    The other day I was showing someone how to enter book records into a bibliography I mean to say, "you click on the I icon to italicize the title". But what I said was "you click on the I to irrigate the tile".

    A sure sign of too much Civ.

    i reckon you have played too much civ when instead of asking for a pay raise, you demand tribute.

    I have dreamed of civ once...

    In my dream I was the Carthaginians trying to beat the Americans. I woke up when they took my last city: Leptis Parva...

    I know when I have been playing too much Civ, because then I lose interest in the game!!! And that is how things are currently going for me - I have absolutely no interest in playing Civ of any kind and not really any games in general!!!

    So I'm taking a break for the next 2-6 months and concentrating on my school!!!!!

    I, too, have to give Civ a rest from time to time. When I start dreaming about Civ and looking at the world around me in terms of terrain tiles, then it's time to take a rest.

    On long rides thru hills, I sometimes look at them and wonder where the hell the big mine is - they are wasting their resources!
