Geek Quiz of Awesome

geek quizGeeks are like family. We argue about plot points and television stars, magic versus technology, and whether Syfy is trying to kill us via cancelling our beloved shows. Our books, cosplay, and fandom draw us to large gatherings like Comicon and Dragoncon to find others to add to our circle.

Times are hard and money is tight, so I thought some of you might fit in with me and mine. The following is your geek quiz. You get 1 point for every geek statement you agree with. You get another point for each time you share this quiz with friends using the hashtag #MyGeekScore (so don’t forget to add your points) and since it is my birthday THERE is a PRIZE!

  • Leigh Evans

    I’m appalled to discover I’m not a geek. My score was a wince-worthy 25. Must hand in my wannabe geek badge.

    • June K.Williams

      25 is a very respectable score. Hang on to that badge and wear it with pride

      • Julie Butcher

        June is right Leigh and you are my favorite almost geek 😀

  • Laura Curtis

    Hmm… 44. I guess I am medium-nerd!

    • Julie Butcher

      You are nerd enough for me 😀

  • kevintkeith

    You misspelled “Xander”.

    • June K.Williams

      Indeed ! The penalty of using phonetics. Xander it is and shall always be…unless it is short for Alexander in which case one might use Alex.

      • Julie Butcher

        huh. 😀

  • Liberty Speidel

    27… mostly because I’m selective in my geekiness.

    • Julie Butcher

      I have no choice but huge geekiness since all 6 kids are geeks 😀

  • Rissa Watkins

    I got a 52 Oh and happy birthday!

    • Julie Butcher

      Thanks Rissa! *hugs*

  • Taira

    Damn… Only 45… 🙁
    *hangs her head in shame*

    • Julie Butcher

      Dood 45 is excellent!

  • Blaze

    My Geek score is 80, but many of my No answers are, I believe generational. For example, Lyssa from Krull is the most awesome Princess, and I have a rotary phone… like that!

    • Julie Butcher

      *snort* We have lumpy Space Princess painted on the wall:D

      • Blaze

        Sartorial choices would have me painting Captain Jack Harkness on my Wall, except that my dear husband might object.

        Do I get geek credits for being able to say that I have drawn or painted sci-fi and fantasy characters of my own creation on things?

        • Julie Butcher

          Can you paint Captain Jack on MY wall?!

          • Blaze

            I can, and the color I suggest for him is Buff.

            • Julie Butcher

              Bwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do love you!

              • Blaze


  • Lara N

    68! yay!

    • Julie Butcher

      You did good!

  • Erica L. Gentry

    Damn, only 58. But a lot of those ‘no’s are because I’m not a Supernatural fan, and there was a lot of Supernatural on this quiz :/

    • Julie Butcher

      Well I do lurve me some Supernatural 😀

  • William St Germain

    Well… double checked… easy 90 points… 8)

    • Julie Butcher


  • Noonie

    It’s *Joss* Whedon, not Josh.

    • admin

      Yes, and his last name is *Whedon*, not Wedon. You have earned an additional 5 points!

    • Julie Butcher


  • Fuzzy

    Heah. 87 points. I’ve been doing this stuff for awhile though…

    • Julie Butcher

      Oh GOOD ON YOU!

  • AP Diggs

    I scored a 53, but I’m a 79 wannabe.

    • Julie Butcher


  • Rileysdtr

    Eh – only 63. I must be slipping but I DID play right… though I know the words to every STYX song I also know who they are so that one didn’t count 🙂

    • Julie Butcher

      Well I’ll give you a 64 then 😀

  • Julie Butcher


  • Jamiroquai

    Hmmm… 35. But I have trump- dad is an electrical engineer and he wanted my brother and I to be able to do our own work on …. just about everything, so we have built a laser, an infared motion detector, a microphone to broadcast over the radio, a computer (when I was 8 and my brother 6) and recently dad has finished 6 months of work building the tools necessary to build a plane, on which we begin this summer.

    Also, have you published anything? I have read almost everything your brother has published (not Spiderman yet, or the comics, but I think everything else) and adding another Butcher (of the Fedynich variety) to the list would be fantastic!

    Oh, and good job on picking books for him when he was sick! I saw in the other comments you said you were a geek because your six kids are, but anyone who picks Tolkien and Lewis for fun books for their younger brother has geek cred all on their own.

    • Julie Butcher

      I don’t have any books yet but I have an awesome literary agent so hopefully soon!

  • Kim Smith Morgan

    70-ish… I’m not patient enough for hash marks, and also, I’m sure that Nathan Fillion wouldn’t want to be king. He’d want a democracy, because he is made of awesome with little yummy rainbow sprinkles on top. *sigh*

    What a man. Especially the bare-bootie scene in the desert. You’re welcome. (I deserve extra credit for that one) 😉

    And also, Discworld trivia should necessarily be part of any awesomeness quiz.
