*checks* Yup, I've got too much free time.

I'll back that with 1,771,561.... which I memorized when I was like 8... I think.... lol :sticktongue:

Spoiler

That's the number of tribbles that fell on Captain Kirk... lol

How about a debate between myself and a fellow professor at the university of how the gravitational forces from the Death Star in Return of the Jedi would have literally made life on Endor fairly difficult since the Death Star II was in a stationary synchronous orbit... does that qualify (and yes, he and I do this often...) :cool:

When you have computer parts strewn about...  

C6H12O6 + O2 => CO2 + H2O + ATP

if (alwatsHasXamerinStudioOpen) { //Check to see if they have Xamerin studio open

	nerd = true; //Define the person as a nerd

} else if (alwaysHasXcodeOpen) {

	nerd = true; //Define the person as a nerd

} else if (alwaysHasMonoDevelopOpen) {

	nerd = true; //Define the person as a nerd

} else if (alwaysHasPythonOpen) {

	nerd = true; //Define the person as a nerd

}
else {

	nerd = false

}
if (nerd) {

	Console.WriteLine("You are a nerd.");  //Make them feel happy

}
else {

	Console.WriteLine("You are a sad non-nerd that actually has a life.");  //Insult them

}

I know, I went overboard.

Recalling fondly how to set IRQ's on a mainboard with jumpers, instead of within BIOS.

 

Building a Tesla Coil from scratch in 3rd year electronics in High School.

Yup. Did this again recently (486 + ISA boards).

You own more than one oscilloscope.

You use spare computer components as paperweights.

You know you're a nerd when you have a "nerd hoard" somewhere in your house.

Had one of those when I was a wee lad. Have an E6B still lying about as well...little too young to own a slide rule, though.

When you've actually read A Brief History of Time for fun.

Stephen Hawking? Pfft. I once read Principa by Issac Newton For Fun.

Also, when you listen to "White 'n nerdy" by Weird Al and think it is a biography of you. True story.
