    You know you're a geek if/when...

    Yes, I know, this thread is pointless for anything but my amusement; So sue me...

    Not sure if we've had a thread like this before but I must give 100% credit to the person who made me decide to post this... Ben.

    Anyway...


    You know your a geek when your girlfriends name ends in ".JPG".

    You know PI to the 14th decimal place.

    Lol.... alright, I admit to being a geek.
    3.14159 2653 589 79 323 84 626 433 8
    (the spaces represent the pauses in my memory. )
    The 8 is the last number I could recall from my memory until I had to consult the internet.
    I used to have it down this far:
    3.14159 2653 589 79 323 84 626 433 8 32 79 50
    looks like I need to refresh my memory.

    ...when you stop watching "who wants to me a millionaire" because you consider all their questions preschool-level.

    ...when your computer is on longer than your t.v.

    ...if you don't know what a t.v. is.

    ...you like to measure the height of trees without the use your math teacher.

    ...when you get A's in class without anyone caring.

    ...you memorized what "c" actually stands for in the equation e=mc˛.

    ...you speak better latin than english

    Does all this geekness make your imaginary girlfriends angry? MWAHAHA

    Yeah, that's not nice...but I just watched Triumph the Insult Comic Dog verbally beating people at a Star Wars convention with a similar line...and...it just felt right.

    wow. nerdiness indeed


    -when you write your notes in a coding language (check)
    -when you wake up in the morning and ask "whose retainer is this?" and several people put down their keyboards to try to determine the answer.
    -if you've ever stopped writing in binary because "it's lost its appeal"
    -if you try to pick up women by saying "hey babe, wanna see my root drive?"

    By the way, I had to use a reference chart to write that. I'm only a halfbreed geek.
