I decapitated a broken Jazz sax Santa animatronic. We put the head on our robot as a decoration.
Why is our robot such garbage
Just fix it
This isn’t going anywhere
Things are falling off
Maybe some that are quite common
“Altiora Peto” ( Meaning “I seek higher things” in latin)
We say this because one we do stupid stuff so it’s ironic but
also so our robot can be better.
“It’s not a threat, it’s a promise”
“We should focus on auton instead of getting the bot in spec” -5 minutes before the competition
Coder: “Reset the field”
Me: “After I read every post on Dankest VEX Memes for the twentieth time.”
Me: Driver, can you make it to the tournament Saturday?
Driver: My flight comes in at 4.
Me: So no.
Me: Backup driver, can you make it to the tournament Saturday?
Backup driver: Yes.
Backup driver: I can’t make it.
The sad story of how we competed in our first tournament this season with our backup-backup-driver.
Well, glad you planned it out that far. We usually just assert drivership the day of and all train equally before hand.
“Nasa, I have a problem.”
(Said right into the mic)“Just wash it.”
Programmer: Ya know, you are the smartest dumb person I know
“What music are we listening to today boys”
At a recent Live Remote Skills
Team: “are the judges ready?”
Referee (slightly annoyed that there is yet another team that doesn’t know the difference between judges and referees): “There are no judges here, this is not a judged event. The referee is ready.”
“Why can’t we use flex wheels on the base?”

That is exactly something I was going to say!
“RYAN STOP CHANGING MY BUTTONS!”
“Stephen why does your robot kill its self every time you turn it on?”
“ryan your code makes me want to throw myself in the garbage”
“why is everyTHING IN A WHILE LOOP JOHN?!”
our driver - “things are falling off guys” our builders- “stop driving terribly then” driver - “uhhhh, stephen, the intake fell off” builders- “again?” programmer (me) - “can we stop building robots that should throw themselves in the trashcan?”
me building a vex tombstone - mentor( sam mcamis, team leader of gruff fom battlebots) - “ryan, whats that?” me - “um, a programming project?” “or OR, YOUR REVENGE : D” mentor - “idc if its a programming project, I’m technically not allowed to let you build this.”
most of my team roasts each others robot, code, or attachment of motors
“Rectangle, toss me that square. Stop glaring at me, would you?”
I recall having a similar discussion with other drivers on my team, we all agree it would be the most effective base
