Everything you own - and I mean EVERYTHING - has a clip-in loop attached.

You can make an Anything into a Big Wall Anything by simply adding a clip-in loop:

 big wall sleeping bag
 big wall bivi sack
 big wall coffee press
 big wall ghetto blaster
 big wall microwave oven

You discuss better ways to hang up a stove. You bought climbing shoes for your son before he was even born. You got married because she owns a really nice rack, and it isn't boobs.

Made me flashback to one of my climbing partners who was a dancer at Crazy Horse and..Vegasized..

Wasn't thinking and honestly, innocently asked if I could hang my nuts on her rack (I didn't need them that pitch)

Facepalm....

Good posts so far!

it was a good tread about climbing dreams, but I can not find it.
Anyway, climbing dreams is important symptom of addiction

You are going to spend the next 6 months living like a vagrant to chase the cold weather, which just so happens to be in the meth-ier areas. oh, and you skipped out on college/good relationships/security so you can fail on routes that were put up before you were born.

yup, I'm looking kinda dumb these days : /

if you must know what route is being pantomimed by that monkey across the lot.

... and your companion languishes while you approach for confirmation,
thereafter bearing witness to a sumo session of beta exchange

Dumb thread. Like being on a climbing forum isn't evidence enough that you are addicted to climbing.

you get together with a fantastic new girl friend, and the first thing your friends all ask her is whether she likes to rock climb (if the answer is 'no', they roll their eyes knowingly)

You literally just stepped off a plane from a killer road trip, aren't even home yet, and want to go back already.

Your significant other gives you sh!t because you spend more time posting to your live trip report than replying to her love notes on Facebook.............................

Fvck....
