Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While brain storming for our animation, the head animation mentor said:
"Animation is like the illegitamate red-headed step child that nobody wants."


this is really amussing with all the speculation about animation and how long it will be around....

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I don't know what we're doing but we're going to build something!"

I'm at a meeting right now and just overheard a mentor saying this while typing something. I had to get it on here before I forgot.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

How about " The programmers will kill you if you want that done on the robot!!!" this is what our camera man/ animation mentor Frank told us whenever we wanted something complicated for the robot

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Someone was testing a suction mechanism. When asked what he said he was doing, he simply replied: "Sucking."

I get the feeling this isn't the first time this has come up

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Freshman: "What has being on the Chop Shop taught me? Well, I've learned to drill and screw."

(after relaying this story)
Student: "Did she mention pounding?"

(We're announcing the ConOps, and our teammate is on a friend's laptop through Skype)
Student 2: "Guys! John's raising his hand!"
(After we put our heads down for voting)
Mentor: "John, did you just have your head down?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Hm...maybe we should actually measure this..."
[Overheard last comment] "Wait...ACTUALLY measure?"
"Well, we've been measuring this whole time...just in Anna's"

Anna's is a unit based off a ruler I made, where the half inch between 2.5 and 3 was larger than the 2" increment between 4 and 6, and other such...markings. Basically, measuring in Anna's is employing the "That looks about right!" system.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

This wasn't in build season, but it counts:

"Uuuuh... Why isn't the bot moving?"
-Pneumatics Head

And:


Mechanical: "We don't need programmers!"

Programmer: "Well then lets just watch your hunk of metal sit on the field!"


And while we were doing our strategy matrix:


Programmer: "We need a really easy bot to build!"

Mechanical: "Why?"

Programmer: "Because we need you to build it fast so we will have time to program it!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I still think we should build a boat..." - Everyone on our team at one point or another

"It's been two days and we still aren't done building the bump..." - Me
"I still don't think it's stable enough" - Jovan
"You covered the inside in two by fours though." - Me
"Here guys I'll test it!" - Coach/Physics teacher
"Wait a second how much do you weigh!" - all of us standing there
So he just jumps on the bump and determines its good enough for us.

"Oh my lord we are going to use pneumatics and mechs this year!?" - Jeff
"This is like a dream come true for you isn't it?" Coach

"So guys when are we going to begin piecing the boat together?" Various team members again.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While finishing up the day we say what I said what I accomplished:

"gearboxes assembled, spare gearbox part ordered, figured out how to levitate"

She believed me for a minute.
