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:
