    5281. You get an F for your history paper on WWII after citing "Axis failure to build STC."

    5282. You see a woman with short hair, wearing a purple leotard and become worried that she'll try to bribe your children.

    5283. You're hauled off by the cops after attempting to 'expel' the woman and she 'issues a statement of protest.'

    5286: You wonder why cities are so big and why there are so many skyscrapers on a large area, when in reality all those millions of people would fit in a couple of two-story houses viewed from a bird's perspective, all within a walled area no larger than 15 square kilometers

    (not sure if this wasn't posted before, it's hard to read all 5k+ reasons in a few minutes)

    You have to read it twice to understand why a "normal person" would be confused by the question.

    5301: Upload a 40 hour game and upload it to youtube.

    Only to find out you need to split it into 240 parts (Yes, I actually did the math).

    5302: You get upset at the above statement because I divided 2400 by 10 rather than 10.59 or whatever the precise time of the maximum limit of youtube videos is represented in the metric system.

    5303: You accidentally cut your knee on an exposed sharp object and do nothing about it because you're too busy finishing up your spaceship

    (Actual event, the skin over my knee was sliced by a protruding wooden splinter coming up from the chair I was sitting in, pathetic huh?)

    5304: Upon reading the news that Oil and Copper prices are up,

    http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article.aspx?id=475595

    you look for oil and copper freights to wake up near faraway, demand large cities with superhighways and multi-special tiles in another continent belonging to an AI civ but do not have nightmares because you realize that there isn't such thing as hog freight in Civ2.

    5305: After seeing so many made-in-China items in your house, you begin to worry if China is just keeping America around as a pet civ that they can send endless number of freights to maximize their score just before launching their spaceship to Alpha Centauri in 2013.

    5319. You just saw a blurb on here that Civ 5 is coming out this year. They came out with Civ 3 AND 4 already?!

    5320. You don't care. Civ 2 is awesome.

    5321. Your wildest fantasy includes the "foreign advisor."
