How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 94
While streaming an episode of The X-Files on Netflix, you become annoyed with an archeological graduate student character who brings her dog to the museum where she works because as a student in a special collections library science course, you know that bringing animals into a museum (which is a type of special collection) is about as reasonable as a carpenter breeding termites as a hobby and then releasing them in his workshop.
It’s at this point when you realize that you have raised no objections to the extraterrestrial plots, supernatural encounters, and government conspiracies presented in The X-Files. Only when a character brings a dog into a museum (an action that would be considered incompetent among those in your professional field) do you find yourself saying, “Oh come on! That would never happen!”
