Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Why when you keep food in the microwave away from ants, you tell people.
--" Why is there tea in the microwave?! "
--" We have tea?! "
-- " Thats where it went!"
-- " ew...."

How 973 members learn why you don't wear rings and work on the lathe.
--"Have you seen Chuck's ring finger?"
-- "No.."
-- "Neither have we. "

"What would you need a two house power blender for, blending babies?"

Team 280 was burned by the judges for playing their anthem in the pit area the day I missed, apparently.
Their anthem? Aptly, "TNT!"

And I swear this is true, even though no one believes it, but this is something somebody actually announced SOMETIME during the competition...

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

me- "No one say pneumatics ever, i mean ever, again...it is now an evil word that should be banned from speech."

I became operator during the latter half of the Las Vegas regional and the Championship. For some reason or another there sprung a leak in the pneumatic system and the mechanical/drive team (drive team is part of mechanical) looked over the entire system 3-5 times and could not find a thing, reconnected every tube, checked ever plug, couldn't find a thing. And during one match someone (most likely me....) forgot to close the pressure valve fully so during that entire match i had virtually no pressure, and thus, our arm was completely useless.

Thats why we dont use pneumatics

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Here's some quotes by the mentors on our team from this season:

Innebriated Mentor Discussion at ~3:00 am January 7th, 2007:
Mentor A "So if we put up a 72 times the square root of two inch wide sheet that's 6 feet tall, and go to the opposing home zone line and drive about 6 feet back and forth in front of the operators, would they call that ungracious professionalism or the best [darn] defense ever?"
Mentor B "Maybe it's gracious if we put a BIG yellow smiley face on it, then at least they'll have to laugh the first time"
Mentor C "We'd be infamous!"
Lead: "We do NOT tell the kids about this strategy."
Me, somewhere in there, flipping through the rules: "Well as long as we don't call it a 'decoration' I think it's technically legal"

During the season:
"If it can't hold a static 200 pound me, there's NO WAY it will hold a 150 pound robot hitting it and driving up it at 10 feet per second!"

The night we got the robot back at the school and uncrated:
"Ok now we're going to let the MENTORS drive and the STUDENTS boss us around!"

"See, this is what John meant when he said it turns itself."

<After spinning the robot as fast as we could in one direction to test quality after competition season>
Lead: "Hey watch where you're spinning that thing, you almost hit something"
Me: "Oh, well it's just a locker and we could repaint it"
Lead: "No, I meant don't hurt the robot"
Me: "That's why we have bumpers" <big grin>

Me: "What genius decided to make a rocking drivetrain and then put all supports for the ramps on the outside of the outer axles?"
Lead: "Joe, Piccione, Duane, Me, and oh yea, You too."
Duane: "Darn this hindsight vision, it's so clear it's making me dizzy"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Mentor: Sleep.
Me: Wha?
...
Me (singing): I like caffeine!
Mentor: Wha?
...
Me, after accidentally swallowing aluminum dust at a saw while cutting a piece for the frame...
"Hm...needs Tabasco."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

background info: a wire on our solenoid broke, and i had to replace the whole electronic device. we never used that solenoid, until one broke and we had to. 10 minutes (or 20, i forget) before a qualifying match, after the new solenoid was wired up, we tested out robot. nothing. the solenoid lights were changing, but the pneumatic cylinder wouldn't move.

Mentor: it's not working....
Teacher: [after looking at it for a minute] ahhh....i see the problem!
Teacher: [takes the solenoid away, fixed it, comes back a few minutes later. we're all going crazy because we're going to miss our match]
Teacher: someone put 24 volt contacts. we needed 12 volt contacts
Mentor: [i forget exactly, but something along the lines of: ] what kind of person did that!
Me:[not saying anything....it was me way back during build season...]

ya.....that was kinda funny looking back at it.
