Geek here too. And I read my comics digitally.
...when your 6-year-old's growth spurt immediately brings to mind the Pippin quote about second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, afternoon tea, dinner and supper.
(The kiddo eats all the time these days, and he's skinny so I'm not stopping him.)
...you know any of these maps as well or at least as well as your own home city or state or country.
You're Commander Shepard and this is your favorite store on the Citadel.
I would say when you've seen those maps, memorized them, and then attempted to improve at least one so it makes more sense. Oh wait, that's insanity.
...you see this and can pick out not only many of the characters but know their heights off the top of you rhead.
Arisheim the Judge-2,000 feet, Godzilla looks like the 80 meter version, I see Voltron, Galactus always has an official height of 28'9" but he is obviously taller than that here.
Whoa, Psyco Gundam? Obscure pick, but I approve.
You actually have an hour to yourself in the house and use it to watch a documentary on Alexander the Great... and are then mad about how it left out a lot of information.
You know more about your fandom then you do about your school work
You think the term "fanboy" is a derogatory term.
you make an excel spreadsheet to calculate possible variations in rent distribution.
You listen to movie soundtracks more then regular music
...I keep reading the name of the lead character in a fantasy book, Valder, as Vader.
...you giggle at yourself for coming up with "Jedi use Forcebook."
Actually, I've heard that a couple times before. http://www.theforcebook.com/
being a nerd means registering here too....
The way you think makes you wonder if thats what a certain character would think or say
You post on a Star Wars message board while proctoring a math final you wrote.
...while watching Game Of Shadows you think, "Holmes would make a good Diviner Specialist Wizard in D&D."
You're dressed in NICE, non-nerdy clothes, and the librarian takes one look at you and pegs you for a SF/Fantasy reader.
...when your wi-fi network is named the Skynet Defense Network.
...when at school you are known as the Star Wars guy.
...when you read a wiki based on fiction and edit it when you see a mistake.
...when your friends ask you about a Battle in a work of sci-fi and you can tell them the name of the commander, the cause, the armament of both of the sides, who won, and the causality count.
...You make sure that your parents plan the family trip to Disney so that you can get your copy of a Star Wars reference book signed by the author, who made the signature out to your username from TF.N.
...You spend any given episode of Spartacus giggling at all of the historical inaccuracies, because it's either that or crying.
The Klingon dictionary is BS anyway... "beam me up" doesn't match Star Trek III!
^...that's when you know.
Good lord I'd forgotten all about that.
... you have Ray Park sign a poster of Qui/Maul with, "Leona, I'm sorry for your loss."
You get excited when a Dodger broadcaster responds to a tweet of yours, even though he disagreed with the point you made.
You open the door tonight after 14 hours at the office, fall on the couch, look up at the ceiling and say:
"Welcome home, Lord Tyranus. You have done well."
