...If you're ever read the back of "Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface Cleaner" and nearly pissed yourself at what that company is getting away with....Then you proceed to offer to make the next bottle up "on the house."

...You buy large quantities of aspirin, not because you have a headache or want to avoid heart attacks, but because you want to experiment with it as a ligand and decompose it into salicylic acid for further experiments.

...Your mother has purchased you a lab coat in a failed attempt to keep you from dissolving your entire wardrobe.

...You have ever asked for a condenser for your birthday....ground glass joints of course.

...You can pronounce and explain the function of most of the ingredients on the back of an average shampoo bottle (okay, the ones you can't explain the function of are just marketing tools and you recognize them as such).

When... someone asks you how much sauce they should add to the mix, and you tell them - about 5 mils. hehe. When any measurements you make are in the SI system.

....you ACTUALLY laugh at the PERFECT contraceptive joke made by Borek (no offense), or better yet, critique it for its structure. (see below)

"For men. This is no fun. Derivatives of nitrosobenzene show such properties.
But what about toxicity?" http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=25430.0

You see the word 'periodic' and it is an iodine compound.

You see the word 'unionised' and it has nothing to do with labour unions.

You recite the whole periodic table and nobody asks 'How do we know you got it right?'

When someone asks for a calculator, you whip out the trusty old TI-89, and think it's perfectly normal whilst everyone's go their mouths agape.
