Well my daughter and I went to a b-day party today. They were talking about doing fingernails together with their daughters. When I started talking about how we had made dried lentils into asteroids, which we pounded into flour on a plate to see what kind of craters we could make. I got part way through and realized from their faces that they don't crash asteroids in their kitchens. So I didn't mention how we made a cloud nebula in a soda bottle. LOL

When has your geekness stood out?

____ You're the GEEK when the Grandkids know what these news stories are about. The oldest grandchild even knows Morse Code.

You know you're a Geek Parent when you hold your kids birthday party at The Science Museum

You know you have a Geek Child when she asks for her birthday party to be held there.

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.

You know you are a geek parent when the reason you are online, typing with one hand in a dimly lit room at one in the morning is that you are checking the latest posts at GeekCulture during the 1 a.m. feeding of your 10 day old.

This last Christmas my 13 yr old son asked for the DVD box set of Firefly for one of his presents, and I, unlike most here, am not even particularly interested in Sci Fi.

He's doomed. [crazy]
