Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Screw it. No, the crate.

You know robotics has achieved a level of pure awesome when it had Grant Imahara before Mythbusters started calling him anything other than a "Myth-tern".

(But seriously, has anyone else noticed that throughout the first season or so, the Mythterns remained nameless?)

I noticed that, but I also noticed that in the recent episode all about dogs, Grant used his "Battlebot" to try and distract a guard dog. I was heartily dissappointed.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Got a new one

This conversation takes place during our hybrid testing.

ben: "How can it do that, we didn't program or build it to do that."
Kevin: "How can you question it, you just saw it."


this other quote takes place during our programming phase.


kevin: "Bugs weren't orginally called bugs, when located they can be called features."
robot flys into all.
me: "New feature."

Talking Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

alright, I got one...
We're getting on the bus before heading off to the Richmond/VCU Regionals and we're all sitting down talking and stuff. The Administrator that was seeing we got on the bus and left safe and sound quited us down to speak. When he was finished, my buddy Chance stood up and, in the dead hush of everyone said, "Does the hotel have a continental breakfast?"

Everyone busted out laughing! How he said it and the randomness of it all was what made it so hilarious. We're still laughing about it, lol.

Another one...

Setting: Wating to get into T.G.I. Fridays to get some food on thursday night.

Me: Hey, is that another robotics team right over there?

Teammate 1: yeah, I think so...

Me: Which one do you think it is?

Teammate 2: There's only one way to find out. Everyone run in yelling "2028!" and see what they do!

lol



There are more, I just have to remember them, lol. As soon as I do, I'll post them.
