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

when walking through a crowded hallway after a competition and realize that there is a cargo cart right behind you you instinctively start to yell "ROBOT" and then right before you do you realize that you aren't at a competition and the cart isn't a robot.

When you're astounded (and dismayed) that this thread has been off the portal page for so long, and feel it is your sacred duty to put it back on.

You look at the You know you've overdosed on FIRST when... thread and see you have read almost a hundred pages when you should be sleeping.

When your friends get in an argument over whether it is acceptable to ask if anyone has a video of someone pronouncing Karthik's last name.

That sounds like a backhanded way of asking how to pronounce Karthik's last name.

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

you realize that this thread was started when a good chunk of your mentors were sophomores and freshmen in high school, and when you were 9. CD makes me feel really young.

When you're actually sad that school's closed.

When you spend your summer vacation sleeping and designing.

When you know more people living abroad than people living in your town.

When I'm hoping that sometime during my FRC career, I can get post #4183 on this thread
When I'm excited to have a few green dots next to my name on Chief Delphi.

Your windshield wipers are leaving streaks and you start having brainstorming sessions about how to build a robot that can wipe the windshield for you, instead of stopping by the store and picking up new blades.
