Quiz: How Many Quotes Are In The Geekiest Poem Ever?

Updated on June 23, 2014

For Science. A Geek Quote Poem.

One day I decided to sit down and write a poem using only quotes from films, games, memes and books. Because of who I am, and the kind of quotes I love, they are almost entirely geeky.

I don't know if it's a good poem, although I'd like to think it's awesome. It was surprisingly hard to get the words to fit together, like a mismatched puzzle - but it is very geeky, and it is very full of quotes. Some are direct quotes, some are misquotes and some are just references. I'm sure that certain references will be extremely obvious, but others may be a bit trickier. I'm hoping you'll tell me how many you can spot - and suggest your own!

I live my life free of compromise

So I am wary of Google

Because its answers weigh less

Than its operating manual..

I find the world inconceivable

I aim to misbehave for science

And promote people to the level

Of their incompetence

Noah's ark is a problem.

The lies are inside my head

And I'm all out of gum

So bring out your dead

For science.

But Han shot first so the cube could live

Now when I offer cake

It is actually some sort of delicious biscuit

So please don't panic.

The world needs hope right now but

This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face.

Gunpowder treason has been forgot

And fear is the little-death that condemns this place

It's dangerous out there, so

If I know kung-fu, I don't have to dodge bullets.

Watch how I soar, and step into the shadows

Without complaint or regrets.

For science.

There is no Earthly way of knowing

If the cake is truly inconceivable

Or if winter is really coming

Or where your towel is right now

It's dangerous to go alone!

Together we need to go deeper

We're going to need a bigger boat

And let the harvest hope for the reaper

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing

So we must put our differences behind us

Take up hokey religions and ancient weapons

Learn the air-speed velocity and use the force

For science.

Our existence deforms the universe

So one of us should say goodbye

And it shouldn't be me because

I am just too pretty to die

I will not go gently into that good night

It is pitch black and the road

Goes ever on and on, until i am out of sight

In a maze of twisty passages, all alike.

I must live long and prosper

And be a leaf on the wind, not be eaten by a grue

You may have killed my father

So don't go to sleep or the kittens will eat you

For science.

I curse your sudden

But inevitable betrayal

But you gained nothing

the princess is in another castle!

You have sent a machine

To do a human's job

In against a Sicilian

When death is on the line!

I have beaten your artificial intelligence

With real stupidity

Luckily on the subject of kneecaps

The Bible is somewhat fuzzy

I have owned all your bases

And in the darkness bound them

I really must apologise

For the inconvenience.

For science.

I said "I may be dead but I'm still pretty,

Which is more than I can say for you."

This has made a lot of people very angry

And has been widely regarded as a bad move

Most people want things like a candle-flame

But you don't have to be a gun

Although Vera is a hokey name

I'm never gonna give you up

My baggage doesn't try and kill me every five minutes

Although the pattering of hundreds of little feet

Still makes me nervous and

If your life had a face, I would punch it.

For science.

It is very cold in space, I fear

And my god, it's full of stars

I can see your house from up here

Just me and the world. And Mars.

The existence of life is

A highly overrated phenomenon.

For three years I had roses

And apologized to no one.

Practice the art of spannungsbogen

And arrive precisely when you mean to

Until you get to nine thousand and one.

Then divide by cheese error and reboot

For science.

      I did well spotting the memes and lines from things I knew, but there were a LOT of quotes from things of which I had no knowledge. I did, however, enjoy the poem even though I knew I didn't recognize many of the lines. Still, the ones I knew were a hoot to recognize! Good Job!!!

      Well, I did a little better than just random guessing. But some of it was random guessing!
