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

You're from England?  I'll be sure to read your posts with a British accent just like Spook's.  :)

Went to my physical therapy appointment today. My therapist wanted to start me on ultra sound therapy He took me over and introduced me to the woman who was going to be doing the ultrasound, her name was Priya. She must have seen my eyes widen and said "you must be a Big Bang Theory fan." LOL

My wife is an engineering professor at a local university and I am just a simple electrical engineer (oompa loompa). We watch the show all of the time and it has certainly morphed into our everyday lives. I have my own sarcasm sign and we have a fridge magnet depicting a golden griffin on a sea of azure.

I went to the barbers today, and my usual barber had gone back to Kurdistan for a holiday. Yes I'm sure you can imagine the rest; no haircut records! I was instantly remembering that episode. I'm sure the writers followed me around to research Sheldon! But I totally get it; my barber knows how I like my hair, my barber knows me, we chat about aspects of our lives, and it's an intimate experience, someone touching your hair. I'm not crazy, my mother didn't need to get me tested!

A couple of weeks ago I was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma--a benign tumor that grows on the auditory nerve.  (Not immediately life threatening, but not a good thing, either.)

 

So, I think it was later that week I was watching BBT and one of the Dr. Stephanie eps came on--the last one, I think--where it starts with her examining Sheldon's ear.  He says he keeps hearing a high-pitched sound in his ear and he's wondering if it's a tumor...

 

At the end of the scene, after Stephanie and Leonard go to bed, Sheldon hums the high pitch and says, "Sure sounds like a tumor pressing on the auditory nerve..."

 

:(   :icon_cry:

I've noticed how being exposed to all the ideas, scientific and others, has re-awakened my interest in all sorts of things. Be it a line of dialogue, a concept, a theory, or just a way of looking at things, it's in my mind. Do you find yourself using terms, or ideas, you wouldn't necessarily have before TBBT?

I was on the phone to HP support line a few weeks ago and watching a big bang theory episode on YouTube when the guy comes on the line and told me his name is:  RAJ

We went to my daughter's show in Missouri. Sitting behind us was the President of the University, where the show was performed (the theatre company was using the university's theatre). They introduced him before the show: President Vartabedian.

My comforting abilities are exactly the same as Sheldon in The Adhesive Duck Deficiency. I always think of him when someone is upset and I don't know what to do.

 

My friends have actively informed me not to attempt "chummliness" or "concern" as it comes off as unsettling, apparently. I don't hug for the same reason. It feels unnatural to me, ergo it translates to body posture and facial expression. Two years of living in Paris has also left me with a deep dislike of ritualised cheek kissing. HOW many times is necessary? Apparently completely arbitrary...

Excuse pedantry, but I was led to believe that in France, the amount of kisses was dependant of the department you were living in(but it could also depend on attractiveness of other person). I've never really thought about germs in health centres, until Sheldon planted the seed. Recently, while attending one, I picked up a weird infection, in my chest. A few days later an ambulance took me to hospital, unable to breathe, or move. That's where I discovered intraveneous morphine. Now I avoid the inappropriately named 'Health centre'!

The other day my wife bumped into something at the house and was holding her arm in pain, and I hugged her and told her "there, there". We both got a good laugh out of it!

When you've pointed out a picture of an elephant to your baby daughter and called it a "tweefedoc" - now we need to teach her the difference between "planko" and "janko"!

 

When you've looked up Pasadena in a travel guide - and it has a train station - I suppose it would do really, probably would have been a major factor in Sheldon deciding to live there.

Sometimes I get to say some of the science stuff from the show.

Or before Christmas when my parents where moaning over having to buy presents for everyone, I told them that it is an ''non optional social convention'' and they looked at me like '' is this actually our daughter?''

They think I'm smart! :D
