"We have a policy against male harmonizing. Stop singing. Violators will be shot."

"I blame everything on Katherine. Until it works, then I take responsibility"

<typing article>
"The Killer Bees productively work at the Chrysler Tech Center, Chrysler's world headquarters, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday"
"That dosen't sound right. It sounds like this is only the headquarters on those days"

Tim: "Now we need a large quantity of wooshers (washers) for this."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"If anyone believes a significant discrepancy to exist between a speaker’s and listener’s interpretation of a single statement, he or she may require both parties, beginning with the speaker, to restate their interpretations of the statement using the most explicit, unambiguous language possible, with reconciliation of the interpretations to follow if they are found to differ." - The Clarity Clause

In a shop full of nuts, screws, springs, balls, rods, and wood, too many "that's what she said" jokes were interfering with our ability to get work done, so I instituted this. Basically, if you make an innuendo and get called on it, you have to publicly state to the rest of the team exactly what you meant in the most explicit terms you can think of. After this, the sex jokes stopped almost instantly.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

One of our mentors is Russian. "In the soviet Russia, Computer program you!"

"When in doubt, zip-tie it."

"Guys, why is there a statue on the robot?"

"He destoryed one of the old bots again!"

"If you hear the robot tick, Pyro-boy was doing the wiring."

"Why are the Jaguars upside down?"

"GUYS! THE SOLDERING IRON IS ON THE FLOOR!" "Teacher won't like that..."

and best of all:
Programming Mentor: "The light isn't blinking, theres no connection! All the wires are plugged in, WHY ISN'T IT WORKING?"
Me: "Because I haven't turned it on yet."
PM: "Oh. Alright, lets do it."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"If we have to stay the whole night to finish programming the robot, I call dibs on napping in the deflated trackball."

Builder #1 - "It won't fit, it needs a bigger hole"
Builder #2 - "Alright, I'll get the Red Baron"
(The Red Baron is our power drill)

"Why do we have a red microwave named Mother Russia?"

"Who put a label on the label maker?"

"Yeah, we named the development platform Debbie"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Apparently we needed to borrow a motor from a previous robot to do some testing, but we were too lazy to actually remove it from the robot so we had to connect the two bots. This was the conversation preceding that event:

Mentor 1: We're going to mate some robots now.
Everyone: [Assorted responses of "WHAT?" or "HUH?" or "...like with CAD, or in real life?"]
Mentor 1: If you're curious, come and see.
Student: ...I think the real question is if the ROBOTS are curious...

As many of the students were leaving to see the robots mate:

Mentor 2: When you're done with that, come back here and we'll talk about these screws and how they went wrong!

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

CAD student: Umm... does anyone know what a .vi file is? There's one on this flash drive and I don't know what it is.
Me: That's for our programming.
CAD student: Oh, good! I thought it was some kind of virus or something.
Me: No, .vi does NOT stand for "virus."
CAD student: Phew!

"What if the sun is moving at like light speed, and the Earth is moving at like light speed, and that's why it makes the ellipses around the Sun, and then if we slowed the Sun down, we would age slower."

-One of our student's discussing his knowledge of special relativity
