Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Here are some quotes that I heard today:

"I'm a game piece! I'm a game piece!"-Matt, running around with a game piece around his neck

"I could use this, y'know...if it wasn't broken."-Me

Jared: "I don't think those will fit in the elevator"
Me: "You can fit anything in an elevator if you try hard enough!"

Dominic: "We seem to be getting somewhere"
Mr.Leech: "Excellent!"

"And I'll tell you this and more...right after lunch."-Jared

"Muffins are made of bran!"-unknown student

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

When joking around about slogans for our team...

"Team 1768, We CAD chain one link at a time."

We just switched CAD programs before the season so there was a point when one of our CAD guys just started assembling individual links.

When talking about the 3/8 nuts that came in the KOP...

"Hey, do you have my golden nuts"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Head advisor for team: "Excuse me!" (jokingly indignant)
Me: "There is no excuse for you"

Head advisor: "Do you want it centered on the front side of the L-channel or the back?"
Me: "Back"
HA: "Why?"
Me: "That's where the party's at"

Head Advisor: "That doesn't quite line up, we might have to drill that out a bit"
Me: "Don't worry about it"
HA: "I don't like it, we need to fix it"
Me: "I said don't worry about it"

Someone: *something* "is not working, can you check your code?"
Me: "Its the hardware, it's always the hardware, never my code."


Me: "Don't worry about it"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"The robot is horribly overweight. We need to delete some code"

Me to team member named Charlie: You're job is to make sure i don't mess up.
5 minutes later I try to tap a hole that I forgot to drill all the way through
Me: CHARLIE!!!! WHAT DID YOU DO?


our engineering lead: Think not what a robot can do for you, but what you can do to get the sucker done. Now.

Mentor: What if we tried a turret idea?
Everyone in our workshop: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
(We've had a lot of bad experiences with turret designs)



Rookie: What if we pulled up the tubes with suction?
Engineering lead: hahahaha. That would never work.
5 minutes later...
Mentor: We should do suction!!!!

(Our current design is to use suction. The rookie will never let us forget that it was his idea)

You know, back in the days of IFI we filled up the temporary storage areas a few times. I don't remember the specifics, but the solution was to randomly refactor the code and try again. If you split up a single calculation into multiple steps that still achieved the same result, it would somehow "fit" better.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Build Lead to Me: "These brackets are a little too far apart. You need to fix that in code."

For a second I thought he was serious I then explained that code can't fix that.

And I can't believe I forgot:
Me to mentor: "I know those aren't cut all the way but I guarantee that those wires are not touching" *turns on battery, sees spark and hears snap* "abouuuuuuuut that, I didn't think they were touching". the second thing was said after yanking the breaker out of where those wires were connected on the PDB

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

From last night:

Student #1: We need to drill the holes in electronics tray (at the bottom of the robot) to mount the line following sensors.
Student #2: So we are going to pick the whole robot up and put it in the drill press?
Student #1: *Laughs*
Mentor: *Shakes Head*
