This came to me by e-mail a few years ago. Apparently, I AM a nerd...

Originally, this was a test to find out if you are a physics major. It may apply to ANY science type major.

Due to the enormous workload involved in science classes combined with stress and lack of sleep, science students often forget (either by accident, defense mechanism, or intentionally) what their major really is. Thus, as a science major, someone took it upon themself to create a small list of indicators to help remember what we really are.

You may be a science major if...

- if you chuckle whenever anyone says "centrifugal force"
- if you've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.
- if you frequently whistle the theme song to "MacGyver." (note: maybe this should be "star trek" now?)
- if you always do homework on Friday nights.
- if you think in "math."
- if you have a pet named after a scientist.
- if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you claim to have accidentally determined its momentum so precisely, that according to Heisenbery it could be anywhere in the universe.
- if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.
- if the Humane society has you arrested because you actually performed the Schrodinger's Cat experiment.
- if you avoid doing anything because you don't want to contribute to the eventual heat-death of the universe.
- if you consider ANY non-science course "easy".
- if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.
- if you'll assume that a "horse" is a "sphere" in order to make the math easier.
- if you can translate English into Binary.
- if you can't remember what's behind the door in the science building/wing which says "Exit."
- if you have to bring a jacket with you, in the middle of summer, because there's a wind-chill factor in the lab.
- if you are completely addicted to caffeine.
- if you know how to integrate a chicken and can take the derivative of water.
- if you've calculated that the World Series actually diverges.
- if you hesitate to look at something because you don't want to break down its wave function.
- if you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.
- if you understood more than five of these indicators.
- if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door.
