The Cosmos
When you lock yourself in your room for several days to do an Earth-Luna-Earth mission. You only eat freeze-dried food, or, if you have a mini-fridge and microwave-oven, maybe you could have (semi) real food. You never leave your room during the "mission", not even to use the toilet. all windows are covered, and the lights turned off. You never pause or use time acceleration.

I sincerely hope nobody here has ever attempted that. :lol:

When you've learned more about astrophysics from applying them in Orbiter than reading them somewhere.
When both your desktop and school laptop have lots of Orbiter stuff on them!
When you learned about C++ from the Orbiter-Forum and applied the concepts you learned to your Java class and made an A on your midterm grade!
When you want to install a bookcase behind your desk chair so you can turn around like the guys in Mission Control do to reach for notebooks and suuch.
When you change your ham radio callsign so you can say Delta Glider for the phonetics (example, KG4DG is kilo golf four delta glider) [I haven't done this...yet!]
When you try to fly a 747 in FS2004 with numpad-2,8,4,6,1,3!

Guilty on those two! :lol: My A380 addon was actually developed on my school computer alone!

When you see a meteorite burn up in the atmosphere you know how fast its going and what Angle its going (retro-Grade or Prograde) Extremely guilty, I plead the 5th.
