    I'm lucky because I've worked almost my entire life in electronics and am familiar with the bottom and the top. I never trusted or liked the upper class snobs...they are a different breed. I've always felt comfortable with the worker types. Since I was raised at the bottom, maybe that is where I am naturally most comfortable. Humble beginnings.

    Most hams I think are from the practical logical part of the scale and maybe that is why I am so comfortable with most of them? Down to earth people...mostly. :)

    I admit, it does have one of the best lines in all of moviedom.
    The efficiency experts come in and ask Milton... What is it that you, uh...(very long pause)...do? Classic....and disturbingly profound. :)

    1. I will accept proudly the title of "nerd" but I prefer "intellectual badass." I LIKE being a nerd and claim it. The only other term you list that's ok might be "brainiac."

    You seem to have been living under a rock or in a cave, or at least know some very different people than I do. Nerd and Geek are the new cool.

    2. Unfortunately, the funny AND sad thing about Office Space is that it's not really that much of a farce. It's very close to reality.

    I heard somewhere that the harder it is to answer that, the more secure your job is.

    Also have to recommend The IT Crowd. I think we watched it on Hulu or Netflix or something.

    FYI, you can definitely find The IT Crowd on Netflix.
