86.  The 12-3 cable you ran to the shed is getting warm to the touch, so you head to home depot to buy another 100' of 10-3.

88.  see above

89.  You realize you'd be willing to shave your head like Valdimir (or do other severe things) for an embarrassingly low amount of bitcoins.  This makes you think, "What kind of person am I becoming?"

98 a) Your local news station issues an announcement asking everyone to conserve electricity... and mentions you by name.

98 b) Your child receives a failing grade on a project called "my family's carbon footprint" because the teacher insists he/she couldn't possibly understand the concept based on the results.

100. You need to find out how to block DDoS attacks by other miners (and pools).
101. You need a 10Gbit/sec pipe to your home so that it can act as a backup DC for your pool servers.
102. If your miners go down for a day the next block difficulty will be lower.
103. You start looking for places around the planet with the lowest KWh costs.
104. You start looking for really cold countries to setup an outdoor air cooled mining facility.
105. You really do wonder which countries match the criteria for 103 and 104, and which would be the cheapest factoring in PUE.
106. You wonder if a nearby lake could act as a heat sink, but are still a bit concerned about possibly slow cooking all the fish alive.
107. You wonder how you can turn heat into an additional revenue stream. And begin by googling Low-temperature cooking and Sous-vide.
108. You wonder if you could ever mass market electric Bitcoin radiators.
109. You wonder if you have said too much about your addiction by taking part in this thread.

There is my 10, I hope at least one of them made you smile.

110. Your underground basement is actually hot.
111. You have checked your hashrates while naked and felt no shame.
112. You start taking breaks with the smokers as an excuse to check your uptime and mining yield.
113. You look forward to the top of every hour when your deepbit balance gets updated.
114. Your new favorite pasta is rig-atoni.
115. Instead of fantasizing about winning the lottery you fantasize about having 10k+ coins
116. You have wondered about the marketability of a wireless photo frame for your wall that displays your hashrate and coin balance.

117.  You read an entire book about HVAC, another about Electrical, and seriously consider studying for the licensing exam even though you learned everything just to power and cool your rigs throughout your home.

106:  Formula 1 team McLaren operate wind tunnel, and apparently that generates a lot of heat.  They use a man made lake as a heat sink. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLaren_Technology_Centre
