Looks like FPS gamers are NOT on the list!) Comments Reply 1 of 19 ibrowse Posts: 1,749member October 15, 2003 8:01PM Guilty of 10 and 6, well not really 6m or am I... either way, I don't think this list is completely accurate. Reply 2 of 19 chinney Posts: 1,019member October 15, 2003 8:09PM Guilty of Star Trek, but only in a private, non-obtrusive sort of way.Not guilty of any of the others. I notice that wasting time on AppleInsider is not mentioned, however. How accurate could it be? Reply 3 of 19 eugene Posts: 8,254member October 15, 2003 8:42PM WTF is a Furry? Jesus Christ.

IIRC, Furries started as a Virtual MUD Phenomenon (a la EverCrack)there are mentions in WIRED, a few books, and a fair bit of Japanese press Reply 6 of 19 splinemodel Posts: 7,311member October 16, 2003 12:18AM I do like Star Trek, but I don't think I'm a trekkie. I said I liked Star Trek once and some guy (who was apparently a trekkie) started to ask me questions about what I thought about "Tasha Yar." (that was the gist of it) I don't know enough about Tasha Yar to answer that question, to this day. Except that she was hotter than Worf.Just to answer questions about the fact that I brought up a short lived character in Star Trek, I have a fantastic long term memory. I honestly can't help it.Furthermore, in certain circle (cough ivy league cough) most people are closet Star Trek fans. Reply 7 of 19 der kopf Posts: 2,275member October 16, 2003 7:03PM Wow. I never knew I had that little geek in me. None of these 10 passtimes can I call my own. Reply 8 of 19 matt danger Posts: 170member October 16, 2003 7:36PM I think "seeing how far to the longest decimal you can remember Pie"At one point I could remember it to the 11th place, it's something I am proud of.

Reply 15 of 19 burningwheel Posts: 1,827member October 17, 2003 12:55PM i guess i'm no geek Reply 16 of 19 gardenofearthlydelights Posts: 961member October 17, 2003 1:19PM I've gotten laid after scrapbooking. It's 99% women (but 97% wives and mothers). Beats trekking. Reply 17 of 19 giaguara Posts: 2,724member October 17, 2003 2:26PM Wow. Making iPod photos or photographing your airline meals is not on the list. So I'm not a geek ... Reply 18 of 19 aquafire Posts: 2,758member November 12, 2003 11:31PM I am a Trekker & proud of it. But in my case it just consists of watching it on TV and eating a sandwich & drinking a beer or three. No dressing up or anything..much too embarrassing.....Does that make me a Geek...?
