116- You fall into severe depression if you have to go for more than 24 hours without using a calc or visiting omni.
117- You have a backup of you calculator data with you at all times in case you crash your calc and lose all data
118- You backup your entire memory at least twice a day, if not more
119- You want to cry when you see people using graphing calcs as four function calculators (which is everyone in my school except me )
120- You can go completly unnoticed when you play games on your calc in school

Sadly, I think about half of these reasons actually apply to me

121 - You use a second calculator only for backup purposes instead of a computer
122 - You can manage to port TI-Nspire OS to the TI-84+SE. (according to BrandonW, it would be very possible, because TI put so much bloat in their unoptimized stuff and it contains so much unused stuff they did not remove from the OS that it could be shrank to fit on a lower model and still run at decent speed )
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

123- If you write an app that has just run over onto the next page, you HAVE TO make it more elaborate to use up all that space
124- You don't let Mirage show program icons because it drives you nuts to see the generic icon many times
125- Of all your less enthusiastic calc friends, you're the only one who knows that the fasttun slowly shrinks when you get far enough
126- You've written a program to hijack fasttun to see what score you'd get if you played until the car physically can't fit through anymore

127- you make tool-assisted speedruns of calculator games

128: You read this post number as 10000000b
129: You freak out when the answers to your math homework are over 65535.
130: You hack the calculator to display numbers over 10^100.
131: You set your homepages to www.omnimaga.org, www.cemetech.net, and www.ticalc.org (true)

132. You use your calculator as a keyboard for everything, since it acts as a USB keyboard (with your 83+, of course)

I'll put it online when it does something.

133. You've written your own FAT32 driver for flash drives over 4GB to replace the semi-malfunctioning one in USB8x
134. On the rare occasion it's not in your hands, a 'friend' swipes your calc to drive you nuts for a whole class period
135. To get them back for it, you quickly punch in the hex code to activate BLOD on their calc and don't tell them that they have to take out the batteries soon if they want to save it

136.  You spend the whole day researching half of the posts on this topic trying to figure out if what some people said are true.
eg. questions; 130, and 122

137. You freak out when you see the number 23 randomly in places. ( completely me )
example. watching starwars 4. princess lea was held in room aa23 !!!!!....  longest yard. friend who died, his number was 23. my locker combo was 10, 13, 23
two towers destroyed,  9 11 2001.  9+11+2+1... you guessed it 23...... the letter w. 23rd letter of alphabet, 2 points down and 3 up. look at your keyboard. two keys above w? 2 and 3.  2nd row 3rd column?  you guessed it... w

139. You laugh as your friend gets his ipod taken away for watching video clips, then you pretend to do some calculations as you watch a dithered version of "The Matrix": lobby scene.
140. Benjamin Moody's and Brandon Wilson's email addresses are in your contacts even though they have no idea who you are
141. They DO know who you are
142. You have practiced pronouncing Joe Wingbermuehle's name in case you ever meet him
143. A naive friend mistakenly lets his mom by him his first graphing calc: an HP! When he asks you to put some games on it for him, it takes every ounce of your self-control to not bite off his head

144. Your math teacher asks you to stop putting games on people's calculator.
145. He tells you that they can't do math as well as you do. You know your high exam scores came from math programs that he doesn't know about.
146. You look for inspiration to make TI games while playing flash games on internet.
147. You write class notes on calculator program editor.
148. You have a flashlight next to your bed, so while trying to go to sleep, you think of an optimization or fix to a bug, you quickly turn on the flashlight, take your calculator from under the pillow and start programming.

Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a$1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a$2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

Hmmm...I have. Silly silly me.
But Builderboy gave the guy a new OS, so no harm done.

149: You group your stuff about 3 times before testing and after an hour your entire archive is filled with 4000-6000 bytes large groups
