It then became the only thing we say when after driving we find some bolts and nuts off the robots
An ENTIRE axle fell of my robot, and nobody could find out what it went to.
“If it falls off, and we can’t find where it’s come from, it’s not important”
“If it doesn’t work, blame the guy who isn’t here.”
“Hey, look! This robot is almost taller than [insert younger student here]!”
“I’ll program the autonomous on the day…” (doesn’t program autonomous)
Person A: “I have a great idea!”
Person B: “What is it then?”
Person A: “I forgot!”
(This actually happened to us in a judging interview recently)
And… my personal favorite…
“We’re the most diverse team here! We must be getting the Judges’ Award!”
when we don’t win the judges award
“Ah who cares? It’s only the Judges Award. We didn’t want it anyway”
“No stupid! The cable goes in this port!”
“BOI! The screw is on the wrong side!”
We say, “Another [part name] for the robotics God’s!” when we drop parts into the middle of the robot and can’t be bothered to fish them back out.
We don’t say that, we just do it.
This is relatable.
Our programmers favorite thing to say: “Our autonomous should work, theoretically”
This literally just happened-
Me talking in a video update before the next meeting
“Well, she’s a beauty”
Comment on the video
OMG (My real name) DID YOU JUST ASSUME IT’S GENDER??
its not on yt so dont look for it
Me to an team with an unfinished autonomous that tried to diss my auton: “Ah and I see your auton scores well, how long did that take?”
My teammate Carter: “We can make a claw hidden and people that see it would be like ‘omg where is your claw’ and then it would come out and bite their arm.”
Me: Carter no.
Carter: Carter yes.
Continues with building claw concealment
“It’s working because it’s broken!”
“That’s not aluminum, that’s steel, Ryan!”
A Judge to me:
“Hey that auton you just coded in 10 mins is our Highscore for skills and the tournament.”
A teamamte to me,”I’d call you sugardaddy but I don’t want to be offense, so you’re our glucose guardian.”
Teammate: “The robot better be put back together for Monday.”
Me:”Yeah it’d better be…”
Me:”I think I fried the cortex.”
4 hrs later:”I’m such an idiot! I plugged 8 3 pin ports in backwards! How?! How do you do that?”
“Uh, we should have our bot ready by this weekend” doesn’t
Teammate: “Where’s the engineering notebook?”
Me: “Over by the 3D printer”
Teammate: “Its not there!”
Me: walks over and picks up notebook “Right here”
Ryan: “Have you been working on the notebook.”
Me: “Yes. I got a whole page in!”
“Theoretically, this solves all our problems”
“just change the constant”
We have a hierarchy of “great robot inventions” at our team.
Number 1: Robot handles with antislip mats wrapped around them for competitions.
Number 2: The “toilet brush”, an axle with these things on them that were basically the key to our NBN robot.
And this years number 3: a wooden stick with two half gears stuck inside that we use to hold up our lift for In The Zone, that I have named El Clickõ.
“Hear me out… [Insert bad idea here].” Something I say to my team mates on a daily basis.
@roborattler Sooooo relatable.
This is pretty similar to my signature
“Beijing 696” - A teammate said when we found out a memeber (now removed) was completely copying a bot that was from Beijing and had a tag that began with 6.
Ahhh. This thread is hilarious.
Well, minus the last 6 XD
