Shoot the breeze with other Olympians.

As said by my lovely coach to myself.

Her "Do you know what your problem is?"
Me "Ehh I have a vague idea."
"Your a lazy slacker with no sense of your potential. You could be great, we could win state, and you could be a doctor if you wanted to. Instead you have decided not try. Now in five years you are going to be hanging out in coffee shops discussing philosophy with the Bolsheviks and wearing berets. You are going to be a Bolshevik. Do you want that to happen?"

Admittedly we were both quite stressed at that time. This was right before regionals and we have a somewhat unique relationships. I just found it hilarious that she said I was going to be a Bolshevik of all things. Well now almost everyone on our team has used the word as a somewhat endearing insult.

Lolz, I said that to fantasyfan actually.

Today, one of my friends had the bright idea of giving fantasyfan two sandwich bags full of sugar. He ate all of it except for what I confiscated and ate myself

Yesterday we were at states and there was a team waiting outside a building. As we walked by, someone threw open a window on the third floor and yelled down to his team, "DO WE NEED TO IMPOUND CALCULATORS?" it was hilarious at the time....only in scioly.

haha, my team kept a notebook full of quotes at nationals last year, we wanted to put them all on a shirt, but most were deemed inappropriate by our coaches... Most came from our frustrated Mission Possible team. Some include:
"If at first you don’t succeed…don’t try skydiving."
" Think. There must me a harder way..."
"IT WORKS! Oh wait. No it doesn't."
"“What do you want to drink?” “Isopropyl alcohol.”"
"Embrace the butterflies. Talk to them. Give them nectar. And they will love you."
"Superglue gets everywhere – except where you want it to."
and "Tier 3 the male announcer."
There's just too many good ones to add...
"I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues.”
But in order to speak for the trees, one must know what they are...

When in doubt, the answer is... CANOE!

When deciding events for Nationals:
"There are three blocks with only the letters <insert my initials here>. I think we need to fix that."
(This is what comes of being the only one willing to do five or six events...sigh...)

And later, one of our coaches when discussing winning at Nationals:
"If we beat Solon and win the National Championship, I will streak around the coliseum naked."

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

An exchange between my astro partner and myself before awards (note that both of us were quite sleep-deprived at this point):

Me: "If I go down for a medal in Astronomy, I really hope I don't trip down the stairs and fall on my face."
Him: "If you trip and fall on your face, I'll trip and and fall on your face too."
Me: "Uhh, I think you mean - "
Him: "Oh, whatever. I meant 'my face'...that WOULD be extremely awkward, wouldn't it?"
Me: "Yep..."
Him: "Anyways, if you trip and fall on your face, I'll join you."
Me: "But then we'd BOTH look like idiots."
Him: "Yes, but it's infinitely better to be embarrassed WITH someone else than by yourself."
Me: "I guess..."

For the record, I did not trip. :P

Have you lost the game today?
I LOST THE GAME!
Psst, I have a secret. I lost the game.
