You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

- You have been wearing more or less the same clothes to the shop for days.

- You feel like you are wearing safety glasses for hours after your take them off.

- Coffee, Donuts, Soda, Pizza, Repeat.

- You bring the robot to Home Depot to test parts in the parking lot.

- Your non-FIRST friends call you to make sure you are still alive.

- You have uttered some choice four-letter words at the IFI Loader.

- At the end of the night, your sixth sense guides you to ihop without written directions.

- At ihop, you hear the cappuccino machine and look over to see who is using the dremel.

add your own last-minute build experiences!

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

You have gaps of time you can't account for.

Really bad ideas start to sound really good.

People in the shop no longer have a filter.

You learn that Red Bull doesn't freeze after being in 15 degree weather for 5 hours.

The Police show up to find out why there are cars at the high school at 5AM and the first thing you ask them is to borrow their radar gun. <--Really happened Friday!

Coming Soon: A time lapse of the last 48 hour of the Bobcat Robotics build.

When all your programming starts to say "I Love You"

When Poof Balls start floatng around your head.

When coffee becomes your Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

When your mentor can actually find something---True Story!!!

Red face Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

For kicks, you open up a box of poof balls to break up the lidless eyes

The computer lab is your only break

The sound of video makes you wonder what the freshmen are doing to the poor robot.

The snaps of static from the frame don't phase you anymore.

Edit:

When your break is studying for a Psych test

The 30yo couch in the student center is your bed for a few hours

Quake 3 on highest volume doesn't hurt your ears

and then the martians in your eyes dance around with the avatars on my screen.

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

Right on, John.

-- STATIC! --
Doesn't phase me in the least anymore. I laugh when others jump.

EDIT:
When the team leader asks what the mentors want for dinner and one of them answers a number without knowing what meal he's asking for. (TODAY!)

When you fight over the battery operated hand drill, one group wants it to pack the robot, the other to finish building the battery charging station. (TONIGHT!, about 11pm)

When you've developed the habit of touching something else metal before touching the robot! (UGH! Every Day!)

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

when you get home and your parents ask "who are you and what are yo doing in my house?"

when the programmers decide to get craftier with the sensors

when the drivers decide to get more creative in their driving

if your bot looks like a shopping cart and so you take it to a grocery store(our teacher said just because the prototype bot looks like the shoppping cart of doom, it doesn't mean we're going to use it to go shopping. We almost took it to McDonalds across the street in so that we could have dinner with the bot outside the shop)
