Geek Quiz O’Awesome
So you constantly go around saying things like “Make it so!” or “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.” So your skin complexion gives Casper a run for his money and you can easily destroy most puny mortals in any game remotely resembling trivia pursuit. So you’re fluent in three languages, none of them real. So you’re a geek. Or a nerd. Or some hybrid of the two.
But the REAL question is, can you pass this epic quiz?
Bonus points will be awarded for being able to name where the question is from. You can google every thing if you really want, (I can’t set my were-bear on you, since my hunting with were-bears license has been suspended as punishment for their unfortunate uncontrollable rampage after an accidental viewing of Batman and Robin), but it won’t really accomplish much. If you really need the self-esteem boost, though, go for it. Post answers in the comments, or just follow along at home. Good luck and big balls!
