12) You are out of sync with the people around you. First your sleeping pattern adjusted to American hours (if European) then it adjusted to Chinese hours.

I don't mine, so #1 is out for me.

I've never really had a consistent sleep pattern to start with, so #12 (or #13 depending on which list you look at above) is out too.

Other than that, I think I can check off all the rest of the indicators from my list.

15)  At work, you find yourself running into the restroom to hide the fact that you must check quotes, charts,  and forum postings, numerous times during the day.

16) Got a sudden urge to run out and buy a larger screened tablet (s) for checking your numerous charts and online data.

17)  Get an eerie feeling we are entering a new paradigm of  bitcoin "haves and "have-nots".

All of 'em except for #1 and total forum log time (as most of the time I'm reading threads while logged out). Bitcoins are my life. People who don't know bitcoin might think I have "no life" ahah!

18) You already know what "From the desk of Tom Williams" stands for.

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

1.) Your mining rig has doubled as a heater in winter.

I don't mine.


2.) You met a local bitcoin seller in person at a Starbucks and paid in cash before you became established at an exchange.

No.


3.) You stayed up 3 hours past your bedtime just to get continued endorphin rushes while watching the bitcoinity graph flash "All Time High!"

I usually set the alarm clock every 90 minutes to take a quick look, then sleep again.


4.) You have a serious distaste for the word "tulips".

Not at all!


5.) You know the exchange rate for the Yuan.

Changes too quickly for one to be able to say "it's 5k right now". You'd had to check to be sure.


6.) You've used the term "you've been goxed".

Yup, in 2011 even.


7.) You knew what DPR stood for before the Silk Road bust.

Yes.


8.) You doubled your investment in 3 weeks and wondered if there was anything you could have done more efficiently.

Everyone did/does this Tongue.


9.) You've kicked yourself numerous times for selling bitcoins below $100.

Yes. I had to sell at $12-$15.


10.) You put more time in reading up on bitcoins than you put in doing homework.

I've never done any homework in my life Cheesy.

I used to do this when I was investing in the stock market. Now when my coworkers see my  bitcoin/altcoin charts on my computer they think I'm checking my retirement fund.
