You know you're a geek when...

The auto repair place finally got ahold of me today, and the final breakdown (pun intended) of the damage to my car was presented. Basically, other than a few miscellaneous engine issues, the main problem was a broken camshaft. Now I know nothing about cars, but I know what a camshaft is. Why?

Well, that would be because I've watched entirely too much Stargate, and Cameron Mitchell's (Ben Browder) call sign was 'Shaft' in the Air Force. Cam 'Shaft' Mitchell as in camshaft.

I did not discuss this amusing tidbit with the mechanics.

Now. All I need to do is find a sunken Spanish galleon, a leprechaun with a bucket, or the lost city of El Dorado, and I can pay the nice auto folks the $2,100-2,800 it's going to cost to fix said camshaft.
