You'd be willing to have a team meeting on Thanksgiving, just so there could be a meeting on 11-24

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

  • When you dress up as Dean Kamen for your schools 'When I grow up' day
  • When your family has to tell you to stop relating every number ou see to a robotics team number
  • When you have dreams about robotics games that you never participated in. (Overdrive for me )

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

You don't "know". You ARE overdosed on FIRST, know it or not. And fortunately, there is no cure for this kind of overdose!

You are my hero! My team wanted to have a bunch of students form the FIRST logo outside our shop right before the Google Earth satellites take a new picture, so our team will be in the form of the FIRST logo forever online.

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

  • When you've read most of the posts on this thread.
  • When your wearing your team shirt for the yearbook photo.
  • When someone calls you "that robotics kid"
  • When you start finding 80/20 fittings in the dryer.

I'd consider it a good thing if you overdosed on FIRST

One cannot overdose on FIRST! As Will.I.Am says: "I just can't get enough".

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

You know you've been here too long when you think your mentors yelling, "And don't cut yourself!" is commonplace. That, and the scream when somebody doesn't listen.

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

When you go into Hobby Lobby and tell them casually that your hobby is building robots, and go on to ask them if they have spare parts. When they say no, you leave the store and decide to stick to ACE hardware.

Now that's embarrassing. 80/20? FIRSTers mill their own.

The real reason is because your name is Phil. It's a great name...

Back on topic... how exactly can you find out when the Google Earth satellites pass by a certain place? Because that's kind of important to know if you're trying to get in their shots (and standing outside for days on end is not fun at all)
