Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

(Me explaining our arm to a student's sister)
"So we have an arm, and the pot on it tells how high we are..."
(People working on the robot start laughing)
"...and then we know how high we want to be..."
(They're dying from laughter)
"...and if we're not high enough we go higher."
(I have to leave the room, we're all laughing too much.)

(We're debating plugging things in that are out of reach)
"Let's move this closer"
"NO! WE CAN'T DO THAT! MOVE IT BACK!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

We just got our robot working Sunday and hadn't had time to even attempt to clean up our wires. When we went to the practice meet that day one of the mentors from a veteran team came over and had a stern talking to us about our wiring methods that lasted over 45 minutes.

Now every time we do something messy on our electronics board we say "The wire nazi is going to come for you if you don't fix that"


"Why is the floor covered in used zip ties after every meeting"

"We should have a scavenger hunt on our robot. We fill out a sheet and make people find where we used conspicuous materials like plywood, duct tape and Velcro."

"I have an awesome idea for our crate to make it stick out. We should cover it in like 10 rolls of duct tape."

"Lets name it TIMMY"

"Ugh why do we have to put a wireless router on the 12 volt converter? I mean our jury rigged stuff only has a small chance of catching on fire."

"First needs to come with a warning 'Extreme robots may cause headaches'."

So many more . . .

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Every time a member asks our mentor, George, where something is, its magically always "behind you."

When I was welding our frame together;

me: "Hey! my leg is really hot" (continues welding)
Someone grabs my leg, then I hear stomping (continues welding)
I finish welding and look down at a smoldering "fireproof blanket."

me: "Was I on fire!?"
Roberto: "Sure you were. We only let you burn for about 10 seconds."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Stupid college getting in the way of my education!" - Me every time one of my professors emails me at a meeting. Our students are quite amused.

Explanation: I feel that learning to work with people and communicate problems effectively is at least as important as the stuff I am doing in my classes.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Anyone know the actors name who does the 'I pick things up and put them down' commercial? We're going to name our robot after him."

(I was thinking Jorgen Von Crab, mixing two of my favorite annoying characters from my favorite cartoons when I was like 7)

"What's that sound?!"
"That's the sound of complacent teenagers."

Dinner tonight. Silence over the ENTIRE table at the meeting.

Talking Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

All from today:

Mentor to me: So, last night I was having nightmares that we made it to the championship again...

*While I'm controlling the robot arm with an XBOX controller*
Teammate: So how does this all work?
Me: Pretty good.
Teammate: I meant like what does each button do...
Me: LOL. To Chief Delphi!

*Me talking about a washer while trying to put it on a screw*
Me: Ugh, this washer is all bent out of shape.
Mentor: So just tell it to relax.

*Mentor explaining how to move the arm to pick up the tubes from the floor*
Mentor: Left control up..right control down. Left trigger...right trigger. No, again left contol up....... ugh, I feel like I'm captain of a ship or something.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I can't even post this to Chief Delphi!" -Me, after a mentor makes an amazing inappropriate joke

(After me and another programmer have been working on code integration for the last three days)
Mentor: "Go relax. Do anything BUT program. Play a video game. Just don't touch robot code."
(Later, we're discussing a Minecraft world seed)
Same mentor: "YOU BETTER NOT BE PROGRAMMING!"

Jag-wiring (pronounced jaguaring)

I also invented the "death stare" for the group. If someone starts to tick me off (and they know who they are) then they get the stare.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Recently on my team, one of the electical people said:
Electrical student: "I need a stripper."
Mechanical student: "You can't get those at robotics."
Electrical student: "Look, I got two! One for each hand!" (As he recieved the wire strippers)

We all cracked up about this one, including one of our mentors becoming completely red-faced.

Talking Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Okay, 'nom,' then 'un-nom.'"
--The robotic arm team, referring to the mechanical 'claw' (gripper) on the robot.

"We're going to put this on YouTube!"
--Jeff (team leader), who always jinxes demonstrations whenever he says this.

"Go get me a wire stretcher!"
"What's a wire stretcher?"

--The minibot team, playing a practical joke on newbies.

"Back then, we didn't have those fancy color light sensors, we just had black and white ones!"
--Matt (minibot team), role-playing as an old-timey folk.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our head build mentor (and head of hooliganism) giving our programmer a hard time:


Mentor: Hey Kern(programmer)!
Kern: Ya?
Mentor: How are we supposed to turn left with theses line sensors if they are "right sights"
Kern: You cant you can only go left (holding back laughter)

At this point we all just start cracking up......
