Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Person A: "Can we reuse the mech wheels?"
Person B: "No, as we are not allowed by the rules. Also, one robot was dropped, and the other one went across the parking lot, over the curb, up a hill, through dirt, and into the woods to grandmother's house."
Person A: "...That may pose an issue."

Love reading y'alls responses

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Discussing the 12-5v DC-DC converter at 25w, we wanted to make an anti-radar gun. This story was put forth.

Quote:
Well, back in the day, my dad was working for an FCC radar(?) testing facility outside of Boston, and they had a powerful emitter. So, before driving home every day, they'd sweep for Kband signals, and if they found them, send out a nice big juicy ping. Blowing out every radar gun in Boston.
Sounds like something an engineer would do.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

My dad is one of the mentors of my team, and after he saved us one season from having a broken robot (we call him engineering jesus), everyone started taking everything he said seriously. My dad's a real joker, so he had some fun with them. Near the end of the season, when we had to lose weight, he recommended drilling holes in the motor. They thought he was serious. They spent 30 minutes talking about it before he told them that he was joking

Seriously, WR is SSOOOO slow on the school laptop we have. It literally took 30 minutes to compile all the code one time. -_-

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

When telling the driver training people that I needed to re-image the classmate and I'd need to keep it for at least two days:

"Me: So I've put together a temporary replacement system. Unfortunately, the camera doesn't work. Because of that, I had to disable the dashboard. Also, this laptop only has one working USB port, so we can't use the I/O board. I'm not really sure if it can handle joysticks either.
Other Person: Well can it drive the robot?
Me: Probably. Oh wait, I fried the ethernet system a week ago"

Alum: "Really guys? I was on the team for five years, and the sixth one is when you get organized?"
Mentor: "I think you're missing the cause-effect relationship."

Student: "Who sent Kyle over to the build room? He just walked in asking for a thingamajig."

Student: "This hole in the wall is going to give me lung cancer."

On the whiteboard for the season: "Programming is 1% talent and 99% not getting distracted by the Internet."
