Addicted to PF

  • #1
I have only been here a few days and I think that I am becoming addicted. :bugeye: :rofl:
So, I begin my physics forums career.

Are you guys addicted? Is there a 12 step program for PFaholics?

How long have you all been here?

There's a 1 step program, which cured me of the addiction I developed last summer.

Get hammered, and go and read every single one of tribdog's posts. That's right, every last one of them. You'll soon feel yourself losing the will to live. At that point, go and read every one of tribdog's posts again. Repeat this process every time you feel yourself giving in to the addiction. You'll soon find that you no longer need to keep coming back here.

Now, now, tribdog is the reason some people are here. Ok, I'm lying, but his posts can be hilarious.

PF addiction is serious. Some members have gone so far as to request that we ban them so they can't sneak in here instead of studying or working.

For real?

When I say I am addicted, I mean that I am merely spending a lot of time here reading posts and I find I like the forums. The thread was merely started as a joke.

JOKE!?! :grumpy:

No, some people are seriously addicted. Of course, I could quit at any time, I'm not addicted, this isn't my life, I can stop, it's uhm, because I'm needed here, so I can't leave, yes, that's it! :redface:

You're joking or lying. No one on the planet has the stomach to read all his posts.

Signmund Freud once recognized PF as the wonder drug. Good for you, but then you get addicted, and you can't stop.

It's not the addiction as much as the fact that the door is locked. Then, after a few days, you become one of us, and then the only way to leave is to be banned.

I did think that Townsend went a little too far in asking to be banned...
