Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Both said during a Team Council meeting:

(Two students start fake-fighting)
Mentor: "If you're going to fight, at least sell tickets and turn it into a fundraising event."

(Same two students are playing with wrenches, and I take them and put them on the table. They start to reach for something else, and then there's a "THWACK" as I hit their hands with an empty water bottle I was holding)
"Someone get that bottle away from him."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Since I can't edit my last post...

We're setting up for Beta day, and several of us are coming out of the main robotics room. So Mr P. closes the door, turns off the lights, and all of a sudden we hear "I love you too, guys". Turns out we had almost locked my co-lead (Bot190) into the room. He doesn't seem happy about it.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Programmer: "Alright, I connected the cRIO to power."
Me: "Uh...why did you connect ground to the 'NC' terminal?"
Programmer: "NC means Natural Common, right?"
Me: "Good guess, but it actually stands for No Connection. Try again."

Are we talking about the control system here?

You kids with your fancy wireless code downloads and LabVIEW. Back in my day we used to have to use 15-pin connectors... both ways...and in pbasic.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

One of our mentors, as mentioned back in 2008 or 2009, is famous for his IBC's or Inappropriate Bill Comments. He named our winch system the hooker, leading to several funny quotes.

Exasperated Student after the winch jam's again: "Screw the hooker! Wait not like that!"

One time the mentor put two halves of a coconut on the bot as the school principal walked in. After hearing about 2 sentences, he left, leaving us wondering about the future of the team. (Fortunately, there were no repercussions.)

And the all hilarious St. Louis Regional. With several mishaps and mistakes (liking shattering a screwdriver by using to bend our frame back into place, and finding out our IR sensor for if a ball was in the proper spot for firing prevented going over the bumps) we had the funniest lunch break ever.

The parking garage has low ceilings and the teacher that was driving the school van said, "Shoot, I don't think the van is going to make it out. It's too tall." To which a senior replied, " That's what she said." After five minutes of everybody laughing (including the girls) we finally left, making it out with no problem. At the restaurant, one of the girls was ordering with the teacher, because she had forgot her wallet. The teacher walked up to the counter and said, " Hi, we're together. Wait! not like that. I mean we're ordering together." The other team members who were ordering screwed up (like I had to recount how much money I was supposed to give since I was laughing so hard.) And after several more funny comments, on the way back into the parking garage, we hit one of the tubes that is designed to tell you if you're going to hit the ceiling. (It is weirdly placed, inside right before the ramp up to the next level, and if you hit it, there is no way out. And for some reason, the van only hits it going in, and hits nothing else.) We all started laughing again. And when trying to park, since I was riding shotgun (unique for a freshman), I was to get out and say how much farther back he had to back up. I said he had a little bit father (meaning about two feet), and he backed up 1 inch. Everyone got, and realized that he still had 2 feet to go. After so laughing, we headed back inside to inform the rest of the team how hilarious the hour was, and on to problems with the robot.

Sigh, if only theory was real.
