When you see this comic on XKCD http://xkcd.com/689/ and realize you know a team that would consider that design and recognise your robot's trademark in the image (our green lattice aka fence)

When you have AP Macroeconomics homework to do, a take home test to finish, and reading for a College Freshman English class and rather than procrastinate on Facebook, you open Chief Delphi and start reading threads. XD

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when................ even four months after the championship you feel a pang of fear every single time you enter a large room and realize you aren't wearing any safety glasses....... unfortunately a true story...

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

When you call the robot your baby and want to kill (not literally) anyone who hurts it.

When you buy prescription safety glasses to avoid wearing 2 pairs of glasses

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

When you've got three laptops in your bedroom, and you're using them all... to browse CD.

When you are annoyed that a day is a holiday, because that means you can't go to school and test the code you were awake since kickoff writing.

Oh, and when you take apart a lasertag gun to see if the IR is compatible with and legal for use on your bot, just in case the next year's game is lasertag of sorts.

When you already have a picture in your head of a robot playing lasertag after reading that sentence.

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

You know you're overdosed on FIRST when...your idea of a date night away from the 4 kids (ages 16, 14, 2, and 1) OR your 2nd date with a girl...is to go to the local high school and help the robotics team...

Swear on my life true stories...the first is a local engineer who is mentoring for the first time and wanted to show his wife what we do, they stayed for 2 hours instead of going out to eat and the second is our high school welding teacher who on their second date said "I need to run by the high school real quick" and ended up staying for an hour and a half to weld parts of our kicker together...

P.S. Both women proved how cool they were by 1: Not killing their date/husband and 2: Actually asking questions and commenting on how much fun it looked like we were having...
