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

Go!

Skynet initially took over the world in 2007, but the Terminator 867 failed to eliminate its one human target for reasons, that, in hindsight, were obvious.

Student with hands on head: …what do you mean…“there is a height limit”…?

Loose lips might sink ships. But loose nuts and bolts will cause catastrophic failure on a scissor lift.

Person standing: “Guys, can’t you just make the lift work like this?” Demonstrates with arms.

After punching a hole in the ceiling, they realized they really should’ve gone outdoors to fire the disintegration ray.

The concept was to build a Robot wielding a Light Sabre.

Okay guys, it’s one hour till we need to crate the robot. Did you remember to lube the scissor lift joints?
Yes, but now it won’t collapse.
Let me see the spray lubricant can.

Guy on the right: “I knew that one slightly shorter bar would be an issue.”

Freshman, upon first seeing the robot: “Wait… you’re telling me that a scissor lift isn’t made of scissors??”

“I pray to thee, almighty Scissor Lift God, to make this elevator design be useful at some point in the next 20 FRC games.”

Unfortunately, the scissor lift god is also the god of linear slides.

Let’s get judgy, shall we?
