Don't feel bad. I think I get the towel joke too and I'm just a poser.

My husband just took the test and apparently I'm in a mixed marriage. He got 30%. He also thought of one: if you don't know what some of the geek terms mean so you look up the answers on the internet.

I can see it now. In two days, we'll have "The Geek Test - The MSCL Edition".

19.9211% - Geek

Now I'm a little upset about this. I'm not offended, but sad. They really missed the whole music geek persona. I think the fact that I want to be an opera singer should boost my score up by at least 10%. Or the fact that I know opera composers by name and can pronounce foreign opera titles should give me some credit. I'm more geeky than they think. If anyone comes up w/an MSCL test fill me in. Maybe I'll score better on that.

Yeah, I definitely would've scored high on the muslcal geek quiz as I play multiple instruments, listen to stuff no on else listens to and hate the mainstream, but I only ended up being a 21% geek. I guess this thing focused more on D&D, Star Wars, JRR Tolkien and Final Fantasy, none of which I've ever experienced. I am a computer geek, though, that's for sure; just not a very good one.

EDIT: I guess one of the questions should've been, "I HAVE...edited my message board posts for spelling errors."

You asked for it, now you got it.

http://www.chaostatic.net/misc/mscl/mscg.html

Need help on descriptors and if anyone has some new additions to it PM them to me or post them in this thread.

The page is barebones for now, but I will be cleaning it up and making it look decent throughout the day.

Enjoy :)
