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

You're making me feel like I've been at the shop for three days instead of in my dorm room slaving away at homework.... but.. I have one...


You know you've been in the shop to long when ....your mentor decides to run cable through the ceiling to the TV in the shop so he can watch his news.
(yes, this happened when I was home for winter break)

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

When the students are no longer allowed to talk to the programmer because he's got to finish up the autonomous mode

When you start replacing steel bolts with aluminum bolts just because you know in the end it will matter

When you realize that an all black background for your side panels will add weight because of the extra toner

When the large deadweight hammer becomes a viable programming tool

When you have recurring nightmares about your robot being destroyed in a scrimmage, days after it happened and was fixed

When you almost have an aneurism when the scale reads 290 and you don't realize there's an engineer crawling around on it

When you get teary-eyed about the time the robot is supposed to ship

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

when someone says where's the sharpie and you have a sixth sense to know exactly where it is

you make a metal shaving angel instead of a snow angel

you smell like melting plexiglass / lexan

you wonder what that orb of light is in the sky while on the way home after the robot ships

you find the squeaks of hardened steel on the lathe soothing

your bedroom stays clean for the full 6 weeks

you cross state lines only to get a certain type of mountain dew (livewire) because they do not sell it in your state and then sell it to others on the team

you're at the school more than the janitors

you know where everything is at in the mess called a parts closet

you're at work and hear the maintenance guy grinding on something and wonder where the dremel went

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

when you go to jack in the box at 12am and when they tell you that they are out of chibata bread and someone yells "por que" at the guy takin your order

when you go to IHOP at 7am after workin for 21 hours soo you can take a nap

when you use foam as a bed

when you start to see what happens at night to your mentors after sleep deprivation

when you fall asleep on a rolly cart made of wood

when you spend 93 dollars at starbucks on coffee

when you have chuging contest of moutain dew

when all you think about is how to stay away from home

when you become soo sleep deprived that you dont rememeber what happened like 2 min ago

when you are woken up after a ten minutes nap by shouts of "TEN IN TEN TEN IN TEN"

When you leave for home and it is still light out side, due to days of elapsed time

you have eclip races for entertainment

your english papers end up having robot drawings instaed of actual words

which energy drink is most effective is a serious matter of concern

when u have an argument on how long it takes to get to a starbucks

when all food starts to taste like aluminum shavings and tap magic

a massive game of "ROBOT" is played using the goal

when half your poof balls have large chunks ripped out of them from out of line bevel gears

you go to school for the sole reason that you need four classes to come to robotics

sleep becomes a five letter words and is associated with 'weak' and 'never'

you start wondering what size bolts would fit through holes on badges and key chains

every piece of clothing you own has metal shavings somewhere

a collective cheer is sounded when the new plate is half an oz. lighter

instead of lint in your pockets u have bolts, nuts, washers, aluminum shavings, zip ties.. etc..

you actually find a way to run out of zip ties

u spend hours tryin to find a way to make ur robot weigh ur team number


P.S. most of these happened over the weekend to someone or another on our team

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

WHen the only thing keeping you awake is the fact that you are too sore to go to sleep. (It's possible)

When you see the meaning of life in a screensaver and it makes sense.

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

When three people is not enough to screw in an angle bracket

When you are sick and would rather be at school (half our team was sick)

When the sounds of metal on metal no longer bother you

When you actually enjoy spending time on a project which is due the next day

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

If you lay down on the hard tile floor in your CAD Lab, grab a bumper that your physics teacher/robotics advisor just finished, and try to get some sleep. (I tried, but couldn't actually sleep).
One of the advisors gives you his key to the school and keys to the vocational rooms because you are there more than him (true, and yes, I gave them back).
