In honor of Embrace Your Geekness Day yesterday, we’ve decided to dedicate today’s blog post to our favorite people: the geeks! As a tech company, we are proud to call ourselves Geeks and we love all kinds of crazy awesome technology, comics, movies and trivia. Do you think you have what it takes to be a hardcore geek like us Lifesizers? Take our quiz below and find out!

Give yourself 1 point for every “YES” answer:

1. Do you think this wedding cake is spectacularly awesome?

who cake

2. Do you have a tattoo to pay tribute to your favorite comic book, TV series or movie?

3. Have you ever dressed up for a comic-con? (Give yourself an extra point if you go every year)

4. Have you ever gotten in a fight with someone over who would win a face-off between two superheroes?

5. Do you have a regularly scheduled game that you never miss?

6. Have you ever played Magic: The Gathering? (Give yourself a bonus point if you put your Magic cards in sleeves)


7. Do you still own an original NES? Sure, SNES counts too.

8. Do you know the Konami code by heart? Are you saying it to yourself right now?

9. Have you ever read the novelization of a video game?

10. Do you still get emotional when you think about the Red Wedding?


11. Can you tell the difference between Helvetica and Arial?

12. Give yourself 1 point for every programming language you “speak”: HTML, CSS, C++, Javascript, BASIC, Python, Ruby? (Bonus point if you have written your own language)

13. Have you ever jailbroken your iPhone?

14. Have you ever been to an observatory? Would you want to go?

15. Have you ever been to a Browncoats meetup?


1 – 5 Points: Go home, n00b. I am surprised you even made it this far in the quiz! You are clearly not even close to being a legit geek. You are really missing out! Do yourself a favor and download some BSG (Battlestar Galactica). Then, we’ll talk.

5 – 10 Points: OK, not bad, not bad. You are a mid-level geek, and there’s something to be said for that. My recommendation is that you go ahead and crossover into full geekdom. There’s a whole world waiting for you, as long as you don’t care about what your cooler friends think.

10 – 15 Points: With great power comes great responsibility, and you possess the power of a super geek. Hats off to you! And I don’t care what you say, Spiderman would win in a fight every time. So would ninjas.

15+ Points: You killed this quiz! Fantastic! (Yes, I said that a la Christopher Eccleston) You are the ultimate in geekiness, and I have to say, I am impressed. Today’s Embrace Your Geekness Day is all about you, so let your geek flag fly! Now, let’s see who can name the most digits of pi…GO!
