You stare at carved-stone angels as you pass them by so they remain stone and do not touch you. (sending you back in time.)

Always thought Canth was more fun than Mnementh, myself.

My copies are so old they have the cover art that has the dragons looking like brontos.

 

I hear they are going to attempt a Pern movie.  Hope they don't hose it up like the tv series they were going to attempt was going to do.

You know the creation myth of Middle Earth better than you know the book of Genesis.

 

You have deep philosphical conversations about the psychological motivations of the characters in Dragonball Z.

Good Point! Of course not everyone reads the same things, and one person is not likely to "get" it all.

When Edward James Olmos is following you on Twitter and your pretty sure it's because he think you might be a Cylon.

Has it occurred to you he might be right?

Re: You Know You're a SF/Fantasy Geek When...

Long before I ever even heard of Cylons, the robot that does not know it's a robot has been a recurring theme in SF.  Can you say for sure, 100% no doubt, that it is impossible for you to be a Cylon?

 

Didn't think so.

Well, I had to have my knees REPLACED,) (versus a mere repair), so, since they are now titanium, steel, and plastic, I suppose I could be classified as a Cylon hybrid?!?!?
