Me? I'm a nerd and I'm proud of it:

Score: 16 points. You're a nerd. You or your subject is a nerd, with tendencies toward the real world, even if it is a world of computers and quantum physics. Talk to a nerd whe when your desktop crashes or you need someone to explain what the big deal is about the Large Hadron Collider.
