The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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

Go!

Preparing a budget Cone of Silence.

NPOE

Let’s see how many people get the reference.

Get Smart, both the TV show and the movie had it appear as I recall.

Stacking before Recycle Rush made it boring.

It’s said if you build a better mousetrap, the world will make a path to your door.

What about a Demon trap?

We built a life size Mouse Trap game!
Why are you hiding?
I’ve seen what happens to the mouse in the board game.

The mechanical team’s smiling because this year (2005) was the first year ever the programmers weren’t ready for the robot… the CMU camera kept fidgeting but finding that vision tetra was impossible.

Tom was the one who designed the manipulator mechanism. He knew how finicky it was. So when the time came to pose with the robot with the tetras overhead, he was smart enough to take cover under the table.

Reference gotten, and Billfred, if I end up winning something, please give it to EricH instead if his post doesn’t already place above mine. I haven’t seen that show in years.

Mentor 1: “Let’s try and hold the camera a little higher for the next shot”
Mentor 2: “But then we will see even less of the students”
Mentor 1: “So what, go ahead and hold it a little higher. The circular light reflection needs to be in the center of the rear Tetra in order to make it look like the Illuminati symbol”

The Transcendental Robotics Club finds their robot is more powerful if stored under the magical pyramids at night.

So, who is on transportation of the robot?

Seconds later, these members of 858 learned firsthand why you should always wear safety glasses and/or hide beneath a table during team photos.

The design was perfect, until they tried to get it out the door.

Let’s build an apparatus to harness gamma rays and get superpowers!

Insert “I understood that reference” gif.

And my entry:
“You turned my clothes rack into WHAT?”

While testing whether the Power of Pyramids was a real thing or not, they got tripped up when they made tetrahedrons instead.

Side note: The lettuce wilted, but the Twinkies stayed fresh.
