You Know You Are A Geek When

Recommended Posts

Rules are simple, post a sentence starting with "You know you are a geek when"

For example:

You know you are a geek when you can read a file format off a network capture looking at just hex.

You know you are a geek when you can convert hex to binary to hex more easily than 24 hour time to 12 hour time.

You know you are a geek when you throw a d20 on a skill check to see if you are ok to drive.

Just a few examples for now, i want everyone to have a good go at it before posting more.

(Yes i know this has been done before, i should know, i did it; but it's still a ton of fun, so...)

[ probably true, WWIII, WWIII, probably true, probably true, yep, first president of the world, WW$-{{\hbar^2}\over{2m}}\nabla^2\Psi+V\Psi=i\hbar{{\delta\Psi}\over{\delta t}}$, probably wrote the kernel modules for the Linus robot hardware, would reverse and install homebrew on all of the above robots, would whip-up the hardware and software for the robots one boring afternoon...]
