When you become very upset upon finding out that Japanese-Chinese Cookbook isn't a bilingual text, but rather a compilation of Japanese and Chinese recipes. I should have known since the title is in English.

When you're on a two day student booze cruise with your buddies to celebrate high school being over, and it brings you great joy to notice upon reading the multilingual texts on the counter of the tax free shop that the Russian preposition без is indeed used with the genitive.

You know you're a language nerd when you get just as excited upon receiving new course books in Italian and
Portuguese as other teens get excited over the latest fashion trend, the hottest celebrity, or the newest video game!

...when you need to catalogue all the recordings and songs you've downloaded - many of which you haven't got round to looking at - but you know for certain that at some point in time that Hungarian weather forecast from 1993 will come in useful!

...when you spend 19 months searching '401 Czech verbs' in the hope that someone someday will sell it at a reasonable price (it's extortionate in UK bookshops). You eventually find it on ebay for 2.36 euros/$3.23 and you then spend 2 hours composing an email in Czech (a language you don't yet speak) to thank the seller for making your life complete!

...when you're so thrilled to find a bilingual kids' book ("Chaucer's First Winter"/"El primer invierno de Chaucer") in your Cheerios box that you have to sit right down and read the whole thing in both languages, despite the fact that
A) you're not studying Spanish and don't plan to anytime soon, and
B) you have a cup of tea over-brewing and cereal getting soggy in milk.
This has gotta come first.

I have been listening to Latin videos on Youtube for an hour or so, more specifically a series about humanism, spoken by 'Aloisius Miraglia' and uploaded by 'Baeticus' (no.1 here). On my TV there is a program about bluidy murder cases with Danish subtitles - not something I find very interesting. What drove me to this thread was that I suddenly realized that each time I looked at the TV I found myself translating the Danish subtitles into Pig Latin...
