    What if I know what it means, but it's not a part of my education/field? Am I a displaced nerd/geek?

    You can help support this displaced nerd for as little as a dollar a day.

    If that person you're talking to seems too good or too good-looking to be real... It's probably because they AREN'T. Or at least, they aren't being real... with you. Please, be careful! <3

    No...

    I'd need a crash course on how to use pivot tables first.

    But who says you can't teach an old nerd new tricks.

    If you need spreadsheets to organize other spreadsheets, you may as well just jump in with both feet and build a database.

    Are these my thoughts or is this part of the script? I don't know.

    It was in part inspired by the English revolt of 1381. Thomas Paine rehabilitated Wat Tyler's image. Before then, he was reviled as a "ribald" and a "villain". Robert Southey at the age of 19, wrote a play about Tyler and a toast "May there ever be a Wat Tyler as long as there are tax collectors!" But he was embarrased because he didn't approve of the violence of the French Revolution, so tried to suppress his play for the rest of his life. The play outsold the rest of his writings, three fold.

    I was glad to find this out, because the whole time I was reading the book, I was thinking "what a fantastic movie the events of 1381 would make".

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    ...when I've been looking at my finances and figuring out how long it would take me to purchase the 1/72 and 1/144 scale Bandai Star Wars model kits to hold in reserve until such time as I could build them and display them.

    ...when at the doctor's office today, out of all the magazine selections to read while waiting, I go for the one issue of Scientific American and am riveted by the article about the new detection methods for supermassive black holes.
    Some days, I feel like removing the SIM from my phone, breaking it in pieces, tossing the phone in a wood chipper, grabbing my bug-out bag, leave everyone without saying a word, and just going ghost for the rest of my life.

    You know you're a nerd/geek when... you turn the Streams thread into a tech support thread. Again.
