Man, I wish I could meet all of you. You would be my best friends ever! Seriously! Two people in my high school total (including me) are in robotics or tech class of some sort.

Wow...I feel so bad for you.

I am a geek because:
I'm still looking for a DM
I've competed nationally in a Visual Basic category (but didn't place)
I've aspired to do something related to programming since I was nine
I recognized the Enterprise not by history, but by reference to Star Trek
I can name most of the authors to classic novels
Music theory = <3
I am one of very few females on our Robotics team
I get offended when someone doubts my math.
I collect IDEs, compilers, programming languages, and language kits
I am a seamstress and cook only because I realized computer skills weren't going to keep me alive

I'm a geek because...

-When ever I see a dinosaur/dragon I start humming/singing TROGDOR.
-I sleep with my thumb drive under my pillow (And it has a Wii strap on it.)
-I call my guildmates up more than friends/family.
-I'm in 11 school clubs, including Chess, Scrabble, Academic SpellBowl, and SADD.
-I do my friend's geometry homework for fun. (Proofs are the best. No joke.)

Re: I am a geek because...

Hmmm let's see here.

-Every Thursday night in the summer I slowly roll down alleys in my neighborhood looking for trash people throw away. I have accumulated -1 computer which will be the brains of my CNC machine when I get some threaded rods, a blower fan which I put in my 100 inch projector, which then blew up 5 minutes after left a dense black fog in my basement. A guitar amp which was broken and will probably always be broken until I find a power supply for it, and tons of other stuff I'm forgetting.

-I built an 18 foot trebuchet, and am going to put a chainsaw motor on it to drive it around

-I built a 720p 100 inch projector using a computer LCD screen, and 400w MH light bulb. When I was building it I wired the AC wrong, and a cloud of black smoke filled the room again. But somehow it still works? (it came from the bulb too, and I still can not find another one of the same, C'mon Philips or EYE, help me out!).

-More things in my room are taken apart than fully assembled.

-On my computer desk I have a magnet from a never ending flash light, a s-video to rca jack, a potentiometer, LED's, minty boost, stepper motor, Zune 80+ Shure e2c headphones, various DC motors, 12v-> whatever voltage I want adapter, a few 2032 cell batteries, and a VISA gift card for being part of a contest (Thanks armstrong!)

-I bought an as-is subwoofer at the thrift store, replaced the internal amp with a receiver, and it pisses all the neighbors off.

-Usenet is amazing.

-I have a Roomba which I bought for $20.

-My xbox 360 no longer has a case, it is sitting on some plastic with a 120v bathroom blower fan on it. (but it's still dead!!)

-And a bit more I'm neglecting to put on.

Re: I am a geek because...

Hmmm I am a geek now to explain why
1. Me and my brother relate almost every statement someone says to World of Warcraft.
2. Me and my friends don't hang out to go place, we play video games and talk about robotics
3. The only shirts I wear are anime and WoW shirts.
4. I know more Japanese shows than I do American shows.

More to come ^_^

Re: I am a geek because...

Man if FIRST sold the FRC kits I would make a drivable robot and drive down my every day. If this happens anyone who wants to do the same should start a new thread for mods and stuff.
