Well, looks like I win (or lose) thus far...I was as truthful as I could be.
You answered "yes" to 46 of 100 questions, making you 54.0% nerd pure (46.0% nerd corrupt); that is, you are 54.0% pure in the nerd domain (you have 46.0% nerd in you).
Your Weirdness Factor (AKA Uniqueness Factor) is 38%, based on a comparison of your test results with 378675 other submissions for this test.
I'm a chemist; what else would you expect.
The programming, the Rubik's cube owning, solving, and solving without the book, and the IQ more than the weight kind of killed me...

Edit - Went ahead and did the 500 question one...pretty similar results.
Here is the result of your 500 Point Nerdity Purity Test.

According to the scoring guide, your nerd experience level is: You refuse to live anywhere without pizza delivery

The closeness of results in itself is an interesting question of statistics...more nerd stuff.
