Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our team has a tradition where any memorable quotes are submitted to our team website, www.rvr87.org, and this year the number of submissions soured. We now have over 200. They are hilarious, and if anyone wants/needs to have one explained, they can pm me.

I like that but its counter to the standard advice I give to our drivers since I started mentoring in 2003. I always remind them:

Drive it like you stole it! We'll put it back together for the next match.

This year our base driver took me up on it coming off the ramp so fast the bot was parrallel to the ground a few times. That'll teach me. (Smacks self in forehead) Luckily we built a sturdy bot to handle it, when we modified the drivetrain slightly after Winter Warzone when I saw what we would go through.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

(from some adult at each competition)

"RAMMING IN AUTONOMUS MODE?!?!?!!? thats not even a rule is it!"

yeah, our robot was so fast it could scream across the field in 2 seconds, fly up the ramp, and hit the other alliance's wall so hard that their controllers are knocked off the shelf, and hit the other driver's knees...

oh, and then theres the
can you tone the robot's speed down a bit? i can't handle driving with it
the programmers got a good kick out of that one

That's what happened to us in our last match in Atlanta; the cable is now taped in to prevent that ever happening again. It's the worst feeling in the world.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Mr. Cokeley: Remember, we're meeting this Saturday, 10-4. And that means 10 AM to 4 PM, not 3:50. (Saturday meetings usually lasted until about 8 or 9ish, really, though)

(A student actually showed up at 3:50 once, thinking that was what he meant )

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Conversation between mentors:

Mentor1: What's he doing here so early? (referring to my brother)
Mentor2: He's programming the robot.
Mentor1: Then why's she here? (quietly, pointing at me)
Mentor2: Oh, her? (louder, so I can hear) She's just a pain in the butt!

Mind you, the reason I learned so much was from following Mentor2 around all the time, learning how the machines worked. So yes, I was.

President: (Joking, I hope )You're a just a Freshman!
Me:I'm a person.

...And my name is Anakin. No, wait a minute!
