Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

At a demonstration at Union Station in KC.
We are working on the robot in the pit.
A young son and his father walk by. The son says to his father
"Daddy, thats a DEAD robot"

Seconds later an uninsulated wire touches the frame and begins to smoke... REALLY bad.

Crew member yells "SMOKE"
Another says "Turn it off"
Another "Just unplug the battery"
All of us once power is cut off "DEAD robot!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

FIRST is where all the good jokes are made.
  • We got free donuts from a company. Unfortunately a mentor finished a whole box in under 5 minutes. From now one, whenever she calls ahead to tell us she is coming, we hid all the food.
  • Our safety manager isn't allowed to use the power tools, because he used a drill as a pointing device.
  • Safety FIRST, [verb] later!
  • This one isn't ours, but a safety sign said, "Caution , this sign has sharp corners!"
  • Student who didn't know anything about computers: "So if I delete all the .exe files, I'll have less space on my computer. I don't know why there are so many excel files anyway..."
  • "Why do her bumpers look so much better than mine?"
    -"It's because she's a girl!"
  • "You can't use a drill press to create a keyed shaft!"
    -"I reject your reality and substitute my own"
  • You know, there's such a thing as too much spirit...
  • We met a rookie team once... unfortunately they thought the robot was to be built during competition!
  • Driver: "The robot doesn't work"
    Programmer: "But it worked less than 20 seconds ago!"
    Driver: "Look (flexes controls through all positions)"
    Suddenly, the robot (which was lagging), flies off the bridge!
    Programmer: "I call lag..."
  • At our team banquet after the competition:
    Mentor: "Why weren't you there for the awards ceremony"
    Student: "Well, we decided that we couldn't have our dinner and have HALO party, so something had to go"
    In reality, our coach who drove the bus had to leave early.
  • Student: So we have a mill, but no cutters, and a lathe, but no parting tool. It's there for looks right?
  • Student: So we're building a minibot deployer for a minibot that doesn't exist.
  • Student 1: "Where did you put the 7/16 wrench?"
    Student 2: "I left it inside the robot"
    Student 1: "During a match!!!"
  • Student 1: Look at these chopsticks I made using the sander and jigsaw! Now I can eat.
    Take out is popular here.
  • Student 1: "You know, the robot looks sort of like a Dalek"
    (a few minutes later) "wait, what do you mean you don't watch Dr Who!"
  • Is this an original problem, surely it's been solved on Chief Delphi!
  • Student 1: "You're late, the pizza is cold."
    Student 2: "No problem, I'll just use the shrink ray (heat gun)"
  • To spirit person: "Why are our shirts black this year? When they were yellow, you couldn't see the grease stains!"
  • To programmer: Dividing by 0 will not make your robot self-aware, but it will make you feel stupid.

I could go on for a forever, but there's this thing called time that keeps interfering. It's more obvious during build season.

Talking to a FTC freshman:

What a mentor said to me after taking apart the drive train gearboxes about 10 times for adjustments:

"He is geary and small,
and doesn't work well at all.
He is your best Friend."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Less of a quote than a story, and it happened at Champs this year, but it still fits the spirit of the thread.


This year at St Louis, the girls of the High Tekerz all wore matching purple tutus to Roboprom. The next morning, one of the guys decided that he wanted to wear one of the tutus as a spirit thing. (This is not odd behavior from him.) So I loaned him mine. Then, he decided he'd let us do his hair. We gave him a hair bow, and then, as we were waiting for the elevator, I decided I'd braid his hair.

So, to paint the picture for you (and this is important to the story), he was kneeling in front of me so that I could braid (sadly, his hair was just barely too short for normal braids, and I can't French braid), and we had our backs to the hallway.

Suddenly, an FLL mom walked up. She probably noticed the tutu and not much else, because she said, in an "isn't that darling" voice, "Oh, she looks so... Oh." The second "Oh" was in a rather different tone of voice, because we turned around, and the rest of the pieces fell into place. Cue general laughter.

She thought it was as funny as we did, and we had almost persuaded her to French braid his hair when the elevator came. To this day, we still give the guy a bad time about it. The End.
