You know you are addicted to AVS Forum if... - Page 2

post #31 of 257
You think "We just want to network and interact with you" was funnier than the clown wearing an afro wig at the AVS party.


At least I think that was a wig...

when you tell your wife that you have to see what Lee and Rdjam are saying and she has that look of "Who the hell is that"? on her face

I think the fact that I get this joke makes me an AVS forum addict.

Oh man. These are so funny. If they ask me back next year, I am going to ask you all for help .

We are guilty of so many of these things it is not even funny. It is a good reminder to participate in real life from time to time!

Well, I don't think that qualifies. What would qualify is if you never turned off your computer so that you didn't lose a few seconds while it booted! The tension of waiting that long would kill a good number of addicts out there .

My wife leans over and realizes I'm reading a forum about people being addicted to forums.

...you get a 1 day ban from AVS and stare at your PC thinking "it's broken!"

...you rethink a number of posts before you press submit - to avoid getiing a 1 day ban!

...you send a PM to a MOD asking "will this thread/post get me banned?" BEFORE you post it!

Hell my PC never gets turned off (I run F@H) but to add to your list

You get pissed at your wife for closing your browser when she checks her email because now you have to wait 15 seconds before clicking on the AVS tab and then scroll to the HD forums instead of just hitting "F5"

(BTW Lee F5 works faster than clicking the two green arrows since you don't need to move the mouse..you should be able to get 1.8 extra posts per day just from this time savings

I didn't start wondering until the time I was posting on AVS while waiting in a long line at Disneyland with my kids.

You keep a browser tab open to a porn site so your wife thinks you are addicted to something useful.

You know you’re an AVS forum addict if…

You watch and post on AVS instead of treating patients or making them wait a little longer.

Hi, my name is allargon, and I'm an AVS Forum-aholic.
post #56 of 257
......when you check AVS first thing in the morning, and it is the last thing you do at night, while your head nods back and forth, falling asleep, sitting on the couch.

Damned addictive site........
post #57 of 257
You KNOW you are addicted to AVS if......

You activate your unlimited internet plan on your phone carrier, so you can hook your phone up to your laptop,get 3G speed, and have your son read AVS to you, while blowing down the interstate at 85 in your 1994 Impala SS, on a 12 hr road trip!

Thats when we found out about the Paramount deal.
