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

...you don't care about grammer or spelling but know the exact spelling of everything robotics related, down to the spelling of the name of some random guy in the credits of the launch vid.

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

  • When your user auto-logins to CD in about 20 computers, 15 of which at school.
  • When you're bummed about the fact none of your classes this year are in rooms 1, 4, 7, 11, 16, or 25 (be noted that our school has only rooms 1-36, and many of them don't actually exist).
  • When you consider graduating from your team WAY more important than graduating from school.
  • When you seriously try to design a car with tank-drive (an ACTUAL car) and a ship (or boat, I'm not picky) made of stone.
  • When you know your computer has exactly 150,338 files.
  • When you can fall in love with a design.

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

- When in a math problem you're told to make a rectangle with random dimensions, and you choose 27x54
- When you open the new kit of parts and it's more exciting than opening presents on Christmas
- When you eat Subway and suddenly think you're at a robotics competition again (Getting subway for lunch is sort of a tradition for me and a few members of my team)
- You can look at any part of the robot and remember all the manufacturing, design prints, and laughs that were had during the time of building and assembling it

When you type "c" into your Chrome navigation bar and Chief Delphi is automatically filled in.

(Actually...this might be quite common).

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

when someone's glasses break, you ask what screwdriver head and size they need while showing them a complete computer repair kit you just pulled from your backpack just from being used to using it on the wires at robotics.

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

When you confuse your AP Physics teacher and an IB physics teacher on your overly complex gearbox/torque/energy loss gearing question, which you yourself cannot seem to figure out. (Happened today)

When you want to list FRC as your job so you can drive there with a Junior's License (NY Rules)

When you put your house wifi together blindfolded because you've done it so many times at robot demos

Your most posted facebook links are from Andymark and Vex on your friends' walls, some of whom are on other teams

When you do wattage calculations on your Christmas lights

When you know how to strip wires with both lineman's and needlenose pliers, because the wire strippers were never in the drawer

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

When instead of working on the draft of the college research paper due in 9 hours, you stare at code and documentation with music blasting in your headset trying to figure out how mechanum drive works in C++ (needless to say it's not working out too well)

When you're not allowed in certain rooms of your house because that's where the game animation is being made.

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

When it is almost 3:00 in the morning and you can't sleep, so you spend hours reading old posts.
Also when you realize you can remember back to when this thread started almost 6 years ago now, and think about what you wanted to post back then.
