    Earth... Unfortunately
    Tasking Orders: After looking through the forums and realizing their was no "1000 Reasons You Play Civ IV too much" thread already started I decided to start one myself after reading the hilariously funny thread "1000 Reasons You play Civ 3 too much". I'm hoping everyone can submit at last 1 clue (if not more), I will begin by submitting 20.

    NOTE: For those of you who have read 1000 Clues you play Civ 3 too much thread, try not to use repeats of that thread

    now without further ado

    22. You wonder why the Spain didn't found Hinduism. The only way India could have snagged both it and Buddhism is if Isabella didn't even try.

    23. Everything around you is reduced to Civilization terms. For example, on a train through the New Forest (around Southampton) I thought to myself, "Oh look...a source of Horse."

    Kinky if it's the wrong one. Mind you, the number of crushes I've had on people, what Chatty Cathy doesn't want, Crowqueen will have happily :D (this from someone who was "gone" on John Major at the age of 12 and found Michael Howard even more charming in real life than his vampire image made him seem...). David Cameron, Blair and Brown have too many teeth to be sexy, though when Brown smiles he looks like my Uncle Ian, so that's a plus in my book. Barack would be sexy (kind of Justinian meets Mansa Musa) if he gave any intimation of knowing what to do if he got the presidency, and McCain...I wouldn't say no. Would get my vote if I had one.

    47. You read the newspapers and (a) believe it's Anarchy (1) at the moment, (b) wonder whether it has been Anarchy (5) and (c) wonder what the Civic change the government is going to implement next.

    48. You spend your nights while trying to sleep making up stories about what your Civ cities would look like in reality.

    49. You spend most of the time not playing reading up on ancient history just to find out who Justinian and Gilgamesh and Cyrus of Persia actually were.

    51. When you become a politician, your greeting to foreign dignitaries goes like, "Is that a treaty in your pocket or are you just excited to see me?"
