The best of ?"1000 Clues that you play Freespace too much"
i searched through the entire 6 page thread and picked out the best ones. the last two are true stories. Enjoy!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


You wonder where your dog is in the house so you get within 150 meters and try to scan.

You have a real collection of headz in your refrigerator.

You refer to all the organs of your body as subsystems.

You walk into your best friends room and see him feeding his fish - you try to walk out with the fish, all the time argueing that you have some tan skinned friends who wuv them more.

Your turn on your sprinkler system to defend you house.

You don't tell the cops anything becuase you rights are protected under BETAC.

You kill a government official you took hostage, because the negotiators refused to give you unfettered access to the Sirius Jump Node.

When a tunnel collapses you suggest building a Knossos to re-open it.

When someone throws a snowball at your car, you instinctively reach for the 'equalize shields' button.

You wonder how many beam cannons the ISS is gonna have.

When you blow a tire, you try to call in a support ship.

You've attempted to recharge your Kayser in AC/DC outlets and have drained the world's power three times

When you drive a slow car, you're always looking for the button to send more power to the engines

You don't go home from work until you receive the order to return to base

You can pronounce Hatshephut properly (or even spell it!)

You tell the man with the 'end is near' sign he's wrong because the Lucifer hasn't reached Delta Serpentis yet.

When writing a report on Egyptian mythology, you refer to Ra as a "Vasudan escape pod"...
...and proceed to detail its technical schematics.

You hum the briefing music in business meetings.

You're still the only person the police have seen sweep a flashlight beam across the other guys car in a case of "Road Rage".

Co-workers scramble when you angrily make a beam warm-up noise, they know about the laser pointer.

"Like Vasuda Prime" shows up in your cursing.

-You see a recticle when you close your eyes

you refer to you parents and siblings as Alpha2, Alpha3 and Alpha 4

you refer to your friends as Delta 1-4

You have nightmares wherein you never seem to be able to make it to the jump node before Capella goes supernova

You've played FS and FS2 so much that the computer hardware stores keep a special stock of replacement CD ROM drives just for you

-You get within 150 meters of your Christmas and birthday presents to scan them
-The contents are indeterminate
-You don't open them in fear of a bomb

When you're in a car accident you either shout "Mayday! Mayday!" or "Losing systems help me out

You end up in court for asking around for space-crack, whistle and expect your pet Shivan named Carl to show up and eat the judge

you wonder about how you are on Earth even though the subspace node collapsed.

You start all your conversations, "To the Officers and Crew....."

You "scan" your junk mail before destroying it for bonus points.

Your caller i.d. is interfaced with your computer to identify callers' configuration as "Hostile" or "Friendly".

You can fly the first twenty missions by sound alone.

When there is only 15 minutes left to do a very hard test at school, you tell your friends: That was a little too close! We gotta wait 15 minutes to change our shorts!

If a supernova is ever mentioned on the TV, you jump up and scream "THE SHIVANS ARE COMING! WE'VE GOT TO CLOSE THE PORTAL!!" to everyone else in the room, then dial C-O-M-M-A-N-D on the phone.

If you hit a friend of yours, a voice echoes in your head: All units terminate the traitor.

Whenever you try something new, you say, "Tastes like Headz!"

Whenever you here "Recovery Craft" on TV you scream "send FIGHTERS!"

For years, people have been studying your odd behavior while driving, such as the fact you always use a keyboard to drive and had a CB radio installed, with which you always shout out random things.


"In Swedish-class, when the teacher asked what roman, Greek, Hindu, and Egyptian gods we knew about... Hehe! 'Um... What's that lame-*** Vasudan fighter called again... Anubis! Yep! Anubis!'"

"I was at the IMAX at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and I actually held up my FS2 CD's and a couple of $20 bills, and asked if they could format FS2 to play in 3D on the IMAX. The guy stared at me, then at my CD's, then at the 20 dollar bills in my hand, then back at me, and I said 'Well?' He calls security. It was hilarious!"

I think I might kill to be able to play a space sim on an Imax screen.

FUNNY STUFF!

I think one would know theyed played too much FS when they freak out during a viewing of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and discover the Thugees worshiping Shiva!!

About playing on a IMAX theater, I'd kill too!! Hell, if pixels were as big as me, I'd just go to the back of the theater! Man think about it! I'd stay in there nonstop! Trust me, playing FS2 on the big screen changes a man. Played FS2 on a digital projector, and MAN... It brought tears to my eyes. So I think playing it at an IMAX theater would be equivelant to a religeous/biblical experience!

Just get everyone here to donate a computer, hook 'em together to form an incredibly high-speed one, have all the modellers on the board completely model every fighter (no textures allowed, only colors...meaning every little piece MUST be 3D), create a program to utilize the models, re-create the FS and FS2 campaigns on it...and play it in the iMax theater in a fully-rendered cockpit. If it slopes (the one I went to did, dunno about others) then the program should take this into account. Oh no, I've done it againn...thalmkeed too much bout Freeespaceeeeeeee...must run...

Another read, another laugh..ah...  
-After a round of looking at Christmas lights, you spot something suspicious...a group of santa heads hanging on a neighbor's house. When you realize you've never seen the neighbors in person, you come to the logical conclusion; they aren't heads, they're HEADZ, and the "people" are actually HOL operatives! You attempt to warn those in the neighborhood, but uniformed men try to stop you. Fortunately, you still have the "cyanide capsule" from your days in the SOC, and you eat it and then pass out. You awake some time later in a hospital, after doctors manage to dislodge the dog food in your throat.
