I looked into getting a team together, after beeing pestered by friends here in town. The teams are selected by a video that illustrates a scientific principle. This audition tape is what you have to go thru the first round of selections. On the website, they admit to setting up and hiding items in the yard. I know I've never seen a submarine and a few airplains in one yard all at the same time. I didn't form a team here because, well, all my friends are lazy bastards who talk a hell of a lot more than they actually do something.
I got so pissed with all the usless bastards that I went for battlebots instead. Now battlebots has turned their rules into 2 75 page books, and legislated everything to death, so I just can't compete. Can't really blame them, they had one of the "contestants" break a weapon and throw a chunk thru 1" thick lexan.
Maby we should start Moped wars or something. You think Speedvision would pick up the bar-b-que race?
