I know I am reviving this topic, but I not only have a good story, but I also want to continue hearing others’ stories. Here’s my story:
A couple years back at a competition, we needed to drill a hole in a piece on the robot. Is just so happened that the piece was right above the battery, but we needed the hole and our next match was coming up. The kids on the team said “It’ll miss the battery,” drilled the hole, and we played our match. When we returned to our pit after the match, someone noticed odd and asked, “Who spilled water in the robot?” Well it happened that we had drilled the hole in the battery, not noticed, played our match, and they now had a busted battery and sulfuric acid in our robot, and had no battery spill kit. We didn’t have a battery spill kit because, “Batteries never break open.” They ended up hiding the battery behind a potted plant for the remainder of the competition, and now we are much more careful with drilling in the robot.
