You know you're addicted to FIRST when...


#1781

When you put the same amount of effort into trying to figure out your class schedule two weeks early as you did attempting to decode “9328490238209”


#1782

You spend a day of your weekend discussing the attributes of pockets in women’s clothing on the Internet…


#1783

You see an xkcd comic that refers to mecanum wheels as omni wheels and it hurts.


#1784

You then proceed to read all of the comics with numbers corresponding to your friend’s teams.


#1785

You’re bored so you add 25 photos to The Blue Alliance.


#1786

You procrastinate on your homework by researching things for your team, and eventually go down a rabbit hole of “oh what can this thing (which isn’t related to what you are originally searching) do” for hours.


#1787

Second to last one is amazing:) :slight_smile:


#1788

You drive almost 200 miles to volunteer at an offseason event your team isn’t at.


#1789

You read FTC as FIRST Tech Challenge AND the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, before you even think about the Federal Trade Commission.


#1790

When you had a full day, then an all night laser tag party, then an academic decathlon competition and still go to robotics (basically no sleep for 48 hours)

…when this thread is the only way you stay awake in class

…you’re seriously considering buying an Xbox just to play a 4 year old FRC simulation game.

HAHA

… … …
-When you get a new backpack to fit your school laptop and your cad laptop
-When you are willing to stay after school from 2pm-4pm for robotics to start then end at 8pm
-When you start use your “free time” to work on cad projects instead of doing something fun
-When you wonder why the chief delphi smilies aren’t on ios/android yet
-When you become interested in the idea of MIT making robots to play football for them
-When you drop out of the school swim team because it takes place during build season
-When you spend more time with your robotics team than your family, friends, and significant other


#1794

You’re legitimately thinking about flying over 2,000 miles to volunteer at an offseason event.


#1795

Holy cow, which event?


#1796

this is what you consider a “good meme”

#1797

You know you’re addicted to FIRST when your first reaction to Donald Trumps immigration executive order is to figure out whether it effects any FRC teams.


#1798

Beantown Blitz, mainly cause it seems super chill, the timing works, and I like visiting the Boston area. Not to mention I can probably pass it off as a conveniently scheduled college visit trip :stuck_out_tongue:


#1799

you know you’re addicted to first when…

  • you’re getting a team-related tattoo
  • you think about going to robotics all day
  • you dream of competition
  • Robotics is the only thing getting you up on Saturdays.

When your “friends” joke that your programming computer is your “wife”.
