Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Mentor 1-"why is it not working?" (referring to a tetrix motor)
Mentor 2-"Because there is a 3in shaft in there!"

Random Student (from across the shop)- "THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!!"

(when building the prototype arm, and forgetting to attach the motor)

Student- "I was born to be stupid..."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

You have sprockets in your pocket a drill in your purse and a table saw in your car I would not want to mug you

One person on our team asking another out
"Oh I have been really stressed recently do you know how I could relax?"
girl:" Well I'd say stab people but you already fence."
"I was thinking more along the lines of dinner and a movie. You obviously dont understand how a guys mind works"

Another kid making fun of it a few days later " After a long day of fighting off people with my sword I like to relax with a candle lit dinner and a movie."



Nate: "Your my worst friend!"
Bret: "That still puts me top three"
*Note this got our headmaster and dean to laugh*

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our team had a 2 bumper assemblies for this year, one for each color, but they go on in one piece. I had just finished making the first bumper assembly and, while standing inside of the bumpers(wearing them), went to a mentor to make sure it was to their liking. After she approved I looked at her and said "So these bumpers don't make me look fat, do they?"

she started laughing hard enough that she had to leave room.

It is also a frequently-ignored part of the rule book. If Pit Admin wants to not make that announcement, they can choose to say that no, I can't do that, I have to keep the microphone for official announcements.

Most Pit Admin people, however, figure that both they and the teams need something to break up the "Teams X, Y, Z, report to queuing immediately... Team A needs tool B... No running in the pits" announcements, and ignore the rule if there's open time on the mic.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

If it is all in good fun, what is the problem. It is not like a Pit admin would choose to make a joke over making a real announcement, so why not give the people working in the pits a bit of humor when they can?

I can see the fun in it, but it could get out of hand. If I got the announcer to say "703 is looking for a left handed screwdriver", would you be having fun?

What about the people that spend ten minutes trying to find an adjustable metric wrench to lend a team? Are they having fun?

What about the people in a pinch trying to get to the field in time but pause to hear an announcement?

I would go find their pit and shake their hands and have some friendly dialog. The pits can have some flared tempers and human congestion; it's good to know we're at the competition to have more fun than anyone else will that weekend.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

A couple for the Safety Inspectors...

Newbie: "Why are our shirts Blood Red?"
Older Student: "Well, they were all White at the start of the Build..."

Older Student: "We chose Blood Red shirts this year so the FIRST Safety Inspectors at events won't notice when we bleed on them in the pits while trying to fix the robot."
