When you get severely annoyed because people say Apogee and Perigee instead of Apoapsis and Periapsis.

Apogee and perigee are correct for Earth. The "gee" suffix relates to Earth. Similarly, around the Moon you have apolune/perilune or apselene/periselene, around Saturn you have apochron/perichron, and around Pluto you have aphadion/perihadion. Apoapsis/periapsis are general terms which apply to any orbit, but a lot of planets (and the Moon) have their own unique ones.

When you spend more time writing KSP stories in the Mission Reports section than writing that essay that needs to be finished.......

"PLEASE DON"T GIVE ME A ZERO. I"LL BE KILLED BY MY PARENTS! PLEASE!"

"Your essay is a blank sheet of paper, of course I'm giving you a ZERO!"

When you are watching a video and try to move the camera with your mouse. 

I do this all the time.

Right up there with trying to rotate my own screenshots.

When you have managed to convince yourself that if NASA somehow hired you as a pilot that you could easily fly a real rocket into space and dock it with the ISS with no real world training or experience.

As long as we could use a keyboard
