You know you're a Tintin-fan when...
- you've tried writing Tintin-fanfiction and stopped because you realized it will never be as good as the original
- you think that someone who thinks the Thompsons are twins, can't be called a Tintin-fan
- you have a mental breakdown when someone spells 'Tintin' wrong (i.e. Tin Tin, TinTin or something like that)
- you want to name your dog Milou
- you never get tired of watching the series
- you learn more French from reading the books (in French) than during the four years you spent studying the language in school

That's pretty much me.

You know you are Tintin fan when:
- you say "Great snakes!" in the worst situations, "Blistering barnacles!" when angry, and "To be precise" while talking;
- you call every man with a bowler hat "Thom(p)son";
- opera singers remind you of Bianca Castafiore, and every deaf man of Cuthbert;
and, lastly,
- you don't believe it was Neil Armstrong who stepped on the Moon first, because we all know it was Tintin!

That's me! Did that just last week! I also answered "Professor Cuthbert Calculus" as the guy who invented coloured TV's, submarines and rockets! XD

You know you're a Tintin fan when:
You find out your friend has the Tintin theme as their ringtone and start calling them repeatedly while in the same room just to hear the music

You know your're too much a Tintin fan when you don't take aspirin, in fear of growing colour-changing beards and having them grow to an exaggerated level. (land of black gold)

this also happened when they went to the moon, remember?

You know you're a Tintin fan when you annoy your friends endlessly at lunch when everything they say you manage to somehow relate it to Tintin!!

You know you are a Tintin fan when
-When you read each book of the series an infinite times
-Call out 'pickled herrings', 'jellyfish' etc. to anyone who so much as pushes you in school
-Make your parents mad for over two years in order to make them buy you a coat like Tintin's
-Plan from a month before how to celebrate Tintin's birthday, which flavour cake to have on his birthday etc.
-Relate all your lessons at school (history, geography, science, english etc.) with Tintin
-Think about Tintin the whole day
-Pester your parents to take you to Belgium
-Whenever you are out on road, you search if there are any Tintin posters anywhere
-Ask everyone you know about Tintin
-Include the word Tintin at least once in your essay in the language paper
-Try to memorise even the numbers of all the cars in each of the Tintin comics
-Dream of having adventures like Tintin, or of becoming an animator so that you can work on the next Tintin movies that come out
-Ask people if they'd allow me to draw Tintin on their doors
-If you want a Tintin shop next to your house
-Say Tintin's name out loud even while sleeping at night

Well, it's rather a long list, but that's what I do, and half the people reckon I'm mad, but I'm happy to hear that too.
Cheers for the happy tintinologist team :)
