Here we see the painstaking process of color-coding the driver's hands, to ensure polarity is observed.

Yippie Skippy! Now, maybe, just maybe, Tytus [random Floridian] will let me play with his Barbie doll collection.

JaneYoung

*sigh* - I didn't realize that building the team image takes longer than building the robot.

Zyik
12-02-2007, 10:13 PM
How did I get talked into this? ...again? The things I do for this team.

EricH

Greg Needel
12-02-2007, 11:29 PM

"And so Tayler told me Skylar and Dakota were like, no way! And I was like, no you didn't! And she was totally like uh-huh, and Amber and Tiffany were totally there and stuff."


(I'll leave it up to you, plucky reader, to determine which of the subjects in this photograph is doing the talking.)

Cynette

Wayne Doenges

This little piggy went to the Championship
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had a great traction system
This little piggy did not
This little piggy joined Team 1902 and went Wee Wee Oink Oink BOOM

Peter: Ryan really needs to be more careful when handing me tools, he chipped my nails with the socket wrench... again. *sigh*

Tetraman

[She]: The idea is to use the little brush, not spend hours trying to stick your fingers into the bottle.
[He]: Oooooooh...

Al Skierkiewicz
12-05-2007, 06:42 AM
OK,
I have made my hair pink, my shoes are pink, I wear pink clothes and now my nails are pink. Just how much more do I have to do to get the judges to notice our team spirit?!?!? NO!!! I am not donning the pink underwear! A man has to do what a man has to do!

Girl, “Oh! My! Gosh! Pete, your nails are just hideous!
Once a week will not do at all.
You will have to come for a manicure twice a week during build season.”

It's okay. I've already declared myself the winner for the competition.

It's okay. I've already declared myself the winner for the competition.Wrong one. That's the OTHER Billfred-is-Working-Way-Too-Much Rule. I think this is just repeated application of the Billfred-is-Working-Way-Too-Much Rule.

Travis Hoffman

Someone create a poll, and we'll vote on best caption har.

Billfred
12-14-2007, 01:20 AM
Holy cow, I screwed up. The whole thing slipped my mind entirely after last week and this week. (And nary a PM. I'm crushed. ;))

This will be done first thing when I wake up in the morning. We'll fix it up somehow.

Clearly you are too late, Bilfred. I already declared myself the winner. I won.

KathieK
12-14-2007, 11:15 AM
Honorable mentions go to...

1) KathieK (put it in, I dare you!)I actually think it would make a great teambuilder. Let's see how many teams show up with fingernails painted in their team colors. And when someone asks you why your fingernails are pink, red, blue, green, purple, whatever, it gives yet one more opportunity to explain FIRST! :)

Kathie,
You find the tie dye nail polish and I will suggest it at a team meeting.

Kathie,
You find the tie dye nail polish and I will suggest it at a team meeting.I would thing a different color for each nail would give a tie-dye effect, but here is an official tie-dye nail polish technique...

To create a "swirly, tie-dye" effect when painting, put one drop of a contrasting color of nail polish on wet polish and use the corner of a polish brush to swirl it. Be sure to wash the brush with nail polish remover before replacing it, or the first color will run into the other bottle.

Do you think this works for camo too? :rolleyes:

JaneYoung
12-14-2007, 12:19 PM
Kathie,
You find the tie dye nail polish and I will suggest it at a team meeting.

You can get creative, Al - paint the nails multiple stripes or alternate colors.
It's fun. Kind of like wearing rainbow-colored wigs..*cough*

absolutely for camo, Cynette, absolutely!
