You might be a geek (or an idiot) is you have ever jumped off a house with a chicken held above your head.
I was 7! AND IT WAS A LARGE AND POWERFUL CHICKEN!! I THINK I DID FLY!! ;;;>_>

"You know you're a geek, when you get a coloscopy bag so you can play WOW longer."
I think that should be 'colostomy.'

You're a gun-geek if you watch 'Gunslinger Girls' and can tell that's *not* an HK G3 but a CETME knock-off because of the gas ports in the forestock are wrong...

You maybe a geek if you own and can use an abacus, slide rule, a Kurta mechanical calculator, or a planimeter.
And you can beat a hand calculator.

You can flawlessly quote any four contiguous lines of dialogue from any Monty Python skit or movie.

You can quote any line from The Blake 7.

You tell tech-jokes or puns which use physics or chemistry terms. And your friends get the jokes.

You try to find an alloy phase diagram that would make a good pattern for an evening dress.

You read a recipe and start thinking through the protein chemistry changes caused by temperature plus the lemon juice lowering the pH, and know the oxidation states of whichever elements will get that "golden brown" color mentioned when it's done.

When computer code appears in a movie, you recognize the language and you can spot the bugs. And Camel Case is 'old school.'

You can build a working crystal radio set with stuff around your house, including making a working semiconductor junction with, say, a piece of galena or other mineral you picked up outside.

You have your own weather instruments and can beat the Weather Channel on an accurate 4-day forecast for your local area.

If you're watching the new trailer for X-Men Origins and can name almost/every mutant as they come onscreen, you might be a geek.

Wolverine, Sabretooth, Emma Frost, Gambit, Blob... I'd have to re-watch it to tell you the others.

If you're totally mystified by some of what's in Prinz Eugene's post, but *really* wanna learn how to do some of it (particularly assembling the radio and using found rocks or whatnot), you might be a nerd/geek or at least a wanna-be! *guilty*

If you watch an ep of The Big Bang, and you actually follow all or almost all of what the nerd/geek lead characters say, and not only comprehend it, but debate it or add accurate commentary upon it on the commercial break, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you watch The Big Bang because you enjoy refreshing your memory on topics such as quantum physics more than you bother with the whole romantic tension subplot, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you actually find someone from whom you can learn esoteric information sexier than someone intellectually bland but physically looking like a model, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you watch My Name is Earl because you love Jason Lee from Mall Rats and Chasing Amy, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If someone asks what your favorite scene from Batman is, and yours is from a comic from before you were born or from the original series, you might be an old-school nerd/geek.

If your friend is talking about the rock band, The Who, but you keep giggling because you're thinking of something you saw on Dr. Who, you might be a nerd/geek. If it's from the original series, you might be an old school nerd/geek.

If you were watching the ep of "Chuck vs. Tom Sawyer," involving **spoiler alert!**

the '80s arcade game, Missile Command,

and you were mentally playing along and correcting the moves in the game,
you might be an old school nerd/geek.

If you were watching "Chuck vs. Tom Sawyer," as above, and knew all the lyrics to the titular Rush song, and sang along with it, you might be an old school nerd/geek. *guilty* And if, while doing so, you proudly pointed out that Geddy Lee (singer of Rush) is Jewish, you might be a Jewish old school nerd/geek. *guilty*. Speaking of which, Happy Chanukah (12/21 eve) everyone. Oh and if you ever heard the story of Chanukah, and tried to envision how one might scientifically keep a menorah aflame for 8 days on only one cruze of oil, you might be a Jewish nerd/geek. *guilty*

Well, more accurately, it starts at sunset on the 20th.

If you think dressing up like a Jeff Dunham puppet is cool, you might be a nerd/geek.

If you hope that the next American Idol is an otaku, and dresses up in copslay during his/her final performance, you might be a nerd/geek.

Ill be six months on Christmas. Its our first and we are SUPER excited! And I dont think Ive said it in the forums yet but ITS A BOY!

*Back on Topic :)*

You might be a geek if your plotting cosplays for a 1 year old that wont make him uncomfortable.

