    2341: You deny the existence of Snowpocalypse '11 due to the fact that Illinois is a Grassland tile. It can't go from Grassland to Tundra to Ice in the space of two days. Is RL some weird mod? Am I being Worldbuildered? I want my green grass back!

    (For those of you in different parts of the world, and/or reading this six months from now, most of America just went through what for us was a vicious blizzard. My driveway became a glacier. Cue mocking giggles from Canadians and Scandinavians.)

    2342: You don't think of your place in the workforce in terms of career or job title. Rather- for myself anyway- I am part of the :hammers: in one of Chicago's outlying Towns. Good thing my civ is running Universal Suffrage, otherwise the :hammers: would go away.

    2343: And when I was in the Army I must've been part of a Gunship.

    2344: You miss this thread like a Praetorian misses an iron mine. You appreciate Eklabiaan for :bump:ing it, but you realize you may in fact be sitting here for several turns thinking up new clues.

    2345: You occasionally see other users with your avatar, and do a double take. "I don't remember posting in this thread!"

    ...er, maybe that one means I spent too much time on CFC when I should be playing.

    2346: You wonder if the Japanese get a lot of WFYABTA when they go to the G8.

    2347: You are concerned that if North Korea attacks South Korea, America might tell the South Koreans WHEOOHRN because of Afghanistan and Iraq.

    2348: You note that Kansas is the "Breadbasket of America" and is therefore the "GP Farm of America". Then you wonder what Great People have come from Kansas. (Just kidding, Kansans...) Eisenhower was a GG, but they don't come from the GP farm. Hmm.

    2349: You don't understand how there are Mints in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. These cities are not and have never been Malinese.

    2350: Furthermore, the New York Stock Exchange was created shortly after America became a civ. Must've been a bug; evidently the English were building it up until the Revolutionary War and it somehow stayed in the build queue after New York became American.

    2351: You see your avatar and think it means you get +1 free specialists on CFC.

    2352. You wonder if it's really such a good idea to hava a Right of Passage with Canada. They might found a city in Nebraska and claim it as part of their civ.

    2353. Your hands are itching to make an analysis of this thread. Imagine the graph of "Nr of Clues per week"! Such a bar chart might even convince dissappointed [civ5] players to come back to [civ4] and its famous "1000 clues" thread ! :yup:
    2354. You would rather play a few more turns than making such an analysis as it would be a tedious boring long manual job.:crazyeye:
    2355. You create a Mod in which you can order the govenor to focus on making clues in the "1000 Clues" thread.

    2356. You write a letter to the mayor of your city telling him to stress the generation of money, and a year later you wonder why the city is still in financial straits. You suspect there's a bug affecting all of Real Life (TM), and consider reporting God for sloppy design work.

    2357. You take an instant and intense dislike to men with cleft chins.

    2358. You take an equally instant and intense dislike to women with ponytails.

    to any moderators. since there is no actual nudity, I dont think its too graphical, however I'm not really the judge of that, so if, just delete the post.

    2,363) You are sitting here arguing with complete and utter morons about Civ strategy...
    2,364) Wait... wasn't this thread supposed to end 1,363 reasons ago?
    2,365) You have been playing so much, even Boudica looks good to you.
    2,366) And you're mesmerized by her eyes...
    2,367) And other parts of her body...

    2368: You think the warning labels in cigarettes and alcohol should say +1:) +1 :yuck:
    2369: You don't understand why some people don't like hit movies because they're a happiness resource.
    2370: When you get stuck in a traffic jam, you later say that you "lost x movement points".
    2371: You make a SimCity mod where a dictator of the country randomly orders you to focus on producing commerce, science or production, cap the growth, assign specialists and so on.

    2372 You wonder if your city is a science city, production city or GP farm and think the mix of buildings makes no sense.
    2373 You wonder why your country hasn't build it's own Oxford University.
    2374 You expect the world to end when they next elect a UN General Secretary.

    2375.) When someone asks why the U.S. has advanced technology, you blame it on them beelining Liberalism and then calling them noobs because you could get it pre-1000 AD
    2376.) You wonder how the Islamic Empires of the Middle Ages managed to get enough beakers to get both Divine Right and Astronomy given the land.
    2377.) You accuse Isabella of cheating, when you are told she expelled entire religions from her lands.
    2378.) When asked about the failing state of the education system, you demand them turn the Science Slider up and Espionage Slider down.
    2379) You think the Soviet Union collapsed because they spent too much on the Espionage Slider. No way anyone could lose that much money with State Property.
    2380) You will never name your son Montezuma, Alexander, or Shaka.
    2381) You will never name your daughter Catherine
    2382) When you are asked when your nation was found, you answer 4000 BC
    2383) You learn that Egypt did not switch to representation after building the pyramaids, and was confused.
    2384) You ignore all telemarketers with a automated message "We will never trade with you, our worst enemy"
    2385) You will not pick up the phone at cautious.
    2386) When asked why you aren't friendly to your best friend even though you claim you are , you say "I hate his wife"-- it averages to cautious.
    2387) You refer to propaganda as a lying GUI
    2388) Where is BUG mod for real life anyways?
    2389) You point out that one of the things in this list has been said already :deadhorse:

    2390: When you play poker and get a large amount of chips, you say you have a "stack of doom".

    2391: You wonder why Brazil hasn't spammed a bunch of Workers and chopped down the entire Amazon jungle. That's good cottage land, don't they care about their economy?

    2392: A for-real sign I've been logging too many hours: When you close you eyes to go to sleep, you see cultural borders and the outline of BFCs.
