Let's see how many original, funny ones we can come up with smile.gif

1. You can accurately remember Geddy Lee's birthday faster than you can your own
2. You can accurately spell and pronounce Zivojinovich
3. You go nuts over all Rush references, no matter how minor
4. You go nuts over non-existant Rush references (e.g. "she said 'territory'! or an alphabet poster reading WwXxYyZz)
5. "Geddy's voice is just an acquired taste"

feel free to add yes.gif ...I'm not going to use up all my ideas on the first post...

GREAT IDEA!

You know you're a Rush fan when...

1. You've memorized Alex's, Geddy's, and Neil's birthdays, but don't even know your own friends/familys birthdays.

2. You get excited over soup.

3. You know what a shrimp cot is.

4. You frequently quote Rush lyrics/songs

5. You think jazz is weird.

6. You mention Rush at least 15 times day.

7. You always want to kick someone's ass if they make fun of Geddy in ANY way.

8. You want to have an airplane made out of beef.

9. You wish the alphabet ended not in only "y, z" but "y, y, z."

10. You smiled, laughed, and shook your head yes to every one of these.

It's pretty easy to say them at the same time: July 29th cool.gif

Let's see...

1. When it's somebody's turn in a board game with dice, you say "Roll the Bones!" every time.
2. When you're in a huge room that echoes, you say "Test for Echo!!!"
3. If you go to a magician just to hear them say Presto
4. If you accidently call the brand of your soap "Caress of Steel"
5. You freak out at anything related to the number 2112
6. When you talk about monarchy, A Farewell To Kings immediately comes to mind.
7. If you know what Neil says at the beginning of Alien Shore
8. If you can name all studio Rush albums forwards and backwards without faltering.
9. You lose a pet and your Rush collection in a fire and you cry about your Rush collection more than the pet.
10. You spend more than 5 hours a day on TRF or Counterparts
11.  If you go to a Blue Jays game just to see Geddy
12. You giggle when somebody says "I'm doing the best I can"
13. You accidentally call Behind Blue Eyes "Beneath, Between, and Behind Blue Eyes"
14. You can mouth the narration to The Necromancer
15. You can mouth the narration to Double Agent.
16. You frantically look in your crayons for The Color of Right
17. When you do the Limbo at a party, you play Limbo on repeat.
18. You start humming Turn The Page when you're supposed to turn the page when you're reading a book in unison in class
19. You start humming Between The Wheels when you see roadkill
20. You think of the song Tom Sawyer before you think of the book.

You know you're a Rush fan when...

1. You buy movies just because they have a Rush song in them.

2. You get excited when you see a lock and key.

3. You'd ask someone for a roadmap to Jupiter.

4. You've found yourself being stared at for air drumming to a Rush song.

I do that EVERY song ph34r.gif

1. When a Menard's commercial comes on and they sing the jingle, "Save big money at Menard's!" You suddenly sing the entire Big Money song, rests included, a capella in perfect pitch.
2. You get angry when you see "power windows" on a car description, but it doesn't come with the CD
3. You often wonder if you dog would rather be a tortoise from Galapagos or a span of geological time
4. When you see Before and After shots, you immediately listen to the entire self-titled Rush album.
5. You miss your overnight shift just to watch Replay X3 all the way through
6. You immediately think of the album Presto when you see a rabbit.
7. You now suggest your kid kicks a skull instead of a can, just for a good photo opportunity.

1. You own every single damn rush DVD, even though it's the same thing about ten times through (and it's good each time!)

2. You picked up bass because of Geddy Lee, and then realized how f***ing hard it is, especially his licks.

3. You start playing air drums to a Rush tune, and everyone else thinks you are crazy (chances are, you ARE crazy)

4. You sit and watch each cd in the TRF banner and can predict each album that's coming up, along with the year the album came out

5. You used the song "Beneath, Between, and Behind" to help you memorize your prepositions in school

6. Geddy's voice isn't that bad, is it?

7. You have EVERY single Rush DVD sitting next to your computer, and all of them are on your iPod

8. You drive two hours JUST to see the three guys on lawn seats

9. You can identify a Rush song/show simply by the guitars/basses Geddy and Alex are playing

10. You rejoice when you go to Rush concerts to find out that you aren't the only people who do these things mentioned

11. Neil is the best drummer,  hands down (he is!). And no bassist will ever out-bass Geddy (they won't!).

12. Any minute reference to Rush makes your day

13. You wonder how the hell they make those sounds on the records, only to figure it out when you see them live

14. You sing the instrumentals, just like the crowd in Rio

15. You have more Rush on your iPod than you do videos (Rush videos count as Rush, not videos)

16. You are listening to Rush as you read/type this and are playing air instruments/singing between points. Crap, this thread is distracting me from watching the Pass in full screen!
