You will just have to put them in the right order;-)

Hmm. I suppose that answer could be applied to many, many mathematical problems.

Good one.

 Sounds like a game show, that's not going to hold my attention ,  ... at least it dose not come from the UK there infotainment  is real bad .

I don’t know why you are so upset over this. There are not many here at LMR that I would consider calling a nerd, and compared to many of the other shows coming from USA I would rather have this then;

  • A useless karaoke contest like American idol
  • Shows about anorectic girls trying to become top models
  • Watching fat people in pain for money or glory (not for the health issue)
  • Showing off young girls in heavy markup as a Beauty pageant,  just to relive the dreams of their parents (read mother)

Give me a geek / nerd any day to show off their knowledge and interest.

i'm not upset at all, i find the whole thing to be hilarious because these
people are so completely not understanding what a 'nerd' is :P

a true show centered around the stereotype nerd might be a cool thing.
but this show is doomed to fail for the same reasons that make the shows you mention
the vile garbage they are + the fact that these producers are entirely without anything resembling, or
capable of emulating, 'a clue'.

for the record: i am one quarter nerd on my mothers side.

 

Well at least they aren't doing the real world with nerds... yet

All these sort of shows are stupid if you can understand what they are saying. That's why I prefer their Chinese imitations :-D

I personally like, "Can you list all the digits of PI?"

Answer: No. Neither can anyone else.

No, but I have Euler's number, e, down :P

actually, it depends on how many slices you cut it in :P
