Why is this conversation getting weird?
dont ask its not my fault people call nylocks nuts
Ahem nylon lock nuts
Some form of this came up at least once a meeting during my robotics time:
“Just don’t kill each other”
Here’s another one:
Our team: ok guys we have to get this crap ton amount done today or we can’t compete next week
Guy on the sister team: Anybody want to play some Halo?
Our team: …we got time
I think it’s a personal quote for most teams, but I thought it went incredibly hard:
“I like keps nuts better”
“If it falls off we can add lock nuts then”
Thats our new team t-shirts, but my dad bought one just to see how it looked. Also our Quote is Dedication X Discipline= Everything is Earned.
“If we’re gonna do an 8 motor drive, might as well make it a swerve drive”
That reminds me, I (in the capacity of the team captain) often say to the freshman “Just don’t kill each other in the robotics room, do that outside if you really want to, I don’t want school admin to shut down robotics.”
I know it’s dark humor if you know the recent history of my school
(walking back from the room with freshly cut parts )
Sister teammate A: Don’t worry guys, sister teammate B and I used protection this time
Sister Teammate A: wait nonononono-
me getting the rachet screwdrive first, thankgod i can finally build fast, -senior team member swipes it from me. darn
why is our rachet not racheting
do you have any clue what you are doing? me: no but its working
“What are you doing?”
pretext :We had nylocks and people were taking them
“QUIT TOUCHING MYY NUTS!!!”
Freshman: asks a question about a sensor
My friend: “Do you have a brain?” (referring to the hardware)
Me: “Woah, no need to be rude. It was an innocent question”
My friend: Have you code the omni wheel
This reminds me, one of our freshman teams asked me “How do I code the little rollers on the omniwheels to move?” Took me a while to realize that they thought the omniwheels had tiny little motors attached each and every roller.
“If you want to code them just be aware the little roller motors do count towards your robot’s overall motor limit”
