Nobody posts in the old one anymore, so I made a new one.


You know you're a Rush fan when:

1. You can recite every Rush album in order, with the years of release. (I do this all the time and it annoys the heck out of my friends.)

2. You're in a car and you see a license plate that says YYZ. You freak out and scare the driver so much she swerves the car into the next lane.

3. You start writing a diary about the election, but end up writing about Rush half the time.

4. 9/12 is more important to you than 9/11.

5. You have to fight not to squeal when you realize your friend has a Zoom background of a red Ferrari (a Barchetta is a kind of Ferrari).

6. You actually squeal when you realize your friend has a Zoom background of a red Ferrari.

7. You watch The Twilight Zone, own every book by Ayn Rand, and have read "A Nice Morning Drive."

8. You take a chemistry class and sing the song Chemistry throughout the whole thing.

9. You convince your teacher to let you write a book report on Rush lyrics instead of an actual book.

10. You're late for work/school because you stayed up half the night listening to Rush.

11. You are shocked when your friend turns off YYZ after the part with the Morse code (you made them look up what -.---.----.. meant).

12. You're reading this.


Most of these are based on things that actually happened to me.

Someone else please post in this so I don't look silly. Let's get some funny ones!

It`s true. I once bought a car because "Jump" was playing in the showroom...

I must not be a very big Rush fan, because it took me a couple of weeks to figure out what the heck you were talking about.

16. You connect years in your mind with Rush albums. (Like if, say, you come across an old newspaper from 1991 and you're immediately like "Roll the Bones!")

HAhaha my 50th post was about Roll The Bones and the "Restless Young Rushmantic" picture is of the kid kicking the skull! I swear that wasn't on purpose!

When looking for something else about Rush on Youtube, the automatic suggestions are composed of Rush stuff.
From before.
From the other times you looked on Youtube for...Rush stuff :)
(And there is so much of it!).

When you're at a REO Speedwagon concert about 7-8 years ago and afterwards you realize you liked Freewill when it was played over the PA before the show better than any of the songs the band performed that night and on top of it, you like REO.
