Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

In my four total regionals, here's what I've heard.
-Flux Capacitor (at every regional, I might add.)
-Team... has lost the game.
-Team... has lost their robot (it was apparently true.)
-Dehydrated water

This whole business of paging for "funny things" is generally really annoying and dumb and adds just more noise to the event.

But "George P. Burdell" - okay I'll have to give you that one

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

I'm very concerned that an announcement wasn't made that the solid form of dihydrogen monoxide was precipitating. I mean the damage caused by that alone at the Championship event was in the $10,000s.

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

My mentor found a massive cable splicer (we learned what it was afterwards) on the side of the road and brought it with us. I went around 10k Lakes asking people for a spare bit for it, which elicited some amusing reposes.

Don't know which team was giving it out, but I managed to get some headlight fluid in a tube. Did you know it glows?

Re: Funny things to ask for on the PA system

Last year (logomotion), at the houston regional, my previous team (2276) needed rubbing alcohol...

The pit admin said "team 2276 would like alcohol".

- Regolith
- A cupid shuffle
- The matrix
- A terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger will suffice)
At the Buckeye Regional '12 I heard multiple teams ask for programming help

It depends on the pressure it is stored at, if it were under 125 lbs (it would have to be or the relief valve would open) it would still be a gas unless it was REALLY cold. Besides, whether gaseous or liquid, it is still a "fluid"
