- You singlehandedly defeated the Colossus' entire fighter complement using nothing but an escape pod.
- Your kill score is so grotesque that the AI often tries to avoid you entirely.
- You rewrote an entire alternate campaign starting from "Mystery of the Trinity", because you got tired of losing the mission from holding the Shivans off for 15 minutes
- On one occasion, the Sathanas actually turned tail and ran when you began your attack run in "Bearbaiting".
- The last time you played "A Lion at the Door", the Shivans called off their invasion, shut down the Knossos, and refused to let you progress any further until you got a life.
- When the game explodes to the sheer awesomeness of your flying

- When the game crashes since your score is too big for that tiny variable to hold.

- When Petrarch promotes you to admiral as soon as the game starts
- When you think of urine as a Vasudan drink.
- When you feel the urge to compile the segmented game music from both games and make your very own FreeSpace soundtrack (like this).
-Send e-mails to game companies telling them the backstory of Freespace and ask for them to make Freespace3

-You are secretely building a GTF Erinyes in your backyard.

-You own a high-powered telescope and are always looking for subspace portal openings in the sky

-Every time you look at the sun and see a spec or two, you freak out, thinking Sathanas' are gathering around it.

-You own all the Freespace soundtracks on your ipod/mp3

-You own the most high-tech joystick in the world JUST to play Freespace 2

-You think realistic sims like IL2 Sturmovik are crap

-When you send fan-mail to Robert Loggia not because of his movies, but because of his inspiring voice

-When you hope its the Vasudans that humanity makes first contact with, and not shivans

-When you are still playing Freespace.
- When you imagine Robert Loggia, dressed in GTVA livery, jumping on a large keyboard in the Aquitaine's hangar.
- When you imitate Admiral Wolf, Admiral Shima, Admiral Petrarch, or Admiral Khafre's voice every time you see a Command brief.
 - When you ask your granddad what Vasuda Prime looked like
- When you get an SMS from Command.
- When you save your home number as "GTD Aquataine Flight Deck"
- Your brothers as Aquarius 1 thru 4
- Your parents as Command

- When you think of Uni lessons as Command Briefings;

- When you watch sci-fi shows and laugh at the ridicously small dimensions of their ships compared to massive FS ones;

- When you fill your MSN sound archive with FreeSpace sounds and voices;

- When you watch Dragon Ball and wonder if FreeSpace beams are capable, at least, of vaporizing Dragon Ball characters' clothes(their beams can destroy planets but aren't effective against clothes);

- When you think it takes more than 5 kills to become an Ace;

- When you wish you have an incorporated subspace drive that allows you to escape from embarassing situations;

- When you make love with your girlfriend or wife with continuous references to beam cannons and "DIVE! DIVE! DIVE! [...]";

- When you think that mythological beasts and evil deities are named after Shivan ships;
- When you can get drunk and still play FreeSpace 2 without dying.
- When your favourite weapon in Unreal Tournament is the pulse gun (right hand mouse button). (it is a green beam)
- When a situation arises, whatever it may be, you're like "Command, we have a situation here!"
- When you see a bully coming your way and think, "Reading hostile indicators."
- When you say something highly awkward in a conversation, realise it and think "Get me outta here, Command!"
- When you think that getting hit by an SJ Sathanas is the same as getting slapped in the face.
- When you set "Incoming jump signature! Hostile configuration!" as call sound on your mobile phone
- When you start getting pissed off about people trying to add non-canon things into the canon FS2 library of encyclopaedia...
- When you don't know what's canon anymore and just play the game.
- When you use Photoshop and different Channels and automatically group custom Alpha Channels into "Alpha Wing".
- When you think of onion rings as "small, edible PVI Karnaks".
- When you always drive your vehicle at 25 m/s (90 km/h).
- When you are immune to motion sickness.
- When upon hearing the news that HLP is shutting down and FS3 will never be made, you commit suicide, for there is truly no point in living anymore in this Hell.
- When you're certain that afterlife holds a FS3 DVD. And if it turns out it doesn't, you'll unkill yourself out of protest.

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Here's some real ones:

-You've ever used the phrase "I've got a Squadwar match" on a vacation request form
-There is a collection of joysticks in your garage all with the back and to the left direction broke. 
-You install a beer fridge under your desk to allow for more flight time
-You know someone who buys an airplane and everyone refers to it as an Ursa 
-You've had detailed conversations about FS2 in a bar to someone that doesn't own a computer
-You've spent over $100 a month on better internet just to get an edge in multi.
-You simultaneously develop trigger finger and carpel tunnel

Uh-oh, not again. Here I go:

- When a vehicle is about to enter a highway beyond 60 and you think "Helm, engage subspace drive.";
- When you look at a picture of someone's head and think (or even say) (with your index fingers pointed) "bup bup, bup bup, bup bup bup";
- When you think of your arm as a beam;
- When you think that you can fire Kaysers and Subachs by flicking your thumb and middle/index fingers;
- When you feel as if you have a HUD in your field of view;
- When you try to speak Vasudan;
- When you start thinking that your families and friends have a green square border around them, marking them as friendly;
- When you think that meeting your girlfriend on a night out is a primary objective;
- When you start thinking that Goober5000 is a terrorist in Deus Ex Machina;
- When you start to like the number 25;
- When you are worried that there is a Shivan in your bedroom;
- When you THINK that you are a Shivan;
- When you are worried that there is a supernova imminent.

I exhibit all of the above to some degree. ;)

I recall waking up one night and the combination of a chair and the fan on it, in the dark, looked uncannily like a Shivan...

-You dream about lag causing a supernova in Jita (in EVE) and Command popping up with an announcement to jump out.
-You put something very similar to this in the FS Paint thread.

I remember waking up to take a leak in the middle of the night, looking over to the end of the bathroom and for a split second seeing what looked like a Shivan staring back at me... then when i went to sleep i woke up again and couldve sworn i saw a Marine being Beamed by a Shivan

keep in mind i was around 8 yrs old when this happened

See, 3 days ago, late in the evening, just as I finished playing FS, I had to go close a window in another room. There was a big storm, I was alone and it was dark. In the other room, I heard a sound that was awfully like the shivan "voice". Turns out it was just the curtains/window cover going up and down cause of the wind, thus making the noise of the shivans.
