You're a language nerd when you buy this expensive clock featuring 5 preloaded and 18 additional languages: Verbarius Digitless Clock

(I'm not related to that website. I just found the clock to be a cool gadget for a language nerd!) :-)

Oh I love their products! Pity some are ridiculously expensive.
I just use FuzzyTime add-on instead :D I look at it more than at any other "clock" because I switched the default one off.

Cool find! Although sadly it looks like I'll never be able to afford one.

This sentence in particular made my eyes light up:

"It comes preloaded with English, German, Spanish, French, and Russian, but if you connect your Verbarius to the manufacturer's website, you can download over a dozen other languages from Esperanto to Welsh."

(I imagine there must be some apps out there for Mac and PC that do pretty much the same thing. ;) )

Thanks Serpent! I've added this now to my browser and switched to Russian for the time being. :)

When a friend asks you to translate something in an obscure language on the grounds that
you are "goods at languages" so must know it

I was at the DMV today renewing my driver license, and was doing some Cyrillic writing practice while I waited. When I got to the counter, the employee commented how I was learning Russian. I was impressed she knew. So we talked for a few minutes about languages and language learning while she prepared my new license.
