19. Your "official house rules" now match the original rulebook in length, breadth and detail.

20. When a chipmunk chatters angrily at you because you've come too close to its tree, you mutter, "Yeah, yeah...you talk pretty tough for someone with only one HP."

21. When your wife accidentally runs over a chipmunk, you resist the urge to explain how this would be modeled by the GURPS collision rules because you know she will kill you...but you still do the math in your head

22. You're interpolating the novel you're reading according to your current game system (GURPS of course);

23. You feel you have achieved a new level of enlightenment due to your understanding of RL in game terms, eg Geeks and Jocks, whatever their point value, have merely spent their points on different traits: "it don matter if you're black or white. Oohoo!".

Did that just recently, in fact. The related worlds of His Dark Materials make a great skerry for an Infinite Worlds game.

Hell, I've confused mundanes by referring to some people being built on more points than others...

24. When a supposedly mundane hero in a movie makes a successful series of miraculous dodges/parries/crack-shots and you wonder idly how many 3's and 4's they probably rolled in the last combat sequence alone.

25. Occasionally, when you meet someone, you find yourself mentally statting them out as a character.

26. "HP" becomes a part of your everyday vocabulary.

27. You have dreams about your gaming sessions.
