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

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when:

... You talk to your tools because you feel that they work better when you do.

... You squee out loud when you see ear rings/ necklaces/ ect. in your team colors.

... You look forward to the robot apocalypse

... You will only go to a collage that has a FIRST team within driving distance.

... You have named one or more of your hunter pets in World of Warcraft after your robot/s.

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

...when so far this school year all you've worn is team shirts to school

...when you have a panic attack because you can't find your team shirt that Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers signed

...when you find the shirt and find a way to hang it on the wall so it wont accidentally get washed and the sharpie will come out

...when your mind wanders during your classes about minibot improvements and championships and you cant stop it

...when even though it feels like its 20 degrees during the fundraising event you're at and you cant feel your hands you still drive your demo bot around

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

-When someone asks you for your phone number you say (###) Impact-RoboRevolution
-When you give your number in that fashion, understand, and ask someone else for it.
-When you decide that after you get (Team Number) songs here on your ipod/mp3, that you will not ever get another song again, unless you remove an equal number to keep the total the same.

When you silently squeak in joy of seeing your team number as total time played in Pokemon. Not to mention OP Robotics too.

While on college visits you pull out the camera to take a picture of all the exit numbers that are associated with FRC Team numbers. Seriously. I will post a Thunderchickens exit later.

Your team celebrates because the odometer turned to your team number.
Even though the competition just ended, you get right back to work on the award submissions.

You're at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in WV, and you could swear that your tour guide was Dave Lavery, without the evil grin.

And then you remember that this isn't NASA.
