When you mock all your friends for buying Blu-Ray players, until you realize that Blu-Ray discs can have many,
many, audio tracks, and almost unlimited subtitles... Then you wonder how you were ever able to live without a
copy of "Groundhog Day" with English, French, and Portuguese dubbing, and subtitles in: English, French, Korean,
Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Thai, Indonesian, Dutch, and Arabic!

P.S. There is something surreal about watching "Groundhog Day" every day, but in different languages.

When finding an amazing language mathom, a book of 100 tricks to do with a set of magic items you don't have but written in Dutch, French, German, English, Swedish, Danish, and Italian, at an estate sale is the official beginning of Spring Break in your mind. Even better is that the 4 books we bought cost $2.16 all together.

when you're packing for the weekend and can not make up your mind about which books you should carry up with you,
so you eventually settle on the Persian Assimil, a Yiddish newspaper and a copy of Cicero's letters.
Of course, it's your friend's birthday and you're not supposed to have any free time to read but, eh, one never knows...


Yep guilty of this I do love Cicero's letters

when you watch the whole series of Star Trek Deep Space Nine in German even though you can't speak it because you wanted to know if they would speak Klingon in a German accent

When you just took a test in a different language about a still different country were
this language is not the native language.

...when you stop typing in order to eavesdrop on the guys whispering in Romanian near you in the library, and they notice your sudden silence and move away. Foiled again!

You know you're a language nerd when:

your parents talk to you about moving this summer, and you immediately suggest emigrating to Germany, or
moving to towns where you know that there are speakers of your target languages.

your friend opens your book bag to get your graphing calculator, and your German grammar book, Russian
grammar book, Polish coursebook, reading material in German, Persian coursebook, and Swahili phrasebook all
come tumbling out. You know you're a huge language nerd if you nearly start crying because your materials
are more important to you than anything else you own.

Not just that, but there are fewer (and thus larger) regions as well. For example, the US, Japan, and South Korea are in separate DVD regions (1, 2, and 3, respectively) but the same Blu-ray Region (A).

I must admit that the region differences and language counts have recently tempted me to invest in Blu-ray when I would otherwise have no real interest in doing so.
