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

You know an ENTIRE FRC team has overdosed on FIRST when you see the combined amount of hours from just the students reaches 2600 hours, without counting the messups on signing in and out.

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

You know you're overdosed on FIRST when you start recognizing what team your post count is equal to. Even on other forums. (I'm getting excited for post 2826 on a Pokemon forum I go to)

When you're caught between using your FIRST Robotics tote bag, bought in Atlanta, for either everything or nothing (to preserve the signatures you got!)

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

When you dream that the world has gone socialist under BAE Systems and they take Dean Kamen hostage for his ideas. And the FIRST community grows and FRC, FLL, and FTC become the International sport.

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

You've stayed overnight at school on ship day. Four students and a teacher made it through, even though the teacher practically let everyone sleep during class cause he was so tired.

My family got one for each of us, since we all volunteer. I'm so excited to put it on my car. It's funny, yesterday in school my friends were talking about decals for our cars, and I jokingly said I wanted a giant FIRST logo on my back window. I guess I have one now!

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

-As a "Hey, you two are captains now!" gift, your team decides to give you and your best friend/co-captain bright yellow watches that are synced to within a minute of each other.

-While displaying said watch's amazing backlight, you immediately say "Hey, 201 FEDS!" without thinking, and your friend just nods it off as nothing because she knows that it's some insane robotics thing.

-You see this Facebook status (below), and know exactly what the user is talking about.

At the end of build season, I weighed SieH20Bots. After competitions, I weighed Division By Zero. By Championship, I had gotten down to Tigertrons, but after eating Championship food, I went up to Hammerheads. By May I was ThunderChickens, and now I am MAK (Marshall/Kodak). How much did I lose this year, stated in Robot teams?

LOL, our Overdrive robots name was landshark... ^_^


I have been thinking of team names containing science and/or math puns (sorry if these are actual team names in FIRST). I feel that this is a result of me being overdosed with FIRST.

1. Torrmentors (tormentors)
2. Pirotechnics (pyrotechnics)
3. Ionic (Iconic)
4. sinatory (signatory)

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

delsaner . . . Team 2826's 'bot was named the Landshark and 1714 and team won the 10K Lakes Regional

You know you have overdosed on FIRST when you desperately wish you could go to IRI.

P.S. Nice team fake team names

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

You know you're overdosed on FIRST when you desperately want your team to go to a second offseason just to repeat Minnesota 10,000 Lakes

...when you check the IRI thread daily just to see if 2826 is going.
