You know you're a

  1. Jan 21, 2009 #1
    This is a game that I just seem to have thought of and I thought would be interesting based on the way that most people in this forum think.

    Every 16 posts (every page), someone gives a new word that can be defined as a classification of a person or a description of a person.

    Then you respond with a situation that defines that person.

    Word: Trekkie (a Star Trek fanatic)

    Example: You know you're a trekkie when you base personal research off of things that you saw on the show.

    You know you're a trekkie when you can correctly use the word 'trekkie' in a sentence that is sensitive to its meaning.

    Not wanting to name names but -
    You know your a trekkie when you describe a galaxy in the HDF image as shaped like a klingon warship - in a paper to a refereed journal.

    The astronomer-trekkie in question of course gave the precise ship class and model, so everyone else would know which galaxy in the field he was describing.

    What?!?!? :surprised

    It is said that you know you're a Whovian if you hate Star Trek, but I don't buy that one either.

    I loved Star Wars, I loved Star Trek, and I even had a dog named after Dr. Who. However, I did date in high school, so maybe I'm not a true trekkie. :biggrin:

    You know you're a trekkie when you feel the compulsion to point out that Romulan is actually spelled with an a.
