857. You firmly believe that the story of BoatMurdered should be taught in every grade-school history class, because, of course, it really happened dammit!

858. While watching Gold Rush, you think "why don't they just bring in a legendary miner?"

859. While watching the same show, you hope that what they actually have is limonite, which is far more useful anyway.

860. You view the Florida Keys as an almost perfect embark zone; You have FLUX, loads of trees, and plenty of dwarven reactor spots, along with clay. Only problem is that trading is still broken, so you can't import enough iron to make steel in meaningful amounts.

Glacial on dwarves being assigned socks:

You see, here's how I think this works:
Overseer: Welcome to the military! You need to wear socks! Dorf: Oh, I should get military socks. My socks are civilian socks. Dorf discards socks Dorf: You know, I need a whole lot of gear now. I should get socks... last. Oh, but these steel boots with the white goo on them are nice!

861. When you start announcing the real-time results of a All-Species Bloodbath in Arena mode to someone who has no knowledge of DF. "Ooh, the unicorn just died. Bat Man suffocated! Ah man, I was hoping the dwarf would go farther, but it just got smashed into a wall."
True story.
862. You go to a bonfire and wonder why everyone's sitting in a circle around empty space.

862: When you refer to the blueprints supplied by your clients as being 'dwarven' because there's no way they can exist in euclidean geometry.

873.  But then you are struck with the sudden fear that your still annoying friend will haunt you after death.  (There's a thought for that...)
874.  You handcraft some coffins and put them in your basement "just to be prepared"... and don't understand why people keep avoiding you after you say things like that.

875. You keep a separate refrigerator for each type of food you have, regardless of how much space it takes up, plus one empty one "just in case".
876. You keep spare refrigerators in your attic.
877. When short on cash, you strip naked and offer the cashier your clothing.
878. You refuse to take medicine thinking it's an exploit because a proper biochemistry system hasn't been implemented yet.

877.  You will also commute to the office where you will annoy your former coworkers or whoever the new people are too, just for the fun of it.
