That is true. I can read German easier than what I can understand when someone speaks it or when I try to speak German.

I guess you've heard the joke about the German chick who got grabbed by 12 serious Dutchmen (afrikaaners).

She shouted "Nein, Nien"

So 3 left!!

...you count snakes instead of sheep when trying to fall asleep
...you know more about the anatomy of rats and mice than you ever wanted to
...you know not to hold a rat by the end of its tail
....you have more crickets in the skirting boards ofyour house than all your friends put together
....you plan your house around how many terrariums you can fit in it
....your family never asks what you want for a birthday present
....you put a 2% UV light bulb in the bedroom

If u are constantly broke cause your barely saving for that special add that comes up once in a year.
If you can catch a snake and still release it.
If everyday is a learning curve and you would rather stare at your specimens than sleep at night.
If there are more mice in your fridge than food.
If you know little of the world, but stax about its climates.

If u know when not to mess with it !

You might be a herper if you go on holiday and you come back with your car looking like this.

Got it in one Boadicea! *snigger*

Another way you can tell if you are a hopeless herper, is if you bring that beautiful specimen you caught to work with you to show your friends, and are confused when you cause a riot!

You hear someone describing their new high-resolution 20" monitor and wonder if it's Australian or Indonesian.
===
Your snakes spend more time in your bathtub than you do!
===
Your house was raided by the police after a tipoff from the electric company suspecting you of growing pot.
===
You and a friend are overheard talking about your babies & someone asks about them, and you reply "yeah, my 'baby' is 15' long & weighs around 125 pounds!!!"
===
Your best friend's cat died & you wonder if you can have the body.
===
You tell yourself you don't look stupid while people are watching you flip rotted boards hunting for snakes on the side of the road.
===
You sex fruit flies when you're at a grocery store.
===
You get a sunburn and worry that your shed isn't coming off in one piece.
===
You've ever told your apartment manager that you'll be able to pay rent after the eggs hatch .
===
Your girlfriend tells you to choose between her & the snakes, and not only do you tell her you'll miss her, but calculate how many shoebox racks will fit in her half of the closet.

and now for my favourite...You spend countless hours inventing stupid things like this.

You have a in depth knowledge of every hardware store, electrical equipment outlet, petshop and veterinary practice in a 100km radius of your house, and which one sells what cheapest! :roll:
