This is a public service announcement: DO NOT use a shark mouth for an intake. While it may have touch-it-own-it properties, it’s a little dangerous around fingers and has a high probability of damaging this year’s (2007) game piece. ONLY use it only if you want to get hurt or get a red card.

R14. Physical ROBOT elements created before Kickoff are not permitted.

A:  Biologic materials (human or otherwise) may not be used on the 2019 robot nor may they be brought in as part of the Withholding Allowance.  This includes cartilage, bone and/or teeth (from formerly living things, recently deceased or part of the geologic landscape) used to interact with the carpet or gain an advantage in contact with other robots.

And you thought this job was easy…

This is not what was meant by the term “SharkBite” in the list of practice field materials.

if I lose a finger I can’t be forced to assemble transmissions
