You Know You're Addicted To Knight Rider When...

Post by Sith » Wed Aug 25, 2004 1:34 pm

...Every car you see whilst driving, you visualise with a red scanner.

...you talk to your wrist watch when no-one is looking.

...you believe wearing a leather jacket in summer is cool.

...you grow an afro, and excessive chest hair.

...you expect your car door to open for you.

...you confuse cruise control with Auto Cruise...

...and subsequently have to explain to the police officer why you were asleep at the wheel.

...whilst stuck behind lorries, you try to judge whether you can clear it with the turbo.

...at croquet matches you expect to see Devon Miles.

...you look for Bonnie at your local garage...

...and find her...

...but she's an alsatian. Who doesn't like you.

...you play the KR theme at parties, expecting people to "get down"...

...but they just "get high" instead.

...you have long, meaningful conversations with your car...

...then nearly crash when you realise you left the speaker phone on to your mother, who had listened to your entire debate on the "hard" issue of your sex life.

...you wish your home was a black semi.

...your interpretation of "Super Pursuit Mode" results in a hefty speeding fine.

...when a plane flies overhead, you
expect KITT to pass by your window.

...convinced your car is indestructible, you enter a demolition derby...

...and spend the next morning trying to convince your insurance company that you were involved in "multiple hit and runs".

...you answer the phone with "yo Devon!".

...you try and convince your clubbing friends that 80s music is cool. And fail.

...at dinner parties, when asked what you do, you reply that you work for the "Foundation for Law And Government" (with a wry smile)


Here is a dangerous world. The world, of the Knight Rider fan. 8)

If only they knew what we go through... ;)

lol dude
same topic is going on at knightrider.nl 8)
I have some too:

- You talk to your wrist watch and say: KITT, I need you buddy
- You constantly play the KR theme and your car and you hear the sentence: One man can make a difference
- You confuse the rear window heating button with the turbo boost button
- You demand that your friends call you Michael, although that isn't your name
- You name your children Bonnie and April
- You put on large sunglasses
- You dream of a real replica car, and you constantly surft the net looking to buy one, but you realize that it's too expensive
- When you leave your car you say: "Keep your scanners peeled"

Some of that is like me. Like one time in my drama club play in school i had 2 grow out my hair 4 the part because it was a 60s play and once i did i wanted 2 get a perm but i wound up not getting 1. Also 1 time in the summer i wore my leather jacket so muc and i had those huge aviator sun glasses but it is fun!
Michael wouldnt one woman be sufficient?

You know you're addicted to Knight Rider when...

The only appeal of the sitcom Boy Meets World is that Mr. Feeny is K.I.T.T.

When the only car you ever wanted to won was a 1980's firebird with T-Tops. And then you finally get one and want to turn it into a Knight Industries Two Thousand.

ive got some

- you call you girlfriend Stevie, and then wonder why she slapped and left you.

- you try to ram some random car that looks like yours, and then try telling the cops you thought it was the inferior prototype of your and you had to stop it.

- meeting David Hasslhof and calling him Michael, and asking him where KITT is

- trying to back into a big black semi, crushing your car, and then saying that bonnie forgot to put the ramp down.

ROTFL! :twisted: :lol: These are TOO Funny! But alas, I have a confession to make:

- You name your Pontaic 6000 (or other car) "Kitt"
- You tinker with it a lot, pretending to be Bonnie.
- You paint your car black and make it into a "Knighted Ride"
- You put something to do with "Knight" on your car or a chess piece or both.
- You spend your time watching the Knight Rider Season 1 DVD set and not working like you should have been.
- You actually have dreams about KITT
- You watch science and technology news to see how close they are to creating a real life KITT.
- You try to convince Pontiac to bring back the firebird - with KITT's nose and scanner!
- You spend time wondering what scanner to buy for your car and if it'll fit.
- You research artificial intelligence and speach recognition in hopes of some day making your car talk back and have a real personality like KITT had.

Ok, I'm bad. :twisted:

Sometimes when I'm in a rush, be it running or driving, in my mind I think "Super Pursuit Mode!" and imagine the panel opening, the button pressing, and the sequence with all the gadgets popping out of KITT. Whether I get to my destination any faster is a matter of debate.

You're an artist and you spend all day sketching the Trans Am, the way I do!

You still want a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am.

You know you're addicted to Knight Rider when...
-someone cuts you off in traffic and you:
-blurt out"All right,buddy!It's Micro-Jammer time!".
-instinctively reach for the Turbo Boost and all you get is a blast of hot air from the heater on a 95 degree day.
-instinctively reach for the Super Pursuit Mode and recieve a 20 degree wind blast from hitting the convertible roof switch on a winter morning.
-You stub your index finger raw from tapping where the passenger-side ejector switch should be due to an annoying person(spouse,sibling,inlaw,etc.)riding shotgun.
If only I had a nickel for every time someone cut me off on the parkway and wished for a Turbo-Boost or Micro-jammer...

:lol: Yesterday I was coming home from the grocery store and waiting at a light to make a right turn (here you can turn right on red after stopping completely). I barely even stopped and this SUV starts beeping at me to keep going. I didn't want to pull out as there were cars on the way and so I waited, with the idiot beeping away at me. When I did turn, he did, pulls past me and starts swearing at me. Man, I would have loved to have my Kitt talking so he could yell back: "Kiss my tailpipe!" :twisted:

- you bought a scanner for your 82 trans am and suddenly realize that you don't have a 82 trans am

Oh! OH! Here's one. You know you're addicted to "Knight Rider" When...

...You have more than one KITT model, each built up to represent him in various episodes (including the '57 Chevy version from KR2000).
