The "You know you're playing a lot of KSP when..." thread

Recommended Posts

While I sleep I dream of building rockets in KSP and colonizing other planets.

You know you play too much KSP when you decide to put "LiquidFuel" in your car's tank.

I know I've played too much when I'm better than my science teacher at orbital maneuvering.

I tried to give my friend a crash course on orbital mechanics, too.

 

"ITS NOT ROKET SCIENC"

I love how your signature is a rocket falling and exploding.

Fits perfectly with the "ITS NOT ROKET SCIENC"

Was checking out at a counter in Wal Mart and heard the anti-theft alarm and thought "Oooh, somebody's got a fuel leak."

 

(I usually play with the Dang It! mod and for some reason the alarms were very similar at this Wal Mart).

When you spend a few hours on a sunny Saturday sitting indoors, looking at a screen while someone else is playing the game and calling out information to other people who are watching the same guy.

On a different note, the Real Space Program had it's first launch today.

When you have over 2000 hours counted on your Steam KSP install and know you've done hundreds more in "off-the-books" installs.

Today, one of my coworkers parked his own personal vehicle in the path of a raging fire in a field of dry hay stubble, jumped on a passing firetruck. and disappeared over the horizon with the keys of his own ride in his pocket.  Thus, many assets were diverted for a while to save his ride at the expense of several acres in other directions.   And the whole time, I was wondering what his stupidity rating was.

My boss called . . . asked me where I have been all week.     :(

As a physics major, I had to give a physics-related presentation to my class and the professor (its a 100-level class, so nothing too complicated). I basically just did a video of me explaining the bare basics of orbital mechanics. Literally just me explaining why you have to do a gravy turn, and what burning prograde and retrograde do, and noting the relationship between velocity and altitude.

Yeah, you got to watch out for those gravy turns - otherwise, you'd end up spilling it and that would be a mis-steak ;)

When you're editing a Google Doc and you hit shift and scroll to zoom out. This literally just happened.

I play KSP with EVE installed, can you tell?   :D

Yeah, me too...

happened to me a bit ago XD

No? No?

OK.

Sorry.

when your talking about pathfinder, and you say "Pathfinder went to mar- no Duna"

I have no idea where I got the idea of the planets being called Mars Earth Jupiter Pluto and Venus.

When you watch a documetary about Saturn V and Apollo flights and think how the heck did that stay in one piece without struts!

When your boss texts you last night saying he has an exciting opportunity to discuss tomorrow being seconded to local government and to give it some thought over night, and all I managed to think about was how to improve my lander.

NASA installed Part Welder during Gemini, so they could fuse the tanks and the engines.  The remaining strut work is hidden under fairings, which you can kind of see from their old Hull cam shots (some of which were posted by this orbiter player).

When during physics classes about space and rocketry I'm like: "Hans(the teachers name), that's not how it works! " and he just skips the discussion because he knows I'm right...  And next lesson a presentation. Guess how I showed lag?

Man, but I hope that launch tower is one part, all those struts would lag really badly.
