"Quotes" that were said during build season

“It’s the mentor’s decision.” (As to who will be on drive team a literal week away from our competition, y’know doesn’t really matter that I drove allllll Week Zero. All that matters is that the mentors are happy!)

“A four-second elevator?!?! I could throw an elephant up in the air faster!”


#5719

After watching a ramp bot tying to climb another ramp bot:
“Look! Ramp bots mating!”
“Maybe we should lower the Sandstorm and give them some privacy”
“Someone play moon music.”
“So that’s how baby ramp bots are made.”
(It’s kind of become a running joke)

“Hey it fits! It’s almost like we planned it that way!” Three minutes later:
“Wait… no it doesn’t.”

“With enough pizza we can build anything”

After we bent a critical part of our elevator when we ran it through the bottom of our bot:
“well, run it too far up and maybe it will reverse itself”
Several days later the code breaks and the elevator tries to go too far up:
“Hey look! It did fix itself!”
