2426: You phone the bluecoats and claim a woman called marla is stalking you, then hang up because you realise you hate the bluecoats and that marla isn't half bad... hey your face is hideously scarred, beggars (thieves rather) can't be choosers...
2427: You cover your whole house in carpet, the cheapest fluffiest one you can find in IKEA
2428: That's right, even the walls
2429: You get dirt in your one good eye and refuse first aid, but instead ask for the builder's aid
2430: You carve arrows out of everyday items and try to attach pieces of string, moss, and plastic vials of water to cut costs
2431: When you get drunk you tell everyone your name is Benny....
2432: You quote your logictech webcam and claim you modified a scouting orb
2433: You lift up the shirts of the people in front of you in the queue, just to make sure they don't have the key..... Lindsay Lohan is conveniently in the queue
2434: You insist on holding a sword while playing basketball indoors
2435: You accidentally drop your mum's vase and say the word "reload"
2436: You blackjack your cat sleeping in front of the fire, for no discernable reason.
2437: You only bathe in other peoples houses, standing up, and fully dressed in clothes you never change. You SAY you're looking for limescale, but we both know the truth, you're looking for the switch...
2438: When you visit the toilet, you never quite make it, you open the door, realise its just a toilet and turn and leave, upon which your imaginary friend Basso pushes you in because he won't clean the sofa anymore. Nope, it isnt "mead on the rug".....
2439: You refuse to pick up plates without a gold rim
2440: You lock up your trinkets in all manner of cases because you need the extra practice
2441: You make a grammophone order, purchasing 15 fire hazard stickers which you dot around the house after exchanging gas lights for candles
2442: Your "fire damage" premiums rise to double the cost of your rent after you consistently knock at least one candle over while leaning to hang a poster of bafford's daughter. Remember the floor is carpet....
2443: You purchase a 15% share in McTaffreys fine ale with your loot, as the bank with no longer accept your custom.
2444: When visiting a museum, you are confined in the giftshop for the duration of the tour, they say for "health and safety" reasons..... you try and tell them the Taciturn lady is a fake, but they shut the door in your face. Some people are so rude.
2445: You steal that really neat pencil from the giftshop so the day isn't a TOTAL waste.You know the one, with a dinosaur on the end as an eraser you've always wanted but could never quite afford, due to Mr Wicket's perception of the inflation rate....
2446: When you share the details of your conquests with the lads, you quote a girl called Victoria who you met while campaigning to save the rainforest.
2447: You wont attempt to take your daughter from the cot, claiming the cradle won't let her leave
I can't imagine anyone wanting to keep them around lol, i cant stand them, I didn't love fire arrows until I discovered their anti camera purpose, shame they make so much noise! The most annoying thing ever is destroying a camera, and realising the switch was in the next room, so you alerted the guards and wasted a damn good arrow for nothing lol. Apart from the fact cameras kinda ruin the whole element of thief, im glad they were absent in TDS. TTMA just introduced some crazy crap we could have done without IMO. Just played through it again today, I think my fave must be ambush, it at least gives you the chance to explore a city :-)
#2454 You DELIBERATELY ressurect a zombie that has been dead for a week.... oops, I mean a 1000 clues thread.
#2455 You're NOT surprised by the fact that there are 2453 clues already
#2456 Every time you see a cobblestone wall, you try to judge how difficult it would be to climb
#2457 You've been arrested for vandalism because you
a) Started hacking at the plants in the local park
b) Went on a rampage at the local sculpture museum and started smashing statues with your baseball bat....
#2458 You delibaretly replay the most disturbing/exciting cutscenes before going to sleep so you get thief dreams...
#2458 ...and as a result don't get any sleep at all!....
#2459 ...because just before going to finally turn off the computer, your willpower vanished and you started playing Thief.
#2460 You actually counted how many times glowing mushroom tea has been mentioned during the previous 2453 posts
#2461 When the electricity shuts down during a storm, you gasp that the dark age has come...
#2462 ...and hastily do a city tour through the rain, starting with the museum and ending with the local fountain...
#2463...but just before reaching the fountain, you realise you LIKE the dark age and start robbing people
#2464 You're SO into stereotypes that you're shocked to find your girlfriend Vicky doesn't like the plant you gave her as a gift
#2465 After catching a thief breaking into your house at night, you're so dissappointed it isn't Garrett come to date you that you kill him...
#2466 ...but not before you tie him up, drag him to the cellar and spend three hours lecturing him about all the mistakes he made as a thief!
#2467 You add phosphor to your mushroom tea...
#2468 Just for the heck of it, you mention mushrooms despite having written clue #2460

#2472 - 13.3 on Easy.

#2474 - You design countless D&D and AD&D Garrett characters, and theif Missions. You then laugh when the Warrior and Mage get their ass beaten by the Hammerite gaurds, as you sneak past and grab the loot.
#2475 - You skip your wedding to play Deadly Shadows, which just came out.

#2477 - You name your dog " Ol' Benny "
#2478 - You get angry when in Counter-Strike you knife someone very stealthily to kill them, but the extra yelling sound doesnt come.
#2479 - You made your own mod for Morrowind, that was a very large Thief level.
#2480 - You contribute 10 ORIGINAL items to this list, you know because you have read all 2479, 45 pages worth, of facts.
#2481 - When the forums weren't working last night, you saved your work to a notepad document, and reposted the first second you could the next day.
This thread was supposed to be about stuff you actually do, not stuff you'd like to do, stuff that would get you arrested so you don't do it, or stuff that's physically impossible. Frankly, I'm skeptical of some of these claims. In the interest of getting back to reality about our reaction to fiction, and because I just got the pictures back, here is one with photographic evidence.
#2483: You learn metalworking skills so you can make your own loot:
#2484 You are concerned that you haven't posted in a thread that has been around for 7 year and so consider posting just so as not to feel left out...
#2485 You run a search and find you did contribute... twice... seven years and 2429 posts ago!
#2488: You start editing T1/G/2/3 maps and placing tons of enemies EVERYWHERE! (Haunts are my favorite! ) Just so you can watch as the Hammers, Pagans, and Guards/Robots try thier damndest to kill all of them, to no avail, ending up getting pwned horrendously.
#2489: You try to add some of the T1/G/2 things to T3, only to find that either your coding or 3D art skills SUCK!
#2490: You try many times (in vain) to edit the surfaces a rope/vine arrow will stick into so you can shove them into stone walls and have fun leaping about like an angry gorilla on crack.
#2491: You dress up as Viktoria for Halloween. Seriously, I got my friends to do my makeup and draw vines all over me with permanent marker. I may get some form of ink poisoning… but we all must make sacrifices for the things we love.
#2492: You are determined to come up with a better, non mediocre Viktoria costume for next Halloween because this you threw this one together in about two days.
#2504 : You attempt to find 3D modelling and coding software so you can make your OWN Theify game, only to find that all the shit you would need would cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $1000. (And I personally have tried this, to no avail.)
#2505 : You put Thief quotes in your siggy on every forum you sign on to.
#2506 : You pray that Eidos lasts just long enough so you can get a game design buisness underway and buy those pesky Thief rights and do Thief they way it should be done.
#2507 : You start successfully implementing stealth into games that have no inherent stealth capability.
#2508 : You attempt bashing doors down with a weapon in many other games beside Thief, and find that it works in some of the Ultima series, along with a few others..
#2509 : You start having strange Thief-style nightmares in which you are being surrounded by zombies. As they start attacking and you're about to throw your vials of holy water, you suddenly find yourself awake with a once-full glass of water.
