console, gameboy pc and MMO and PRG.

    I think I am already at 100 and not done yet. OMg I am nerdy !

    5. Computer Programing = 4, it's alright.
    6. Computer Hacking/Pirating = 1, I would like to learn how to hack, but I haven't, don't really pirate much if at all.
    7. Computer end user. = 8, I love using computers

    LARP (this section is worth times 2)
    1. Renaissance Faire/Society for Creative Anachronism = 1, interested, but not enough to do it
    2. LARP games non-physical = 1 see above
    3. LARP games physical combat = 3, see above, but I also like physical combat more.
    4. Historical reenactment = 3, it's cool, never done it though
    5. Historical reenactment with actual combat = 4, neat to watch.

    Total Score: 149

    Disclaimer: I'm not employed (Still in high school), so 8 was my highest ranking for something.

    Essentially a space opera is a Fantasy story set in a futuristic setting. Star Wars being the most Iconic and literal Space Opera. Star Trek is also a Space Opera but it has actual Hard and Soft Sci-Fi elements in it one reason why Star Trek was so good. an Example can you take the Sci-Fi Story and replace Technology with Magic?

    Example:

    Star Wars...Fantasy Wars
    The Setting is now a high fantasy world, replace space with Oceans, replace Blasters with Black Powder weapons. The Deathstar is now an Island Sized Ship with a cannon capable of destroying an Island in a Single Shot. x-wings and Tie-Fighters are magic powered flying ships. The Deathstar Weakness is the Powder Keg. Robots are golem.

    Star Wars would be very Steampunk if converted completely into Fantasy with out a major rewrite, but last I checked Warcaft is steam punk and Fantasy.

    It is actually very interesting to test the setting change on most Sci-Fi to see if it would work as a Fantasy Story, Most would. However many of my favorite are Soft Sci-Fi and remain Sci-Fi no matter the setting.

    101 - I'm surprised. I didn't think I was that nerdy. Scored 0 in a couple of sections, but racked up some serious points in the games, fiction (many bonus points for having quite a big book collection I guess) and TV/film sections.

    I am not a nerd, I prefer the term geek :P

    I am pop-nerdy apparently... I am not even aware of the term, maybe I am not nerdy enough to understand :P
