You know you're addicted to CB when...:
(or you have been playing CB too long when...:

... You can't see a list of everyone's names in a room when you enter a room

... You keep writing Bot Check answers when entering store

... You keep checking stores every minute to see if anything new is in

... You wonder why when you fight someone there is no toggle box to view exactly how the fight went

... You hate all dwarves because they keep stealing whatever you're working on and throwing water on it

... You refuse to yell obscenities in crowded rooms for fear of a good kick but are happy enough to use such words when conversing with someone in private

... You cry when you're bank balance doesn't show $5mill

... You wonder where Mandos is

... You join clans for cheaper costs then realise these clans don't really help

... Your girlfriend leaves you for someone else

... Your girlfriend leaves you because you got her addicted to CB and there was only 1 computer in the house

... You get fired from work for sleeping every 3 hours

... Your alarm clock goes off every 3rd hour

... You have an urge to give the first 10 people who wish you Happy Birthday $10k, then realise this will bankcrupt you

... You wonder why when you are the first person to wish someone happy birthday they don't give you $10k

... You wonder why the bank doesn't pay out 12% per week and not allow balances over $1mill

You're old when...
... You remember that chance to cast of spells

... You wonder whatever happened to CrackMonkey

... You remember fight rewards being maxed

... You look at the date and realise "it's almost 3 years since I started playing CB"

... You remember Math bot checks

... You remember the time before /\88/\ & Todd being merged

... You remember FoD

... You remember a time when Lochs were ultra valuable at $1mill and EC's were given away (or if someone sold one, it'd get like 5-10k)

... You remember PK, ProteusBoy etc

... You can help new (sub)admins with their job without having ever been one (or even an op)

... you remember a time pre-elbows, when HXBows ruled the roost

... You remember getting a HoI or GoP (1st Batch) as a supporter item

... You remember the thrills of 1mill PR

... You remember a time before skills

... You remember Valgasu as an admin

... you sacrificed sleep and sunlight for a tournament, yet still lost.

... you find yourself saying, "just 48 more fights and i'll be right there".

... you wonder what the stats would be on that rusty machete in your garage.
