Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Veteran Member - "Someone get me some strippers."
Freshmen - "This is the coolest place ever, we have strippers, we grind, and we tap!!!"

I'm responsable for this one, as is the case with most of my team members, and probably yours too...

Me-"What time is it?"
Student-"It's 8:45, clean up."
Me-"It's 8:45?!?! When did that happen????"

Our mentor likes to lighten the tension of build season by joking about the current challenge at hand...

We've had "don't smoke the pot" written somewhere on our robot (generally near a potentiometer) each year for the last several years.

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.
