    You know you've been playing too much Victoria II when...

    Your friend brings in food she says she bought in Vienna, and you think "So that's why the labels are in South German..."

    You print out lots of maps of your conquests...

    You'd rather play Victoria II than talk to the girl you like...

    You know the exact location of such obscure places as Neuschel, Meerut, Tuer, Brno, and Murzuk...

    You check the PDM forums every hour for an update.

    The only things you ever learned about German history are through playing Prussia or Austria.

    Speaking of that, was there a real life SGF, or is that just a fictional southern counterpart of the NGF?

    You try to figure out how the current war in Afghanistan would be modeled ingame.

    You wonder why Germany doesn't declare war with its free acquire core cb's on Poland, Denmark, France, and Russia.

    You wonder what the average Consciousness of your family is.

    You look at a map of eastern Europe and it looks all wrong.

    - When you begin planning your conquest of Europe in your free time.

    - When you begin explaining Victoria 2 game mechanics to your family.

    - When you begin reading AAR's instead of books.

    - When knocking the UK from the #1 spot is worthy of celebration.

    You refer to contries and cities by their Victorian age names

    - When, while going bed, you are still planning a SP invasion of Egypt before UK sarts influencing it.
    - When you see that a Country is allied with Sokoto and you start laughing

    When you begin talking to yourself as if you were actually the leader of the country you are playing.

    * When you know the world map of 1836 by heart, and most people barely know the world map in 2012.
    * When you are surprised when people have not heard of stuff like Austria-Hungary, Congress of Vienna, Franco-Prussian war etc.
    * When you know more about WW1 than most people know about WW2.

    Some of this is also a good combination of Victoria 2 and Wikipedia, wich leads me to the last point:
    *You spend the the same amount of time on Wikipedia researching the stuff you played through in Victoria 2, as you spent on Victoria 2 in the first place.

    When you are able to answer historical trivia questions only because you've played so much...
    This man, whose famous "Redshirts" helped to... "Garibaldi!!!" (everyone else) Who the hell is that?

    When you know exactly what empire colonized which African country... (That is, until you've played a game where you colonized Africa yourself...)
    Sorry, Serbia did not colonize the Gold Coast...

    When you find yourself wondering what POP type you would be...

    When you are dumbfounded when you hear the USA has a budget deficit...
    We've got the strongest economy in the world, I mean, just raise the tariff slider and lower the military spending already!

    When you wonder what percent civilized various countries are...
    I'd say Mauritania is only 30%. They still have slavery, you know. Pretty soon they'll have some nasty reactionary rebels on their hands...

    When you wonder why Austria hasn't had a cultural union with Germany already...
    They'd be an accepted culture, too, so you can recruit gaurds!
