-when you look at page 169 in a book and immediately think, "that's 132!"
-when on jeopardy the guy wagers and loses $10,001 during final jeopardy and all you can think is, "that's a palindrome!"
-when the highlight of your week is your weekly MathCounts practice
-when over spring break all you are going to do is MathCounts (but state competition is coming up soon, so i have a semi-valid reason...)
-when your two goals for the year are getting to national MathCounts and being smarter (in math) than the smartest kid in your school
-when you actually are smarter (once again, in math) than the smartest kid in your school
-when all of your best friends are also math nerds
-when you get aquestion wrong and everybody in your class is shocked
-when you have come to accept your nerd-ness

  • When you memorize math problems and catch yourself calculating probabilities on styrofoam cups.
  • When someone tells you that math is useless and you proceed to prove that math is everywhere.
  • You incorporate factorials into a card game.

When you are always thinking about differently based numbering systems.
...And when you calculate fibonaccis in base-twelve.

Edit: And know fifty digits of pi. Not to mention having a pi shirt....

-when you own a "nerd with a bird" shirt. (its really cute. it has snoopy and that little bird doing math calculations and things on it.)
-when one of your really good friends has the first 80 digits of pi memorized.
-when the said friends starts reciting those digits and you listen patiently until he stops after the first 20 digits or so, and then wonder if he really has the first 80 digits memorized.
-when another one of your really good friends is writing a program on a calculator to calculate the digits of pi...without pressing the pi button
-when the two above friends have programmed calculators together for over a year, and when you find out, you approve. (i havent really approved yet. im still completely :wacko: :blink: :wacko: about it.)
-when you do math problems for fun.
-when you hear that you'll be doing conic sections in class soon and you say "yay! conic sections!" while everybody else either groans or looks extremely confused.
-when you're the only person in your class who knows what a hyperbola is.
-when you realize that both of your posts are probably longer than all of the others combined...

When you play a recording of the known digits of pi in your car avery morning on the way to work, and memorize all (or a whole frickin' lot) of them. (I don't do this, but I heard about someone who did.)
When you keep saying, "That is not pi, that is an estimate of it" when someone says, "Pi equals 3.14."
When you make a pie in the shape of pi. (Didn't actually do this, but thought about it for pi day last year. By the way, the closest to pi a single day has come to was on March thirteenth in the year one-thousand five-hundred ninety-three.)

Yes, I love pi(e).
