Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

EOB: "Why does the fischer always catch fire before we pop the breaker?"

Another mechanical mentor contemplating why we always burn up the Fischers but never seem to pop the circuit breaker like we would expect.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

1: "How much does the battery weigh?"
2: "About 12 pounds."
1: "So each volt weighs one pound?"
2: "Yes. Yes it does."

couple minutes later....

1: "So what about 9-volt batteries? They don't weigh 9 pounds!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Said by our teacher during the design phase -
'well, that would work if we had a mongo but we only have a mongette.'

----
--a little history - in the advanced tech/robotics classes he teaches, there is usually a challenge that has to do with an old bowling ball that is called Mongo (yes, Blazing Saddles).
This quote had nothing to do with the bowling ball but the idea translated.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

I know its not from this season but I would have to say or teams all time greatest quote came from our 2004 build season.

we were descussing diamond plateing and one of or seniors said
"hey daimond plateing is made from crushing peanut butter and diamonds using extreme pressure."
it was great timing considering it was like 12am the day before ship and we still had alot of work to do. it got us pumped for another hour of work. we still talk about it today.

Said earlier in the season by one of our mentors describing a computer simulation of our gripper:

"It works pretty well...Until you turn gravity on."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Kid: "You think these ball bearings will get rid of a lot of the friction?"

Me: "Yeah.. those igus bearings were never meant for as much weight as we had on them."

Kid: "Ready for me to take the support off the elevator?"

Me: "Yeah... it wont go anywhere..."

Robot: (which had suddenly found a calling to become a guillotine ) SLAM!!! BANG!!! CRASH!!!!

Kid: "Yep... i think we got rid of a lot of friction."

Me: (looking like i've seen a ghost) yeah... yep... never seen a faster going-down elevator in my life.

Stay safe everybody.... watch out for homicidal robots!!!!!
