you know you’re in camberville…

When you’re going for a family stroll and you see a big hardcover book resting on a stone pillar on the sidewalk and when you approach said book it turns out to be Cryptonomicon.

Bonus:  When one morning you notice that your husband, still in his pajamas, is wearing a lanyard around his neck…and you realize that connected to the lanyard is a USB drive.

Bonus bonus:  When you’re watching the cataclysmic documentary The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia and some Boone County person is all “Our town isn’t that bad, we had this one kid who went on to MIT!  I mean, MIT!” and your first thought is, “If I were to leave my home right now and walk in a straight line for ten minutes, at least one third of the young people I would encounter on the way would be MIT grads, and many of them would be idiots.”

    I was in awe of MIT.

    …until I started working with MIT grads who – as you pt out – contain a VERY noticeable share of idiots.
