Me: "I threaded my finger ! Wow, that looks like it is going to hurt very soon." (This was after getting my finger jammed in a hole with a large tap bit. I literally "tapped" my finger ).
----------------------------
Me: we need a way to gauge how high the ball is going.
Mentor: wait, how tall is Quinton?
Quinton: 6' 5".
Mentor: Perfect, stand in front of the robot while we shoot the ball.
Me: 3..2...1.. fire.....ah, it hit him in the face. Lets just call that 5 1/2 feet.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Guy, marveling at our new mill cabinet: Can we ship our robot in this? Then we'd have all the endmills we need at competition.
Me: And how many is that? None.
Guy: No, we'd have way more than none.
