Hey! I get that all the time when I'm about to alight from an MRT train. :D

In fact, I occasionally do this (nonsensical but nonetheless FS-esque) running dialogue in my head:

"The train is approaching the designated coordinates. Ready the fusion drives and prepare for departure."
"Train is losing velocity in accordance to station. Arm missiles."
"Train has stopped. Doors will open in a moment. Prepare to engage afterburners."
"Doors opening. Go!"
"What is the ETA of the next bus? Engage full burners!"
"Oh ****! That's my capship! Full burn! FULL...BURN!"

:nervous:

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

On a similar note, i've been spending a bit of time Fredding lately and have developed the annoying habit of thinking in sexp. Ie when-hunger=>60% then-eat>burger

I sometimes do similar, Androgeos. As well as just thinking about FreeSpace 2 stuff a fair few times, and thinking up possible missions in my head.

Here's another:
- When you fantasize about owning FreeSpace ships.

I'm terribly guilty of this. I really want an SF Mara (Terrans) with time-travel capabilities.

I'm sure everyone who actively posts on HLP is guilty of that. We could start a thread on this. ;)

I was thinking more GTF Paris Hilton with sleep on demand capability

You know when etc yadda yadda...........

When you feel apathetic when you even consider starting the launcher, and you need a fortnight to recharge the appreciation battery.

You know you played too much FS2 when, when on the road, you think of cars as fighters, mini-vans as bombers, micro-buses as cruisers, buses as corvettes, trucks as destroyers and those huge trucks as juggernauts.

When you still visit the FS forums, but no longer play FSO. Like me. My computer is broken, and can't play games.  :(

My brother was playing Star Wars:BF2 today, then I heard a rebel go 'Dive, dive, dive!' and I immediately yelled out, "Hit your burners, pilot!"

When you write this damn thing.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

When you automatically translate Commander Vincey's lament on the loss of the GTA Lucidity into...a refrigerator.

Quote from: Commander Vincey from Battle of the Wilderness
The destruction of the AWACS reveals a critical flaw. Though the AWACS improved our sensor capabilities, its vulnerability limits the potential of the craft in combat scenarios. On the other hand, your unit's failure to protect the AWACS indicates that more effective leadership may be required here.

Quote from: Myself
The leak in the refrigerator reveals a critical flaw. Though the refrigerator improved our storage capabilities, its obsolescence limits the potential of freezing on the field. On the other hand, your father's failure to check the obsolescence of the refrigerator indicates that better shopping sense may be required here.
