As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Off-camera: “Enabling automode!”

Resulting scene too graphic to show or describe. Remember, kids, always wear your forehead protectors!

Pepperidge Farm Remembers…

Wow, bumper numbers even before there were bumpers. So this is where it started.

…and in there, protected by all the other mechanisms, we store the spare smoke.

Student: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…
Mentor: Oh, I see. And most robots go up to ten?
Student: Exactly.
Mentor: Does that mean it’s better? Is it any better?
Student: Well, it’s one better, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most teams, you know, will be competing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your robot. Where can you go from there? Where?
Mentor: I don’t know.
Student: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Mentor: Put it up to eleven.
Student: Eleven. Exactly. One better.
Mentor: Why don’t you just make ten better and make ten be the top number and make that a little better?
Student: [pause] These go to eleven.

See, right here, where my hand is, is the super duper strong chopper mechanism that you should never stick your hand in.

It’s the newspaper! Quick! Make it look like we’re doing something important!

The paper left right before they did their test involving dropping the robot off of the roof to check structural integrity. The only issue after was damage to the head mentor’s car from a 150 lb robot falling on the roof. The robot was completely fine.

When I said, “Let’s build the robot RIGHT!” this is not what I meant.

Fredi: “Don’t make a big deal of it with the media here, but my hand is stuck.”

Black shirt: Dude, I’m tryna wire the robot, get your hand out of the way.
White shirt: Get your way out of my hand…
Black shirt: … what?
White shirt: I mean, ‘help, I’m stuck.’

…and that little glass jar? That’s where we keep the secret sauce.

When robot misbehaves, Fredi punches robot. Fredi is, Chuck Norris.

Comment on article on newspaper’s website: “A machine that throws undersized water bottles? What a great idea!”

I think all that most high schools nerds here want is for someone to look at them like these two are looking at this robot.

It’s still Monday!
