There's a big robot competition tomorrow in Cape Girardeau. Not for large robots. The competition is what's big.
Genius and his fellow Robot Boys have been traveling the county, garnering donations and demonstrating their metal dude to elementary and middle school students. They ran into some trouble this morning at the middle school, when their creation would not animate.
In explaining the debacle to another teacher, one Robot Boy said, "We had a real problem. His nut fell off and rolled across the floor." Which sounds doubly horrifying when described in those terms.
I'm hoping they can rebuild him, like Steve Austin. They have the technology. But lack the six million dollars. In spite of the donations.
