When you build a website that hosts all the regional and district competitions, including the Championship and over 18,000 people come to see it. lol

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

When, after weeks on end of doing this, you've come to figure out that between the hours of 1am and 6am, ChiefDelphi vastly slows down in terms of new posts and people online. Then, you contemplate as to why this is and simply come up dumbfounded.

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

When you see this topic on the front page, read about 10 posts down before you realize that it started in 2006 (!!!) and it still applies.

When you get home, the first thing you do is start researching the WPI Java library and drool in anticipation of switching to it from LabVIEW (and shudder at the prospect of persuading your fellow programmers)

When on the plane home from Nationals, you're already trying to figure out next year's game.

There's a thread for that!
http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...hreadid=106055

I know I am overdosed on FIRST because...
I missed a Senior Water Polo game to attend Karthik's Presentation, and I'm not even attending Champs!

I think anything would be better with a robot addition (movies, books, you name it!).

I watch the avengers and try to figure out how to make the iron man suit using nothing but a sheet metal/ laser cut sponsor and the KOP.

I eagerly anticipate the "New Cool" movie.

I plan my whole school year around robotics.

I eagerly anticipate next year's game more than anything else.

I don't know what to do with my summer, because there will not be enough robotics!

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

When the majority of your awake, not at school time is spent building robots, thinking about robots, reading forums about robots, watching videos of robots, and wishing you could have more time to do the above activities...

Where's the like button??!?!?

You know you're OD'ed on FIRST when you start making plans to build new robots with various configurations and want to play each of them against eachother.

When your coach gets mad at you for missing a meet so you can go see Dean Kamen. Honestly, it was soooo worth it.

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

When you're hoping you can manipulate your first year university schedule so you can attend an off-season competition with your team in the fall.
When you notice that they stole the 'end game train sound effect' and distorted it in The Hunger Games movie.
When you see an inner tube and you can't help but want to throw said inner tube backwards and over your head - as far as you possibly can.
When your first option for procrastinating on homework is re-living matches from many competitions via YouTube.
When you have well over a dozen robotics-created inside jokes with your robotics friends that always find an opportunity to re-surface.
When you realize FIRST robotics has made you a stronger, more well-rounded individual throughout high school than any of your courses or other teams ever could have done.

All of which I am a victim of!
I am sure there are more symptoms of being overdosed on FIRST that I can realize I am a victim of as well.
But being a victim is a good thing in this case!
