    375. You finally manage to persuade your girlfriend to dress up like Catherine. In return she wants you to do the dishes for a week. The "slapping around" part enables you to reduce that to a mere three days.

    After three days (and one great night) she turns up in a peculiar new headdress mentioning that ancient egyptian queen you've got a thing about.
    376. Unable to resist the temptation you spend the following week washing up.

    Eight days later you find yourself bartering another two weeks of kitchen labour for the Chinese empress-act (where does she get her information?).
    377. Your hands are all pruned from dishwashing.

    You believe:
    378. Tiger Woods is one of the world's biggest Sid Meier fans and took a break from golf because he had a "hex addiction".
    379. All the girls in all the pictures were either fellow addicts or developers involved with smuggling the beta to him.
    380. The car accident occurred after his first ciV LAN party, during which none of the players slept for 38 hours.
    381. He is the coolest celebrity ever.

    382) You already wish the summer was over, even though it hasn't begun yet.
    383) You and your wife now have to make love on different hexagons.
    384) You have nightmares in which the game exclusively features civilizations such as Poland, Canada, Ireland, Australia, Luxemburg, Israel, the Sassanids, Gambia, Nauru, Singapore and "the Native Americans".
    385) You have another nightmare in which Winston Churchill appears in a swimsuit and with a little plastic bucket in his hand.
    386) You feel quite bitter towards Songhai because they have ousted Zululand.
    387) You start to read up on Songhai all the same...

    388) Also the game includes Andorra,
    389) Lichtenstein,
    390) San Marino,
    391) Monaco,
    392) and, of course, Vatican City.

    393) No, one is for surfing Civfanatics, one is for your webcam so you can talk to other civ-ers, one is for holding all the screenshots you've taken that won't fit on the other 5 computers that you are playing Civ on.

    390) You get beyond caring which of these are real clues and which of them aren't 'cos you just want to be a part of the ciV anticipation thread.

    393. You buy multiple computers and multiple copies of Civ4 to get your friends properly addicted in time for release date...

    When you try to calculate how many days you have left to play Civ5 before the world ends in 2012.

    396. You wonder if games in Civ V will end at 2012...and subsequently wonder how Civ 4 can go to 2050.*

    *No I'm not a believer in 2012...just wanted to keep that clear ;)

    398. You post more clues to fulfill Ramanag's wish.

    399. You have actually been involved in a debate about which civs should be in.

    400. You've carefully stared at every pixel of every screenshot

    401. You're mildly proud to have made the 400th clue.

    402) You cry for days and days and finally have to go into therapy over that fact that you didn't post the 400th clue.

    :p

    ...is anyone other than me getting the feeling that this is becoming a "post random funny things with sequential numbering" thread? (you'll note that's not a clue...)

    403) You worry too much whether or not the posts here are true and pure ciV anticipation posts or just random funny things with sequential numberings and that it is not like the good old days.

    404. You get involved in the above debate, arguing that the loyalists to the old threads are so cIV 4...
