Welllllll that is not always true. The batteries have different weights. We always weigh the batteries and weigh in with the lightest one.

I was told as a joke one time that it was because of Mr. Electron being tired :slight_smile: as if being tired was the real reason.

could you just send it to us instead, among other things, our robot is going to have a Weber on it, so regardless of if we win or not, we will have food after the comptition. we may even share it with you if you give us your coal.

Okay, but if you’re one of the top seeded teams at Nationals you have to pick us to be on your alliance!

Does this also rule out the small nuclear engine we designed? And what are we going to do with the uranium?

I guess we could send it to New Jersey, they’ll take anything…
