Go to Post But if we just re-play "Triple Play" then what in the world will the Game Design Committee do with all that new-found free time? Since they wouldn't have to come up with a new game, they would have to concentrate on other things - like how to enforce the proposed "no metal on robots" rule. - dlavery [more]

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

From our safety captain:
"There's nothing more demeaning than writing up your own accident report..."

"Ok, so the number one rule for the build space is: Measure once, cut twice."

On a very LONG and seemingly unproductive Thursday at the Colorado Regional:
"So what are the programmers doing NOW??"
"They're fixing the problem, I believe."
"Oh, so they finally figured it out?"
"Yeah, they were pulling out the battery on the computer and they dropped it, so they put it back in and now everything works fine..."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

At competition this year, the robot stopped working on the field... Get it back to the pits to find, missing a sprocket, it was on there when we took the robot to the field, but not there now. There was an "um guys where's the sprocket" moment there.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

My favorite from this years team annual Picnic.

Me-"Why do we have to build the grills?"
Sam-"Because we're the Robotics team"
Me-"It's 90 out, these grills are black and I'm starting to burn. I know we're robotics, isn't it more FIRST to order pizza and Mountain dew?"
Rob-"While it would be to see what the sun actually looks like. Stop whining and find out where all these extra parts belong!"

Turns out we can build a Robot in 6 weeks, but we can't follow the directions to make a grill. They held up without duct tape, it was an up from last year!

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

While cleaning up our mech lab to pass OHS standards, one of the students was in charge of putting everything onto our shelves...

Student: "Now, if we just mark every shelf "misc" it will be organised!"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

our coach was a soccer player and was trying to show off when we were cleaning up the field and just about to leave.

Mr. Hepler:"ok, i'm gonna try to slightly curve it through the tower and into the goal". He kicks the ball it flies strait up and shatters a flood light.
Me:"well i guess were not leaving just yet".

after 3 hours of talking later...

Me:"ok, well we should be going. Mr. hepler can you help me take these lights to my car?"
Mr. Hepler:"sure"...hits the door and drops yet another flood light...
Me: *sighs* ill get the broom...
