Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Electrical mentor: "How many software engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"
Me: "I don't know, how many?"
Mentor: "None, it's a hardware problem."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"%&!#$&!%#$&%#!$ IS THIS THING THREADED BACKWARD?!?!?!?!?!?!??"

-me, after some genius (me) had the bright idea of putting the allen-wrench end of an allen bolt on the inside of the C-channel, with a piece of plywood above it.

Took me twenty minutes to get the thing out, along with three different allen wrenches, two socket wrenches, four pairs of pliers, and a fair amount of yelling at the stupid bolt to GET THE $!&%$#&!% OUT OF THERE!!!!

I think I need to think ahead more

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

This is what happens at "interdisciplinary team progress review" meetings

Programmer:We're still having some issues with the threading on the camera code
Mechanist:What, the threads got stripped?
Programmer:What? No, it's a multi-threaded program but some of the threads are using too much CPU time
Mechanist:Multi-threaded?

This lead to a ten-minute discussion of uses of the word "thread".

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Not technically build season, but at a recruiting event, some kid came up and asked if the robot could "RUN ME OVER!?" to which our mentor responded with a yell, "NO!" and then "well, it could..."

Mine (from during the competition season):
"Looking forward to the opportunity to breakaway from work and join the lunacy at the LA FIRST competition. Just as long as our team keeps aiming high and triple-playing the competition, maybe we can raise the bar over previous years and go into overdrive in Atlanta!"

Another Mentor's reply to above:
"Might be in double trouble for those diabolical dynamics. Hope your zone zeal does not lead you to rack 'n' roll all over the place, unless you ramp and roll into rug rage."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

At Clemson, we had an hour to kill so we walked up to the graveyard to explore and we found an abandoned cell phone sitting on a rock. One of my friends picked it up and looked at the pics to see whos it was (it was slightly creepy that all the pics showed only half of the guys face). Anyway, we put it back and then throughout the rest of the weekend:
"OMG is that the guy from that phone we found in the cemetery?"
"He does look like him, but his nose is too small..."
"He could have had surgery"
"Well he could have dyed his hair too, changed his eye color..."
"You are introducing way too many variables into the situation so lets just go ask him for buttons and move on."
