Go to Post But if we just re-play "Triple Play" then what in the world will the Game Design Committee do with all that new-found free time? Since they wouldn't have to come up with a new game, they would have to concentrate on other things - like how to enforce the proposed "no metal on robots" rule. - dlavery [more]

Announcer at boston: "It appears that team 639 has been unable to decide which side to cheer for"

and later: "Will team 639 ever leave the cheering area?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our animation mentor is a mechanical engineer so he doubles up helping out with the robot.
Kind of a good example of the difference between how a mechanical engineer thinks and how a programmer thinks.

Animation Mentor: Darn it, I think I tied the sting on the wrong side of the window motor. Ah well, I can always untie and retie it when we figure out which direction the motor is rotating.

Programming Mentor: (points at the AM) No we don't! We can CHANGE it in the code!

Animation Mentor: well...(points back at PM) I don't care! I'm animation!

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

(I'm sorry about this long lead-up to the actual content. A thorough understanding of what you are about to hear is necessary for it to actually make sense)
About half of the people on our robotics team is an avid member of our schools table tennis club.
Today one of these multi-club members (MCM) was setting up a table, whose net-holder-bot was stripped at and around the length of the threads required to apply any force to the table.
Our club meets in the cafeteria. One of the other MCMs notices him walking toward the broken net-holder, holding three wrapped straws and two plastic knives.
MCM 1 looks MCM 2 in the eyes and says with a straight face:
"It's OK. I've got tools."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Not really during build season, but last week in class (our robotics team is run as a class for an elective credit), I was half asleep with a headache, and while organizing the tool chest:
R: *pulls out small box of random drill bits* This definitely needs to be organized.
Me: Yeah, just a bit.
R: Ha, I see what you did there...
Me: What? Oh, wait...

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Something I just remembered. Someone stuck a sticker on our robot saying: "Do not use as a flotation device."

And by the way, I DON'T know why it was stuck on there.
