-145. You are tempted to edit your post after someone pointed out an error in it, but then you realize everyone will know you made that error, because *someone* told them in big, colourful letters. :roll:

-146. You edit it anyway.

-147. You click on the sig, and are not suprised the the huge "Person Above You thre" page does not yet mention you, because you didnt start posting in it until it had been going on for a while.

-149. You search all dogs for zippers, just in case they're really Aibos in disguise.

-150. If there is no zipper, you feel obligated to warn the dog's owner of the dangers of angered chili.

-151. You pause episodes midway through so you can watch along with the fiver.

-152. You remember when updates were regular and when "soon" meant "tomorrow." Oh, and when there was peace in Israel.

-153. You hurl stale Timbits at anyone who invokes the last one, since it never happened.

-154. You make jokes about Ron Mercer and the parody police, even though you've never heard of This Hour has Twenty-Two Minutes.

-155. You start giving strange hats to your doctor friends.

-156. You try to kill your doctor friends in various strange ways, and, whether or not you succeed, you run off laughing maniacally and occasionally shouting "GAK!"

-157. You start beating up anyone who uses more than one exclamation point, even if they're spoken exclamation points.

-158. You go to other websites and intentionally divert their threads to random and tangental territory. Preferably within the first 15 posts.

-159. You keep pressuring a friend whose brother designed "Chex Quest" to check out the fiver.

-160. You put thirteen items on a top ten list even though you've only read five of the fifteen pages of the thread.
