You find resistors in the dryer lint trap..

You have 2,000 bulbs and 50 batteries, but not one working Flashlight..

You wife finds small round silver balls in the bathroom sink and thinks her fillings are coming out, rather than you have been wetting your soldering iron sponge. (true)

Or when you have had to apologize to your wife for burning a hole in the dining room tablecloth (carpet, family pet, etc) with said soldering iron..

Your wife gave you a component/part and said "I don't know what it is but I know it's yours. You still want it? I found it in the kitchen." (true) It was a 22pF cap. Just that you all know, I have 1000 22pF, 1000 100nF and will have 1000 tactile switches :)

What if you're a flashlight geek?

Okay, could still be true! :)

I wouldn't call myself a flashlight geek, but it's true that anywhere in my apartment, I'm within about 8' of at least one. But I don't mod them. (Or haven't yet)
