When you expect your front door to automatically open when in its proximity.
Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.

I read a news story about sea birds eating plastic because it smells like food and I thought the sea birds needed to have modules installed and equipped with a small tote bag so they'd pick the fishy smelling plastic, put it in their totes and bring it to a recycling center for delicious healthy treats.

For lunch I went to an Indian buffet and made inserter noises picking up my plate and loading it with various rice and curries.

I canceled a complicated home improvement and was shocked when suddenly my yard and the street and even the yards of nearby homes filled with a colorful geometric pattern made up of nails, lumber, pipes, tiles, etc.

You're standing next to the printer at work and think "If I put a beacon there, there and there then I won't have to wait as long for this to print".

  • You're in the market for real estate somewhere where there's not too many trees.
  • You assume the term "bullet train" refers to their tendency to kill pedestrians.
  • When shopping for appliances you insist on disassembling the floor models to see if they used red or green circuits.

When you create a Perpetual motion machine in your dreams using belts to lift weights to a higher elevation and then capturing that energy as they fall. The whole time you are doing this you never question where the belts are getting their energy from

When you can't focus at school/work and all you can think about are the ratios at witch you will need to build things.

When you run out of glass in your car so you pick up sticks from the side of the road

When you automate the process of automating

You're a Wankel. Sorry, I take it back: I don't think they're available in the CX-5.

You know you're playing Factorio (and KSP) too much when it seems so obvious that the best plan for Apollo 13 was to land on the moon and build a new rocket from scratch to get back. Or this happens...

When you find yourself idly thinking about how much it'd take to launch your goldfish into space...
...
When your train is late and you're wondering if a roundabout further up the tracks has the traffic deadlocked...
...
When you're idly wondering how much it'd cost to put rocket fuel in your car. That sweet, sweet accelleration bonus...
