Who out there has their bedroom or dorm room dedicated to FIRST? I know I can't be the only one. See the picture for the evidence.

Well, "yoink" was used in The Simpsons (Marged "yoinked" a washcloth from Homer). Okay, but anywho, those are a lot of signs, I always wondered where they went after competitions, but I wouldn't have ever guessed it was to your bedroom. :-) Didn't anyone ever ask you where you got that from when you were walking around with them?

We've never been caught in action, at least not yet. All of those signs were from '99 and '00 and the cleptos that snached those have since gragiated.

Actually we've been cutting back on the recon missions because it was starting to get out of hand. But it does look great in my room

P.S. The Simpsons is the greatest TV show of ALL TIME!!

Thanks Jess...and yeah, my room is a FIRST haven...I'll have to take some pics before I need to pack up to move to RIT. One entire wall is 4 years of pins...another, the medals I've picked up...1998 participation and 2001 NE and National Division gold...though, those are somewhat hidden in the corner. Not the most important thing to me.

Another wall is litterally a collage of pictures of my FIRST-a-holic friends right above my computer. Ummm..lesse...my door is a Bobcat Robotics flag with the 2000 and 2001 team pics above it, and the Flashbacks team pic above that. My bookshelf has been covered in FIRST manuals, videos, the ball Tammy gave me from Nats this year, and random engineering textbooks that I don't even begin to understand - but they look cool

Even my computer is covered in a 69 driver sticker and pictures of 69's 1999 bot and the 1999 Bobcat. My bed is half covered in tie dye and surrounded by pictures. I can also go over 2 weeks straight without wearing the same or identical FIRST shirt twice. Not to mention the random robot parts that I've somehow managed to collect over the years. Yeah, I LIVE as a FIRST-a-holic. My mom's just given up at this point

FIRST knows now

Well some of us at FIRST now know where our signage has gone too. It's nice to see it being put to good use.
(but you didn't hear me say that) :O)

What about cubes?

What about all the engineers' cubes/offices? I've got a 4'x2' printout of this year's playing field and the medals our team received this year. Hopefully I'll get some goodies from other teams next year.

Office Cube

My cube right now is covered with little pictures of robot parts or mechanisms that I got at reigonals and nationals. Each one is a specific element of a robot that was either ingenious or so stupid simple and effective that I needed to have it in front of me to remind me of just what can be done with a plastic crate of parts. People stop by all of the time and actually ask me if students and engineers actually designed and built these things. To people outside of first, this whole concept is pretty amazing, as it should be.
