Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

... You are taking two college classes in the summer, you tell your parents it's because you want to have an easier work load for your first year but it's actually because you want to help out the local FIRST team.

... you do the team cheer in you sleep.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when you look up at the clock and think of team numbers before noticing what time it is. (E.g.Team 1219 vs. 12:19PM)

[nope] multiple entries back to back are frowned apon, if u don't know how to add a quote while writing a post then PM me. [/npoe]

When you realise that everyone else in your AP class failed a curved test because you got everything right and gave a FRC reference related to that question next to each question... and they didn't even know what half the questions meant.

When you don't have to tell them, they already know

When you and your boss plan on carpooling to FIRST events
