You Might be a Nerd…

You might be a nerd if you read and downloaded the U.S. Navy report on the salvage of the wreckage of the space shuttle Challenger. You’re definitely a nerd if you were amused by the mention of the recovery during salvage operations of a duffel bag containing an estimated $30M in cocaine, and you may need help if your first response was to search Usenet for conspiracy theories involving the space shuttle and cocaine…

Not that, you know, there’s anything wrong with that, of course. 🙂

You might also be a nerd if you enjoy browsing propaganda-rich, eye-candy-filled planners or calendars, which nearly every part of the government seems to produce these days; the most recent one I’ve stumbled across is this one, a planner produced by USARPAC – that’s the United States Army, Pacific, or “your Army in the Pacific”, as they like to refer to themselves. Why the largest body of water on the planet needs an army is beyond me; I guess you can’t expect the Navy to do everything, right?

(That’s a joke, by the way; save the vitriolic hate mail for another day, thanks.)
