Has this been posted? (This thread is so long it quite possibly has been.) Oh well; it's still both genius and hilarious.

We all need to focus, and we can't learn all the languages we want at the same time. So we have to focus.

So, you know you are a language nerd when your idea of what it means to focus on a small number of target languages at any given time is to narrow it all the way down to about twenty...

You know you're a language nerd when monolingual people complement you and say "wow you speak so many
languages!"
You know you're a TRUE language nerd when you think about this forum and smile and think to yourself "if they
only knew about HTLAL."

Or when someone asks you how many languages you speak and you know that there is no true answer and that if you were to give them something anywhere close to accuracy or the truth they would get bored and stop listening before you were done.

What I generally do in this situation is I just sigh in an annoyed way and say "I don't know." Or "A couple." Or "It depends."

-When the main thing you look forward to about friday night is finally having time to put all the random German words you've acquired over the week into a list to study during the upcoming week.

-When no one at your school is sure what your first language is.

-When you nearly dive across a desk at someone who had the nerve to say that "Gesundheit" was actually just English and just a fancy way of saying bless you.

Guilty.
I'm pretty sure this has been said (yes I read the whole thread) but when you're afraid to let your friends see your iPod because of all the foreign language stuff on it. And when putting your ipod on shuffle results in the following:
