-When you see a lady walking down the street swinging a grocery bag you are instantly reminded of a slinger

- When you try to give stand ground orders to your annoying relatives.

-When you become a Myrtor all because you want to kill yourself to become someone better.

If you have anything you wish to add from playing AoE too long, go ahead.

Another way you know when you've been playing AoE to long is: when you're up in a big building looking down at all the little people, and you try clicking them with your hand and right clicking them expecting them to go where you commanded.....LOL

I don't like it when people copy my name. It is no fun for me or for the person copying. So please stop, and change your name to something else.

uh. I was "Peter The Great" longer then you were.You may have been a member longer then me but look at the post difference. I have about 205, you have 20. If you don't believe me then check my info and you'll see. I don't mind that you have the same name as me, I just hope no one gets us mixed up. I didn't even know you then, and you didn't know me. I started in Caesar 3 forum, so what we have the same name. What does it matter? I am not copying you. Don't be a baby

In your first two sentences you just contradicted yourself. I may not post very much, but I read the boards everyday. The reason I don't post all that much is that I don't like it when people repeat the same things over (and over). So I try not to.
Another thing, IMO, is that my name is more accurate. I am talking about the Czar Peter, while you could mean yourself. Are you even Russian? Another interesting ting I noticed is that you are also on AOL. Have you been to the AoE Message Boards?


P.S. I would like to play you RoR sometime. Maybe we could fight over the title .

Hey Cait, it is Scythe! But its ok, we all make mistakes. Even I do (Read on )

Here is another: You know you've been playing AOE to long when you can spell all of the units (yes including the Scythe Chariot ) without cheating

Every time you hear a disturbing sound, your finger twitches involuntarily to click the middle button.

Keep your stick on the ice.

I sometimes get this funny urge to fling off my shirt and shoes, and chop some wood...

Berries... berries.... have craving for some berries...

Hmmm, the buildings seem somewhat oversized...

I've got a Logitech M-C43. I like it better than the MIcrosoft wheel mouse, anyway. BTW, that wheel on a real Microsoft mouse will depress and send a middle button click. Just takes some getting used to.

Keep your stick on the ice.

you've been playing too much when.....you divert your direction toward nearest shallows when you see what appears to be a lion, but turns out to be a shepherd/collie mix.

Once had a very early morning LAN party with friends. I brought my dog, which was checking out the digs. One of my buddies rounds the corner of a hall and sees this rather large brownish creature headed directly toward him. Being an "RoR Event", his mind immediately thought, "Lion ! Run, Forest, run !!" Took him a second to realize it was just my dog. Quite funny

You been playing AoE too long when you get "attacked" and you drop whatever you were doing and search for your big bone.

It was a 1v1, jungle map, I (white) was in the center and my opponent (green) controlled 95% of the map. I started off in the tool age with an MTD Yardman 5 HP push mower (a riding mower would have been bronze age & paying the neighbors kid would've been iron-age.) I struggled to decide what strat I was going to use. The map covered a full 3/4 acre, and I couldn't decide whether to cut in a circle gradually moving away from the house, cut in parallel tracks, or do the golfer's checkerboard. When the game started I chose the parallel-track method because it is my favorite, and I swear that the grass cutting goes much quicker. Go figure.

I decided to divide and conquer this day. The small patch of grass at 3 was isolated from its more powerful ally by my gravel driveway. A good place to launch an offensive. I started off strong. My legs were fresh, the air was cool (11:00 am) and my thirst had been quenched. I attacked the weaker of my foes with a zeal and a vengeance that I hadn't exhibited before. Chug, chug roared the mower. I pushed the mower across the yard, reversed direction and cut again. "Hey, this isn't too bad," I thought. The grass was succombing easily to the whirling dervish that was the cutting blade. "Maybe I'll be done in an hour!" Yeah right!

I finished the small section without any major problems, a bit of sweat beaded on my brow and I was starting to feel a bit thirsty. Without slowing down I turned my attention to the tough part. This section of my lawn consists of a steep hill that runs down to the street. It is protected by trees that constantly drop their limbs, branches, and acorns. The end result is usually a treacherous struggle pushing the cutter up the hill while avoiding the flying and debilitating debris that shoots out from all parts of the mower.
Any sane man would scoop up all the debris before he cut, but not me. Besides not being sane, I like to mulch everything and return the destroyed villies and troops back to their mother earth.

Today was no different, as the acorns tended to be worst. If I wasn't slipping and sliding on them, then they were shooting out from under the mower smack into my knees and shins. Yet I pushed...and pushed...and kept on pushing the mower. Up the hill and down the hill. Up, down. On and on the battle raged. I thought I was going to lose. Tree limbs crashed at the most inopportune moments. Acorns smashing in to me. My breathing became labored. The sweat began pouring down the sides of my face, over my eyes, dripping off my nose, yet I kept up the assault. I'll NOT give into the ever growing foliage. Never!

At one point, I heard voices. Very quiet to start, "Chubby." Then again, "Chubby." Ever so softly. I tried to shrug it off. But the voices became louder, Chubby, Chubby, Chubby..." what was going on? This had never happened before. Now, I was almost through cutting the grass, the enemy was in full retreat, yet the voices persisted. "CHUBBYHUBBY! CHUBBYHUBBY! CHUBBYHUBBY!" And then I remembered how thirsty I was. How HOT I was. Where were those voices coming from? Whose voices were they?

With just a few passes to go it dawned on me. It was Ben & Jerry! Somehow they had permeated my subconciosness and were trying to remind me that we had run out of Chubby Hubby Ice Cream! "OH NOOOO!!!," I screamed. What in the world was I going to do? After 2 hours of grass cutting, I now had nothing to look forward to. So I became frantic. I flew threw the rest of the lawn, drove to 7-11 and bought a six-pack of Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby Ice Cream!

Whoa! I don't think anything ever tasted better.

Hmmmmm.....I'm hungry!

You know you're playing too much when you're in a chat room, and instead of cursing somebody you type "diediedie"
