    You think about the physics when you're on that huge roller coaster at the amusement park. :oops: :lol:

    I certainly *feel* the physics when I'm on aforementioned ride!

    (You can't spell geek w/o "EE"!)

    LOL! Normal non-geeks don't call that physics, my friend. They call it excitement, or fun, or even nausea. :roll: Only geeks call it physics. I guess you (okay ... we) qualify! :lol:

    But that's normal, isn't it? Everybody does that, don't they?


    Note:
    Years ago on Barney Miller, a genetic engineer came in to reclaim a container of DNA that had been stolen from his lab (or to report the theft; I forget which). The writers of the show had the cops react with total and complete ignorance so that the character would have to explain to them -- for the dumb audience's benefit -- what DNA is. I complained about that at work, that they had such a low opinion of their audience. I mean, everybody knows what DNA is. And I had to be reminded that, no, not everybody knows what DNA is, since most of the audience had completed high school biology before 1960, the year that DNA was discovered.

    I loved Barney Miller!!

    At any rate, it looks like the DF geeks (there are many, and I know who you are :lol: ) aren't ready to fess up, yet. :wink: :lol:

    I work with computers, but I certainly wouldn't call myself a computer geek. I only know as much as I need to know to do my job and I stay as far away from a computer as I can when I'm not at work!

    But then I do have an insatiable thirst to know how things work. I suppose that alone puts me in the "geek" category.

    OK I fess up!! :oops:

    And I love watching science related shows on the TV, love anything to do with space and how the human body / mind works. And then there's my preoccupation with sci-fi shows .......

    Maybe I should shut up now, getting geekier by the minute. :shock: :lol:

    I know that I am a geek when I am talking on the phone about Half-Life 2, while messing with my firewall, and screw up my iptables and lock myself out of my server!!

    I'm majoring in mathematical physics... I think that alone makes me a geek. Other than that, I have been known to read both math and physics books just for entertainment.

    Sometimes I do feel like a geek... especially when people around me seem to be lost in space about a certain issue and I say to myself "Gosh, it's so obvious! It's easy!"... I feel like a geek sometimes even here... :oops: :oops:

    I used to be a total geek before I discovered Salsa! Now I am on the right track...of curing! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
