What I Learned In FIRST This Year...

Hi all!

Its friday, I am bored, so I decided to be a little creative. Here are a few equations that you may or may not be able to relate to.

What I learned in FIRST this year...

1. Gearbox X 2 = Heavy

2. Einstien Field Sound System + Curie Field Sound System = Bargled

3. (Robots + Steps) = Tipsy = (Robot + Ball)

4. Beatty + Hammond = Gold Metal ^ 4

5. (Contraversy / 2) + Gracious Professionalism = Cheesy Poofs and Kingman

6. Dave Lavery + Pimp Hat = Funny! (Thats Pimp Dave)

7. Bowling + 121 = New Shirt for Andy

8. Northeast - Defense = Midwest

9. Kindergarten = Hard

10. I = JVN

Hope ya liked! Anyone else have any good ones?

Re: What I Learned In FIRST This Year...

11. Curie + Mark Leon = t3h awesome
12. East coast - good teams = west coast
(Yeah, there were plenty of good west coast teams, and we're from the west coast, so don't flame me. I was just surprised that 11 of the 12 teams that made it to Einstein were from east of the Mississippi.)

Re: What I Learned In FIRST This Year...

13. 3 weeks of design + 1 week of waiting for parts = 2 weeks of build=not good cuz we get kicked out @ 11

14. not having a robot for UTC scrimmage + using last year's robot = winning it? (strange but true)

15. totally reorganizing= a lot of work for years to come, not just this past year

16. hanging onto the past + not being ready for the future = trouble in team

24. 3-jointed arm mechanism + programming it to respond to model arm controller = hard and time consuming

25. 3-jointed arm mechanism + programming it to respond to model arm controller + incorrectly bringing in the analog input and not knowing it = extremely hard and time consuming

26. food tickets + spending them = no change

27. crazy senior + tiki mask + elevator + chair + duct tape = photo opportunity

27. Mr. Cokeley + stroke medications = idea for "cool squad"

28. freshman + battery + curiosity =

29. 486 laptop + programming robot = not gonna work

30. Big Inflatable Balls = NOT for jumping on

31. Looking for fasteners the first time rather than ripping off old bot < repairing old bot after season


32. High Speed = much more fun that low speed.

Re: What I Learned In FIRST This Year...

33. 67 + 406 = a whole lotta fun*
34. 30" ball - 5" at nationals = bot that can't grab ball
35. 50 floor aviary + parachute guy + glass elevator = cool
36. completely open hotel inside + many FIRST teams = "heeeeeeeeey!" + midnight
37. 50 floor staricase = 2student + mentor + running up
38. Doubler ball + 1241's basket = awesome play
39. 340 + 1126 = awesome alliance

*406's sponsor, Denso, left them this year. They paid financially, but provided no mentorship. In the past, the Denso engineers had built the bot, so none of the students really knew how to build one. 406 asked for help, and 67 responded by letting them work in our shop with our mentors. In a way, they became part of our team. It was a great experience, for the first time they designed and built their robot, and won their first FIRST trophey. Plus, even though we weren't at the detroit regional, we got to go so we could cheer for them. Go Mustangs!
