@OP - yes.. please maintain a ten foot distance between me and you lest your geek-stank stings and offends my nostrils.


On the lighter side... awww buddy. Is someone picking on you? The local school yard ne'er-do-well being a bit thugish with his taunts? Perhaps you were spurned by a laddie, or lady, that you fancy? Do tell!

On the weekends, I usually spend 5~8 hours coding off and on. Not so much during week days(school + the fact that I'm not even home until ~5).

I don't find anything in the programming world particularly geeky. I find the fact that I still watch Star Trek:TNG far more 'geeky' than anything I've done while coding.

Lets just say that if you have to ask if you are a geek you are not a geek. Geeks are oblivious to their geekdom... well until they are made aware of it by others.

Other things that might point to you being a geek....

1) You ask DIC coders about how to handle girls... if we knew, would we be here talking about code on weekends or in the middle of the night?

2) You pride yourself on finding the solution to a binary sorting algorithm rather than finding a comb to comb your hair.

3) You get funny feelings when you see Counselor Troi on STNG because she wears a different uniform than everyone else and it shows a little cleavage.

4) You yell at the show Big Bang Theory because they are talking about a scientific subject and "Doing it wrong!"

5) You laugh whenever someone mentions the old show "Sliders" because it reminds you of that KFC chicken you ate last night and your episode with it the next morning on the toilet.

But these are only a handful of hints, there are many more that I will leave to you to explore.

:)

Well sh*t that graphic made me realize I am a nerd. I guess I was oblivious to being a nerd until someone told me.

Oh well.
