After going to the Duel on the Delaware I'm all fired up about Ramp Riot- just wondering who's planning to come..

Miss Daisy's waiting for y'all- and she's a bachelorette (hint hint hint)

I believe it is official that WATTNESS, team 84, will be attending the event!

.....hmmm.... Chuck is only 6, but it's never to young to go on a date!

woah, i'm not sure daisy should be dating so much older. Anyone know a good chaperone? daisy's about 5 years younger than chuck, so it's only appropriate.

It'll be nice to see all you guys at Ramp Riot... btw, you may need earplugs. Does anyone from Moe have any left? We're planning to be ALOT louder than Duel on the Delaware...

DAISIES ROCK!!!

Team 87 is fired up and ready to kick some booty at Ramp riot. we are still riding high off that win at the Duel on the Delaware. I have no clue how old diablo is but im sure he would burn Miss Daisy.

That reminds me of a story from Virginia regionals last year. we have this really small girl on our team(probally less than 5 ft tall) and as a joke she decided to climb up into the overhead storage bin on out charter bus. she thought she would be up there for about 5 minutes while we waited for our advisors and some other team members to get on the bus. about 30 mins later everyone else got on the bus. our advisor started roll call. when he got to her name, she poked her head out of the bin and said "Here." it was so darn funny when she did that. everyone on the bus was laughing for a long time. she earned the nickname Luggage after that

daisy has a seedling herself, so it's all good. young male robots, eh? don't know any of those... we got all girls with us here.

No one can beat Wiss's green pimp hat. It seems to make our team's guys desireable (hey, it's an improvement for them...).

ok, enough beating on the guys... i should be doing homework or something...

10-24-2002, 03:44 PM
Homework?

:P

dixonij
10-24-2002, 03:53 PM
we dont have any mini-bots. we do have a nice big extending rod on our bot. it does its job well.(when it works)
It used to have a spring loaded deployer but it broke before the duel at our newbie meeting (#%#%#%#% those newbies, they gotta know our bot has sensitive handling. They just go and ram the joystick in the direction they want to go.) we now have to jerk the bot to make it fall down.

It's a improvement for us, eh?... Talking smack, eh?... But I gotta agree that the hat is part of our legacy- lots of good memories come with it.

I just thought of something- we had the hat for Tom and Hephaestus but what are we gonna use about Daisy? Do we get her one of those hats with Bob Marley dreads? Or do we get her a Queen Elizabeth hat?

Mike Schroeder
10-24-2002, 10:23 PM
hats your talking about hats, well how about a 30lbs hat that has dancing hula girls on it is that enough of a pimp hat for you, evulish thats right i am pimp daddy volcano man

naah the ditzy girls after all the hot techie guys come with the territory. if they last the season, they get a bit of respect, but most of em will be lucky to last a month! yeah, we've lost some already.

oh, and btw, yes, i was talking smack. whatcha gonna do about it? hmmm?
and who gets to wear the 30lb hat? love to see that!

The worst thing about newbies-
You arrive to the 1 1/2 hour long meeting and realize that all of the chairs have been taken.

What am I going to do about it? I'll talk some smack too-

Ashley Weed
10-25-2002, 04:01 PM
At least they bother to show up.

10-25-2002, 07:07 PM
this thread has become a major center for talking smack.
I LIKE IT!!!!!!
Its good to release all our frustrations. (222 you are NOT gonna win Ramp riot)
anyway, those darn newbies can be pretty annoying. Of course when i was a newbie, i definitely wasnt annoying ;) .

my next two Saturdays are booked!!! this weekend Homecoming, next week Ramp Riot(we're gonna win) life cant get any better than this

10-25-2002, 07:53 PM
So 87 how many hours of training do your newbs have??


At the DD we sent our newbs out for 2 of the 5 matches. The two newbs we sent out both had about 15 minutes of practice prior to drive at this competition!!
(not to make fun of them)
Get this, the first match we sent them out, we started our robot backwards so we could get the goal faster and instead of pulling the joystick backwards he pushed it forwards and hit the wall.......

Neither of them totally know exactly how the game works.

Forget coaching them, (I was the coach) the first need to learn how to drive this thing, let alone tell them to go do something.

I am also glad to hear that team 222 the TIGERTRONS are part of your frustrations (whats seems to be your problem?)
IT is going to be even a bigger problem when we CRUSH you.

Maybe you should attent homecoming instead of RR....... LOL

Enough smack?

10-25-2002, 07:54 PM
Hate to tell ya, but it isn't gonna be a walk in the park to beat us or even come close...... this time we are letting our scret weapon.....aka BADBRAD outta the bag!!!! He's been well prepped since he was a middle schooler and has sobe runnin through his vains....he is the force to be reckoned with! Good luck to all at Ramp Riot....can't wait to see ya there!

10-25-2002, 08:04 PM
Frustrations...what seems to be troubling you....are you losing sleep....feeling on edge, or are you just not sure about yourself...
Well, step into my office I have taken a fine psychology course at Penn State and I am sure I coudl help you with any problems.....lol

dixonij
10-25-2002, 08:22 PM
thats quite alright guys
actually i only ment the smack talk to be playful
you arent part of our frustration. actually i only remember what your robot looks like. too busy with otherthings to even care about you.(sorry about the way it came out)
I have no idea how many hours Shawn (our driver) had of practice
but it was more than 15 mins. the one match we did awful in was not with Shawn at driver.
i basically am the lone voice of team 87 on these message boards. I gotta make up for my teams lack of posters.

if you read it correctly it would be read as my homecoming is 10/26 and Ramp Riot is 11/2.
oh, and thats enough smack. ill stop if you stop. just bring it to Ramp Riot. that is all.

If you see a post from team 87. It was from ME!!!

Glad to see everyone made up and is all happy now. MOE is starting to gear up for Ramp Riot and is coming with a mission: to finally win a competition. We finally made it to the finals, but we got killed. We figured out how to not have that happen again though- call it counterstrategery, or at least, thats what Bush would call it. Anyway, I hope to see all of you there, and I wish you all good luck.

Hey, why not take a little break from "Smack Talk" and collect some food cans for the competition. You'll win a trophy, a Home Depot card and you'll still have some time left over to complain about rookies. Just a suggestion.

Sorry to revisit the smack talk, but I just wanted to make a statement since I missed the posting last night due to a retched football game.

team222badbrad
So how many hours of training do you have??


Well, here at team 84 we will let you calculate the time.... driving since PARC May 2001. In addition, ranked #10 overall, (out of all divisions; 291 teams), at the 2002 Championship.

have fun guys, boy some of you need to be cooled off, relax, have some fun, this is an off-season competition for a reason. i don't want to have to break up any fights at our competition, what would our school think of that?!:eek:

glad to see that someone's already packed, a little early eh? sure you don't want to fix anything up?

i have a plea for anyone out there....do any of your schools have S-video cable in long lengths? We had this great idea to send up this awesome video system in the gym b/c a lot of us on the team take our tv lab class here and thought it would be neat. unfortunately the $500 S-video cable price tag stopped us in our tracks and made us re-think some stuff. if anyone could help or offer suggestions that would be great, i know that north penn has a large tv studio bus, anyone from there read these boards?!

There is nothing better than a hockey lovin', robotics nut.

I still drag my tired bones onto the ice at least twice a month.

We also have a few student hockey players on our team. Maybe we should start a FIRST hockey league to played in the parking lot at regionals, with a championship on Einstein Rink in FLA.

Then again, I don't think we would pass the "gracious professionalism" test.
