You spend way too much time doing physics...

* if you are completely addicted to PhysicsNow.com.

* if you can't remember what's behind the door at Hilbun Hall which says 'Exit.'

* if you have no life - and you can PROVE it mathematically.

* if you enjoy pain.

* if you know vector calculus but you can't remember how to do long division.

* if you chuckle whenever anyone says 'centrifugal force.'

* if you've actually used every single function on your graphing calculator.

* if it is sunny and 70 degrees outside, and you are working on a computer.

* if you always do homework on Friday and Saturday nights.

* if you have a pet named after a scientist.

* if you laugh at jokes about mathematicians.

* if when your professor asks you where your homework is, you claim to have accidentally determined its momentum so precisely, that according to Heisenberg it could be anywhere in the universe.

* if the 'fun' center of your brain has deteriorated from lack of use.

* if you'll assume that a 'horse' is a 'sphere' in order to make the math easier.

* if you understood more than five of these indicators.

* if you make a hard copy of this list, and post it on your door.
