Due to my rather hectic schedule of late, the deadline remains (in theory) at Friday at midnight EDT.
In a nefarious plot to make their event number one in the off-season, a rogue crew from Battlecry attempts to make off with the IRI field carpet during a cleverly-timed blackout. They were thwarted by Andy Baker, who singlehandly jump-started the generator by sheer force of mind control. This photo was taken just as the lights were warming up.
as can be clearly seen -
the rugged IRI volunteers go to great lengths to prepare for the upcoming fun and competition.
Wishing to once and for all demonstrate his superior gastrointestinal fortitude to the world, Dave Lavery ships in the world’s largest cannoli for his 2007 IRI eating contest against Amanda Morrison.
In a related story, Indianapolis engineers recently completed their temporary modifications to Lawrence North’s brand-new Olympic sized swimming pool. It is said the reflection of the chrome-plated flush lever can be seen from outer space.
Volunteer 1: On the count of three, we drop then roll it out.
Volunteer 2: But we just did it up, why do it again.
Volunteer 1: Because we left my car keys in there
Andy Bake, not satisfied with an ordinary pea shooter, developed this mega shooter. I one breath he succcessfully launched a 16 pound bowling ball out the Purdue Armory doors. Three cars were destroyed and five people had to be taken to the hospital, for hearing loss, resulting from the sonic boom.
This time we’re gonna have a water game! NO MATTER WHAT!
I just sat back and watched as they did the work, then I took the credit.
Indiana robotics disciples during construction of Beatty Shrine. Completion is scheduled to coincide with his next championship victory…
See shrine model here…
…a rare view of a large Indiana Segmented worm. Living relics from the Cambrian explosion, these worms are fileted, dried, and then unrolled into large pieces of industrial carpet. Indiana Worm wrestling has a small but vibrant cult following. This picture was, most likely, taken at such an event.
There are two things that you can always count on FIRST kids to do.
- Listen to directions when his/her bottle of Mountain Dew is on the line.
- Dance to Cotton Eyed Joe.
No one knew what to do when the DJ started testing his sound equipment.
“Ok guys, everybody go to the left”
“Whose left, my left?”
“No, my left, your right”
“If I’m right, then it’s my left?”
“Wrong, it’s your right”
“So it’s my left?”
“Forget this, I’m leaving…”
“Where’d he go?”

Andy: Guys, we have a really small task for you!
Andy: We ONLY have to move a carpet inside, and dinner’s on me.
Volunteers: Thats easy…
Andy: If you follow me, I’ll show you the carpet.
volunteers march to see the carpet
Andy runs to his car
Andy: I’ll be back in a bit with the food! Enjoy!
Random Volunteer: Now I know why Andy’s bringing the food.
As they prepared to utilize the world’s longest battering ram, the guy in the middle noticed that the door was already open…
I thought this rug was supposed to be 30 x 60, not 15 x 120…
“Are you sure your prototype doesn’t break the 72 by 72 box?”
Beatty is caught on tape as they try to transport their hidden “celing hanger” attatchment used to lift 3 robots into the pits before anyone gets the same idea.
Student #1: Don’t you just love it when they assign these jobs to the rookie students? He he he
Student #2: Yeah, when I heard them explaining that we had to “roll out the red carpet” at IRI, I knew what was coming!
The struggling 4th-year team has stumbled upon a way to win the IRI, now if only they can find a tall bridge over a river…
