Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"This piece still isn't flush.... Encouragement!" - a mentor, reaching for a hammer

Student: "This guy was singing 'Footloose' all last Saturday. Not the song, just the words 'Footloose'."
Mentor in question: "♫Footloose!♫"

Student: "If you can't build a robot, give up on your hopes and dreams."

Teacher: "Look what you've done! Now we have to force poor [Student] to organize everything again!"

Student: "If it ain't broke, break it, and then fix it."

Student: "If it ain't broke, don't complain."

Student A: "I'm a pathological liar."
Student B: "No you're not."
Student A: "That's true.

Student: "Have you heard about quantum mechanics?" (Proceeds to explain quantum mechanics to entire team for no reason)

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Two team members were arguing today while working on the robot.
Student 1: "So you're comparing apples to oranges. It doesn't hold up."
Student 2: "Exactly. To an orange, an apple is a strange and scary creature."

Not sure what you guys are using, but it can happen. One of the two that we use came out of alignment after so many years and it now doesn't drill straight. Our mentors thought we were crazy until they saw it happen haha.
