And the picture…

As always, the theoretical deadline is Saturday at midnight Eastern


Wow, that incredible shrinking machine the students invented really DOES work! Hmmm… what student can I shrink next? :yikes:

Mentor: OK, guys, here’s the robot.
Student: Is it programmed?
Mentor: Uh…yes.
Student: Let’s see automode…dangit, Mars Rock! Driver control…Hey, we can’t control it! E-stop, quick!..Noooooo!
Mentor: Uh-oh…
Mentor’s wife: Hey, honey, have you seen our child?
Mentor: …
Student: Um–does that look like him? points to kid on field

You know, that bar looks a lot like the top of my crib. It’s easier to pull myself up if I wet my fingers like this. Maybe before each match, someone should go out and lick the robot’s grabber.

<npoe> How about a 4-years-later update? What’s the kid look like now? Just about ready for JFLL? </npoe>

<not part of entry>It’s been awile</not part of entry>

Here is one of the original testers of the FIRST Baby Robotics League (FBRL).
Despite the FBRL’s good intentions, the whole idea was scrapped when various items in the KOP were discovered to contain critical levels of lead, which lead to recalls of the entire KOP.
Although the FBRL no longer exists, you can rest assured that the FTC and FRC KOPs will never agian contain items made in China.

You’ve just got to have respect for that ‘father/daughter Baker bonding at FIRST events’ tradition. Way cool.

What’s this? I thought we were getting a cat in this year’s KOP! Anybody have a pair of xxxxxxxs safety glasses?

Mr. Baker: “And I shall call him Mini-Me.”

FRC teams shouldn’t lower their age requirements
and accept these 2, just because their twins


oops, wrong thread :smiley:

Honey… I think our little Bobcat needs to go to the pits for a filter change! :eek:

Here we see the GDC revealing the newest game piece. FIRST is now incorporating child development lessons into its challenges. Points are scored each time the baby giggles and penalties are incurred for crying. Bonus points for changing a diaper in autonomous.

…and you thought we recruited new members? We just clone them. Bwah waah waaaah…

[NPOE]Wow, a two-fer, in adjacent weeks no less…[/NPOE]

<not an entry> oh geez, that sounds like a horrible fate for the baby xD

here we see the literal brain child who designed the winning robot in 2007.

“‘Train a child in the way it should go, and when it is older, it will not depart.’ Yup, we’re just getting this little guy started early…”

Dang, team giveaways at these regionals get weirder every year. What the heck am I supposed to do with this thing? Hmmm, maybe it would make a good pincushion for all my team buttons…

Hey Honey! Look at what I just pulled out of the shipping crate!!! Can I keep 'er Huh? HUH? Can I! Can I! Pleeeeeeeze!

PJ,“Seriously, Head Referee, Natalie is the new driver, I’m just here to hold her up so she can reach the controls.”

“Those Non-Functional Decorations just keep getting cuter and cuter.”
