    1 ) You spend all of your spare time trying to design a real gravity gun.

    2) Everytime you turn around you see a man in a suit, and you refuse to admit to the therapist that he isn't real.

    3) You've gotten a degree from MIT for flipping switches.


    Feel free to add on to these, only 998 left!

    (Don't forget to number your signs)

    I actually think I have a disease that causes me to impulsively shoot every single barrel I see in Counter-Strike: Source. My god I loved the blue gravity gun as well :D

    10 ) You make a pile of Combine bodies with the blue gravity gun and call it art (like the sculptor who has that entire park in Oslo, Norway with all the nude sculptures? That obelisk is frightening!)

    11 ) You have constant dreams about Half-Life 2 (Alyx pr0n ones don't count)

    12 ) You've taken over a thousand Half-Life 2 screenshots to date

    13 ) You're on a mod team.

    14 ) You're on two mod teams.

    15 ) You're on three.

    16) You keep running up to women, ogling them and pushing against them.

    19. When you keep thinking to yourself "the right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world" whenever you are trying to accomplish somthing you're having trouble with, even when it has nothing to do with being the right man or in the wrong place.

    40) You imagine, when sitting in a classroom, what the room would look like once you have the Manipulator at hand. Grabbing the desks and chairs with your Manipulator and launching them around the room for fun. Watching the bodies of the students ragdoll around. Piling all the desks up in a corner and laughing. (This one.........is for real)
