So tired...

Getting passed around:

And I bet it's because of the subject of this icon that I scored so high on history...

How is it that this is the last week of January?

You rock the history and scifi much more than I do. In several cases, I found myself thinking I wish I owned...the full set of Bab 5, a lightsaber, etc., but I've never been able to afford them. Wah! I could also put my hands on a map and a copy of the Illiad, but not in 15 seconds. :/

Ah, but you have me on science and math! The only reason I ranked so high on computer is because I have owned a machine with less than 512K of memory... *g*

I only own Bab5 because I found it on eBay (and these days, it's only $20 a season at CostCo; every time it shows back up I'm tempted to get a "real" version). But I do own a lot of Dr. Who now, too, not to mention all the Buffy/Angel seasons, so I figured that qualified, even if I don't own any Star Trek yet (at least, not on DVD).

I'm surprised at your literature stats. Like I said, I'm sure that question came up because of Billy -- not only do I own many books on that subject, I HAVE been just reading them because he's my leading character. And by default I also own a lot of books on General Custer, because that was Dad's one claim to geekdom.

Oh, and though I own books on historical people and periods, I don't know for sure that I own more than one for any of them. Maybe.

I also have a lot of stuff on the French Revolution because I got into that once... and I suppose the Old West in general qualifies. Now, Barb owns just about everything by guys like Stephen Jay Gould and Oliver Saks, AND she's read them...

See, I have (and have read) several books by Oliver Sacks, David Quammen, and John McPhee but those are books on nature and science, not history.

Not so bad, if I do say so myself. (Though I admit I'm a little distressed about how high the "dork" factor is. Maybe it's because I still have an old slide rule laying around --mind you, I never learned how to use it. It was my dad's.)

In high school, a physics teacher forced us to use slide rules, but I've forgotten how they work. They weren't very accurate, as I recall, and besides everyone had scientific calculators by that point. I think the teacher only wanted us to suffer as he had been forced to suffer. ;-P

I'm really not sure how I managed to get so low on the dork factor; of course, they didn't ask many social interactive questions, like "were you a drama geek in high school" and "did you hang out with the band (even though you didn't play)"...
