Very strange coincidence

Sorry for being pedantic and also creating a bit of a tangent here - but this saying predates the Citrus Circuits. You definitely aren’t the only one to credit 1678 or their mentors for this statement in the past couple years, so they’ve certainly helped keep it in the FRC vernacular. But the “Steal from the Best, Invent the Rest” phrase is something that’s been in FRC at least since 2003 or 2004 (when I first heard it). You can find it in Chief Delphi posts in 2007 and 2009 ( already being referred to as cliche).

E; Found a 2004 reference
