...you get a geeky thrill from riding the U2 line on the german rail system.

Caught the U2 into downtown Munich yesterday. Even my brother, who's a huge U2 fan, rolled his eyes when he saw that I was excited by that.

 Funny! Once I was riding thee bus and talking to 2 friends. We were talking about something on youtube, I made a comment, then one of my friends responded something like "Why is everything U2 to you?!" because he thought that I had said "U2" when I had, in fact, said "Youtube" !

Awesome! This makes me think of another good one:
My fellow U2-obsessed friend and I were in Berlin (where the U2 metro goes through Zoo Station - awesome! We had our picture taken beside the sign!). Anyway, they were doing construction on the U2 line, so they had all these posters up to let people know there would be service interruption...and the posters featured a photo of one of those little lego men with a hard hat and construction overalls, and his overalls said U2 on the front of them. My friend and I actually had my sister-in-law go to the metro information booth and ask the guy (in German) if there was anywhere we could get a little lego U2 man! (Sadly, we were not successful)

...When the kids are off to school and hubby closes the garage door to go to work,
the first sound that comes up in your head is the Bass of Adam's guitar.. the intro to
Bullet the Blue Sky...
And then your day starts..

...you lay down with headphones on, just to have a moment of rest. You're not listening to anything, but you know it's the only way to get a break. This way you can perfectly ignore everything and everyone, yet still hear your other half say "Kids stop talking to mom, can't you see she is in her U2 world."

when a U2 song comes on and a classroom of high school students all stop talking so you can listen.

(Which I guess also falls under the category "you know you're a respected teacher when".)

It was very peculiar! I was dreaming that my friends started playing it in the car, and I heard the opening guitar, and when I woke up it was very solidly in my head!  ;D

You know you're a U2 fan when you reference these conversations in real life: "Oh! I was just talking about that in the forum the other day..."

When you go on ebay and look at rare copies of U2-3 and drool and wish you had $500

you've had a copy of U2-3 since 1985 and borrowed money to pay your rent and purchased groceries with a credit card rather than selling that copy of U2-3.
