- when you keep mumbling in church (or mosque) :" there is no other wheel than the ONE" ... (though you are a dyed-in-the-wool atheist).
- when you just can't go into the wild without wondering "how could I Muni that path?" (happens to me all the time )
- when your dreams are full of unicycling tricks you are unable to perform in real life (also happens to me all the time )
- when you just weight precisely every garment you put into your trunk because of weight retrictions for planes (knowing how much weight the unis you take with you).
- when you come back to work after some vacations and everyone is surprised you don't have some body part cast in plaster (happens to me all the time )
- when every MD that measures your heart rate says "what the heck is the sport you are practising? "

When you look at moving house and your first concern is being near enough to the edge of town to get onto the open road with minimum traffic lights and junctions in the way of the perfect 36" ride.

Or if you are really happy to have good 36" trail close to your house, with no traffic lights

I like that one most - I can't ride my bike with no hands anymore since I'm unicycling

I can't do it anymore either, and I had been doing it since I learned how to ride a bike. I get all wobbly and fall on my face, very embarrassing.

Well I try to do it too slowly all the time and then risk falling off - I have to remember that on a bike, no handed is limited to about 9mph or greater ;D

Yeah I used to just pop into a really high gear and ride no handed like it was nothing, now I take my hands off and my feet treat the pedals like a unicycle.

You know you're a unicyclist when:

people on your college campus are desensitized when you blast past them on a 36er in the snow

you are recognized without your unicycle

you can unicycle while intoxicated!
