I obsess about stuff like u2 & my friends find it annoying. I'm a dancer & constantly worry about my weight, which bugs my friends. I like the Lord of the Rings a little too much & have had the same lunch at school every day for 6 years. I've been on the Spanish team at school for 3 yrs running, and have been in the geography Bee 3 times- at my school that defines a nerd. There's more- but I can't think of it right now. Oh yeah, I'm really weird, which makes me a nerd!

I'm pretty sure pretty much everyone here obsesses about U2, and lots of us obsess about far more bands. I obsess about so many bands that I feel bad when I dont give some bands as much listening time as they deserve.

Other than coming here alot you mean?

I guess that would be the fact that I read alot of comics. But not the usual ones I like stuff like Transmetropolitan, The Sandman, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, The Authority and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
I also watch anime and know way too much about U2 and punk rock and force people to listen to me rant about it.
I am also a medieval history major, which has never been considered cool - but actually is. Well it is! I don't care. Ha.

I used to be a trekkie. It all went downhill after Next Generation, though...

I'm was a piano major in college, so I could go on for a while about cool classical music and theory (if I can remember it all....).

I love reading about art history - particularly European. The different eras fascinate me (Renaissance, Baroque, Rococco, Classical, Romantic, neo-classical, impressionistic, etc).

I love going wine tasting.

I'm sort of an audiophile. I'm obsessed with good sound. Just got an SACD player a few weeks ago (sounds incredible). Love going into Hi-Fi shops to listen to expensive speakers. I also really like headphones (not the cheapos you find at Walmart or Best buy, but really good headphones that can sound better than speakers that cost $1K+). I actually have a pair of headphones that originally retailed at over $200.

I have a weakness for computer games, particularly military ones (see computer games thread). Ghost Recon drains way too much time out of a day if I let it.

I like watching the discovery channel/history channel/animal planet/national geographic, etc...

I used to be a big airplane nut. I could tell you all about jets and helicopters and any kind of aircraft.

And the biggest one of all:

I hang out on an internet forum frequently.

He he....how geekey am I???

Diemen, what is your rank in the dossier of Ghost Recon?
Have you tried the Dossier Objectives?
I just spent the last month clearing Mission 5 and Mission 15 with just a sniper in the Quick Mission mode.


Peace

Hmmm...I haven't checked my rank yet. I'll need to check out the dossier objectives, too.

If you haven't bought it yet, I highly suggest getting the Island Thunder expansion pack. The enemy AI is MUCH better, it's amazing how smart they can be sometimes. Sometimes it's frustrating how good they are, but it makes the missions much more challenging and rewarding to pull off without casualties. I'd say that Island Thunder on veteran difficulty is harder than Ghost Recon on elite.
