And the picture:

As always, the deadline is theoretically kinda possibly Saturday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Did you ever play “Reach out and touch someone” with a Van de Graaff generator and a few chairs? This is the same game with a new twist. Yep, winters in Michigan can get pretty brutal. C’mere little boy!

Left alone to guard the new robot, this unfortunate freshman was never seen again.

<not an entry>

Billfred, I believe that you forgot to give Taylor his 3 points for last week’s burn award.

(Even though it’ll put me a bit further back in 2nd place, I figured that this should be fixed :smiley: )

</not an entry>

A robot is worth 30 points elevated above 12". But the programmer who puts code onto the base robot is worth -30 points per bruise inflicted by robots attempting to get that 30-point bonus, which explains why no robots have even attempted the bonus in the last couple of years.

Yes, newbies, there really was a time when robots were allowed to expand beyond their frame perimeters.

Darn robot, I may be short, but you still can’t beat me at keep away.

Ref: “I’m sorry, but Mountain Dew is not an acceptable power source. Unfortunately, you elevated programmer will not score points.”

Before there were high 5’s there were high zeroes. >>swaaaack<<

“No seriously! The robot said that if I sat on its lap it would tell me a story!”

Student: “Be very, very quiet. I’m hunting mentors with my ACME ring-capture robot model #33.”

It took 3 days to scrape what was left of this kid off the wall after the Robonauts of Hazzard saw those ramps.

[npoe]Billfred, you should give Ryan Simpson 5 points for just being a great guy. [/npoe]
Pictured: a regulation FRC robot, powered by standard 12v battery.
Also shown: a regulation FRC student, powered by standard Mountain Dew.

Al’s misguided attempt to “make the robot street-legal”.

Ramping up the chick magnet effect - like bees to honey.

Robot: My batteries are running low… can I have some Mountain Dew?

Buy Team 33’s 2007 robot, the product that can do 1,000,000 different things! It’s perfect for your (really) late holiday shopping needs!

-Run it in a parade
-Use it as an Aim High goal
-Need a coaster? It can do that too
-Convert it into an inner tube shrine
-Move the arm down a bit, and use it as a basketball hoop
We can’t think of another 999,995 functions, but we’re sure that you can!

But wait, there’s more!

If you call now, you will receive not one, but TWO inner tubes! That’s two inner tubes for the price of one!
(All inner tubes will have no more that 2 holes)

Nowhere else will you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like this!
This KILLER machine will BEE worth your money!
So call 1-800-KILLER-B to buy the robot that’s been generating all the latest BUZZ.

*Warning: Team 33, it’s sponsors, and FIRST® Robotics are not liable for any damage this robot may cause to your household furniture or any body parts that are cut off during the operation of this machine.
