We just did an inventory of the entire kit. It says somewhere in the manual that there should be a item called sleep. It says check the grey bin. I've been looking for the past two days and I cannot find it.

Can anyone help?

ps. I know what I'm building, do you? :D :p

whats that, i believe our team has been trying to find it over the last three years but FIRST seems to forget it every year, or we lose it, one or the other. Hopefully somebody finds it one day, or FIRST ships some, but i dont think it will be coming anytime soon so dont get your hopes up.

Sleep is a thing for the simple of mind.
In sleep we begin to think, and in thinking we come up with ideas and reason thoughts.
Ideas are bad.
Thinking is bad.
Reason is bad.

Besides, in sleep we are unable to defend against those bloody sheep.

Sleep...maybe it's in that pulley bag I never got. Or maybe it's with the software that I haven't gotten yet. Or maybe it's right next to the van door motor. Oh wait! I know! I remember! I paid $5000 to be able to give sleep away! Hmm...the more I think about it, I think I may have gotten shafted with that deal.

To quote one of the Actors from the movie Pitch Black; "It's amazing how you can go with out the necessities, as long as you have some of the little luxaries."

20 hours, wow, i believe each of the last three years i have usually spent 35 hours of a 36 hour period at school. Last year i believe it was arrive 700 am Mon, go home at 530 am tues, come back at 630 am tues, and leave about 630 pm tues, essentially giving me a 24 hour shift, working on the robot from 3pm mon to 5 pm tues. Of course tues was ship day and we had a litle work to do, but hey like another said, sleep is for the weak minded.

but was it on your birthday? that's what I'm getting at... we all put in insane hours during FIRST season... everyone shows their dedication in their own way...

In the F.I.R.S.T. rule book, Page 14.5, Rule 3.14159, it states "Sleep will not be shipped till 4/28/02". It is on a first come, first served basis and there is a waiting list a mile long. :D

As far as I'm concerned sleep is overrated.

Since when does pi (the Greek letter, not the food) have anything to do with sleep?

We never have too much of a problem getting sleep, unless its from designing robots instead of sleep. We get kicked out of our school at midnight. Fortunately, we can get back in around 4am......

Ah a simple question,

The odds of finding the total number of pi 3.14xxxxxxx is better than the odds of finding sleep during the build season of FIRST.

Anton, can you please share the specs? I've been wondering what they would be.
*glad Anton is back so there's entertainment on the boards*
BTW, John V my birthday was the other day and while we weren't pulling an all nighter yet we were up late trying to argue designs and strategies. Last year, my 18th birthday revolved around childish fights betwen mentors. Thats always fun...

carolyn, i share your... pain?

Personally I get a masochistic pleasure from it all...
at least this year after we ship the robot I can celebrate my bday somewhere other than a machine shop...

Touche.

Actually, we get very minimal sleep during the build season. And, since a circle is made of an infinite number of points/sides, there is no exact value for pi. Therefore, you're statement is kinda wrong, but it makes a hell of a lot of sense.

My brain hurts...
