You may be a Geek if you think the way to woo a young lady is to show her your camel herd. Or your barn full of yams.

You may be a Geek if, to you, wearing a "relatively clean" t-shirt means wearing the one less soiled than your other one*.

You may be a Geek if the most burning issue on your mind is what the writers will do in seven years when the Doctor uses up the last of his regenerations.

You may be a geek if your favorite casual reading consists of game manuals (especially if you carry them around with you or leave them in the bathroom).
