One Student on safety glasses
They are not forehead protectors, they are not chin protectors, they are eye protectors.
Another student in response
Are you sure they are not pocket protectors? *puts safety glasses in pocket after drilling*

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While we were bench testing the control system:

Mentor 1: Okay, now flip the disabled switch.
<Mentor 2 reaches for teleop/auto switch>
Mentor 1: No!
<Mentor 2 flips teleop/auto switch>
Everyone in unison: Aww...
Mentor 1: Reboot it...

It was then we realized how much of an issue the drive station's long bootup time was going to be.

Bad aluminum and crio parodies of britney spears ensue

same teacher - "Why has everyone been whistling the melody from Funky Town all night?"

Me: "It's past 11PM, we're almost done with the robot, you better finish that cart soon because we're leaving when the robot is done."
Andy: "Nope, I'm staying until this is done. As long as it takes."
Me: "Okay, but I better not find you here tomorrow morning passed out on the floor with tools in your hands. ESPECIALLY if it is a welder."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Some quotes i've heard

*my dad (a mentor) tries to demonstrate the height of the dump basket to another student by picking up a box and holding it over my head*
student " so it will be about that tall"
my dad "well know my daughter's an inch and a half taller then the height limit so about 2 inches lower"
me "sorry next time i'll shink a little bit"

"wait i think the robot is too tall"
*i climb on top of the bench and slide my foot out of my shoe*
"nope we're good i'm eye level with the top"

"what do u mean it where its supposed to be i just check there and ...Oh never mind"

me"i know its not nearly as exciting as the first real time of driving the completed robot but in the back they just finished painting the shipping crate and we think it looks pretty good"

Me to a friend about the painting on the shipping crate (btw we named the hawk hawkie) "no offense to her painting skills/laziness but it looks like someone hit hawkie over the head with a frying pan"
"ehh only a little"

"these r really fun to play with"
"omg they are"
*me and a friend making the limit switches/microswitches click*

morning of ship day
"what do u mean we never put something on to hold the battery"

In relation to the above
head of electrical/president "shouldn't mechanical be doing this"
me "yeah but i'm busy doing something else" *i was providing mental support for my friend who was painting the crate*

"what do u mean chris is working his job is to be here"

friday after school
me "finally time for me to have a little bit of a social life"
teacher "ur not allowed to have a social life outside of robotics what is this social life you speak of"

*after testing out ball feeding system for the first time when it it stops working because the magic orange rope slipped of the pulley*
"hey it actually works... mostly"


thats all i can think of right now
