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

When you spend a good 10 minutes trying to figure out who someone who added you on Facebook is, then figuring it out when you run into their all team picture from Atlanta.

When you post on Chief Delphi while at a demo.

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

When you get an IM from a buddy who was in FIRST with you who was interviewing a guy who said he was on a FIRST team asking for you to confirm that fact and you can.

When asking you about FIRST is a banned topic at work because the last time it happened involved an orbit ball being tossed at people.

Oh and to you people who are not studying for finals and are on here instead, SHAME ON YOU!

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

When you log into chief delphi and realize the post count on this thread is 1771, for North Gwinnett, and then rush to post number 1772, which would be a team from Brazil!!!

How about when you go on spring break and have a college competition the first weekend, and then an FRC regional the second weekend where you're volunteering? Does that count as overdosed?

Above average, but normal. You're almost there, keep it up!

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

1. You pass your team members in the hallway and say "What time is it?" and their immediate response is "12:61". Yes, that is an official team cheer.

2. You sneak into your sponsor's classroom, one person distracts the teacher, and another gets an expo marker, takes the clock down, and puts a 6 between the 12 and 1. All of this for the purpose of it actually being 12:61.
...and then the teacher leaves it there for all to see!

-When you're offered an internship the summer after graduating from high school based on your commitment to FIRST

-When you do your work for the internship fast enough that you have time to get on Chief at work

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

When you desperately wish your team would get back on your team forum to talk about next year.

Also, you see the word Oshkosh, and immediately think "Wave Robotics" and "2826".

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

When your senior pictures include you wearing your team shirt, operator badge, and posing with your team's FRC and FTC bots.

When applying for the Governor's School for Math, Science, and Technology, you have to expand the three slots they give you for extra-curricular activities to 7. BTW I got in! Leaving July 4th weekend.

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

when you realize that you need to re-write your college app essays since they didn't convey a well rounded person, they conveyed a crazy FIRST addict (not that that's a bad thing, it's just that colleges like variety)

When you get a varsity letter in Robotics
