Wow, there are a lot of omniscient people in the world then!  I read  
all the books but I didn't stand in line to see any of the movies  
(Payson theater is nice that way.  haha)

I scored 46 on this test[1] which means I'm lightly nerdy.  I'd say a  
score in the 50's is roughly the line at which you can distinguish  
nerds from geeks.  ;)
