Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"tiny shminy" we use this all the time.

Can you pass me a tiny shminy drill bit...

Can you pass me the tiny shminy screw driver...


Another one Is "city worker", we use this when ever we create something thats not pretty.

I've been called a "city worker" many times because sometimes I make things that are functional but not pleasing to the eye.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Programming or Wiring Representative: "How much longer till we get the robot?"
Me: "20 minutes"


---------3 hours later-------

Programming guy: " So when will it be done"
Me: "Shouldn't take more than 20 more minutes"


This was all too common as we hit problems this season.

Some others were:

Programming Mentor: "Our robot won't be able to do anything if you hardware guys don't give us the robot now!"

Me: "You can't seriously expect the robot two weeks into the build season!"

And yet he was serious...

Same Programming mentor: "If we don't have the larger wheels by tomorrow, we won't be able to program it to drive."

Under my breath: "Even if you had the wheels today you couldn't program it to turn on..."

If you can't tell, there is much tension between "Us hardware guys" and "Those weird software guys"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I'm on two-mile an hour mode today. . ."
said by me when my brain isn't functioning quite right.

A conversation between the other person who really wants to drive and my brother.
"So, how much would it take to have you poison her?"
"Oh, say a mere $15,000."
"Hey Tony, can I borrow some money?"

Andy, it's good that you are ok, now that you are back from the hospital. We are glad that it happened to you, and not a student, though.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

My friend Jamie--
"Sorry, I only recognize people in here with safety glasses on."

Me ( while mentally testing some code that I wrote )--
So...forward...SLAM! Oh, drat, that's a wall.

Me ( this time holding up a pair of wire cutters/crimpers) --
"Why is this in the refrigerator?"

Our captains --
CJ ( programming/electrical ) -- "This looks like a bolt."
Frederick ( Mechanical ) -- "That's because it is a bolt."

Me ( yet again, this time talking to CJ about PID stuff ) --
"Maybe in the off-season ;-)"
