...each day you post the new distance you are sitting from your display (and whether you can see the SDE).

...you're not aware there are new shows starting soon, because you're too busy "Discovering" when you're not posting.

...you saw none of the touchdowns last weekend, because you were adjusting colors.

When you watch Star Wars and see a blue light saber you think of Blu-ray. And when you see a red light saber you think of HD-DVD (and the evil empire).

When a great episode of your favorite show is over, you run upstairs to the computer to see what everybody else thought about it.

I've done that at school, while out with friends in the bar, at a movie theater, and even while stopped at a red light.

- You gauge a woman's attractiveness with a bit-meter.
- Your wife tells you she's "in the mood" and you say, "Not tonight. I'm watching Hairspray."
- You plug your laptop into your TV so you can surf AVS at 1080p.
- You're unhappy with the pixelated look of the forum smileys.

You know your an AVserrrrr when..

you see the RS2 rumors, then immediately have panic attacks about your RS1 purchase.

You understand the importance of fruit pizza.

You have Avsforum as your home page on every PC/Mac

You Have played the whose theater this is game.

You can state LFE range of various movies.

Receive random requests from people you have never met to stop by.

All of these are good things just so you know...

I found out I was addicted as soon as my wife pointed out that every conversation at supper I had with her or our 6 year old daughter always had me saying somewhere along the line " Well you know what this guy on the forums wrote today......"

I needed help and maybe still do.

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.
