In the John Lennon Letters book, they had a question and answer thing by each Beatle, and for dislikes, Ringo put Donald Duck.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you hear somebody mention Paul McCartney, and your first thought is "I wonder how she knows Paul," and then you realize how daft that was.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

You know your brother's a hardcore Beatles fan when he wants your baby sister's first word to be Beatles, and then he's almost disappointed when she can say his name before she can say Beatles.

OK, another hilarious bit of Pope/Beatles symmetry HERE:

While watching The Beatles Cartoon after the sing-a-long session when they comment how "Marie and Roger weren't singing", you start crying because they didn't say your name paul-mccartney....oh that was only me...okay then :(

Everytime the teacher gives you question "number nine" for homework you exchange a Beatle-knowing glance with your friends, same with "The Night Before","HELP" etc. I swear those teachers just want me to fangirl to death.

A lad in your class is named Paul and everytime a teacher asks a question to Paul, you raise your head with hope then sigh when it's not the Paul.

God, The Beatles have ruined my life but they're so good paul-mccartney

You know when you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you listen to all 13 studio albums in a row without stopping in between to do anything.

I did this a few weeks ago, took me 8 1/2 hours. It was all worth it.

 

Something that I could never ever done, I don't have that much free time.

Ha, well done! I only made it about halfway back in 2010. Wasn't a pre-planned decision - I just felt like hearing PPM and WTB in succession to compare them for similarities, then after they ended I figured "what the hell" and kept going. I abandoned the attempt after Revolver because I got ear fatigue from the headphones, plus I didn't wanna stay up until 4am! (Also, I probably cheated by getting up to make a drink, going to the bathroom a few times...can't remember.)

You know you're hardcore etc. when...you go through all 100-plus pages of this thread with a checklist in hand, going "Yes...yes...yes...no...no...yes..."
