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

...when you try to bring your robot in the newest pokemon game since it is way cooler than all of the monsters.
...when your robot goes the speed of light.
...when you know how many screws, bolts, and nuts your robot has without a moment of thinking.
...when other teams get paranoid because they thing team 1983 clamped them so that they are checking their shirt every 2 minutes. (sorry team 2046, especially Brian had to suffer!)

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

Well, Brian from 2046 was our (Drive and Pit Crew's) main target in tacoma. He would immediately turn around and check anything that we could clamp.

During the finals we clamped him and let him know that it was because we picked him, and he wore that clamp for the rest of the finals. After we had won, he came up to a bunch of us and said that he was not planning on giving it back, being clamped with a lucky clamp was a good thing.

So Brian if you read this....I will find you in Atlanta...if you don't already have that clamp on you...watch out...you will....

You know you've overdosed no FIRST when...

...when you get back from your last competition of the season at one am then lie awake in bed all night thinking over and over again, "What am I supposed to do for, like, SIX WHOLE MONTHS?!?!" Then the next day you are sluggish and on CD constantly.

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

When you actually are going through Chief Delphi withdrawal.
When you practically cry cause you think your computer is broken and you can' t get on Chief Delphi.

When you're in an airport lounge on the other side of the world, and you logon to catch up on CD, rather than getting that much needed hour or two of sleep.

You get on the train to come home from the NYC event- and you realize regionals are over. It was a sad moment. It's almost the end of my junior year! Wow.

....While you are telling your math teacher the negative powers of two, and when you see 1/1024, you think"1/the kilabytes".
...When you see a bus with the number 1114 on it, and you do a double take.

-When you're modeling the spare swerve module for your college Solidworks project. (Thanks for lending it to me, Aren. )
