The last time I checked the Battlebots rules, <A HREF="http://www.battlebots.com/rules.html," TARGET=_blank>http://www.battlebots.com/rules.html,</A> section 11.2, "Forbidden Weapons", Article 7, states:<P>"Heat/Cold - Heat or cold specifically generated to damage an opponent is forbidden.
-Flame Throwers
-Plasma Torches, etc.
-Liquid Nitrogen"<P>
So, yeah, half Beagle/half robot hybrids that spit fire and get the Playboy channel would be right out of the question.<P>...Perhaps a half beagle/half robot hybrid that captured its prey with dozens of needle-sharp harpoon-tipped retractable tentacles would be a better choice?

Well shit. I hate it when readers to research and I don't <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"> Let's just say this is a slightly cooler version of Battlebots, where you can build anything your twisted heart desires, including flamethrowers, neutron bombs, and old toothbrushes you found in the gutter.<P>"a half beagle/half robot hybrid that captured its prey with dozens of needle-sharp harpoon-tipped retractable tentacles"<P>I also hate it when readers write better than I do <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"> hehe. Thanks for the heads up, CapitalG. I'll be more careful in the future <P>------------------

Well, As a member of an unnamed Battlebots club, I find this storyline very funny... (The others in the group weren't so impressed. Must have hit too close to home or something...) And the rules are lame. Paul, The firespitting beagle cyborg needs to go and whoop some pansy rule person into some reason here.

How come their arn't any suicide bots. I want to make a robot that grabs the oppentent and blows inself up, or goes into melt down. A gasoline tank on wheels would do the trick, you blow it up and say it was a design flaw after the fact. I would die luaghing if I saw a crater in the floor where my suicde bot once was.
Do the rules rule out, covering the enemy with globs of toxic radioactive blig. It would not only fuse the enemy to the floor but make it hazadous to repair, or even get near.
This is a subject that I can easily be creative with. I'm rolling on floor luaghing as I write this. I think you might find this as funny as I do if you stop to visualize what I wrote , or am I alone on this one. <P>I'm a sad little clown, who wants to play with me? I have an eskimo pie!
eat it bitch!!!<P>I should stop here....<P>aw hell with stopping, I'm feeling to silly silly to stop. My mommy has eskimo boots, want some?<P>I'm having a flash back now. I think it was when I was 13. I accidentaly walked into some old lady and she fell down, and she was like "I've fallen and I can't get up" sort of thing. I got so scared and didn't know what to do, so I just starting kicking her till she stopped screaming, and I ran away.

Oh yeah... what would Larry's battlebot look like? I have no imagination because I'm incoherant and it's 3:54 am. My biological clock keeps getting reset every time my mom wakes me up just after I go to bed. My lifesucksmylifesucksmylifesucks...
I think I'll go off to draw some cyborgs now, come to think of it.
I want my kitty! My kitty loves me. At least I can cry on her shoulder... until it gets sopping wet and she runs away. Oh why... cruel world?

KWAYNAGAIN :cry: oh good here comes Kiggy. She says 'mah-aou?' Good Kiggy. I love Kiggy... she likes to jump into my lap and purr when i'm in front of the computer. Oh good Kiggy... :(
"Of course I have an imaginary friend! His name is Bernie!"
"You know Bernie?"

The story behind the pic: 'Patchwork Willy' is my avatar, 12" framed, and on my wall now. I just happened to be next to him when he yawned. This fairgoing alpaca's color picture won me my third 4-H trip to the State Fair in a row way back when! I showed Willy my 'Best in Show plaque.' He wasn't thrilled. (Yes, it IS in focus, by some fluke, trust me.) 'Adventures With Adjustable Cameras' Woo. No one told me you had to be competent with a camera AND have people skills! That was my only downfall. So much for bribing the judges.
WHAT?!?! It's the right size, right amount of pixels, and I entered in jpg, png, and gif versions! Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?!!?!? Until you do, I won't change/shorten this!
