Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Student: Katy can you please bring me the thingy?
Me: Sure...erm...which thingy do you want?
Student: The thingy! You know! It puts the jobber in. I dunno what its called yet.

(Me responding to hearing every toilet on the floor begin flushing)
Me: Girls...girls! Stop that immediately! The toilets are not toys!
(Turns out I was yelling at a janitor).

Student: Executive Summary...team essays...Chairmen's Submission...why do they keep asking the same questions over and over?

"No we don't have another masterlink. Lets start searching the carpet."

(followed by)

"Yesterday that excitement included driver tryouts and searching for missing pieces of I squared robot's broken chain" - Worcester Telegram and Gazette

Trinh (student to mentor): Katy I think we need to take away your hammer privileges.

Elibo: I don't understand Miss
Me: Don't call me Miss. Its weird. I'm just one year older than the seniors in your school.
Elibo: Sorry Miss.

Me: Elizabeth put your shoes on! That's very unsafe!
Elibo: But Miss I just came back from basketball practice and my feet smell bad...

Me: Guys...this music is ok to dance to...but could we listen to something else when working? This stuff is all the same song...
Mechi: You dance? To our music?
Elibo: No...you're old miss.

Mentor from another team: Doesn't that kid ever smile?
Me: She smiles when she is running the bandsaw.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Many, many times this quote came up while putting our robot together...

"Just stretch it out, it'll fit fine!"

Like when we were fitting the belt and the pulleys on our collector... they were cut to tense length, so it was hard to mount. No tensioners involved

It's hilarious when you think about it. Our robot was a strange mixture of handcut parts and precision machined and welded parts. There are no machined parts over an elevation of one foot, everything was drilled, sawed, riveted, etc. You know, to fit it all together, it just took some... stretching.

I guess another quote that came up a lot was...

"Just use carb cleaner!"

Yea. When our WD-40 can ran out, we started using carb cleaner. After we used it on out transmission. After we were all kindof woozey from the vapors. Good times.

There are some things that can solve all problems. Duct tape, carb cleaner, zip ties, clamps, 1/8" drill bits. Oh, and hammers.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

THE BEST OF ALL TIME.

upperclassman-"god, you're bossy"
me-"no, i just know what it is that YOU'RE supposed to be doing."

you ALL forget the classic "SCREW IT!!!"

we had a great convo about screws.
it involved(in order)
-screw it
-harder
-faster
-you're crooked!
-do you need the girls to do it, or can you boys handle it on your own (me)

we basically ended up having to stop work to die of laughter.


and, being one of the only girls on the team (and the only one at the meeting)

our captain: hey....we need someone to vacuum. LIBBY!!!!


and, there's one kid who can't put it thru his head that my family relations in FIRST have nothing to do with how i should be treated (i.e. he thought i was extra-special....which in SOME ways i know i am.)

same upperclassman who said i was bossy- ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY KAMEN GIRL.
*entire team kneels on floor and bows repeatedly*
"the mighty kamen girl...the mighty kamen girl...."

my team flippin' OWNS. deal.

"Where are my sensors?"

-Our head programmer, who will never let us forget that we never did put the sensors he wanted on the bot.

"He's there again, isn't he?"

-Mr. Kressly talking about me when I come up behind him to talk for the thousandth time.

Kressly: Did you come here looking for me?
me: No... This is my homeroom.

-Kressly assuming I walked into a room looking for him as I usually am, when I'm supposed to be in that room for homeroom anyway.

There's always the classic, "We're having ISSUES."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Just another of those random moments with the mentor.

Me: "My back hurts"
Mr. Jiles: "Well, you know what's worse than a bad back?"
Me: "Um.... "
Jiles: "A bad front! "

This happened when we were test-driving the robot in front of some students down the senior hallway.

Ms. Manuel: "Now, Dana, push the joystick slowly forward, and watch out for those loc-"
Me: "Whoops!"
Manuel: *sigh* "Dana...move. Just...move."

The night the FedEx guy arrived:

Ms. Payne: "Hey, let's put Dana in the crate and ship her with the robot"


Oh, and my personal favorite, the one thing I said the most during build season.

"You know what? Screw it!"

Heres a good one:

"Why the hell is the robot not turning off?"

we had a bad breaker.... The robot failed to turn off, of course the next breaker we put in shorted out.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

After the first day of regionals, I was really tired and we were walking from the tent pits at UCF to the area pits, and one of my team mates was just rambling on to me, and I just say "OMG EDDIE SHUT UP I'M TIRED" and everyone started laughing. And even today, we talked about it and laughed...don't really get why it's funny. But yeah =]

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Sell The Gazelle!!"

After ship and before our regional event, we were explaining to some of the first years about pit marketing, and the like. While explaining this we mentioned how loud the pits can get and how enthusiasm is really needed. As this is brought up, one of our student mentors comes over and reminds us of the guy that sells the exercise equipment called the Gazelle. I'm not sure how many of you have seen that infomercial but that guy is hyped. So after that we began to tell everyone to "Sell The Gazelle".

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Let's Go Have It"

If you were at the Pittsburgh Regional, you might have heard it. It is a bit of a story about how a team at a previous regional (which I wasn't at) was chanting something inaudibly, and we opted to poke fun at it with the name above.

Also worth noting, one of our team members was assigned the job of Safety Captain, and one of us coined him with the nickname "Safety Monkey", ala Penny Arcade. Well, throughout the entire regional, we all called him Safety Monkey for everything. Everything.

"Safety Monkey, I cut myself!"

"Safety Monkey, where is your gracious professionalism?"

And he even referred to himself in the third person, with the nickname.

"Safety Monkey didn't do that, now quit bothering him!"
