There is nothing that compares to the smell of burning flesh, especially when it is your own.

Re: Things you only do ONCE!

Forget to secure your battery. throttle forward full speed.

Follow a security personnel with your robot.

Wrestle robot because you let one of your inexperienced drive team members take the wheel during a public outreach event.

Scare a baby with your robot...personally my fault.

Cut the x-shaped extruded aluminum thin on a table saw....would have hurt when it came flying out.

Place robot under any kind of pipe.

Allow students to acquire air compressor and pvc tubing...so many air powered marshmellows....

Forget your flag at school.

Scout for the entire length of competition weekend without sleep.

Drink coffee or energy drinks, except gatorade during all nighters.

Mount the cRio upside down....badly.

Re: Things you only do ONCE!

At championships in 2012, hold the joystick forward while pounding on the glass because your robot is unresponsive. (Robot shoots forward across field and jams itself into opposing alliance bridge ). It was, however, the fastest our robot ever went.

Re: Things you only do ONCE!

Bash my head on the truss at mid-field. At least I hope it's only once. Ouch!
