You think about the physics when you're on that huge roller coaster at the amusement park. :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?
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!!
Hmm. Somebody around here is honest. :wink:
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...
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:
definitely not a geek here..
a freak tho.. well.. maybe lol
Hmmm, you sound as if you might be my long lost twin sister... :roll: :lol:
(even though I already have a twin brother... maybe we are triplets :lol
(psst... so how do you like Halflife 2?)
I'm definately a geek. Always have been. :wink:
Yepper! I knew some geeks would come out of the woodwork eventually. :lol:
