You know you're a geek when...


Recommended Posts

How do YOU know you're a geek?

I'll start...(please excuse my Linux fanboy humor :P)

You have used words like "lol" and "omg" in daily speech

You miss the F1 button under math classes

You say lol instead of laughing.. or you write =D, =P in essays at school

You try to get into the BIOS of your car

You scream "Just ******* google it" when somebody asks a simple question in the class

You accuse everybody running faster than your self of using speed hack

You've got The Flu and are trying to do a virus check

Somebody asks you about your address, you give them: 192.12.0.140

You are seriously considering asking your doctor how much you can overclock your brain

At McDonalds, you're ordering a 160MB hamburger

You wish you've ordered your house through Microsoft, it would be so easy to just take the backdoor in..

Keep it going!

You install new hardware in your house and start to look for the reboot key.

You don't cut an apple pie into slices. You partition it.

You are late for class/work and blame it on lag.

You get phone calls from your computer.

You pass those signs that tell you your speed and scream "HIGH SCORE!"

You take notes in html with css formatting.

You mean you know when you are a retard when...
Sad, but unfortunately true.

Seriously, you can't consciously know when you're not suppose to use emoticons?!? :/

Hmm, how about when you're digging through old stuff in a box by your computer and you find a rubber ball with flashing lights and the TechTV logo printed on it that you got when you first met and got an autograph from Leo LaPorte and Patrick Norton. Back when there was quality technology television and not the heinous crap on G4 where they give a poseur like Kevin Pereira a television show and grab any hooker off the street and stick them in front of a TelePrompTer that have no clue what the heck they are talking about.

Then a little part inside of you dies.

Yes, thread is what I "ment". lol. :-)

EDIT:

You look at a movie trailer and think, "I have that typeface."

You set up an automatic rerouting of your e-mail to your pager.

You get sudden attacks of bittersweet nostalgic feelings when thinking about your long-lost old Commodore 64, Sinclair ZX-81, TRS-80 (or whatever hardware you were raised on), and use large amounts of money/time trying to track one down.

Someone asks you what languages you know, and you reply Upper Slavic, French, Esperanto and C.

You spend more than 10 minutes contemplating how traffic lights work.

You can talk for hours about how, in 25 years, the whole country won't have E-Mail addresses.

You buy a Mac SE, install 7.1 and MacHTTP, and become a web server - running over PPP.

If you paid $6000 for your computer and $500 for your car.
