    ...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.)

    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. 8-}

    ...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.

    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 think the term "fanboy" is a derogatory term.

    ...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.

    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."
