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

When your phone says your most contacted person is your robotics mentor, and the other people in most contacted list are team members, your family, however, just manages to squeak onto the end of the list.

This might have already been said:
When someone asks you a tech-related question, and your first/only response is "Check Chief Delphi, and if there isn't a post, make one."

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

When you're reading Bill's Blog, and you look down at your clock, and you make an audible noise when you see that you 1. Are reading Bill's blog. 2. You're not reading a new post, but an old one to try and get a hint out of it. And 3. you notice that it's Thunderchicken time! (Mostly that bit about Thunderchicken time.)

You were also hanging out with a friend today and you say that it's Robowrangler time and they give you a blank stare.

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

When you see a friends status on facebook has been hacked. You then realize that no one has commented on it. So now you can report its as spam to the moderators. I have done this. Kinda embarrassing when no one has any idea why you commented with the word "reported" in the status.

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

When your 9 year old sister wants to wake up at 2AM to watch kick-off....

When you sneak back to your room at 5AM after kock-off said sister wakes up and won't go back to sleep till she hears about the game!

When everyone in your family does FIRST, from your 9 year old sister to your 80 year old grandmother!!!
