-When your favorite channel is... NASATV!
-When your ringtone is the SSM2007 launch theme
-When you finish your telephone conversations with "Discovery Out"
-When you say goodbye to your friend: "see you on orbit"
-When you use the RMS to grapple the steak
-When you're taking your dog for an EVA

-You choose between NASA TV during a real mission or SSM2007

When you've got a black car and it's been baking in the sun and after you get in and start the engine, instead of reaching for the aircon controls, you actually pop the boot or hatch and wonder why the radiators haven't deployed yet...

When you shell out some US$300 for a TripleHead2Go and another US$99 for TrackIR Pro just to get more "into" SSM2007  Cool

 Shocked Ouch..... wonder how much it'd cost us in the U.K? $300 -> 300? (lol)
and does that include the cost for the extra BiG monitors?  Cheesy

A typical day in the life of an SSM2007 addict.

1. Wake up.
2. Have steak for breakfast.
3. Spend an hour getting changed.
4. Take the bus three miles to where you park your car.
5. Get into car, with assistance from several other people, who have made sure your car is correctly configured to go to work.
6. Spend 1 hour and 50 minutes (+ hold time) flicking switches on the dashboard.
7. Finally (as Spacewalker says), count-down from 10, switching on the engine at 6 seconds, then moving away at 0 seconds.
8. About 40 seconds after moving off, take your foot slightly off the accelerator for about 30 seconds, then floor it again.
9. After 8 minutes, release the accelerator fully, and a few seconds later, the fuel tank falls out of the car.
10. Some time afterwards, open the boot of the car and raise the aerial.
11. Program your place of work into the GPS system and slowly coast towards it.
12. Approach your place of work at speeds of no more than around 30cm/sec, and 10cm/sec for the last 50m or so.
13. Wait an hour before exiting the car and entering your place of work.
14. Go to boss' office and explain why you are 8 hours late for work.
