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

Go!

Whatever’s in that corner, I don’t want to see. Unless you found an [insert out of stock product here]. Then I really want to see it.

[NPOE] Guaranteed #toosoon response here…[/NPOE]

The reactions to the event being canceled due to COVID-19. The students are looking for hope in the most unlikely places; the mentor is just shell-shocked.

[NPOE #2] And you may as well just put a -infinity in for me. [/NPOE]

Their attempt to surprise their mentor with a gift was interrupted when it mysteriously drove off. Guess this is what happens when you don’t consult your mentor before designing a swerve module.

Mentor thinking; “I let my mind wander but it hasn’t come back.”
Students: "What is that? “It looks like someone’s mind has wandered off.”

In this new game show, “Stump the Mentor”, teams remove a vital component from their robot and see how long it will take for the mentor to find what is missing.

The mentor’s reaction to the news that the robot was working just in time for [Cancelled Event] was in total surprise, after which the students found a piece of paper with the words “This will be in the Unofficial Chief Delphi Caption Contest #818.”

“Why will the robot not work” heard a cross the room

Programmers continue to be huddled in the corner “working”.

mentor: I want plausible deniability for whatever they are doing.
Student: didn’t we used to have a fire extinguisher here?

If you can’t see the biohazard, you don’t need safety glasses, right? :wink: :point_right:

If I dont see the safety issue it doesn’t exist

How did I end up letting them decide whether or not to cancel the FRC season again?

[nae]Billfred, give him double triple negative infinity! [/nae]

  • How did he get all those systems into a frame perimeter of 119 millimeters?
  • Amazing! It looks the chassis was 3-D printed. By the way, what do we call it?
  • Hmm… how about Stonehenge?

Bored by a lack of events to go to, these students decided to entertain themselves by watching paint dry.

I will not touch my face. I will not touch my face. I will not touch my face. Why does my nose itch so much!

This is not safe and I don’t want to be liable, so I’m just going to turn around here like this and you guys just keep … just keep doing whatever you were doing. There. Perfect!

[NAE] @Billfred, I expect to see something like either of the following suggestions in my score line at the end of the week…

-:infinity: -:infinity: -:infinity: -:infinity: -:infinity:
-∞-∞-∞-∞-∞
[/NAE]

Three members of the FRC community react when they hear that this caption contest and the season as a whole is no longer Infinite Recharge, it’s Minus Infinity Recharge.
