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

when everyone in the school can hear you coming because you fill your ENTIRE book bag with buttons.

when you hear the teacher talk about odds and probability and immediately think of percentage of accuracy for human players

in the lack of building a robot, you immediatly take over your mom's garage and start to manufacture a rail gun and a jacob's ladder.

you start to think up plans for wind turbines for something to do.

you ask people to show gracious professionalism in everyday conversations.

your boutonniere for prom is made from a graphics card, some electronics parts, and LED's.

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

You ask your prom date (who is also on your team) if he will wear red converses with his tux so he'll be cool like Woodie.

He agrees to do so and then asks if he can sign your dress.

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

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

- When someone walks up to you after Atlanta and you hand them one of your team's buttons thinking they wanna trade.

-When you're playing with legos and you find yourself building something that can move a mini orbit ball into a cup

-When you find yourself comming up with new things to spell with your team's poster letters in your free time.

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

-When you submit your Inventor award and realize that you spelled your team name wrong on the bumpers.
-Hackysack and Frisbee have become the most interesting part of Atlanta, not the competition.
-You realize how awesome Woodie's shoes are. (Atlanta 09)
-You’re willing to drive 14+ hours in one day to go to a competition.
-sexual innuendos involving orbit balls (and any robot references) become a normal part of conversation.

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

---When you get back and have the urge to chant anything, anything at all from Atlanta. For instance:

...When I say Blue you say Cheese! Blue! Cheese! Blue! Cheese!Cheese! Blue! Cheese!

...When I say Atlanta you say Georgia! Atlanta! Georgia! Atlanta! Georgia! Atlanta! Georgia! WHOOH!!!

...When I say Hillshire you say Farm! Hillshire! Farm! Hillshire! Farm! Hillshire! Farm! GO MEAT!


(PS: Had a great time at Atlanta. Hope to see everyone again!)

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

... you still have your FIRST after-party wristband and don't take it off until it falls off... but it's made of plastic
... your team jacket is covered in buttons from miscellaneous teams...
... you are already searching for a new tiara in preparation for being pit queen next year...
... you have days worth of makeup work yet you find yourself on chief delphi...
... you have experienced multiple stomachaches from dehydration and refusing to pay $3.50 for a bottle of water at the arena...
... you frown at the stairs at school, wishing they were escalators...
... you have gotten lost in the georgia world congress building...
... you cry because the season's really over after nationals, not because you didn't come home with any awards...
... you've gotten used to seeing people riding around on segways...
... you hate anyone who has the nerve to complain about car rides, butt pain, or aching legs (18 hours to atlanta, sitting down the whole time and then in the stands, standing in the pits all day)
... you ask your teacher for 15 points rather than 2 for that last question you answered in the last 20 seconds of class time (stole that one from nationals)
... you wonder what you are going to do without your favorite seniors next year...
... you think FIRST should be year-round...
... you're wearing so much spiritwear from other teams, nobody can tell what team you're from (various necklaces, buttons, temporary hair color, bracelets/wristbands, stickers, etc.)
... you realize your best friends in the world are scouting with you by your side, your most satisfying accomplishment is driving around scoring orbit balls on the regolith field, your heros are dean kamen and woodie flowers, and the best thing that's ever happened to you is FIRST

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

When...

You use the word Coopretiton outside of Competitions, and out of contex.

When you walk down the hall at school and someone yells EXCUSE ME! you instantly yell ROBOT COMING THREW! right back.

when after walking a long time for the whole day, and your feet are extremely sore, and you are about to get blisters on your feet. you say: "At least it isn't Atlanta."

you leave for lunch one hour before hand so you can beat the long lines.

Your the only group of people that don't tan on a "vacation" to Atlanta.

You know:
Don't Stop Believing
The Macarana

and several other songs, that were popular two to twenty years ago.

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

You use the word coopertition in a scholarship essay, have to explain what it means, and then brag about getting to see it signed into a trademark in person.

You have to appease your underclassmen's obsession with crab drive by telling them they can make a t-shirt launcher so they don't try and build next years chassis.

Your entire team steals all the bean bags and half the couches in the robo lounge and falls asleep during lunchtime because they were up all night working on scouting reports(some of you may have seen us =D)

While half asleep in the robo lounge you hear the demonstration of Math CAD and think it's the best thing in the world because it can do Calculus

You make gear ratio jokes about the Teacup ride at the Championship afterparty

When your primary reasoning for winning your regional is that a Pi team couldn't lose on Pi day
