    1. You have Badminton Central not only as a bookmark but also as a Quick Link on your toolbar, a Live Bookmark on your Mozilla Browser and a Shortcut in your iPhone.

    2. You check Badminton Central for new topics more frequently than you check your e-mail.

    3. You download more badminton tournament videos than any other type of videos.

    4. You subscribe to unlimited internet access just to download badminton videos.

    5. You subscribe to a faster internet access to download the badminton videos faster.

    6. Your fail to wake up at 8 o'clock to reach the office on a weekday but you can wake up at 7 o'clock on weekends to reach the badminton court earlier to do warm ups.

    7. On weekends you play from morning till night with different groups...creating a new term called chain-player.

    8. When you go to any badminton court, there will always be someone else in some other court that knows you by name.

    9. Your budget is divided into 2 categories...Badminton..... and Everything Else.

    10. You are planning your child's badminton training regiment now even though you don't have a girl friend yet.

    Please feel free to add in more points....

    All so true, but this one is the most outrageous. :D Good work!
