Go to Post We should have a 'Steps Taken For FIRST' contest. Everyone wear a pedometer and keep a log of how many miles you walked at the St. Louis Championship. That could be a lot of fun. Do they make pedometers for robot carts? - JaneYoung [more]

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

you look at the clock and it says 2:29 and you think what a great team. Then you wait for 2:30 and think what a great team, then you wait for 2:31 and you think, what a great team...then you wait for 2:32 and you think hey what ever happened to them?

By then it is 2:33 and you think what a great team...

and now it's 2:37 and you realize you've just lost 9 minutes of productive time...

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

...when you've been living at robotics since January
...when you see your mentors more than your parents
...when you don't know what to do with your life now that nationals is over... can't wait for off-season events
...when you CANNOT IMAGINE life without robotics

...when, for your Digital Animation Final Project, you design a FRC game field with a animation of how the game works. I'll post it up in a week when it's done.

When you buy a new vehicle based mainly on whether or not its cargo area is big enough to transport a robot and/or display/fundraising items (its a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it works!). My prior Jeep Wrangler just didn't work out!

This is sadly not funny
and I don't want to talk about it
or the ability to haul a trailer with said robot and/or display/fundraising items and don't forget the tools.
Nope, not talking about it.
