Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Some classics:
"Remember, Planning is important, plans are not!"

After searching for a part fruitlessly for an hour
"So where is it?"
"Where I left it! No really thats where it has to be!"

"Belt came off... Leo's fault"
-Leo graduate 2 years, nothing was ever his fault, but he got blamed for everything.

"JOE, BEAST IT"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"What do you mean the dongle fell out?" -- As the robot careens unstoppably towards our test ramp, it ripped the tether out and died, phew!

"Of course it'll work, I wrote it" -- Before hours of debugging certain pieces of code

"I'm just tuning the PID loop what could-- OH $@#$@#$@#$@#! OWW!" -- Robot shot straight backwards and knocked me over, ended up pinning me down with a wheel gnawing on my leg, out of reach of the dongle, which wouldn't have helped as it was a few inches from the OI, it fell out again.

"What do you mean backup battery?" -- As the radio kept cutting out during testing.

"There's a right way to do this, a wrong way to do this, the fast way to do this, and the way I'm doing this, which is a blend of the three others, now can you get me a bandaid?" -- Scraped up my arm trying to change a fuse in our green light...on the goal...on a rickety ladder, not my idea of fun.

"The code is doing exactly what we told it do, now to trick it in to doing what we need it to do." -- It was doing exactly what we told it to do...

"Mr. Schuler Watch this!..Aww..CRAP!!" -- As my tracking code has a horrendous failure in front of the man who never thought I'd make it work. Go figure.

This has been a fun season.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"People do stupid things." followed by whistling the song the the Vonage commercials.

P: M walk away for a minute.

M: Why?

P: Because I don't want you to seeing what I'm about to do to this part.

A personal favorite: "The holes in the wrong place time to get the liquid metal."

"Don't worry A. can weld it." - Usually true but I can see him cringe sometimes when we say it.

"Assume the position" - this is said every time some reaches into the robot during driver practice (although we didn't use it much...)

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

We had quite a few, but the best was probably one of our mentors saying,
"Give me that tightener over there" in regards to the wrench. He got a pair of vicegrips instead. That happened a lot in the last days in the wee hours of the night/morning.

The other one was the constant

Was that how it was supposed to end up?
-Of course, we planned it that way.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

A couple more:

J: I love it when a plan comes together!
P: Sure thing Hannibal. I know you planned it that way.

Hey can some one get me a metric adjustable.

A: Has anyone seen the power shear?
P: It's in the cabinet where it goes.
A: Why would it be where it goes in the middle of build season? Who actually puts stuff where it goes.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"It's okay - We are fully adjustable!"

Said far too often anytime something needed changing or moving - due to the fact that our robot frame is constructed of 80/20. It's not as funny anymore now that I've had a chance to sleep a little, but for some reason it sure seemed funny at the time.

"theres the tool for the job, then theres the tool we will use" the entire team when using the omnipotent socket wrench and adjustable wrench

"this will work... oh $#@%$#" after the robot runs into the computer table with autonomous

" aaaaahhhhh!!!! @#$%" after i got run over by the robot when we forgot to calibrate joysticks. i ended up with a shredded shirt
