    #3512 In anticipation of Thief 4, you want to replay everything and you keep looking at your Mac thinking..."well, it MIGHT work"...

    #3513 You go to your neighbour's house to feed their cat. Just as you're about to head home, you hear footsteps and banging from the next garden over. So naturally, you try to sneak as close as possible to them under the cover of trees without being seen or heard. You then realize just how creepy you're being and spend the next 20 mins trying to sneak back to a place in the garden where you won't look suspicious.

    #3514 You know you've been playing Thief: The Dark Project too long when you notice the 'Copyright 1998' at the bottom of the main menu...and realize how old you've become.

    I was watching a tv show yesterday where someone was sneaking up on someone else and I thought "he should use the blackjack"!

    #3515 You have Contracts class on your second day of law school at 8:45 tomorrow morning, but you're up late playing Thief 2.

    #3516 You spent your whole afternoon doing your Torts reading so you could play Thief tonight.

    I don't know if these are in here anywhere and I'm not going through 63 pages to find out, so anyways... I find lines from the games slipping into my every day speech without deliberate insertion.

    #3517:You are looking for something you can't find, and when you finally do find it the very first words that cross your mind/come out of your mouth are "Here's one!" said ala T2 guards when they are whacking the crap out of you.

    #3518:Along similar lines, when you are playing any other game (mostly first person shooters) and an enemy pisses you off, and you find yourself saying "I'm gonna make you bleed, taffer boy!"

    #3519: When walking by security guards/bouncers you wait around the corner, waiting for them to talk about bear pits.

    #3520: After playing hours of TDS, you slowly walk around your house at night, watching how your shadows change by shape and angle.

    #3551: While in the middle of sneaking through a guard-infested part of an FM, you find yourself shushing your cats, who are making so much noise that you're afraid they'll alert the damned guards!

    #3552 You're the apartment manager and have the key to the roof It's a flat roof, and you like spending your time up there looking for ways across to the next buildings.

    #3553 Instead of traditional swear words, you use things like "Curse the Builder" or "Oh taff this" (probably already mentioned).

    I drink coffee, therefore I am lovable, but twitchy as hell.

    #3554 You continually misread 'gmail' at the top of google as Gamall.

  13. #1563
    #3555 You are sightseeing historical monuments and keep thinking "wow, this would make a great FM!".

    #3556: While in your apartment, you hear someone downstairs playing loud music. You then say "How am I supposed to relax with taffers like that around?"

    #3557: The first thing you say when viewing a house you consider to rent is "This looks like a hard place to sneak through", a second later you come to realize the weird look in the broker's face...

    #3559) You actually manage to log into the TTLG site and notice you've been away since 2006, the "1000 ways to know..." thread is still alive, and is now over 3500 reasons wide...you tell a very unsurprised friend.

    #3560: When you are trying to get off a mountain and don't have any other way, you blackjack a tourist, get his body and jump down with it. When you fall down you wonder why you took damage.

    #3561: While running at the track, you begin jumping to try to continuously build up speed. (T1 style!)

    #3562: While carrying a plate of dinner out, you accidentally and softly bump into someone, but aren't surprised when they're knocked out cold. This is another T1 reference, where you can hold the blackjack in the block position and ever-so-gently touch it to an AI's head for an instant KO. (You don't even have to swing!) For example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo60v5lzHDk

    #3564 Upon watching the 1932 film "Tarzan the Ape Man" you hear the chimpanzee cry and immediately realize it's the same sound byte used for the burricks!

    #3565 You're watching Mastermind (UK quiz programme) and instead of 'answering' Garrick you say Garrett!

    It was wrong anyway.

    #3566 You buy the complete series three times, just because you love the game so much you want to show Eidos that people will still buy it. Well, and because you have gone through three computers and two apartments and can't find the old copies anymore.

    #3567 You buy a new laptop and one of your biggest concerns is "Can it play Thief?"

    #3568 You are confused and also disappointed when playing other games because all surfaces cause the same walking sound.

    #3569 You think about where to put the words Thief or Taffer into your PhD, even if it has nothing got to do with it at all.

    #3570 You have upgraded the desktop and laptop computers too much and Thief just won't run, no matter what you do---and you're going though massive Thief withdrawal to the point of rereading this thread from the beginning
