You're flying a real two seater Aquila A211 and in your mind you have just snuck up behind a 109, you aim and press that button on top of your stick shouting "GOTCHA YOU LAZY GERMAN BASTARD!!" 

...only then realizing you've pushed the radio transmit button

You apply for a mail order Russian bride, just so you can get her to work as voice talent on the new AI speech mod you are making.

Enjoying a post-coital cigarette, your wife asks "why do you always shout Horrido?"

 

was she involved prior to your 'fag'?

 

There appears to be a trend here

when you start using the hood ornament on your VVS lend-lease Buick as a gun sight to hunt down all the Luftwaffe BMW's and Mercedes during your daily commute

 

When also on your daily commute, you pass slower vehicles as fast as possible, not because you are annoyed at having to slow down, but because if you stay behind him he will get you with his tail gun for sure

 

...and those are just the driving related ones!

I assume you're still playing IL2 and she has her own.... ummmm... 'toy' and you wonder if she's playing the old IL2 because her 'toy' sounds like the 109 in IL2:FB.

I actually knew I was playing too much WWII flying sims (DCS, CLoD, BOS) when every car I drove past on the road was a Me109, a Spitty, a G50, a Blenny or a Yak. I couldn't quite get to call them by their real model names again and it was kinda scary.

When you run to the store for groceries and a good looking Blond says, " what is that on your hat?" , and you realize your TIR Clip is still there.  I calmly said, while lifting my hat and exposing my bald head, " It is a solar hair  growth promotion hat" , and slowly turn and walk away.

When explaining to people your hobby and squad, and they don't get it... then you have to use the comparison of, "It's like being in a recreational softball team -- only on computers."

 

"Oh!" they say, clearly still not getting it...

 

... or they get it, "Ah, you're a gamer," and you get offended, because combat flight simmers are NOT gamers, but simmers and we are *so* much more "mature," than mere gamers.

I usually compare what I'm doing to what historical military reenactors are doing, because most people has seen that on TV or at Rennaissance fairs etc. and the response is usually: "Well, at least you're keeping that [Edited] on the computer."

How are ya Heywood... I know the feeling on that job thing... been out of work since April..

its going on 3 years here...First I was calling it a hiatus...a break from 40 straight years of labor - then I called it involuntary retirement...now - I'm just swimming in the ocean and riding my bike to stay in shape

and working odd jobs for cash.

its a good thing to save money and when a company offers profit sharing my advice is to sign up for it

the best part is that my grand daughter was born about the same time as my halftime started so I've been able to be involved almost daily with her life... thats all that matters to me.

 

Sorry you had to make the edit BtW...

 

How you doin' Bear?

That's how it started? Huh.
Anyway...

I am leaning to drive and I asked my Dad "What's the optimal RPM level?" He stared at me and asked if I was serious...(I still don't know what the optimal RPM level for the car is BTW)

Ask him at which altitude you need to change the supercharger gear!

That horrible feeling when you can't answer the door when you're in the middle of a dogfight, and then later find out it was your wife trying to get in the house.

... When I find myself saying `inverted` instead of `upside-down` (which I do ALL the time now), shake my head when the wrong WW2 aircraft are depicted in war docus or anywhere else, and I`m always looking up when I hear anything that sounds like it has a Merlin engine/s...

 

Actually that started from the original IL2 1946....

A couple of weeks ago I was out for a night on the town with some friends (Yes, apparently that still happens after you've had your second child) and I noticed one of my friends trying to put the moves on a girl, who had been flirting with another of our friends, who had gone to use the bathroom.

 

I grabbed him by the shoulder saying: "Hey mate. Quit shoulder-shooting". He ofc. had no idea what I was talking about.

 

Neither of my two friends got credited with a kill that night btw.

Brilliant story, Finkeren :biggrin:

 

My addiction culminates in a) always looking all over the sky whenever an engine is heard, b) growing anxious if I fail to locate the contact, c) continued distress if I cannot identify the type or markings once the contact is found, and finally d) looking over my shoulder and doing the good old head on a swivel in the middle of a busy street without noting the oddness of it all.

As long as you don't remind your friends to "Call your ins and outs to avoid shoulder shooting" :lol: ...
