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

When you can name address numbers based on team names

You have a dream of winning the Inspiration for Engineering award... the 3rd day of Build Season

When you forget how to shoot a regular basketball because the muscles in your hands only respond to FRC basketballs

When you have a dream of what division you're in for Championships

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

You are baking some bread and it calls for some baking soda. So you go to the cupboard only to find a half used box of baking soda with instructions for a battery spill that another team gave you a few years ago at a regional.

When you walk anywhere in public and think "He looks like someone from team XXXX" or, "I think I saw her at a regional one time...."

When you see a t-shirt with a company logo on it and instantly try to figure out what team it looks like.

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

When you label your physics notes "2826 motion" when studying waves.

When you wonder why people use facebook and not Chief Delphi.

When someone is bragging about an athlete's abilities and you say you've seen robots do it better.

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

....when you get a message from someone who is CADing out the robot that says "Funny fact, a piece of lexsan that is one square yard and has one hole every half inch up and down has a total of about 4900 holes. So I guess thats why 3D CAD crashed every time I tried to draw it."

....when you also are discussing with the girlfriend of one of your classmates about how he really would love to go to prom with her, but he will be at a robotics competition, and that as a captain I would really like to have him with me...

....when you deny your own significant other a prom date, only to have him realise that you are both going to nationals anyway.

.... when you would rather miss your senior prom than miss nationals senior year.

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

...when 5 minutes after you sit down to do homework you find yourself doing something robotics related

...when you relate the smallest, insignificant things somehow to some aspect of your team

...when you've eaten pizza for six weeks straight yet still manage to lose weight

...when you have inside jokes about inside jokes with people on the team

...when you find metal shaving in your clothes... a week after build season has ended

yeah, that's all I have 4 now, go teams!!!

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

...when you wake up your roommate one week after a regional screaming at her to not touch the basketballs during Hybrid in your sleep.

...when you experience robotics withdrawls.

When you talk to your leatherman about your work, then it talks back about your work, then you wake up and realize you fell asleep in the stands from exhaustion.

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when you can relate to the majority of these responses.
