Highlight Clips

Ok you’re (no longer) gonna need Windows Media Player to view this. Also, if your only on dial-up or ISDN, it probably can’t keep up with it. Also, the quality isn’t that great because I edited it with a program that wouldn’t try to conform all the audio and render all the frames, hence a version that I could put up this morning vs tomorrow I’ll probably replace this version in the near future with one that looks good, but for now…

Well we arrived safely in Panama City Beach last night. The weather driving down was pretty much less than desirable. It was pretty much none stop rain from Chattanooga, TN to Columbus, GA. There would be times it would clear up for a little bit, enough to see yet another car slammed into yet another tree. I think I counted like 6 wrecks. Luckily, we had left from Knoxville around 10:30 AM, so we had plently of time to drive down and still arrive for Friday night’s events.

This year, things are a little bit different. There was only the concert. At the concert, I decided I would give my good ole’ 70-200mm 2.8L IS lens a try. Here is one of the results. I’m pleased with it. I can’t upload them all since I’m using my cellphone to access the Internet. I haven’t done any processing outside of converting it from a RAW image.

Nerd? Geek? or Dork?

Joe Normal
47 % Nerd, 13% Geek, 8% 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 less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don’t have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you–we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren’t much of an outcast.

I’d say there’s a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

Congratulations!

If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback!

Thanks Again! — THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST
