Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

We have two student geniusprogrammers. One of them is in 9th grade and weighs about 80 pounds.

Q. Is the robot having bad problems?
A. It must be bad. The skinny little kid is working on it.

That was a compliment, actually.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"IT CAME OUT MY NOSE!!"...

Now for the rest of the story...you guys in the north won't know what I'm talking about but down here in south Texas they sell a ton of specialty Mexican seasonings and one is called Tajin (pronounced Ta-heen) (very good on fruit). SO, one of our brilliant team members, in a fit of frustration over parts not working right, dumped about a tablespoon of Tajin in his mouth and then took a BIG swig of Coke...WELL it seems that when Tajin and Coke mix there is a MASSIVE chemical reaction that causes more fizz than you've ever seen in your entire life to form (think Mentos and Diet Coke)...and this occurred in his mouth...he ran for the trashcan, spit everything out and came up for air yelling,..."It came out my nose!!!"...

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

A watermain exploded in our facility, so the carpet around the field was wet. Unknowingly, I sat down, soaked my pants, got back up, and went somewhere else. After two guys discover this:
Tom: "Haha. You have a wet butt. You know what? Your name is now WetButt.:
Soloman: "Yeah, that's good, WetButt. We could call her WB."
Me: "Guys..not funny..."
Tom: "Oh wait a minute. Did you poop your pants? Hah, WetButt pooped her pants!"
Soloman: "Jeez, you couldn't even hold it in?"
I started laughing and had to slap them.. and they are seniors!

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Are you bigger-izing the hole?"
The hole that we had drilled in a piece of tread was to small, so I was twirling an alan wrench in there to expand it a little more, and a mentor walked up and said that.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Me: Let me come inside.
Mentor: Thank you!
Me: Huh? Oh I get it...yay we have something for chief delphi!

----------------------------------

A city alderman was given a tour of our program at the school. He asked one of the mentors to describe what the robot did and his response was, "Well, it gobbles up the balls, and cradles them until it spits them out."

Our mentor likes Arnold Schwarzenegger accents too... "Dang git"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I don't think this soldering iron is working"
"John, that's a paper clip"

We now refer to paper clips as "John-solder"

"The robot might oscillate slightly"--said about a second before the robot spun wildly.

"So, theoretically our autonomous works--but keep in mind that it theoretically worked last year and it still destroyed the practice field"

"The relays do not require incremental backups"--me, after one of our electronics people decided to "replace" a spike be putting on a new one and just leaving the original one sitting there

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

So a few other people and I were sitting around the programming table, cause there wasn't really much else to do at the moment, and one of the newbs comes up from down stairs and we ask what he's doing?
Newb: They told me to go get a wrench.
Us: Oh, ok.

a few minutes later the newb walks past in the opposite direction to head back to the group below, holding pliers...

Me: Those didn't took much like a wrench...
Others: Yeah...they weren't...

a few minutes later the kid comes back hanging his head to get the wrench...
and walks past again with something else...still not a wrench...

I dont think that counts, it was not a build season quote. This is probably not the place for it. Good quote though.

It has gotten to the point now that when we call our local Dominos, they answer the phone and say "Is this that robotics club again?" and usually guess our order!!

"Boraas isnt THAT much of a crazy lunatic..."

"That what she said..." (a billion times)

"Today, we shall teach the robot to feel love."

"Epic fail."

"T.F.R."

"Wait, THATS what '<3' means???"

"Oh my god! Get that out of your nose!"

"I soo think 'Eye of the Tiger should be our theme song."

"That's a stupid quote."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our team members brought in a ton of food today because it's Valentine's Day.

"Valentine's Day tastes good."

"It's Valentine's Day- robotics style!"
"No, more like Valentine's Day- diabetes style!"


"Are you a cannibal?"
"No... I'm a huggable!"
