When you use Sheldon's factor of 10000 error in the element episode as a practical example of checking calculations with your genius maths class in Grade 6.

When you use Sheldon's Bazinga ball pit, vegetable and broken plate and food experiences to justify why it's important for even the smart kids in Maths class to use visual cues to problem solve

When your only option for your daughters fictional character 18th birthday party is to go out and buy a cheap red t shirt, skivvy and make an iron on transfer Flash insignia so you can come as Sheldon Cooper.

When you yell at your family at dinner time to "please pass the butter!"

When your wife finds a copy of the lyrics to a song in her synced notes on her iPhone and asks "Who's Bernadette and why are you writing a song about her?"

When you are doing wet day yard duty at school, find a group of Grade 5 kids plays rock scissors paper and spend the whole duty teaching them the lizard Spock combinations.

Lol!  I remember when we weren't allowed to used calculators for even the most basic of math equations.

What's sad is we couldn't use calculators, only because calculators were huge mechanical things and we didn't have any in our classrooms. There was one, in the office.

And the ones we had weren't the fancy ones like Mayim promotes (the T1??).

I often say "Are you aware, that your behavior is symptomatic of obsessive compulsive disorder?" sometimes they go like "really?" and that makes me laugh even more  :icon_cheesygrin: I hope that one day someone answers me with "denial, denial, denial"  :icon_cheesygrin:

In Mondays newspaper trivia quiz, one of the questions was name the Austrian scientist famous for his experiment with a cat. The whole table in the staff room answered in unison " Schrodinger!" Never have so many below average trivia players on staff known an obscure question so confidently. Aah Big Bang you teach us so much!

I had no idea who Bill Nye was, or Leonard Nimoy was, had heard of Star Trek before BBT, but when Sheldon did live long and prosper sign, I thought it was only done on the Big Bang Theory haha. I guess you could say buying the dvd's invades your life. particularly first three seasons. I have to yet to buy Season 6 or Season 7, but probably well when I get money haha, guess you could say Penny invades my lift too :p.

well, my fiancee is a big fan of the show (he's worse than me), and he has established the sheldonian calendar at home regarding food, except for thai food night. Our wi-fi password is "pennygetyourownwifi" and we quote the show a lot all the time to each other.

We also do that with Doctor Who LOL

I did not know Bill Nye either (but my kids recognized his name immediately).

 

When you said you did not know who Leonard Nimoy was I had to check your profile. Unlike you I was born before Star Trek and in North America. The original Star Trek series was my favorite science fiction series until they started making Star Trek movies (the movies were so bad that the franchise was tainted in my eyes from then on). As a teenager I even read Leonard Nimoy's book I am not Spock. As a kid Spock was my favorite character by far.

 

The other name that my kids knew and I did not was Stan Lee.

 

TBBT in general reminds me of my late teens and early 20's as well as some of my friends from those years. It also reminds me of going to those first couple terible Star Trek movies. Back in the days when one stood in long line ups to get in (before all the multi screen theaters). A lot of my university engineering  class mates were in that first showing of The Wrath of Khan (1982). The movie was terrible but the audience was a hoot. TBBT guys are better behaved than I remember my classmates being but those guys were undergrads and the TBBT guys have advanced degrees (they ought to be more mature than they are).

 

It was in my last few years of high school my friends and I played D&D. I had no time for that in university or since.
