Brainy Chats and UFC

Sometimes I have to wonder what a random observer would think about how Aaron and I work. Earlier today, we had one of those really geeky conversations turned geekout. We caught The Odyssey on SciFi and then started talking about the difference in order from the book and this lead to one of our odd quizzes where we try to stump the other on anything regarding the book. We often do this, particularly when it comes to mythology. This conversation lasted a while. Later on we got into this pattern while watching X-Men (Soooo can't wait for Wolverine!) He usually stumps me here, because I didn't have my own comics, I just borrowed any issue I could from the boys in my classes, so there are some holes in my X-Men knowledge.

Mind you, these kinds of geekout sessions are all in good fun and we usually end up impressed when the other knows or remembers some vague point. But my questions is, is this normal behavior? Not that we really care, but do other people debate their significant other for sport or try to test their knowledge like this?

But yeah, you'd think Aaron and I were intellectual elitists, then we turn around and get really excited about watching the Brits fighting in the UFC!

I have to say, I don't know what it is about them, but the Brits just look a bit nuttier than the American or Latin American MMA fighters. I love it. I just wish they would air more of the old school UFC fights. The ones that took place before all the rules were set up. Holy cow were those bouts brutal.

Well, at least now I know we're not the only odd ducks in town. :)
