Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Running programming tests on our arm.....

We run the arm all the way to the max "up" position and the programmer realizes he forgot to load the second part of the code that allows it to go down.

A new mentor that joined the team 3 days ago yelled from across the room "Hey guys if you cant get that thing down within 4 hours you better call a doctor"

I am not not sure what was funnier the joke or the fact that out of about 30 kids in the build room only 2 of us got it......

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

So this one was over a period of time when we went to dinner and one of our guys was txting us. We had said that we got some strippers and hookers. We have a cage in our school which is where we put all of our robotics stuff. He told us to put the strippers and hookers inside the cage for him tmr. Our friend replied okay but your getting seconds. The next day he came in asking, so where are my strippers and hookers, we proceed to pull out strippers and the hook side of velcro. The look on his face and the laugh that went around were pretty funny.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I need the adjustable hammer"
"You mean that wren-"
"No, it's a hammer"

Student 1: "We really should label all of these"
Student 2: "Forget it, we don't have time"
Mentor (a minute later): "Shouldn't you be labeling those?"

Student holding wires together to be soldered: "Hold on I have to sneez- AH CHOO"
Student soldering: "OUCH @$%#&*(^#" (the wires moving caused solder to drip onto some exposed part of his body)

"Can I wipe my blood on the robot?" *holds up bleeding finger*
"Of course you can!"

There was also five or ten minutes when the answer to every question was "We can fix it in the code"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

I think my favorite this year was. . .

"it has to work it worked in cardboard"

this comes from a few years ago when one of our engineers was quoted "it worked in CAD" after the design drawn in CAD ended in failure as a completed part, so this year two protypes were made by students in cardboard and both ended in great success.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

I was vacuuming metal bits off of the robot. When I got to the electronics board, a mentor said, "Stop! You're sucking out all of the electrons!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Who is Ben T. and why does this belong to him?" -Team member looking at a tetrix axle wrapped in blue painters tape at one end which has the word "BENT" written on it to inform people tat it is, in fact bent. The scary part is, I'm not sure whether or not he was kidding.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Me: Is that safe?
Mentor: Yes. Wait. Define safe.
Me: Should I do it?
Mentor: No. It's not safe for you to do, but I can do it safely.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

[RS means random student(s)]

RS: "Whats a pillow block?"
Me: "The thing in the pillow block drawer"
RS: "Where are the Allen wrenches?"
Me: "Allen Wrench Drawer"
RS: "Where does this thing go?" (It's a center punch)
Me: " Punch Drawer"
RS: "I need to mark something. Where's the sharpie?"
Me: "Sharpie draw-, wait. Sorry. The robotics cabinet, third shelf"

C: "EVERYTHING has a drawer, except for the sharpies because they are myhtical creatures that like to roam free in their domain."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Some of Overdrive's favorites (from our FRC days):


"But if you put it away I won't be able to find it!"


-talking about a pair of wire strippers-
James: There, now you have an awesome pair of strippers. Wait...


-After the girls ran into the basement to initiate a very one-sided pillow fight against the guys at 5 am during a sleepover at our Head Coach's house. The other guys see James pulling a table over his sleeping bag and ask him what he's doing-

James: I'm making an anti-girl device
other guys: James, you are an anti-girl device!


or the classic:

-Our engineering mentor, Mr. Wittel-
*crossing arms and sitting down*
"Ahhh. I love work. I could watch it all day."

Mentor:I have a disease with no cure.
Student: What's that?
Mentor:It's called optic rectumitus.
Student: What does that mean?
Mentor: It means I have a crappy outlook on life.
Student:OH.

Mentor to student about a precise freehand sketch: "Let's see, you did this thing right, and you did this part right, so why couldn't you do this part right!?"
