There are 4 stages of Storm Trooper Syndrome severity.
Stage 1: Commonly known as being "storm-curious". Lasts from 1 day to 4 weeks.
Stage 2: Early Onset STS. Lasts 1 month to 1 year.
Stage 3: College STS. (18-23 yrs old) Often thought to be beyond help at this stage.
Stage 4: Terminal STS. A progression of Stage 3 STS. Patient has either graduated/dropped out of college, now has a drug dependency and realizes they wasted their college years pretending to be a storm trooper. Often seen sleeping in cardboard boxes.
STS is a real condition. If you notice a loved one displaying any of these symptoms get them help immediately.
Hey do you remember that tall guy from the party? Yeah the one with College Storm Trooper Syndrome. Apparently he wears that storm trooper coat he made everywhere he goes.
That homeless guy in the gutter over there, poor guy suffers from Stage 4 Storm Trooper Syndrome. Apparently he wasted his time in college, was banking on being the star of "Storm Troopers the Musical" play was never even written. Now he just tells stories about the Battle of Alderaan, and his escape from the Death Star.
