    You know you play too much StarCraft when...

    - You call your house your "Nexus."
    - You play basketball and ask your friends if the game is melee or UMS.
    - You are poor and you tell your dad to harvest more minerals.
    - You realize that you're broke and ask your parents to borrow some minerals.
    - You decide to blow yourself up as a suicide bomber and shout "here's for the Swarm!"
    - You inject steroids into your arm on the way home to get there faster.
    - You pretend that a box is an SCV and you sit in it and pick your nose.
    - You send siblings out to scout neighbors' yards.
    - Your solution for Iraq is "Battlecruisers. Mass Battlecruisers."
    - Your only fear when massing Battlecruisers against Iraq is that they may have cloaked Wraiths waiting.
    - You sit in a traffic jam and wonder if your car has a Siege mode.
    - Laser pointers are now weapons of mass destruction - avoid them at all costs.
    - The Bunsen burner in chemistry looks deliciously inviting as a splash damage weapon.
    - You poke people repeatedly. Maybe they'll say something funny.
    - You complain about the inefficiency of our military. Even on slow days, it only took you half an hour to amass a fleet and annihilate your opponent.
    - You don't believe in the concept of overpopulation. Why not just build more supply depots?
    - Missile turrets are a crucial part to any home security system. Bunkers too. Hell, a few Siege Tanks here and there wouldn't hurt.
    - You call your school bully a Dragoon.
    - You start calling rich people "n00bs" and tell them to play on real maps.
    - You walk by a construction site and wonder why they just don't warp everything in.
    - You think strategically placing Arbiters around your town/city so they can recall people wherever they want is a really good idea.
    - You mistake your grandmother for an Infested Kerrigan.
    - You mistake Democrats for UED leaders.
    - You think babies come from Gateways.
    - Your friend is a Hydralisk. No matter what anyone else says, he's a Hydralisk.
    - You tell people to go somewhere and you start repeatedly "clicking" your finger.
    - You try to Optical Flare your dog.
    - You answer the phone with "You want a piece of me boy?!"
    - You know everyone on Battle.net. Everyone on Battle.net knows you.
    - You give people your Battle.net username instead of your phone number.
    - You go by your Battle.net alias.
    - You know, by heart, how many hits it will take a marine to destroy a Battlecrusier.
    - You can beat every Terran campaign mission with 4 marines and an SCV.
    - You went as a Zealot for Halloween.
    - You use the wall in your room as a board for designing new strategies.
    - You can draw any custom map someone tells you to draw.
    - You have been to every single StarCraft site searching for the best possible strategy.
    - You have a small shrine dedicated to your SC CD case.
    - You change religions. You are now part of the Khalai.
    - You name your son Fenix.
    - You have a meeting every week with your friends so you can come up with new strategies.
    - The doctor injects the flu shot into you, you sigh relaxingly and say "ah, that's the stuff."
    - You force your mom to call the school bus a "Shuttle"
    - You see your friend in a fight and you shout "We must join our bretheren in battle!"
    - You worry about walking through narrow places because there might be burrowed lurkers.
    - You're sleeping with your girl and accidently scream "Kerrigan" instead of her name.
    - You cry yourself to sleep because your SC CD is missing.
    - You actually understand all of the above jokes.

    Does this mean I play too much SC? You bet it does!

    I would've asked him if he thought I was an SCV or something.

    Nah, I think it's some form of adrenaline. Think about it, high adrenalin concentration in your blood and muscles can be harmful, hence the HP reduction.

    And I still play Starcraft every weekend with my friends. It never gets old!

    When you think a elepant is a Ultralisk.

    When you think a cat is a Ultralisk.

    When you think a probe is a mouse.

    When you think a reaver is a worm.

    When you think a dragoon is a spider.

    When you think a hydralisk is a hampser.


    Mostly from the Sims.
