Geronimo’s 4th Modern Talking Obession Test

Thought it was time for one of these again. Fourth in the series, points 301-400 on signs you’re obsessed with Modern Talking. Last updated: 4 September 2000, and I haven’t updated spelling and grammar mistakes since then. Again, this is a fairly insane list, mainly played for laughs, and no, I didn’t get all points back then. 😛 Like the previous ones, a lot of things are obscure references to song lyrics, music videos, pictures and interviews.

This is the 4th fun little test you can take, and check out exactly how obsessed you are with Modern Talking… :c)

  100. You understand ALL the points (honestly) of this list as well!

… And by now, I believe we’re about half-way through the list …


An easily distracted and over-excited introvert who never learns to go to bed at a reasonable time. Enjoys traveling (when there's not a plague on), and taking photos of European architecture. Cares for cats, good coffee and Boardwalk Empire. A child of her time, she did media studies in school and still can't decide what she wants to be when she grows up.
