They figured out I’m a geek.

by Berck

Apparently I was asking far too many detailed questions about Dash systems in class. I like to know how everything works, but everyone else in the class is busy struggling with the basics. This is nothing new in life.

Yesterday, my instructor spontaneously and with no obvious provocation turned to me and asked, “What’s Avogadro’s number?”

Without missing a beat, or really thinking about it, I spouted out, “6.022 x 10^23”. A split second after I said it, I realized that the question had nothing to do Dash 8 systems, at least in any obvious sense. “Why?” I asked.

“I just knew you’d know it,” he said and laughed. So then several other people in the class got confused and asked what he’d asked me. He just said, “It’s a chemistry thing,” and then they all joined together and laughed at me.

Sometimes things never change.
