Other than a couple of soldering iron burns, and getting ic's stuck in my fingers, last year at the FIRST Regional in LA I almost got decapitated by an out of control pneumatic arm.

When I was at a Regional for FIRST 2 or 3 years ago at Drexel University, I almost had my finger ground into powder by one of our robots gear boxes for the wheels... that wasnt fun... then I almost got run over by one of the other teams' little robot carrying robot.... go figure..... then I too almost got decapitated by a pneumatic arm... might have even been team MOEs.... or maybe it was a team next to them in the pit.... I dunno, I just remember seeing lots of green and that big green tower they always have with them...

.... anywayyyyy

My most unusual "injury" to date is ferrofluid in my eyes.  Stings a bit, but the odd part for me was actually thinking I needed to avoid getting my head too close to any magnets until they were rinsed for fear of the spiking effect of magnetic fields on ferrofluid.   ;)  Of course my right eye still tilts a little to the north every now and then

Not many people get mine until they think about it for a minute or two or until I explain it >_<


We need to colonize Mars and make sure only the cool people (the average SoR member :P) can come with us :D

I think we should keep Earth only because UPS does not deliver to Mars and I needs my robot parts  :)

Stick with humans providing the shipping service.  If robots are handling the deliveries it would be almost like shipping body parts, and sooner or later they would catch on to that and start seizing the shipments.

good call, the ensuing war could get ugly for us. Maybe we should just find our resources elsewhere anyway. Theres gotta be some silicon under Mars' crust. Besides, the world is going to end in 2012 anyway :P
