You Know You Spend Too Much Time On A.net When...

Fri Jan 23, 2004 11:39 pm

- you enter your a.net forum password in the morning when attempting to logon to your work computer

- you put <> when you add a link in an email

- you sign a letter with your a.net username.

- you send out a pancake-on-rabbit-head image whenever a stupid email come in your mailbox

-you feel compelled to put a photoid:whatever in every email you write

-you get shown wedding photos and all you think of is "badangle", "badmotiv", etc...

-you are at security screening at the airport and you think "will I get put in HQ"

My A.net password IS my school computer logon.

I kind of like this username, I now use it on AIM and Yahoo as my logon. I need some stupid picture to post like a fudge packing met missing a pitch or a cat in a plastic bag (Maybe a cat in a microwave). And aside from the professional wedding pics most of the ones I have seen are badangle badlight badscan or the other BS reasons they reject every photo submitted for.

Happened to me this morning when playnig on the new quizz :

There aws an airbus cockpit shot, and I had to tell whether it was a 319, 320, 321, 330, 340..., and of course no way of telling, as it showed more the pilot and the outside than the inside.

Then I noticed the photographer name : Joe Pries, and I thought "Oh yeah, he went last year in a jumpseat ride on a VG Airlines A330, so that must be an A330."
After that, I thought, "My, 707, you spend waay too much time on those forums"


I also have a printout of my cat in the bag picture, that I actually use at work when a coworker ask me something stupid.

I would say you know when others spend too much time on A.net when you constantly notice that when one user say UTA_Flyinghigh starrts a thread/makes a post, another user (say 707CMF) ALWAYS and constantly replies to it, and vice versa.

Then two have got to be the happiest couple in the world.

Startvalve is off the hook, as this is now the worst signed by post ever.

-you get shown wedding photos and all you think of is "badangle", "badmotiv", etc...

Whenever I see images of planes etc. I always think of the categories.. because in the database they're above the photos... COLORFUL_PAINT, NOSE, DARK...  Laugh out loud

Maybe you should get one that does more than just shrivel up when you release the valve then.

You get a bunch of WTFs on a school or otherwise outside A.net message board for using terms like Shaftcon or Self-gloss.

You start to think..

"Sure I guess that 15 year old could be a CEO and a retired adventurer"

You start to think that cats in plastic bags and rabbits with pancakes on their heads are perfectly normal.

You start looking at pictures in auto magazines and say "wow if that car was a plane this photo would never make it on A.net"

Your favorite color becomes blue.

You start going to mall parking lots to record the VIN numbers of cars in hopes of find those rare #'s

You know if your user name would fit on your license plate and if it is available
(no 1 digit too many, but Hadapheo is available!,)

If while on a long multi-state drive you know what A.net member livesin each state and city on your route.

You can find Luleå on a world map and can drop Luleå into any conversation.

"you look at coworker's family photos and ask them if they are fakes"

...when you are looking at random photos and trying to guess, before it loads and shows, what airline/aircraft/continent it was taken in (and if you get 3/3, then  Smile)...at 2 or 3 am, lol

You see an interesting plane or airline at work, AF1 or a rare diversion, and think... "I wish I had a camera to get this for Airliners.net."
