Top 10 Signs you've been on BF too long

#10) Every other BF topic seems dumber than the last.

#9) The fact that you've never fallen over in your clipless pedals starts to amaze you.

#8) You get more Private Messages on BF than business emails on Mondays.

#7) No matter how dire the world news, you check Road Cycling on BF first when you go online.

#6) Although you've never been a huge fan, you start to worship Vinokourov.

#5) You start actually thinking bicycles may have bling after all.

#4) You think DocRay may to be onto something with his 'they're all doping' rants.

#3) You realize that your bike schwag purchases over the past two years could have bought you a pretty nifty new motorcycle.

#2) You start using the succinct terms 'correct' and 'incorrect' in conversation with friends and family.

And the #1 sign you've been on BF too long

#1) botto has become a Beacon of Light and Truth.

When you ordered a BF NorCal jersey and then felt bad the 50+ BF forum didn't have their own, so you designed it and are having it made....
But that's not it
It's that I feel bad there isn't a jersey for this BF forum (at least that I know about. Did I blink?)

If anyone ever seems me wearing a jersey like this, please shoot me. It would be categorized by the authorities as euthanasia.

That is all.

That's a pretty cool front door Botto has there. It would be cool to take come bike pics in front of that door. Maybe that could replace the white garage door?

Botto looks like he's put on a few lbs though and what was he thinking with the white? BLACK SHORTS ONLY BOTTO!!! BLACK SHORTS ONLY!!!

The beauty of BF is that the dumbness is not just on the surface.

Your work suffers...

Your marriage suffers...

Your relationship with your kids suffers...

Your riding suffers...

You forgot Number 11: posting about issues that are irrelevant and completely unrelated to biking.

I thought #11 was "You feel the need to add a #11 to a list of Top Ten Things..."

When you have nothing better to post than a topic like: Top 10 Signs you've been on BF too long.

When you know that it has all been said, so all answers are available via the search. Therefore, all that is left is pointless topics.

Your wife starts sleeping with a neighbor and then asks for a divorce.

I HAVE been here too long.
