    You're addicted to the International Dental forum if:

    1. You know who the non Indians are.

    2. If you're non Indian, you're already familiar with Indian names.

    3. As soon as a newbie posts: "I gave part 1 in December", you can inmediatly tell that newbie is Indian.

    4. You still ask yourself how the hell was it that Sam and I got into school.


    Ok I'm off to work now, hopefully when I come back you guys you'll have posted some additions to the "signs" list. :)

    Meggs.. one of the first posts of yours that I ever read, was the one where you say the best way to tell if a member is Indian is if they say 'I gave part 1'... and I realized I used to say that allll the time!!! :oops:

    Thanks to you, I practised saying ' I TOOK part 1' a 100 times till I was saying it in my sleep! :laugh:

    Totally Addicted Tasha :thumbup:

    P.S: You know you're an addict when you're more interested in getting a PC and internet connection at your new apartment in Philly than a bed!!! :cool:

    No one told me anything. No one had to. Have you taken a look at nalini's stats list?

    Plus the fact that both of us, were the lowest scores at out respective interviews. :)

    i am a SDN addict too!!!!:laugh: but not as much as meggs and sam bec. i can't trace the ethnicity nor do I post as much but there is hardly a single night that i do not log on to check for updates... to avoid staying too long though i try and confine myself to my favorite thread which is the bench update thread by dental husband but still there are nights i just can't help but yield to the temptation of browsing other threads...

    i wonder if we all ever get through this will i find myself still logging on each night? it would sure be cool to have a physical reunion one of these days!:laugh:
     
  19. I am more of a lurker but I AM DEFINITELY HOOKED.

    Hi Everybody,
    SDN sure seems to boost the energy to go thru the whole day,with a lot more enthusiasm than one can really muster for subjects like Biochem! Morever,it is a great place to interact with people from the same field... it is very encouraging to share ones dreams & fears with the rest who are on the same boat & finally see the bright colour of success.3 cheers to SDN FAMILY.HIP HIP HURRAY:)

    Top ten signs of SDN addiction(International Dental)

    1. You wake up at 3 a.m. to go to the bathroom and stop to check SDN on the way back to bed.

    2.You get a t-shirt that reads "I'm with SDNers Anonymous"

    3.You name your children Meggs, Henna and Sam3 :p

    4.You turn off your computer and get this awful empty feeling, like
    you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

    5.You start drawing :clap: :love: :confused: :D in your snail mail.

    6.You haven't checked SDN for two hours. You start to twitch.

    7.You ask a plumber how much it would cost to replace the chair in front of your computer with a commode.

    8.Your spouse says communication is important in a marriage, so you buy another computer, and teach him/her how to use PM.

    9.Your dog has an SDN id.

    10.You don't know the sex of three of your closest friends, because they have neutral nicknames and you never bothered to ask.

    can't stop laughing at that...looks like I'm soon gonna get a plumber to fix the seat in front of my computer!!! :p


    + you start seeing avatars of your fellow SDNers dancing around in your dreams:sleep:
    + get everyone (non dentists too) around you hooked to SDN
    + don't watch the news as often as you check out the updates on the site
    +start hating your server for not being fast enough even though thats the fastest one around.
    +not think of doing this+pissed+ even in your wildest dreams!!!

    Hi Mrinalini,
    Great post...and you know what the feelig is mutual...everything from the commode to naming your children(sob....sob):).The best part about SDN is it has become so close to the heart, though it started of with a professional introduction.Sometimes I wonder if this many friends could be made have we removed the anonymous title...good...now things have a different way of falling in place...we could still remain the best of friends after we meet, with a healthy competition in the professional field , coz we have all walked the rough road together 7 shared our inner most fears & happiness...kudos to SDN & all those who make it so special, that unplugging from the screen is the most difficult thing to do...imagine poor Sam's plight with all those mysterious PM's & being the most eligible...Dear Sam , no offense meant...like they say if winter is here( the struggle you had to get your seat secured) Summer( all those lovely ones after you) can't be far off!:)

    what i have felt personally is sdn is the place for meeting people goin thru the same phase of life so that we could all relate and make use of it ,another thing is that maybe little socialising OUTLET that we r missing in our hectic studies is this. sdn browsing is not addiction its a HABIT....... :laugh: :laugh: LOL ,if ever SDN WAS a CHAT ROOM holy smokes ...... u know the rest of the story, thank god it's not
