Exclamation Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While making hot chocolate......
"Here pour some milk in it!"
she pours the milk.... just before he goes to drink it she decides to check the expiration date
"WAIT! don't drink that! the milk is bad!"
once she checked the expiration date she realized it expired 3 weeks ago
"sorry I tried to poision you!"
"What you tried to poision him!??!" person who walks in a minute later
"Don't worry we'll make you a new one!"


Later on......




After cleaning up from the hot chocolate and putting the milk away...
Student 1: "Hey guys, the milk is leaking!"
I go in the back room to see and it's all over the floor. a few of us went to get paper towels and start to clean it up.
Student 1: "I think it just wanted to see ____"(person in back room, also same person who was almost "poisioned" by the other expired milk)
Student 2: "____ Are you having an affair with the milk?"
hahahahahah o the joys of build season!

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

(all of the quotes found below occurred over the span of two days in the shop)

Student *shoves teammate into the design room*: "Let's stick you in there with the design geeks!"
Student being shoved *retaliation*: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THEY SPEAK ITALIAN AND RUN LONG DISTANCES!"

Student (discussing what TNT is made of): "Tiny Nitrogenous Turtles!"

Student: "It's a piece of junk"
Other Student: "Until further notice"

Mentor: "She's going over there to take it off"

Student: "...the safety pin..."
Mentor: "Safety pins - perfect for holding up your dirty diapers!"
Student: "I wouldn't use a 1/4 inch safety pin to hold up your dirty diapers..."
Mentor: "Kara's writing, I'd stop talking"
Mark: "At least she grants us some form of anonymity online"

Student: "AGH, something that starts with F!!!!"
Other student: "Firetruck"

Mark: "You know, that should go on CD - Oh wait, it already is"
Me: "STALKER!!!"

Me: "No, nevermind, you can go now"
Mentor: "No, I'm just going to talk in your ear to irritate you"

Me: "EVERYTHING that I write down goes on CD"
Mark: "Oh crap"

Student: "I feel like muttering...and sexual..."
Mentor: "We don't need to know where you're going with this"

Mentor: "He's been dead for three years"
Student who has been "dead for three years": yeah...
Mentor: "But he's been stupid for longer"
Fortunately, I was the only one who heard that last comment.

MORE TO COME

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Ok, the practice chassis needs 60 extra pounds to simulate having more than just a frame and wheels. What can we use?"
5 minutes later a iMac is zip tied to the chassis.

"A:What...? I cut this sheet metal and it got longer by 1/8in...
B: Well, cut it again."

"Gojo cleans your hands by taking the top layer of skin and ripping it off."

"Me: Asa, why are you taking apart the drive train again?
Asa: becuase I broke it last time I took it apart"
(he took it apart 12 more times)

"You guys gotta see this, this is awesome. It will blow your minds, it is that cool. OH GOD NO! IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THAT! AHHH!!! MAKE IT STOP!... uh... I'll buy you some new pants, ok dude."

"Tap that (followed by snickering)"

"OMG, robotics it driving me bolts.... ...er, nuts... I need to sleep."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Tried to post these earlier but kept getting an error so sorry if this is a double (or triple) post:

"Things will go wrong" "That should be our team motto..."

[I walked into a room carrying our team laptop, and knew that someone was going to ask this question]:
Teacher: Is that the laptop?
Me: No, this is the bomb.

"To-do list: program something." (This was on our whiteboard for about 3 meetings, each time getting underlined one more time)

"So why can't you touch both ends of the battery?" "Because if you do, your arms complete the circuit, and it goes through your heart and you die." "oh."



Can't think of too many right now... but I will later

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Mentor (to student): "I need you to kick Ian's ***" *Ian runs. Student picks up chair and runs after him*

Student: "So, what would you like me to do?"
Mentor: "Well, first, I would have liked you to not have done that so quickly"

Student: "You know you're addicted to robotics when--"
Other student *playing pinball on the computer*: "YES! HIGH SCORE!"

Student: "It's saying 'Screw you Kara, don't constrain me!'"

Student: "WHEEEEEEE, that was easy!"

Student *oooo-ing and ahhh-ing at a pair of shiny, expensive calipers, after yelling at me for calling them sexy*: "I hate to say this, but DANG, these are hot!"

Mentor: "We do trannies"

Mark: "For shiggles!"

Mentor (watching one student hit another with a piece of something): "So now, the question is, who's hitting on who?"
Me: "In what sense?"
Mentor: "Hmm...good question"

Student: "ZIPTIESSSSSSS!"

Student (to others): "Let's do a conga line to the other room!"
And then they actually did it.

Student: "Huzzah for acceleromet--oh crap, it broke."


...
I need to stop writing down quotes...no, maybe not...maybe I should just keep quoting Mark to annoy him xD (KIDS: Mentors should not be annoyed unless it is for a very very very very very very VERY good reason, few of which exist.)

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

My favorite thing so far this season is we have a table that one of the teachers at our school doesn't like us putting things on. He decided to write a sign saying "DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON THIS TABLE". It's in a convenient spot next to our hand mill/lathe. I now have four pictures of just random things on the table people put there just instinctively and he just put the sign up last week. I'm looking forward to showing him all the pictures at the end of the season
