Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls.
It's time, yet again, for a pointless, spammy topic.

You know you're obsessed with Defcon when:
You keep clicking on the "Testers Discussion" forums hoping for it to let you in.
You have a randomly changing desktop picture that toggles between Defcon Screenshots and Introversion Backgrounds. (Back from the Uplink Days).
You get into fights about whether Defcon or <insert crappy game here> will be better.
You win those fights.
You are planning on naming you firstborn son "Defcon", "Introversion" or "Chris".
You spend 3 hours a day either: a) Reading these forums or b) looking at Defcon Screenshots.
You post topics such as this.


Add your own ideas to the list, it'll be interesting to see what people come up with.

"Nothing for you so see here, move along." (And that's no joke - just lots of boring people being boring ;))

Spore! Oooh, they'll be close I tell ye :)

You've already nuked all the forumers, in your mind....a thousand times...yet pressing that shiny big red button just doesn't seem to lose its charm and pleasure, time and time again...as they scream in agony for mercy, as their bones set ablaze in fire, as their flesh falls off...


I predict Defcon to get a rating of EVG for EXTREME VIRTUAL GORE.

When walking around outside you scare onlookers by randomly and suddenly looking to the sky and screaming "ITS THE END OF THE WORLD, THE NUKES ARE COMING!"

OR

Every time the news mentions that President Bush could consider using tactical nukes in future conflicts, you giggle with anticipation.

Ok, that last one may be a bit of a stretch...

You really know that you're obsessed with Defcon when...

1. You get a wardrobe of military uniforms and SAC patches from your local Army Navy Surplus store.
2. You encode all your passwords in the military alphabet.
3. You buy that Jap button thingy
4. You fly 'recon' missions over Russia in FS2004
5. You put a sign on your door that reads "Strategic Air Command War Room. Authorized Personel Only."
