I understand that, but it's gonna smell like a marshmallow in the electric chair.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Ok, so our mast mast wouldn't stay on the chassis when we were trying to measure height.

Me: "It won't stay!"
Mentor:"Just tape it"
Me:"We're not allowed to use tape"
Mentor:"Wow, notice how she didn't question the tape, but said that we're not allowed to use it. Ok Kara, what rule is that, then?"
Me:"I dunno...it's an <R> rule...maybe in the 30s?"
Mentor:"At least she knows that it's an <R> rule, which already makes her better than most of the team"
Other Mentor: "And she's a frosh..."
*mentor goes to check rulebook*
*he comes back*
Mentor:"It's rule <R38>"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

An engineer, referring to my computer: "What you've got here is not a computer, but rather a high-gain mistake amplifier. Sometimes it's an infinite gain mistake amplifier"

We've had it with the "your mom*" jokes, so those are gone--I get punched if I say them. Not exactly a robotics quote, but I was online and realized that my friend could not punch me through Xfire...so I used like 20 of them...and he punched me 20 times the next day...

I had quit shaving for awhile (somewhere around a month) and so I was known as "Wolf man"...I shaved and now I'm "hairless poodle"...

Mentor: This robot is probably the best one we've built.

Other Mentor: Yeah

Mentor: Hey Nick, why is it the best one?

Me: No, Rivets?

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Regan **our mentor**: What is that?
Me: a giant nut and bolt
Regan: I can see that... but why is there half a pound of weight in one nut and bolt?

followed by:
Sam: this robot needs to be bulimic

looking at the bumpers:
Rixon: what did you do?
Harrison: why are they sparkly?
Me: What? They're hott!!! I mean come on... we used stripper dust!!!
Regan: stripper dust..... good choice
**i dont think he was really paying attention to what was going on**

Written by a mentor:

3+2=4

Thing is, he was serious and it was true at the time.
