    79% if I answer truthfully and 90% if I go towards the non-truthful answers.

    Also, to be or not to be, that is the question..

    It's intended to be the regex rendition of "To be or not to be". It's not quite right though, written like that it is more "To be or to not-be". A more accurate regex is /(bb|(:!bb).*)/ using ECMAScript regex syntax

    I don't think there is a prize by being geeky. Unless being geeky is the prize, in which case i suppose I'm a high C of a geek on a 10 point scale.

    I got 57% and surprised I got that high. A few of them caught me off-guard that they'd actually ask that. Like I was just introduced to the series Firefly about 6 months ago, haha.

    You lied on some of those questions, esp. for someone who's on these forums helping coders more than anyone else here Just answering the three questions: winning an academic competition, what browser you use or what OS you use, and solving a complex computer problem in the shower should've brought you up to almost 30% by themselves. They did for me at least, haha.

    I've never won an academic competition and I don't think about computer problems in the shower. I don't watch star track. I don't read comic books. I don't read any books for that matter.

    Your an oddity for an aerospace engineer / website coder, haha, and I mean that in the most respectful way I mean, not even a spelling bee or math contest when you were younger?!

    Nope not once. I'm actually a software engineer now, go figure. I didn't like the amount of math in AE.
