    5028: You wonder why it is august 3rd and there is still no ceremony *

    5029: You're planning a jet plane trip to meet a female civ2'er you met on nationstates and wonder if the plane would be redirected and you would be arrested and interrogated if you played civ2 while on the plane. *

    5030: You wonder why you've wasted precious civ2 time on nationstates when you should have been playing civ2.

    (w00t! I got something adding up to 8! :D )

    5031 - You believe that all the nations in the world have the same type of units e.g Armor

    5032 - You believe that everyone in the world will die an horrible and tragic death in 2020 just like they predicted...

    5033 - ....but everyone lives but the only flaw in this is that you can get more points...

    5034 - ...which means you failed to get 254 cities with a population of 40 in all cities...

    5035 - ....and you can't manage to get a higher score...

    5036 - ..you then destroy your computer in your rage easily because your computer has 1 def and 3 hp while you have 10 att....

    5037-..and you destroy your Civ II disc which is in the CD Drive....

    5038-...but you think it's still possible to "restore your computer and CD to full health"...

    5039-..you send both of it to a military barracks and wait for 2 years for it to get full health...

    5040-....3 years later you think that the Miltary are Riflemen "barbarians" on Deity level because they "accidentally" destroy your stuff which they think are "Nuclear Weapons" as you leave it outside their doors...

    5041 -...you then get fed up and buy a computer and a Civ II CD which costs you 2100 gold and start playing CIV II

    5042- You see each ant colony you eliminate in your house as a city...
    5043- ...the sugar they built them near as grassland...
    5044- ...and the ants that travel from them as explorers and settlers.
    5045- You wish you could establish diplomatic relations with them, offering peace if they simply withdraw from your territory. (your house)
    5046- Since the menu option to track unit losses inflicted on the infidel ants doesn't seem to be working, you think of examining the ants you've killed to tally it yourself.
    5047- After destroying the last colony you could find, you wonder why you haven't received a message that the enemy ant civilization has been destroyed...
    5048- ...but you figure they must be barbarians. There are hordes, after all.
    5049- You can think of only one way barbarians can build cities- then wonder how the sugar was building a settler when the ants captured it.
    5050- You see another ant go by and prepare to voyage into the black, unexplored regions again.

    (PS- Wasn't this thread sticky?)

    5051 - You wonder when "Ants" became a Civ.

    5052 - You just can't shake the feeling that somebody is watching your city.

    5053 - You think you represent thousands of citizens.

    I am sorry if things similar to this have been said but I don't have enough time to read all of them in the same sitting.

    5054- You dress up as a Phalax and start trying to invade your neighbors "cities" (or houses).
    5055- You force your friends and family to build a railroad to work so you can get there instantly.
    5056- You demand money from your family saying "okay guys, I just raised the tax rate. I want the gold!"
    5057- You yell "Suprise ATTACK!!" and start poking the person next to you. *

    5059 - You practice shooting a bow and arrow, and as you do, you yell:

    HIYAH-ah-HEY!-Hi-Heah! *Glass shatters*

    5060 - You are thrilled that this thread has finally got some new blood. *

    5061 - You wonder where the heck the old blood went. *

    5062 - You slept in front of your local game shop the night before Civ4 was released, not to get it first, but to block the entrance so that other people couldn't buy it.

    5063 - You wonder why you were taken away by the police because of it.

    5064 - The prison Warden says you can leave in one more day, but you hear "just one more turn", recall the one-more-turn syndrome, and go berserk.

    5065 - You think C3CF should be ashamed to post in the Civ2 fora with the sig he has.

    5066 - You try to convert the last two words to "Civ2", but you are blinded by rage at the blasphemy of even mentioning that C-word in the Civ2 fora.

    5067 - You try to gather a lynch mob against C3CF, but fail...

    5068 - ...and wonder why.

    Don't worry, C3CF, I mean no offense, this is a joke thread, right?

    5069 - You disagree with the above statement.

    No offense. If it makes you feel better, I have Civ II and ToT.

    No problem, in this thread we put an asterisk (*) after each clue we are guilty of.

    5070 - You wonder why C3CF wants to play [certain Civ game not to be mentioned in the Civ2 fora] when he has Civ2.

    5071 - You decide it's time to log off and spend the night playing Civ2 instead of spamming the forum.
