...you're browsing through cable channel menus and as you notice the movie titles you try to remember if they were released on Laserdisc

...you're running on a treadmill and as certain times come up on the clock, they make you think of Laserdisc player model numbers (ie: 406, 604, 704, 909, 919, 939, 959, 1010, etc.)

...you're talking movies with a friend or friends and when their favorite movie is mentioned you try to recall if you have it on Laserdisc (bonus points if you actually say you have it on Laserdisc)

...a friend of yours posts a music video that they like on social media and you comment that you have the video on Laserdisc

...you find a music/thrift shop that sells old records and you HAVE to check to see if they sell Laserdiscs

...you find a used electronics shop and you HAVE to check to see if they have Laserdisc players

Feel free to add more!

One that happens to me is:

You're watching a movie and wondering when the side change is coming, only to realize that you're watching tv.

You know you've been into LaserDiscs for (far) too long when -

You have a eureka moment when looking through a bin of discount dvd's and exclaim "Hey, I have that at home on LASERDISC !"

When you've filled 20 Ikea Kallax cubes with discs and you try to hide from the wife that you just bought another Kallax shelf

When you're bringing in more discs than groceries on a weekly basis

Also when dealing with all the LP mailers becomes an issue on a daily basis....

I guess that applies to vinyl collectors too...
