    Haha, yeah, I started reading it and after 1000 and the sheer number of so many more remaining pages I just gave up reading all of them and just glanced over them quickly.

    I know right? I also find myself sometimes wondering if I would fit in, when I see one.

    #3609: On a still day you walk in and out of all the doors to a building trying to get the outside wind noises to "trigger".

    #3610: When you use your key on all the doors to your house it disappears.

    #3611: When you sneak into a building late at night you sometimes leave doors open because you don't think anyone will notice them.

    #3612: Whenever you walk by a holy water font in a church you imagine frobbing it and hearing the holy-water sound.

    #3625: You always crouch to get off of a ladder.

    #3626: You have a long medical history of injuries resulting from ladder falls.

    #3627: Occasionally when you see a structure that goes to your chest-height you smile wryly as you consider mantling it. When you try to mantle it and fail people look at you strangely and you walk away with your head bowed, red with shame.

    #3628: You can recite the bear-pits conversation on command. In fact, at every get together a friend or family-member begs you to do it.

    #3629: You plan on naming all your kids after Thief characters, but then realize because you spend so much time playing Thief you're never going to have any kids (or get married...or go on a date...or have a life...).

    #3631: You played Thief instead of celebrating Independence Day.

    #3632: Actually, you celebrated Independence Day in Thief using mines, fire arrows and least - but not last - a Sunburst Device. You also used all of your water and gas arrows for nice fireworks by shooting them at the skybox.

    #3633: When you are playing the Cragscleft Prison mission you notice a possible place to climb out of the mines (right after entering the mines in the first room - a bright spot to the left). So you collect all the crates in the mines, stack them up high and you notice there is really a well - lit rightangular room up there. But all of a sudden your mission fails because you had to go through the mines, not over.

    You wonder if the mission wouldn't fail if you make your way up to the prison, letting said objective tick off and head back to the mines...

    #3634: You are able to enter the Alarus Extension without additional help. Yes, it is possible! First, mantle onto the wooden beam, jump to the broken stone ceiling, duck and jump from ducked position to the hole into the wall. Congratulations, you did it! Now jump down the pit! Sadly, there isn't much there...

    #3635: When you smuggle a bow into the police academy. After firing guns (and missing horribly on your first attempt - yes, it is really hard!) you suddenly take out your bow in frustration. Now your aim is extraordinary well. You somehow make it to a SWAT - team precision shooter because of your incredible shooting abilities and you will be remembered in history as the SWAT - guy who prefered the bow over the rifle.

    #3636: No one of the other cops registered you were carrying a bow and a quiver full of arrows all the time until you pulled it out at the shooting gallery.

    #3637 When you get a letter telling you you're fired because no one ever see's you at work, despite everything getting done and your timecards saying you were there

    I have the opposite issue.

    #3638. When you see a door that's been left open, and you want to walk over to it and close it to help performance and just in case somebody walks by.

    You go to pick up an apple off a table but find yourself taking a drink of the coffee you are holding instead.

    #3649: You force your current husband to undergo an operation to look more like Garrett, but the operation goes terribly wrong and your husband dies on the table, so you instead marry a life-sized cut-out of Garrett. When your parents hear what you have done, they denounce you as their daughter and join a Black Metal sex-cult. Your kids become corporate lawyers hired by ATLUS just to spite you, and your dog starts cross-dressing as a cat. None of this concerns you, though.

    Um, I just wanted to say that I still look for the places with the best shadows when I'm out and about.
