Have you ever stopped yourself from crossing over to the darkside,is there a thin line between being a fan and being pityful ?

Asked by Pretty_Lilly (4655points) April 10th, 2010

I enjoy watching the TV show “Frasier”.
One day,I was bored and decided to go to an online forum and see if some discrepancies in the show were addressed ,,,{how come,he has a 4 hour talk show at a AM radio station but he can afford the lifestyle of a millionaire,etc,etc}
I not only got my answers but much more,,,,,there was a guy there who had created professional quality blueprints and a floor plan of Frasier’s apt,some others had written detailed stories and biographies of secondary characters {How Daphne ended up in Seattle,Roz entire life story,what they did when they were not being portrait in the show’s story}
Then I realized “WTF” am I doing here,these people need to get a life and to make things worst,I’m actually spending time ready this cr*p !
Are hardcore Sci-Fi fans that obsessed as well ?
Have you ever come across this type of people in real life ?

Yep. Many times they are fun, either to mock or learn from. Either way. Look at the people who speak Klingon (and look at the published Klingon dictionaries.)

Oh god yes….. have you never seen pictures of sci-fi conventions. I haven’t gone entirely crazy in this way. However, I do have a thing for getting slightly obsessed with the bad guy. Last one was Heath Ledger’s The Joker…. I even bourght a replica pair of gloves :)
I also love Jason Voorhees….. such a cool dude!
