When you make it to every single meeting and are very very sick with an undiagnosed condition that has lasted 5-6 months now. Then you bring home the control system to finish programing.

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

When you spend your entire summer on doing robotics things so that the build season will have more time on building and less on your ever wondrous spirit.

Or when at a sleep over you come up with robotics cheers and uniform designs instead of what normal people do at sleepovers.

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when you only have 12+ scheduled robotics meetings in July... not counting the dozen or so "Get over here now!" meetings.

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

-you suddenly get excited over meeting someone else participating in first robotics
-technology breaks and you think hey lets get one of those robotics people that build robots to fix it, and remember that you yourself are part of FIRST

You know you're overdosed on FIRST when you've waited 3 years for the reply count of this thread to get even remotely close to your team #.

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

When someone assumes you drive a car and asks what you drive, you're tempted to make up a "make" of your robot, and say an "09 UPS Nom-V"

When you meet with FIRST friends, talk about other stuff, and always end up back at FIRST.

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

In that case, my team's is lame. " '09 Chopshop Recyclable" doesn't sound anywhere NEAR as cool...I knew we should have named it "Weighed companion Cube"
