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

-You sketch robot/electrical designs for fun when you're bored.
-When you close your eye's at night, and dream that you're back at Nationals.
-When you choose your class/job schedule just to accommodate FIRST.
-When it's 3am and you're still working on the Electronics Board

Right when you close your eyes, you start imagining your robot being destroyed in various ways.

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

When you are learning about the Constitution and you keep applying it to FIRST. The Constitution would be the rules, the Amendments the Team Updates, the Supreme Court cases would be the Q&A, and the founding fathers the GDC

Only, I don't think they sent out game hints...

Actually, they did. At one point the Founding Fathers sent out a painting of a slave sitting in front of 3/5 of a cake.

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

When, playing combat dodgeball in PE, you keep thinking about making a robot that could grab bottles from the baskets, pick up small balls from the floor and hurl them at others.....and that had to be legal, meaning you can't extend beyond the perimeter of the box!
(I was slightly alarmed when that happened to me )
