Go to Post I think we need to take away your hammer privileges. Katy Michelle Celio
Go to Post we were sick and tired of compromises: "speed or torque", "traction or maneuverability", etc.; bump that, we want it all. all we had to compromise was simplicity. RogerR Billfred

Go to Post kids under stress + poor eating habits + even worse food+ walking around a cold ice rink all day + contact with 100s of kids from all over the world = robo flu. Maybe the virus going around is the real "FIRST fever" Wayne C. Bharat Nain

Go to Post If you are playing foozball and your ball bounces back out of the goal, do you expect the table's manufacturer to fix it? No - you groan and keep playing! Nothing's different here. Like Dave said, it's part of the challenge of playing the game. petek Billfred
Go to Post Side effect include: Hearing loss, splinters, blisters, extreme sprit, uncontrollable urges to scream "GO MOE", and bright green fashion sense The Lucas Jessica Boucher
Go to Post So perhaps those that are so eager to complain might realize that if they spent a little less time complaining and a little more time analyzing the problem and developing solutions, then they might have a little less to complain about. dlavery RogerR
Go to Post you can't eat a poof ball. its filled with magic smoke. it'd kill you quicker than a robot rampaging in autonomous mode, when you have the green light strapped to your face. efoote868 coastertux
Go to Post Football has been a school institution for over 100 years--we can't expect FIRST to show the same potential in a 10th of that. Petey Billfred

Go to Post Inside Dave's Head (which is a place I'd like to go someday, but I'm not entirely sure what I'd find)... Ian Curtis Billfred

Go to Post Life is unfair. Learn to deal with it or be unhappy. Joe Johnson StephLee
Go to Post OUR CNC machine is named Joe, and he has this week of school off. He eats candy instead of electricity. Not so accurate or repeatable, but very easy to re-program. Not2B Joe J.

Go to Post hmmm... big open space between arena and pits... thousands of poof balls...thousands of high school kids hopped up on sugar and robotics.... sounds a little dangerous. Courtneyb1023 Billfred
Go to Post Don't you know anything about programming? It's a black box; you don't need to know how it works. Chriszuma Billfred
Go to Post oooh tight leather bumpers...sexy! Nuttyman54 Michelle Celio
Go to Post Yes, I think we can all agree that bad people suck. Joe Johnson Tristan Lall
Go to Post Since our team is in possession of the school, we have no restrictions on how late we can be there. So our teams are often practicing into the wee hours of the morning. Also, the school board uses "the breeze" for storage of high jump mats, so it's a great place to nap. :) Karthik Ian Curtis
Go to Post I give props to your programmers and programming mentors. Sgraff_SRHS06 Kristian Calhoun
Go to Post Inspectors are your friends and are there to make sure you are safe and legal to compete. Al Skierkiewicz Andy Baker
Go to Post your bot brings all the boys to the yard. looneylin Andy Baker
Go to Post No offense, but telling the Killer Bees they should do something is like telling Micheal Jordan how to dunk a basketball (or Lebron James for you young'ens who don't know who Michael Jordan is)... Don Wright Eric Yahrmatter

Go to Post These are the moments you will bring with you the rest of your life, enjoy them! KathieK Jon K.
Go to Post Now, our team did meet, but there wasn't much inspiring going on. Unless you call pegging me with more darn poof balls exciting. Paul Copioli Billfred

Go to Post You can make unfounded guesses, but chances are you'll come off looking like a moron. Let's try and avoid that. Karthik RogerR

Go to Post Just because a robot looks good and just because it is very well made does not mean that students were not involved in creating it. Ryan Dognaux Karthik
