|You know you're a Qbasic programmer when...|
Ah yes, the marks of a true QB programmer are quite evident. Here are a few:
All of your 3.5 X 5" floppies are bereft of that small aluminum shielding from the magnetic disk.
After seeing something repeat itself, you think about FOR...NEXT loops.
Everytime you watch a movie, you try to replicate at least three events or seqences with a QB program.
You habitually travel to the bookstore just to cath the latest edition of " for Dummies."
You spend four times longer on your homework because you try to program an AI to do it for you.
You still think projects on the computer take less time than with paper and pencil.
You think any word that begins with "Q" must have something to do with QB.
You stop paying attention to people because you're thinking about your next game.
You think biology is the study of a computer's BIOS.
You think sociology is a dead science.
You think C++ is for cheaters.
When you get sick and bedridden, you take it as a sign to finish your latest program.
You wish you were multilingual just so you could figure out someone else's program.
To you, "multilingual" means you also know C or assembly.
If you're not doing something directly interactive (i.e. TV, play, concert) your mind wonders to QB.
Your idea of a sleepover involves using your neighbor's faster and better computer.
You stronlgy believe that if God creatred the world in six days way back then, by now it should only take Him .000001362 seconds.
You like to make up "You know you when...." lists.
A busy schedule and the lack of sleep are not deternets from getting onto the computer.
You can't get on the computer "just to check your email" -- they'll be something you can unavoidably find to do.
You catch yourself reading "You know you're a QB programmer when..." lists.
You want to go home because no one else is there.
You've ever entoned the phrase "I could use QB to make this better..."
You begin philosophying with your computer.
On a Freudian slip, you say your vehicle is a V8, 4.5 liter, 750 mega hertz beauty.
You order reset buttons in bulk because 4-6 weeks is too long.
