It's all about "love taps" with the hammer.... "don't worry robot, this won't hurt a bit... I just have to get the bearings that expanded and jammed while welding out..."

That's just the thing about plastic or brass gears; they tend to morph into plastic or brass washers real fast.

Picked this one up along the way, but I love it:

You know you're an engineer if you have no life & can prove it mathematically.

reminds me of our predicament in the robotics room. we had a really BIG TABLE in the middle of the room where ALL the parts and tools were

if you were ever looking for something, and someone said "yeah. it's on the table. " you would immediately get a very scared look in your eyes, and go enlist some freshmen to help you for the next hour or so while you rummaged through EVERYTHING on the table (giant pile)

I just heard this one at nationals:

As we were replacing a broken belt and a bad key in (opposite sides of) our robot's drive train, we found out that we had been picked. I said to our driver, who at that moment was lying on his back in a pile of tools underneath a robot with no wheels, "Looks like we got our date for the prom."

To which he responded, "Yeah, but we have nothing to wear."

That cracked me up.
