This is one corner, of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see.
Anyone on a smaller/newer/whatever team going to St. Louis this year should message me. I’d love to help out with any problems you might have. I can give you my email or phone number in case you encounter any difficulties while you’re there.

There’s this guy who used to be on my robotics team, but dropped out of our high achieving school because he had shitty grades and joined another team. That team didn’t make it to champs, but the guy is going anyway. He’s going with us on the bus, and that really, really pisses me off.
It seems like I’m the only one who thinks this on the team, because everyone else seems to love him, but this guy is a douche. He’s arrogant, thinks he knows better than everyone else, and thinks he has a right to pass judgement on our team or have a say in what we do. Why the fuck is he going with us??
One of my mentors: When Dan gets here, I need you to not stand near him because your lotion is really strong scented, and it’s going to give him a headache,
Seriously? What the hell is that? You want me to not work and learn from one of the most brilliant people I know because of my lotion, that had, by the way, stopped being noticeable at that point? If you don’t want me involved with the robot, you’re going to have to fucking say it.

One of the posts in the championship predictions thread really made me smile, just because it was so cute. This is the same one with the “Karthik for president, Lunacy was an inside job, water game” thing. Also the same one that said my team’s bot is made out of magic and innovation. The guy predicted that 1114 would partner with 610, and then pick another team with years of experience with high power defense and offense. Saying that, he said it was unfortunate that my team - 469 - is in Curie, but that 1114 and 610 would pick a rookie team that’s mentored by 469 alumni. It was cute.
