Go!

“OK, so you incorporated a racing speed boost into the robot. Why again?”

“Well, we need the speed?”

“You’re the video gamer, why would you put the track component onto the vehicle?”

How all of Indiana’s horses suddenly identified as zebras.

Student left of center: “You know guys, some day there will be a terrible disease throughout the world, and we won’t be able to gather together like this.”

Shocked reactions all around.

@cnepo “In ten years, this will make the caption contest. Then everyone on CD will finally appreciate our glorious flywheel used to kick clear across the field. And then they’ll wonder. Did they really traverse the bumps with mecanum wheels? Yes. Yes we did.”

“So… Explain again why this prototype Roomba doesn’t clean?”

“Never mine our pick list, we need a line for this week’s caption contest”

Charles: "I’ve been told, by the head ref, that our robot is illegal. Our rotating mass produces a tornadic like suction that ALL the soccer balls come towards our robot. They won’t allow us to play until we fix it’
Pause
Charles: “Just kidding.”

"Yeah, This guy just told me we have to play 67 twice, 294 three times and 1718 twice.
