    I've seen some Star Wars fanatics make threads like this and I thought I'd make a DCAU version.

    You know you're obesessed with DCAU when..

    You own every DCAU actionfigure ever made

    You name your pets after DCAU characters.

    You name your kids after DCAU characters

    The court gives you a restraining order because you've been stalking Bruce Timm.

    You dress up as a DCAU character every Halloween.

    You have to build out your house to get more space for your collection.

    You laugh every time you hear someone say 'there's a bat in my basement'.

    lmao, yeah.:D

    You have actually tried to use the Flash's pickup lines on real girls.

    You taped a paper cutout of the Batman emblem to a flashlight and tried to shine it into the sky.

    When you heard someone comment on how dark and sad "Apocalypse Now" was, you whole-heartedly agreed -- only to find they were talking about a movie.

    When you read the paragraph above, your heart felt heavy and you bowed your head for a moment of silence in honor of Dan Turpin.

    You snicker at the n00bs who call Teen Titans anime.

    You snicker at the n00bs who call Teen Titans DCAU.

    The term "diniverse" offends you (give b.t. his proper credit, dammit!)

    You see a real bomb explode and think, "Wow, that must've been animated by TMS!"

    you put off dates with women so you can stay home on Sat night and watch the show

    you download the mp3 of the opening theme, repeat it over and over again, and try to fly through the air in a still motion as the original 7 are depicted in the theme

    you walk around in a city, look high up at a skyscraper, and try to reach in your pocket for a grappling gun to lift you away

    you attempt to shoot something out of a ring you wear

    you fantasize about doing DCAU females

    You do realize that's actually fairly feasible with the right ring, if I'm not mistaken...

    You get angry when somebody proudly exclaims that Jack Nicholson is the ultimate Joker.

    You get a giddy fanboy thrill when watching Deadwood and Carnivale because they respectively star Powers Boothe and Clancy Brown.

    You are excited to find out that David Palmer from 24 is also Kilowog on Justice League.

    You've forced your non-DCAU-nut friends to watch all of BTAS/TNBA, STAS, and BB before they get to watch JL(U).

    You use abbreviations such as DCAU, BTAS, TNBA, STAS, BB, and JL(U)--and expect others to understand them.

    "Harvey! Nooooo!" is a phrase permanently ingrained in your mind.

    This hits closer to home...

    You only began watching 'Lost' because its written by Paul Dini and Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Metron in JLU is there.

    You rewatch 'Friends' episodes to catch Lauren Tom (Dr Light of JLU and Dana of BB)

    You break in to mental hospitals and asylums hoping to find psychopaths who are two-faced, have green hair and white skin or are can make plants grow at lightspeed.

    When someone asks you if you think superheroes excist in real life and you reply: "I don't think, I know they do"

    you plan on naming your kids Bruce and Tim

    your friends are amazed by some of the adult innuendos in JLU ("he's like the whole track team at once")

    you have toy displays that take up half your room

    you search yard sales for old batman toys to add to your collection

    you get into arguments with older "superfriends" fans as to which is the better cartoon

    your girl/boyfriend and you discuss how hot you are for cartoon characters

    Ah, fun.

    You know you've jumped in the deep end when ...

    You can remember three or more incarnations of this board.

    You tried to beat the Fresh Question.

    You remember when today's mods were newbies.

    You're on The List of people the creative team look for and have *plans* for.

    The creative team breaks cover and joins the boards simply to tell you that you are on The List.

    You can spot other people who have earned a place on The List ... and don't know it.

    You write fanfic. (Well, maybe not everyone.)

    You write nonfic.

    And it's a beautiful spring/summer/fall/winter day outside.

    And it's 20+ pages.



    You know other people have jumped in the deep end when ...

    They actually read it.

    And respond to it.

    Sometimes with 20+ pages.

    And they have (literally) hundreds more posts than you do. Or thousands. Or tens of thousands. And then they ask if you have no life.

    You know other people have jumped in the deep end when they're on The List ... and don't know it. ;)

    Or when you see someone on a Star Wars message board say "ROTJ sucked" and you get angry, screaming, "Hey, they can't talk that way about Return of the J-- oh. Ewoks. Okay."

    You have contributed to the DCAU Wikipedia articles (guilty as charged).

    You have written definitions of DCAU terms on UrbanDictionary (guilty again).

    You have thown plastic coat hangers, pretending they are Batarangs.

    You can actually hit something with the coat hanger.

    You bought shurikens after seeing "The Man Who Killed Batman" or "I am the Night."

    You can actually hit something with the Shuriken.

    You get episodes of JLU off Limewire or Bittorrent BEFORE they air

    You put the episodes of JLU on Limewire or Bittorrent BEFORE they aired.

    You record The Super Bowl so you don't miss the latest episode of JLU.

    You mistakenly call your wife Diana.

    You then correct yourself by saying, "Sorry honey, I meant Shayera".

    Your kids think 911 will get them the Teen Titans.
