Post How much of a nerd are you?
Pretty much what the title says to be fair. I'm a huge nerd, love me some comic books, have comic book and video game tattoos on my way to a sleeve and I'm beginning a PhD in Theoretical Physics soon solely because I think its interesting. I could go on, but I don't want to waste anyone's time reading this unless they're even half as nerdy as myself ;)

i was part taught and part self learnt basic programming language when i was 11
been playing with photoshop for the last 10 years
recently went to look at the planes at manny airport to finally get a glimpse of the a380 (and disguised it as a trip for the little un)

know the old generation of protons like the back of my hand :lol: but mechanical stuff still baffles and scares me

It will all be in the new gen too man, think about your investment!!

It may be the 4th dimension, but its a theory I'm working on... Can travel through space and time be achieved within twenty years of NASAs attempts at hyper drive becoming a reality??

I love me the retro consoles!! I actually present a radio show for video games and their enthusiasts ;

Next gen consoles may be backward compatible but, there has been no official comment on it from either Microsoft or Sony.


NASA can't fake it this time (I refuse to get into conversations about the moon landing) as there is a reality show coming out in a few years based on Mars (yep, I've applied to be on it) and they plan to use that or the new Lunar Base they will be 3D printing as a point to launch with Hyper Drive into another galaxy and with my theories (once qualified and working for a private space agency) possibly a new universe!!!

Holy crap man, you have basically got the contents of The Computer Museum in Swindon... That's the curator's personal collection. Have a word with him if you sell any of it... The man knows his computer and gaming stuff inside out and will give a fair price I'm sure!!

How can you bring my beloved Lockheed into this?? The best aircraft ever built is the SR-71. So far ahead of its time it that it literally spawned like 20 aircraft based on it and the principles involved in building it... The Stealth Fighter / Bomber come to mind as examples
