Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

This was at the Ann Arbor hands on museum last Saturday.
Chealsea: Have you hugged the robot today?
Me: No
Chealsea: (backs up the '07 bot right in front of me) Hug the robot.
Me: (hugs the robot) Have you hugged the robot?
Chealsea:...
She never did hug the '07 bot... Or not that I knew of.

Similarly, in 2007, we spent thre hours each on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday trying to figure out why our camera wasn't working. I couldn't attend the Saturday meeting, and wished the team luck getting the camera to work. The next Tuesday, I walked in:

Me: "So, did you get the camera working?"
Mentor: "Yes."
Me: "What was wrong with it?"
Mentor: "It was mounted upside down."

Yes; when the camera tried to make a slight correction to the left, it actually went right, causing a larger correction to the left, which went even farther right...yeah, that didn't work.


This year, after a match:
Me: "Any problems with the robot?"
Driver: "The drive system was acting weird."
Other Driver: "And the pivoter didn't work."

The build team went to work fixing the pivoter while I checked out the drive system programming. I couldn't help but laugh when I realized I had left the robot in tuning mode, which used the pivoter switch to change a drive system PID constant. No wonder it was acting weird; the more the second driver tried to make the pivoter turn, the worse the drive system got.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"Guys? The floor attacked someone else..." (The floor of the Robolair has a strange curse...people seem to bleed on it randomly.)

We have a certain girl on our team who is great for comic relief:
Mentor: "Don't run with sharp objects, or things with sharp objects on it."
Trish: "Oh, or scissors!"

Trish: "No, you don't eat the NON-FLAVORED chapstick!"

Trish: "So Asian's a kind of Chinese?"
(The same day, when asked what continent China was in)
"South America?"
(Much later)
"Is it Europe?"

Mentor: "I know what we can do!"
Everyone: Some sort of variation of "Oh $@#$@#$@#$@#."

Mentor: "No female daughter of mine is going to Lowell!"
Mentor's daughter: "What about a male daughter?"

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

For a while we had a whiteboard sitting on a shelf that read "Days since last accident: cos(pi/2)+1". One of our adults continually asked "What if it's not an accident? Mabye they want to be hurt."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Out coach had given our School Newspaper an interview and they just slaughtered everything he said. They pulled this epic FAIL out of a hat:

"YOU RIP WHAT YOU PUT ANYWHERE!"

Completely out of the blue. We read the article, but didn't notice it at first due to it being the very last sentence. Eventually someone read the whole thing diligently, and brought it to our attention. We had a good laugh afterward, and still occasionally use it as a pun...

Our school has done the same thing, although not nearly as horribly. Their mistakes were limited to the grade of one of our students, the days we meet, and they implied that the Vex competition was called Overdrive.

There are a couple of pictures in our yearbook this year of members that graduated last year.
