What's your nerdiest feature?

    Is there something about your personality that is a bit nerdy? An obsession that maybe you keep to yourself or a collection you've built up over time? I think everyone is a bit of an anorak about something eg music, football, collecting callcards!

    For me, it's trains. I don't know why but I've always loved them. When I was younger I'd even get a bit excited at the sight of a railway track, never mind actually taking a train (sad.... probably). Had a few hornby sets as well. Now I'm not a train spotter or anything (would be a pretty pointless pursuit in Ireland) but I always take a train if it's an option. I'll take the Trans-Siberian someday hopefully, seven days on a train? Deadly!

    What brings out your inner nerd?

  • I spend about 15 hours at day at my computer, this is divided up pretty equally between work, browsing, and watching television programs online.

    Even for AH thats not even kind of funny.

    The question was "what is your nerdiest feature"..not "tell us a joke and we'll judge you on it".

  • I'd say it's my personality, I used to give grinds to people in my own class during my undergrad, and I used to give grinds to a few people doing their postgrads while I was still an undergrad. Also, I remember random pieces of information and I love environmental economics. Also I've red hair so that might be something.

  • everything about me is nerd.

  • You want to see that? o.O
    You dont? O_o
