You know you're addicted to FIRST when...

Bored, tired, and waiting for food, so I thought I'd start up this list.

...you skip school to spend eight hours working on your bot.
...you have dreams about robotics.
...you talk about FIRST all day in an attempt to recruit people.
...you no longer have friends outside of your FIRST team.

. . . Your study hall teacher says every day, "Why don't you just transfer over there?"

. . . A discussion with a team engineer involves you saying, "Look, I built the $@#$@#$@#$@# thing, and I know it does this . . "

.....When given the name of a team or a team's number, you can tell them the name or number of that team ( ex. "247" would warrant "'da bears" as an answer and "da bears" would warrant "247" as an answer.

When you seriously consider taking the robot to Prom

When you begin to wonder if you are a robot

When you form mental algorithms to do stuff while you think about robots

When life becomes First with irrelevant stuff in between.

When you convince your mother to feed the pit crew and programmers

When you drive 45 miles away to work on the robot.

When you place willingness to participate in FIRST as one of your top criteria for a g/f

When you can reason out why the robot does what it does.

Place your attention entirely on my voice and try to ignore all the others. It is important to be able to focus on a single source of information while blocking out all the other things competing for your attention.

good reasons...good reasons. but what about these:

- when matt drives, and they know to move out of the way (just playin)
- people yell your names from the stands (actually, it's kinda...wait, really scary then)
- you treat people like robots by putting an ateanna on their head, and try to move them with a joystick
