What is the funniest loophole you have ever seen? Kevin Yue studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology When I was in school they held a robotics competition It was pretty simple conceptually You had to make a firefighting robot It would have to navigate a maze find a candle and put it out fully automated no remote control I can't remember the exact size but I think the robot had to be smaller than 1 foot in length width and height Scoring was as follows You start with your time how long it takes to search every room and put out the candle and get deductions bonus points if your robot Put out the candle with anything other than a fan water for instance Searched every room didn't just stop at the one with the candle Could separate into parts to search rooms in parallel Operated on very little code there were a few benchmarks for this I entered a block of dry ice It basically just had a spring-powered hammer to shatter it into little pieces when the start timer went so that it would evaporate faster It basically just had a spring-powered hammer to shatter it into little pieces when the start timer went so that it would evaporate faster In seconds the entire maze was filled with a white fog and the candle was definitely out I had the fastest time by a landslide even before you counted my deductions Didn't use a fan? Check Search every room? Check Separate into parts to put out fires in parallel? Check I think I could've been the only person in history to ever win a robotics competition without writinga single line of code or soldering a single wire But alas the judges disqualified me by unanimous vote WHY ARE YOU BOOING ME? I'M RIGHT I see his robot as an absolute win Meme
