Your wife asks you about something and the answer sends you to thinking about projects for various guns.

when your driving and your tunes give you a great idea for a way to modify a marker... drastically.

when you dream about ways to modify markers (ydna and his shocker dreambolt)

when you see some modified marker on the interwebz and say to yourself "I can do better" when you own all of 0 of the parts needed.

When you look at a gun and instantly wonder how well the parts would fit in other guns and such.

You look at your domestic short hair cat and it gives you an idea on how to paint a marker.

When you go to collage to become a mechanical designer so you can design markers and parts. then buy machine tools to teach yourself how to make them. then teach yourself master cam to learn how to program the machine to make them, get a few patents and start going through the process of trying to start a business.

I am almost guilty of this. I also have taken CNC Setup, Operation, and Programing classes. I learned Mastercam, Taught myself SolidWorks(then helped the professor teach SolidWorks) Learned GD&T, developed a design that may get 3-4 cases of a 13ci. I just need money for the patents and I'm golden.

I dream with 3d modeling software in my head and come up with parts to gun's that I didn't even know existed. Sad thing is, they worked.

Your wife tells you not to put a marker you painted in the oven and you do it anyway while she is at work.

when you realize, after looking in your subscribed threads folder, that 'Voided' is spelled wrong and didn't notice it when you first posted.

When the term "if it broke don't fix it" becomes more like "if it ain't broke... take it apart and figure out how to make it better" (which will of course sometimes lead to breaking it.. thus better justifying further work)

-When I plan how to use offcuts of aluminum for marker mods at work while I'm writing the cutting list for a job.

-When I stuff up a job at work because I'm thinking more about circuit diagrams for a marker board when I should have been concentrating on my payed employment.

-When my lunch break is a time to put all that planning into practice rather than eating.

I really should just get a job at a paintball shop.

while you are sleeping and you have a dream that solves the problem you are having... and it works when you wake up! and i am guilty of trolling the b/s/t threads and craigslist constantly looking for markers that don't work for cheap. and when the ref's at your local field send noobs or others towards your truck to have your marker fixed.
