Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

This actually happened awhile earlier while talking about something in Civil Engineering and Architecture

Mr. Schuff said, "Uh... 42"

I reply, "Hey it's the ultimate answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything!" while holding up my leather bound copy of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'

He replies, "I think we have just reached Nerdvana."

We got to the point yesterday when someone said:

Yes. At least I do. Makes me feel better knowing that other teams are as, uhh, special as mine is.



Me while talking to our lead about a part he wants that is both currently out of our budget and sold out.

Chad: I wonder how to get two of these...
me: The Easter Bunny.
Chad: I was thinking wish upon a falling star. lol

Our school blocks just about everything on the internet, so I had to take a student to my house to install updates on the classmate. On the way back...

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

A freshman talking to our lead mentor. Note that said freshman drove our robot ON our minibot pole during off-season practice.

Freshman: So why do we let everyone drive in the offseason, but only have 2 drivers in the competition season?

Mentor: (jokingly) The school pays us every fall to test the people on the robotics team as to how well they can drive, and then uses that information to decide if they can get a driver's license or not.

Freshman: ....

Did you hear about Mr. Wood's credit card? It was flagged for fraud due to too many AndyMark orders.
