You are allowed to vote up to five times in case you're not just one.

For me, I would say Gansta-nerd, computer geek, and Forum homie.

I love Rap. My favorite songs are Hit Em Up (2pac) and Kingston (Sean Kingston).\

I'm on the computer WAY too much.

I'm on forums WAY too much.

Well I won't presume to know all of them Tongue but at the very least there's a bunch more kinds of music and theatre nerds, and Star Wars nerds, and people who know a lot of science and/or mathematics (I don't know their nerd adjective phrase)

Well theres the "smarty pants nerd",  also known as the know-it-all but usally a bit nicer Smiley which I think I am. I suppose that could be counted as someone who knows alot of science and mathematics.

I suppose there could be the sci-fi nerds, which would cover the Star Wars nerds. Woo for sci-fi!

Well I'm not really a computer nerd...but I am typing this on top of a stack of 3 laptops, hehe.

Of course it isn't quite an exact science but nerdom is a state of being in which only some hunams can metamorphose into. It consists of us people who may be way too good at something, those of us who can eat a packet of chips in thirty seconds and those of us who decide to shun the norm and be our own little weird self. Tongue

I'm a nerd and I'm loving it!!

(I'm sorry if I just exploded anyones lame-o-meter)

(oh no! did i really just post that)

So here are the stats!

All but one of the voters are computer geeks

Many voters are bookworms (2nd most)

Only half of the voters are forum homies

Someone here is Goth. But no Emo dudes.

I'm surprised by the number of bodybuilders/sporty nerds.

I don't know. I also don't see the option to allow changes if I hit "Edit Poll".

Out of interest, why are you taking Japanese? I had a friend at Uni who took a few courses, and told me that everyone there was either studying the language to go abroad, or to be able to read Manga and whatnot. I have to admit that I find that a bit odd. I mean learning a language is always a good thing, but how is it that Japanese is so popular compared to other exotic cultures/difficult languages out there? At least around my Uni, you never saw people obsessing over the Korean language, only the Japanese.

Think about this for a second.

Japan has always been the primary electronics and videogames country. Most notably, Nintendo and Sony are the main video game competitors. (Microsoft is in there, but nowhere near as successful as Nintendo.)

Japan is also in control of the auto industry, much to the dismay of many of us here in America.

Therefore, Japanese is a very useful language to learn, second only to Chinese (which is WAY to difficult). This is why I take Japanese.

For your other question, I would have to say that Japan's different, isolated historical culture fascinates some people, while others simply love anime and/or manga (If you've never seen anime, i.e. Dragonball Z, then you should. They're really good).


BTW, I just reset all the votes since a lot has been added and you can't change your vote

Toyota may be the largest manufacturer, but that doesn't put Japan in control of the industry.

Sales-wise, non-Japanese corporations (GM, Ford, Euro makers, Hyundai, ...) have the majority of the global market.

Quality-wise, German makers usually have the best stuff. No Japanese sports car is as good as the Porsche 911. No Japanese luxury car is as good as the Mercedes S or BMW 7. Toyota's and Honda's semi-automatic transmission is pathetic, while VW/Audi pioneered the awesome twin-clutch gearbox. Many Euro diesel cars are more fuel-efficient than the Prius. And so on and so forth.

(I guess I'm a cars-nerd then?)
