...you realize that your team probably spends as much on Mountain Dew as they do on the robot.

Actually, I don't think this is true, but it certainly seems like it sometimes.

That'd be about $3,500 in Mountain Dew. I could believe that...

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

When you are on the couch sick, but still want to go to FRC because it is your team's last day. (We are shipping the robot one day early to give it an extra day through customs)

When you were running a fever last night (and tried to hide it, but didn't quite manage it...) and you still stayed till 11 PM!!!

When both of your parent have lost bets, resulting in them wearing a mohawk. (Why else do you think I was up so late? Dad, it is your turn )

Monster would be more plausible. Say at bulk it's 1.50 a can, that's only ~2400 cans. With a 60 person team, that would make 40 cans per person. 7 days * 6 weeks = 42 cans of Monster at one a day.

When you get build flu. You're not an addict without build flu.

the more important question isn't why you wrote the lyrics to pants on the ground on the white board. Instead is why is their WHITE BOARD MARKER on a SMART BOARD???

Lol no offense but when I looked at the picture that's the first thing I noticed.

It looks like the board is one of the models that also has dry erase.

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

when "Fire Lasers" is on your days to-do list, and crossed off.

When you reach in your pocket and aren't sure if you have change or washers.

When your saturday's pizza matrix is more organized then the toolbox
