    You add up the number of TOS era novels you've got and suddenly realise you've got more than Terry Pratchett books.

    (Surprised the hell out of me, and I've MET Terry Pratchett, several times)

    if you always stand at least 10 feet away from anyone who is wearing a red shirt.

    if you are still refusing to trade in your flip phone for a smart phone.

    if you are jealous of a particular style of your wife's black boots. (or that might be a different issue)

    if you believe antimatter intermix formulas can be programmed by toggling 4 switches.

    Awesome. Yeah, aren't "retro" flip phones coming back into style or something?

    You know you're a TOS fan if...you can name every single planet seen in the show, and those that are not, every spaceship, every third redshirt from the left (except Lt.Fred) and every time the Enterprise goes back in time or crosses the galactic barrier and not think it strange when everyone else does and calls you a mega-nerd! :techman:

    The crew of the Enterprise just voted to make you an honorary red shirt. :)
    Be sure to watch out for exploding rocks, lightning bolts, flying Kligats and vampire clouds. :eek:
