Not sure if someone didn't mention something similar yet but here goes (real thing too):

You play Wesnoth for a few hours (big MP match) then go to sleep only to find out that when you close your eyes, you see shiny hexagons and unit life indicators. It fades in some time tho :) (yeah I should probably lower the contrast)

855. You complain to the makers of Sauerkirsch-Wodka about how they could harm cute and cuddly saurians to make a beverage.

856. In real life, you commonly refer to luck as a mysterious "RNG" in which you must explain to your friends and family what that is.

848. You realised that the name "Lich" sounds like "Lick" and unoriginal and you call it "Liche". (True)
857: You remember that it is pronounced litch because you looked it up on dictionary.com and heard the pronounciation

861: When you run Disk Cleanup, and instead of the usual process, it says "So you want to clear up disk space, eh? Well, how about REMOVING ALL OF THOSE THOUSANDS OF SAVES AND REPLAYS THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY NOT EVER USE AGAIN IN YOUR LIFE, FIRST? When you do that, THEN you can talk to me about clearing up disk space."

I'm back for now, I might get started on some work again.

862: When you tend to know people by their avatars, and after 36 hours with no sleep, you see this thread and blurrily wonder why Thanatos is talking to himself. Then you realize Thanatos and A Guy were having a discussion.

With all seriousness I thought that was the reason for avatars, so that you could tell who is talking without even looking at the name.
