Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

When zip ties are your best friend.

When any hint of smoke is near you, you think the robot is burning.

When You tear poof balls for amusement.

When team members, after long days of frustration, sing in unison at the Bohemian Rhapsody.

When every blink of the eye is a blessing

When half your food consists of metal shavings

When teammates chug soda from a funnel and hose

When tally marks are on the board counting the amount of dremel blades and drill bits broken.

When you realize that 98% of your body is composed of soda.

When you find that rolling down the halls of an empty school in a creeper, brings great joy.

When a team member puts the robot hopper ramp on his head and informs us that he is ready to invade Africa.

When random weapons (chinese stars) are created from the metal that is supposed to be used for the robot.

When one robotics team member jumps on a table and acts like a gorilla.

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

When alicia decorates every single poof ball left.

When you can no longer bring up the issue of weight because it is a "sensitive" subject.

When you *willingly* go into a pinata.

When you get so fed up with the robot and everyone is annoying you that you settle your differences with a match of sumo wrestling and follow it up by playing dodgeball... with the robot.

You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if: When you work on robot all Friday night. Then you go to scrimmage on Saturday . Finally go home Saturday night about 8:00. Get up Sunday morning go back to shop thinking I must be really tired cause everything is blurry for about four hours before you realize there is a lens missing from your glasses.

When you do current calculations in you head for all the main systems at flat out and realize the main breaker may blow this year.
That you weld the little tabs on the aluminum piece your working on because you can't find four of the correct sized screws...And you rationalize the welding will be lighter

- the pile of soda cans, chinese containers, and pizza boxes is as tall as a person.

- you do more work on the robot/in the shop than you do at home.

- you only go home to do homework and sleep.

- the school janitors know you by name.

- you go to sleep and have dreams of a working robot.

- you accidentally call your mentor(s) mom or dad.

- random spots in the shop look like good places to nap.

- you consider putting the laptop inside the goal opening, and testing the robot's shoting capabilities.

- you think everything in life can be solved by if/else

- you start making artwork out of drill press and lathe shavings.
Speaking of artwork from drill presses...:

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

your entire body is covered with a film of PVC dust.

you don't notice the metal shavings in your nose anymore.

your hand seems to vibrate when you're not holding the dremel, and seems to remain still when you are.

you drink someone elses coffee despite the huge skull and crossbones sharpied onto the cup, and just plain don't notice because of sleep deprivation.

your parents are becoming increasingly suspicious that you've been sneaking off to drink (drinks that you really aren't allowed to drink by law) because of the sheer amount of time you spend out of the house. you think i'm kidding.


and good luck everyone; happy ship day tomorrow.

Re: You know you've been in the shop too long this weekend if:

Your team knows the difference between the stubby screwdriver and the nubby screwdriver.

You think its a good idea to ram your bot into the wall to test it.

You realise that the red stuff dripping from your hand isnt paint.

Your bot looks more like swiss cheese, than the acutal stuff.

You decide to slaughter metal desk parts to add weight back to the robot.

Your bot starts telling you when its upset.
