... After a night of drinking, you refer to getting through the spin cycle (or calling Ralph on the porcelain telephone) as "Passing through Max-BAC"

You refer to potty-training a toddler as "Passing though Max-Poo"

When I call my dog "Kirby" Kerbin or Kerbal... Especially when more than once.

When you're reading a sci-fi novel and you yell at the book: AH! NO! You don't lower your orbit by pointing the rocket at the planet! You decelerate and then decelerate more at the periapsis!

This happened to me like 10 minutes ago :D

When you get bad grades at maths and your parents force you to uninstall KER and MechJeb and instead do it by hand.

This happened to me once :(

When it totally feels like it was 2-3 years not almost 5. Time dilation at its finest.

When you call fruit slicing "Decoupling of Stages".

Huh, really need to start playing KSP in moderation a bit more, I think I'm seeing myself turn green.

Last week I was pruning tomato plants (which inevitably turns your fingers green) and exclaimed, "I'm turning into a kerbal!" My coworkers didn't get the joke.

Well, I've seen the old Mixing up KSP planets with real ones, not so much myself but someone I knew got that way a while ago.

That one would probably be one of the most common KSP overdose symptoms based off what I have read.

Well, at least they still let you play rather than uninstall KSP completely.  Thats actually a good idea, very forward thinking parents you have there, being able to see beyond the fact it's a 'game' and understand the educational benefits.  If only KSP was around when my kids were still kids, instead they guided me towards KSP.

When you start to try to intentionally crash the game.

(Now crashed roughly 112,819,235,314 times. See what I did with the number there?)

When you can throw together a rocket, eyeball it, and it nearly works, or works perfectly first time.

When you do the math instead of aborting the mission over a forgotten KER part.

I suggest "MechJeb and Engineer for all" mod :wink:

When everytime I see a plane overhead, I imagine how I could make it in KSP,

and when I call the Moon the Mun. Like... all the time.
