Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Software freshman: "It's working. I'm scared. Oh God, did it work? Maybe it reverted my changes..."

Mentor (my dad): "Aww, you broke the thingy!"

Same software freshman: "So the students are saying, 'We need help! Let's ask the mentors!', and the mentors are saying 'We need help! Let's ask the students!'"

Me: "Someone get the scissors away from Ryan."

Mech lead: "You're on Electrical and you think you plug the battery into the Jaguar?"

Software member: "Burning smells are bad, right?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Working on interviews for Chairman's Award video:

Team member: ...and FIRST has taken my desire to be an engineer and, uh, cemented it....

Mentor, later: Cemented it? What about 'took my desire to be an engineer and cemented it, dipped it in epoxy and wrapped it in non-functional Duct Tape?'
