If you started watching STAR TREK as a child, did it expand your vocabulary and often make you sound like the smartest kid in class?
Actually, it made me sound like a geek.

. . . I guess it was more than just from Trek, but TV and the movies had led me to believe that the way Kirk, Bond, James West et al got a different woman every week was the way real life was supposed to work. As I progressed thru high school, I was disabused of this misconception. BIG time.
I suppose at some point you entertained the possibility that a room full of science fiction books and spaceship models wasn't exactly a chick magnet.
