...youve played games at a friends house so long, his mom said goodnight to you AND good morning. and you were in the same server.
...you think about how you downloads are doing while in class.
...your notes are written IN code.
...better yet, in code on your Ti.
...youve drank so many caffeinated drinks, that if tested, you would probably have a blood caffeine content [crazy]
...during school or at work you wish you were gaming.
...you've used "rtfm noob" when someone asked you directions
...you read ASCII and Numbers as fluently as you do letters.
...when someone says "box" you think computer.
...you stick your tounge out in sickness at a beige box.
...you agree with someone if they say "you like balls"

and lastly. you dont have a server, yet you are running a RAID 0+1 in your leet box.

... when your wife asks if you have a log for the fireplace, and you think to yourself, "Why does she think I keep a record of fireplace usage? Should I be?" And 10 seconds later you realize she means a piece of wood. (Actual true story)

Yeah, aaxine is awesome...and one is probably more of a ridiculous geek for making a screenshot of it [Wink] , found here.
Look at it from at least 1 meter away to make some sense of it. It looks a lot better full screen, from tty1, with 1024x768 pixels worth of text (I don't know the col x rows of it ATM.)

someone asks a rhetorical or "i wonder..." question, and you have an answser within a few seconds thanks to your Danger Sidekick

Dont know if thats funny or not, but it hapens to me a lot (except @ school. I am convinced our town made sure the cell towers couldn't cover the school. Then again, connecticut is the worst state for cell coverage...

I quite enjoyed the math section. The math section on form S was a laugh.

-You begin counting at zero
-You call more than one Kleenex Kleenices without thinking. (after all, that's how it is for vertex...)
-You have ever taught a clas/lesson in your highschool/college
-You gave the lesson without any preparation (it was on Fractal Geometry)
-You read more web comics than real comics

I beleive that would be the form I got. I think I did very well on it. So what did you put for the Major and Career sections? I put 400 on both, "Engineering"

Bleh. Form S wasn't that easy. Alright, yeah, the math was pretty silly... but one stupid mistake will bring you down from an 800 to like a 750 :\. And the verbal... Don't laugh, but I forgot what "tacit" meant. And some of the reading comp questions seemed a bit ambiguous to me... [Razz]

You know you're a geek when you want something to eat, and your pointer moves towards your K-Lite icon.

You know you're a geek when you have a stick of RAM dangling from your school backpack.

You know you're a geek when your friend says the word "transform", and the "transformers" theme starts playing in your head.

You know you're a geek when you draw anatomical drawings of a dragon during class.

You know you're a geek when you make the plural of anything that sounds like it ends with "us", "i". (Genius/Genii, Bus/Bi...hehe..heh...*hides*)

You know you're a geek when you have combed your hair with a processor (*looks at old Pentium sitting in between the towers of coffee mugs*)

You know you're a geek when you have a habit of calling stupid people "nerfherders" when you pass them by.

You know you're a geek when you do field studies on preps. "Look at the way they move in packs!" "Fascinating" "There...a bull of their tribe" "See the way they surround him and fight to be the first to mate". (Later, in the girl's restroom): "Look at the way they apply the substances. Some sort of camoflauge perhaps?" "Maybe, maybe. But look at this. Another one of their species is entering. Telling each other about the bull of their species and the first female to mate? What's this? An intelligent exchange of information?" "Very interesting indeed...""Oh, no! We have been detected. Flee, my collegue, flee!" "OUCH! Well, it seems that they deal with intruders by employing their flat palm as a bludgeoning weapon!" "OUCH Yes OUCH very interesting! OUCH" ...sorry. Got a bit carried away there, but seriously, I did that one time (not the restroom bit, but the other one) and they really do move in packs and surround the "bull". Funny stuff.

You know you're a geek when you have a tie-pin made from an old intel CPU.

(yes, 'twas my first 8088, carefully ground back to reveal the silicon and metal inside, then covered with clear epoxy. My way of geekifying a suit-and-tie job)

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
