On 1523 ours is safe she just forgets to wear closed toed shoes, bring hair ties, and she sometimes doesn't pay attention when walking into a room. Sadly she isn't the most unsafe person on the team............ that belongs to a mentor

All of us once power is cut off "DEAD robot!"
So, you met Damian.

I think the one I heard most on our team is "If it fits, it ships"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Our team captain and oldest, "wisest" member: "Lithium grease doesnt taste that bad, especially since my tongue is now numb."

"Who's idea was it to take a week off from robotics?"
"well, that looks nothing like the cad i just did.."
"thats what she said"
*Playing DeadMou5 and other dubstep while working* Head mentor "Can we turn this stuff off? its proven it will make us lose. Lets listen to AC/DC instead. Yeah thats a good idea"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

A collective quote from several of my veteran team members:

Build season is like a child:
You wait expectantly for it for 9 months.
You're super excited when it finally comes.
You have a few, but can't really answer which one is your favorite.
You pour lots of time and money into it.
It's a lot of work and very tiring.
At some point, you become really mad at it and frustrated, wondering "what was I thinking"
Then when it's gone, you miss it and wish it would come back.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Person 1: If it fits it ships.
Person 2: For a low flat rate.

This applies to EVERY situation you can think of.

Example 1: We were attaching a manipulator to the back of our OCCRA robot.
Example 2: Making a battery box
Example 3: deciding on the amount of pizza to buy

That would be a resounding "no".

My computer: ........... *backspace* *backspace* *backspace*
Me: Hey! We finally got a connection to the router!
Me: Nope, just lost connection again.
Me: *goes to look at router, sees mentor plugging and unplugging power repeatedly*
Me: WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?
Mentor: Oh, sorry, I thought that would make the robot boot up faster.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While a couple of senior members and I were working on the mill, our semi-affiliated FTC team was also working in the shop. We overhear this from a rather eccentric programmer type, directed to their mentor:

"Mr. Shannon, the wheels are round!"

After laughing our heads off, we began to wonder how that could possibly be a concern worth expressing.

How about the "you know your addicted to first when..."

You had a dream you saw what the 2013 game was when no one else has (:

"The robot bit me!"
-said while bleeding after shin scraped against side panel of our t-shirt cannon bot.

"We need red and blue nail polish... to mark the bags of encoders"
-Mentor after long day of switching out 250's that were mistakenly mounted instead of 360's.

"Karl stuck the multimeter in the wall, and it's smoking."
