Stellar Types

So I've been living and breathing astronomy for four whole days now, and it's producing conversations like this:

ME: I've been observing the Wal-Mart parking lot, and I've noted twelve Class O supergiant vehicles, fifteen Class B giant vehicles, eight Class G vehicles, and nine Class M dwarf vehicles.

CARRIE: What conclusion do you derive from your observations?

ME: Big pickup trucks and Wal-Mart have a powerful mutual attraction.

True conversation I had with a cosmologist at one point in time.

Me: Astronomers like to take pictures of stars. Am I right?

Cosmologist: Yes.

Me: Stars are very far away.

Cosmologist: That is correct.

Me: What kind of flash do they use?

Cosmologist: ......

Another true conversation.

Me: some random snarky comment that I do not remember.

Random drunk redneck: You some kind of smart alec or something?

Me: genius alec.

Random drunk redneck: Excuse me, what did you say?

Me: I said genius alec. One of the highest IQ's in recorded history.

Random drunk redneck: ????????

It is a testament to my super human reflexes and my martial arts instructors patents that I continue to live.
