Go to Post I then asked if I could use a flux capacitor for power, but that didn't go over too well, either (they did say I could use it for decorative purposes, though). - Kevin Watson [more]

All of the static shocks that keep happening either numbs your fingers or you just don't notice them anymore.

Somehow convince yourself that the robot wonít work so youíre forced to work harder.

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

the students from buzz would have to say...
-when you went to grab your bottle of coke...you instead picked up the methyl ethel bad stuff...and almost drank that until you realized coke doesn't smell like pure death
-every parent has stopped by with some form of "food" (baked goods)
-when you fall asleep in the teachers lounge...more than once
-when human player practice turns into an all out game of dodge ball...but you just keep pegging one person
-when you start making up songs that fit the mood like: "there's so much hostility....and our robot has no capabilities"
-when more than one alumni comes back and is not surprised to see that the robot is in shambles
-when onomatopoeias start making sense when you're asking for a certain size drill bit
-when you get so frustrated that you call the Greek kid on the team Poseidon because he's doing something wrong
-you don't see daylight
-weather doesn't matter
-weather doesn't exist
-you spend more time at school...than you do at home
-the janitors know you better than your own parents
-you called a janitor mom or dad
-you have time lapses
-your dog doesn't recognize you anymore
-your own family doesn't recognize you anymore
-there's no such thing as a curfew
-you don't realize you have about a foot's worth of PVC shaving on your shoulder for about an hour after you've done it...and it's more than one person...and they're all staring at each other
-you're sick of pizza
-you can use the lathe without really paying attention to it
-you go through about a dozen or so band saw blades a day...and you think it's not a problem
-stopping the milling machine turns into the worlds best game
-when 8 people at 10:30 in the morning the day before ship have nothing better to do than this...and the robot is nowhere near done...you know you've been in the shop too long


see you all at competition...if we're still alive

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

- When eating at Wendys becomes its own holiday celebrated with it's own special song and dance.

-When you sleep inside of the '04 goal because it looks so comfortable.

-When you bring a blanket and pillow to driver training because its your only chance to get a good hour long nap.

-When you start talking about taking electrical tape off of the robot to make weight.

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

When you eat all your meals by the lab.

When your mentors have back pains and muscle spasms and they still come in.

When you get to school at 8 and leave at 11 ... 15 hours later.

When you go home just to see your parents, because you haven't seen them in a long time.

When you start creating alternate lyrics to beatles song such as six weeks a year to eight days a week and binary code write to paperback writer

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

You know you've been in the shop too long when...

- on a day off from school, you show up earlier than you would if there was school. (Happened today)

- you order food for delivery and they already know what you want and where to go.

- 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.

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

...when you're running out of room to put the empty soda cans.

...when the team has a "favorite screwdriver".

...when everyone knows what "the small wrench but not the really small one" means (3/8).

...when you have nicknames for most of the rest of your tools, too.

...when the school has to modify the alarm system so the administrators don't get woken up after midnight by the alarm company... again.

...when you're tired enough that ordinary words and phrases like "penguin," "Mike's arm," and "thumper" are hilarious.

...isn't everybody wearing the same clothes they were on friday?

...you excuse yourself from regular classes because of a bad case of "robotics flu."

...your teacher has "fallen in love... with rivets."

...shavings, holesaw cutouts, fasteners, and other stuff removed for weight constitute a "feel good pile."

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

When the soda machine became sold out of only Mountain Dew and Powerade because the programmers first drank all of the Mountain Dew, and then started mixing caffeine products and Powerade.

When you think the above event signifies the end of the world.

When you can't figure out why you're so tired in the shop, continue working at "normal" pace out of sheer motivation, and when you get home at 11, your mom takes your temperature and you discover you have a fever of 102.4.

And then, the next day, it's strangely gone and you can go to the shop for the final 9 hour sprint of build and test.
