Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

After working on the transmission and chains lunch came and one of the mentors grabbed a piece of pizza without washing hands.

Student:"You got some grease on your pizza."
Mentor: "Duh. It's pizza."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

One hilarious quote from us at team 540 was, "That's so sweet! It actually works!" this was said during prototyping, and we are considering putting it on a t-shirt.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

[Mechanical] Student A, smugly: "You electrical guys are really sick... You keep shouting 'Let's get the Strippers and Dikes over here'..." ["Dikes" = Electrician's slang for "Diagonal Cutters"]

Not to be outdone, [Electrical] Student B says: "Yea, but WE think you mechanical types are even sicker... You all get excited whenever you talk about 'Trannies and Chains'..."

[Student A shuts up and goes away]

(...and I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I heard that exchange...)

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Me: "Eric, get me a hammer."
<Eric goes to get hammer, returns with a crowbar>
Eric: "I couldn't find a hammer because Ross was using three."

Oh, and the programmers have proposed we call this year's robot, "LongShot." The builders think it's a complement to their kicker, but it's actually describing the programmers' thoughts on whether we will finish by ship date.

"Dew me, Dew Me, Dew Me." ~Katherine on wanting Mtn. Dew, also takes a "Do Me"

"I think we should make the whole robot out of steel so when we drill lightening holes it actually looses weight"~Chet

"Maybe we should learn to harness the magic in magic smoke to make our robot fly. Its simple really, just have an air nibbler mounted above a Victor, and program it to turn on when you want to fly. Metal Shavings + Victor = Blue Chernobyl + Magic Smoke, then the magic will be available."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

I wasn't really there, so I don't have much... and Student #3 was gone... so this is kind of the pit & crate subteam quote...

1. Someone, usually Student #1: *screws a screw too far into the piece of wood*
Someone, usually Lead Mentor: Uhhh... you made it a little too perfect...


2. Student #2: *hears a loud noise or turns sharply to see something next to her head* Whoa, hi there...

3. Student #2: LOOK AT THIS GIANT PILE OF DUST!!!!11!!!

4. SEVERAL "that's what she said" jokes