You might be a geek if you get irratated in Suncoast for changing all the names of the Animes you grew up watching! No more english names!

You might be a geek if your plans for the winter ivolve camping in a self constructed igloo for the night. *Not mine, David's and friends*

You might be a geek if you just HAD to buy the Limited Batman Edition phone as soon as you saw it. *Guilty*

Gah! It's "Eugen" (OY-gen) not "Eugene" (you-GENE.)

Next Happy Hannukah to ALL, while we're thinking about it! And very cool on Geddy Lee and RUSH.

OK back to geek-a-zoid life: The guy that did the crystal radio from galena was one of my good friends from high school. He was prez of the ham radio club and new tons about circuits and tubes (he could identify what many of them did by their numbers - I just know about 3 or 4.) There are also books about how to make your own vacuum tubes using ashtrays and epoxy. Much geeking required...

If you can convince non-nerds that what you're doing is logical and maybe even cool, you're an awesome nerd/geek.

Quote from: Sporty_Otaku
dressing up for football games
Speaking of football and other sports, isn't there (generally) an inverse relationship between interest in sports on TV and interest in things that geeks and nerds tend to get into? The correlation may be weak, or maybe stronger. So:

You may be a geek if someone mentions 'the playoffs' or 'semifinals' and you have no clue what sport it is.

You could score a perfect zero on any quiz where you match the college or the city to its sports teams. Or the team name to what sport they play.

Truth is geekier than fiction: Back in the VCR days, we came up with the term 'crudball' for any sport that runs overtime and eats into the SF show you are trying to tape so as to watch later... If you press 'play' and see guys and a ball instead of spaceships and cool costumes, the sport you are watching is a crudball game.

You might be a *relatively broke* nerd/geek if you just hooked your VCR back up after a year or two dormant, because you can't afford to buy or rent new anime or pay for cable, so you're going to watch the VHS tapes you got on sale for $5 each from Emerald a couple years ago instead.

If you hear a football commentator on TV referring to a "crossplay" & think of ManFaye, ManRei, or Sailor Bubba, you might be a nerd/geek.

(Tidpit of info: in football, crossplay is an offensive play where the quarterback passes the ball to a runningback, about eight yards to his left or right; it's similar to a lateral pass.  Crossplay is also a spiking technique in volleyball).

If the term "old school" to you means an Atari, you might be a nerd/geek.
Guilty.
Really old school, I suppose, would be Pong, TRS-80s, & Basic......

If you are so addicted to things such as this forum, con planning, and Facebook, that you periodically have to agree to hide your laptop to placate your fuming boyfriend, you might be a nerd/geek.
That was me yesterday morning. Sigh.

Oh yeah and btw if you're on Facebook, PM me so we can friend-add :)

If, while your Christian boyfriend is mentioning the Dead Sea Scrolls, your mind immediately leaps to "Ninja Scroll," you might be a nerd/geek. *just happened this morning*

If, when your boyfriend tells you to quit using the word 'cute' so much, you automatically switch to 'kawaii', you might be a nerd/geek. If, when your boyfriend is puzzled wondering why you'd refer to an island of Hawaii, and you have to explain 'kawaii' to him, you might be a nerd/geek who seriously needs to nerdify or geekify her partner to stay afloat. *just happened this hour*

If you love Hello Kitty so much that even your hanging air freshener is Hello Kitty, you might be a nerd/geek. *looking right at mine now*

If Anthony Michael Hall's character was the one with whom you most identified the first time you saw "The Breakfast Club," you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty* Especially if one of your favorite scenes in the whole movie is when he gives himself a light jab on the chin congratulating himself for how well he wrote the Club's closing salvo to the Principal. *guilty* Especially if you remember that piece virtually word for word. *guilty back in the day*.

Guilty. You might be a nerd/geek if you picture what you're friends would look like as action figures, and if a couple of the main reasons you're looking forward to next year are Joss Whedon's Dollhouse and Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman remake.

If you're already making plans w/your friends for the opening of the Harry Potter theme park in Florida, you might be a nerd/geek.
