Science Olympiad Quotes

Post by JustDroobles » April 8th, 2009, 9:40 pm

My team keeps a list of weird, funny, and stupid things people have said at Science Olympiad. What are some funny quotes from your S.O. experiences?

Some from my team:
-The vent is the volcano's butthole.
-Can you help me get this test tube out of my hole?
-You're interfering with my studying - and life span!
-Road Scholar's not about using maps.
-What's China?
-Wood is a wood product, isn't it?

Churchill SO does NOT supply pants!!!
Full-circle seats
He stole my head!
Is that a rock or a mineral?
Popcorn obsession
Where is it? Where did it go?
My head hurts and I'm not even competing!
He hardly comes to school drunk any more
Science Olympiad is a tribute to Murphey's Law. This has been proven experimentally.
And no, I'm not a guy...even though my sig says will robsinson. It's a reference to Lost in Space, an ancient sci fi TV show. And the robot is the character who always says the line.

- "Sideways? The Trajectory just fired SIDEWAYS?!"
- "What's the density formula again?"
- "At Nationals, we'll be team number-"
"DON'T SAY THAT!"
"Sorry. If we make Nationals, we'll be team number B3 or B4."
"Thank you. I have to go knock on wood now."
- "Rule Number One: NEVER inflate [pjgscioisamazing]'s ego!"
- "Remember the SciO Family Tree?" (There's actually a long story that goes along with that one... including a whole family tree of most of the people who were on the team two years ago... lol)

There are probably so many more, but since we spaz at pretty much every meeting, they're easy to forget :lol:

At an invitational (thankfully) last year, I was doing Food Science with a newbie 7th grader. She was doing density in science at the time and was DEAD CERTAIN that density was volume over mass... luckily we got 6th, but I could have strangled her.

Before an invitational this year, some 7th graders were making a trajectory for the B-team. They took an pseudo-trajectory that had been made for a school competition (I don't know how many years ago) and modified it. I was watching them test it in the hallway. When they launched it, the arm swung up and snapped in half.

(P=partner, M=me)
P:"Hey we cant do test on trajectory today."
M:"Why not"
P: "Well some of the wood is spliting. So unless you have something in your backpack that will hold lets just head in."
M (I drop my backpack and pull out to small tubes.)
P: "What's that?"
M: Green stuff. We mix the blue and green and this stuff is harder than stone.
P: "Zane, are you sure about this? It wont be weak and just snap off?"
M: "Nah, just make sure the ropes stay away from it"
P: "Why"
M: "Well it'll explode"
P:"......what?"
M:" dont worry, as long as nothing too hot stays on it, we're okay."
P:"but why will it explode."
M:"Green stuff is highley explosive."
P:".......You fire it then.'

On the bus ride to state this year, our coach made up a cheer, it was so funny! We sang it on the bus.

S-M-R-T You ain't got no alibi--you're smarties, uh uh, you're smarties!

We had so much fun with that this year. A girl on our team brought a stool from one of the science classrooms with us to state (I can't remember her justification for doing so) and we called it the lucky stool. We wrote that cheer on tape and taped it to that stool, along with tons of other crazy quotes from the day. All the tape is still on that stool, unless one of the janitors took it off. The things that are said at Science Olympiad, huh?

...some of us...no...A LOT of us made up quotes to motivate us after a devastating regionals while we were preparing for states.

of course, i went for some of the harsher, more serious ones: "there is no difference between second place and seventh place, the only difference is between first place and everything else" (that was made up during the long weeks of depression after regionals)

then another fellow sciolyian made up up a less serious one...something along the lines of this: "if anyone thinks that a sport has to be physical (or something like that) than the are most definitely, utterly, ____, and _____ naive (idk what goes in the blanks). if anyone thinks that SO is not a competition, they will find themselves being hunted down by science geeks at night." :lol:

also:
"sewing is my life, though i can't sew for my life"
"what's a phylum?" (said by another team doing a biology event)
"whats a gastropod?"(said by another team doing fossils)
