Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

When I was fixing our 2008 robot's steering feedback system for a demonstration. The robot is sitting on the ground so that we can test the effect of friction on the Ackermann system:
New member:So what funny stories do you have about this robot
Me:I don't know, they're not usually all that funny since they usually end in people getting hurt
*3 minutes later*
New member:What does this do?(picks up joystick)
John: DON'T TOUCH THAT IT'S THE THROTTLE!!!!
Me:Okay, that one was kind of funny

"You know, if we tweaked the color parameters, this could become a humane substitute for bullfighting"--while I was testing the color tracking by wearing a pink shirt and getting chased around by the robot

"The robot might oscillate slightly"--me, about 5 seconds before the robot starts spinning around at maximum speed(it turns out gyros are harder to use than I thought)

Me: "Okay, the robot should turn about 90 degrees now."
<robot spins around three times, I look at the code>
Me: "Oops, I told it to turn 900 degrees."
Mentor: "Well, at least it was working on it."

Mentor: "Okay, everyone needs to pitch in to pay for the pizza."
Student: "Would you like this five or this ten?"
Mentor: "The five is fine. You donate whatever you want."
Student: "I'm asking you; do you want the five or the ten."
Mentor: "I'll take the ten."
Other Student: "That's five dollars closer to Atlanta!"

Student (excitedly): "I got someone to donate $100 for Atlanta!"
Mentor: "Great; now you can fly first class."

At least one scouting sheet each day: "Sorry; watched Kilroy."

Our favorite Apples-to-Apples plays:
-Lazy: creamed corn
-Perfect: my friends
-Sensuous: largemouth bass

"They haven't updated it yet?"
-Repeated by members of various teams roughly once every five seconds as we waited for the rankings to be updated with the latest matches.

Mentor: "Let's take the shooter mechanism off the robot."
Student: "We can't do that; we're sixth in the bullpen."
Mentor: "We're not going to play in the elimination tournament."
Student: "It's always possible."
Mentor: "No; it's not. Take the shooter off."

<pop> "Awww."
-Everyone in the stands each time a balloon popped at Chesapeake.

Programmer: "So, can someone tell me why 'The Idiot's Guide to Amazing Sex' is in the Computers and Technology section?"
Builder: "They knew who would need it."

Pit Admin: "Team 1675 is looking for a universal pneumatic actuator"
Pit Admin: "Team 1675 is looking for a Schroedinger Cat Wrench"
We like to do one Pit Admin joke a regional. But the student we sent for Schroedinger's Cat just said Cat Wrench cause he couldn't pronouce Schroedinger.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

We have little pieces of tubing that stick out on our intake that we call "fingers", and when we were first testing the concept we only had one of them. Someone lost the finger, but my team was working on the intake design and I needed it. I then began yelling "SOMEONE GIVE ME THE FINGER! I NEED SOMEONE TO GIVE ME THE FINGER!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

I don't know where they came from, but at VCU they were handing out little stress-reliever moons. One of our mentors had a bunch in his backpack when he went out for lunch. When he came back, they checked his backpack, and the lady said, "You have a lot of balls"

Programming Student: "It's that tan thing..."
Programming Mentor, also the student's dad: "It's not tan, it's beige"
*continued debate about the differences between tan and beige*
Mentor: "I hope you two aren't discussing makeup"

They're all guys.

"Let me get the whatchamahoosit..."--Me

Watchamahoosit--my term for the bumper measuring device used at the L.A. Regional. It could measure: bumper height, trailer hitch height, and tongue clearance. With a little ingenuity, you could also check the length of a bumper segment.

During build season:
"Wait, are you duct taping PVC onto 80/20?!"

"Does PVC rust?"

This is in the pits.

Corey-"Richard, go ask for 20 inches of chain at pit admin"
*I go up to the table wearing this hat*
Me- "Hi, 1793 nee-"
Pit Admin Lady- "OOhhh those ears are so cute!"
Me- "yeah, can I ask for the part now?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Mark was trying to explain what had happened during alliance selections at what I believe was Cass Tech:

Mark: "So you've got 67 and 217, who else would you choose?"
Me: "Well, who was there?"
Mark: "That doesn't matter"
Me: "67 and 217...Well, in that case, I'd choose 1902. I want to see Exploding Chicken!"
Mark: "One big FIRST barbecue..."

Edit: My 217th post. Loving how the Thunderchickens are mentioned in it.
