Guilty of 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 11...oh forget it.  Guilty of 22/41

As for 16 (One of the 22) - Dubs are the devil, but mainly those by 4Kids.  ('Cause we all know they're trigger happy with that edit button!)
----
42 - You draw fanart, even if you say you have no art skills whatsoever
43 - You devise ways to cosplay favorite characters with as close to complete accuracy as possible, wanting to outdo most of the others doing that costume
44 - You know you're obsessed with a series when you go into a bookstore looking for it, and don't want to buy anything if it's not there
45 - For the wig wearers:  You make character-specific faces on your wig heads and only use it for that one character's wig(s)
46 - You can look at anything and figure out a way to incorporate it in your cosplay

----

I'm guilty of mostly 43, 44, and 46 - for me, it was a cardboard tube.

47. You gripe when your mother gets more pictures taken of her costume than you in yours.
48. You can help anyone with any propmaking problem... Even though you've never done it yourself.

I'm guilty of 4, 8, 9 (Trinity Blood will vampire away your wallet AND your sanity!), 12, 13, 19, 21... Forget it.

49. You start to cook like Chiyo-chan.
50. You see Lina Inverse and maybe Gaory in everyday life. At least people start to seem to act just like them.
51. You see an Asian girl and wonder which anime she would be best in.
52. You have Google Earth'ed to find out all the places you have heard of in anime or manga, e.g. you know where Hakodate is, and what it really looks like from atop that hill, and you know what the battleship Yamato had its' homeport, and where the gods all congregate every October.
Have Fun
