            Luckily, I have a few more years before I have to grow up. Too few, but a few.

                          There are people in the world who are guilty of #10? :shudders:

                          I'm guilty of 12. 17, probably 24 (based on the voice comms on our PCS server), 25, 26 (whether winning or losing)

                          I would have added 20, but there's nothing wrong with winning an argument in any forum, especially if you're right.

                            thought a bit about # 2...then realized my 13 y/o would be jealous so I gave it up :-)

                              I just turned 30 and I have run into #1 at a few times at big LAN parties and gaming conventions that have RTS and FPS tournies.

                              Makes me wish Warcraft was a full contact sport and I was 15 again :-)
