You constantly yearn to have the ability to employ an "invisible list" in real life. You even go so far as to physically try to right click people to add them. (It didn't work.)
You've taken experimental drugs to grow a third arm, which might help increase your speed in replying to messages. Unfortunately, it made you grow a third nostril.
Your typing speed has continuously progressed after thousands of ICQ chats... to a record of 249 words per minute.
You leave an indent in your chair after your usual 8 straight hours of "ICQ'ing". You're cat got stuck in this crater you created.
You can't remember when the last time was that you ate a meal anywhere other than in front of the computer.
You can't remember when the last time was that you ate a meal.
You've written repeated letters to the government requesting that your social security number be changed to your ICQ number. Your last one included a death threat.
You wake up at 3 a.m. and have to use the bathroom, and after you finish, you take a quick swing by the computer to check for messages...You find over 300 waiting for you.
You've had over 100 contacts online at one time.
You held detailed conversations with all 100...simultaneously.
You've created a shrine of worship to the makers of ICQ. You claim to be their "biggest fan" and have provoked fights with others who have claimed the same title.
You've asked your "real life" friends to refer to you by your ICQ nickname. You immediately broke off the friendship with anyone that refused, citing "unresolvable differences" as the reason why.
You refer to the period of your life before you downloaded ICQ as the "pre-ICQ era". Back then you went outside of your house.
Your love life consists of sending "love notes" and the occassional steamy chat.
You've tried to convince your grandparents or older parents to get ICQ because talking on the phone is "old fashioned". They asked if a "computer" is a new kind of calculator.
You suffer severe bouts of depression every time you see someone sign offline.
Your internet phone bill matches your ICQ number.
You make not one, but two web pages about signs of being addicted to ICQ.
Send this page to everyone you consider a friend, even the person that sent this site to you. If they get it back from you, they will know that you're a true friend for life. Help spread the friendships built on ICQ! As long as you're making friends, you're never using ICQ too much!!
