Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While brainstorming how to pick up a cylinder and place it on end:

'I think at all costs we should avoid building a robotic human hand.'

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Question! Was it Dean or Dave who said, while talking about the game during the kickoff broadcast, 'Now the diabolical plan here....' and then, I think, went on to talk about partnering with FLL and so on.
I am almost positive it was Dean but we must attribute CORRECTLY...hehe...


[edit] And Dave's story about the rookie team that packed their robot in FedEx boxes! Epic! Was that FRC Team 166 or 116? Demosthenes, do you know?]

It was 116, Epsilon Delta, from Herndon, VA. Dave's posted that story on here; link is http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...4&postcount=57 There's more detail in that post, including some of how they did. I think time cramped Dave's story-telling style today. He still mentors them, AFAIK.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Haha, yeah, it was 116. That would have been funny if it WAS my team though, because it's honestly something that I think a few of my teammates would do...

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

More quotes for the thread:

(while discussing the minibot)
"I wonder if we could just shoot a gun at the target, and say that the bullet is our minibot?"
"Then we would tell the inspectors 'We melted down the TETRIX pieces and cast them into a bullet'"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

these are from vex (our school has the freshies to vex before they can do FIRST robotics), so i don't know if they count, but.

"Okay guys, time for a nut check"
"Hey Fred, while you were gone the programmer named the bot after you"
"Is the magic smoke still in the bot?"
"Duck tape is like the force, it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together."
me-"what could possibly go wrong...." the bot randomly quit working right after that.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

We were doing introductions to new members. My friend said:

"Hi I'm Turd Furgusson."

Then one of the mentors said:

"I'm calling you that all season."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"We're voting now. Are you awake?"
"Get more sleep Nick."

(A team member's 8th grade sister knows the rules better than most team members) "You better join the team next year."

(Talking through AIM with a member of another team, going through what we're up to) "I just realized. You're in a regional with us. We're playing against you. But we're also playing with you, so it's all good."

"So it'd be awesome to have the driver press a button and it automatically scores. So we need a camera and light sensor"
"Did Matt tell you to say that?"
Maybe... (no I didn't. They won't believe me anyways)
