While sitting in the gym, you see three girls sitting in a triangle tossing a ball around, and they have their legs out as to keep the ball in their circle.

Then you think, "That is a perfect representation of a perfect keosynchronous comms network with three satellites and their FOVs."

Just happened. 

Unlike normal people seeing girls sitting in a circle, who would just try and talk to them.

What is this thing you call "social interaction. "

That's not social Interaction, it's driving from the other head.

Ha, too much KSP. You're funny.

Also, I now say Mun instead of Moon.

This happens to me recently when I talked to my family.

*News talking about the "Super Moon"*

Me: "That's funny. The news said the Mun is the only satellite on Earth. There should be two satellite around Earth." :huh:

Family: "Two?! Which two?"

Me: "Well...... Mun and Min.......................................... Wait..........." :P

When the last day of the semester I am grading the last exams and I have a mechJeb making several nodes to continue the game and the travels of my ships, to advance on my current game (near of 200 hours)

And one of the exercises of the Test is a orbits of phobos and deimos around Mars, only 2 students made it correctly until now.

I was about to send a risky text to a girl IIRC, so I thought "ooh, better quicksave... wait what?".


I tried to quicksave IRL. 

I remember being slightly confused about how one actually does that BEFORE I remembered that F5 is for games, not reality..

You know you play KSP too much when you apply to NASA with a screenshot of one of your creations and a caption saying "I did it in KSP, hire me."

So I researched the TWR and DV of the falcon 9 for reasons and came up with a total DV of 14,000 and something m/s. I'm like "wow! That is a lot of DV!" and then I remember it's for Earth, not Kerbin.

You know you are playing a lot of ksp when you are on a long boring drive and try to time wrap it. But then you realize you cannot time wrap while moving on terrain. And finally you conclude that you need help!

When you have a dream in which you have a glimpse of 3D model of the Moon on TV. A very detailed model with all the terrain clearly visible, especially edges of biggest craters as the point of view flies... And then you realize it's not the Moon - it's the Mun!

P.S. There was the planet briefly shown, too - although I didn't see enough to distinguish if that was Earth or Kerbin

It's come to the point where I accidentally say KSP's counterparts instead of our planet's actual name.

*Searching Wikipedia*

Let me search... Duna, UH I mean Mars rovers...

When you watch things like Apollo 13 and wonder why they didn't just pop timewarp on and off, realize "Oh yeah, NASA uses Persistent Rotation.", then realize real life doesn't have mods and that your entire line of thought has been silly.

You know you've played a lot of KSP when you remember a mod from 5 years ago and on searching discover that the links haven't been hosted for years... but then find the zip file in your KSP archives.
