(Hawaii MidWeek)   Back when Subby was a kid, we didn't have robotics competitions in school. Nor did we have robotics-nerd girls who went on to win beauty pageants. Damn, you kids nowadays are lucky   (midweek.com) divider line 38

Marry me. Please. Between your looks/brains and my snarkiness, our progeny would rule the universe.

If you had girls back then, it's guaranteed that at least one of them went on to do exactly what you just suggested.

We didn't just magically come into being this generation, you know.

Well that is just great, but she would never even give anyone on this site a date let along marry them.

On the chance there is one person who clicked on this link because of the word "robotics"

She competed in US First, which is an awesome program founded by Dean Kamen.  I have coached and judged at the FLL level for years.  Kids can join that level at 9 years of age and it costs about $350-500 TOTAL to run the team for the season (after you have the lego robot, which is about $250).  With 8 kids on the team it's less than $50 a kid and they learn engineering concepts, programming and teamwork. It's great fun and the kids have no idea they are learning. ;-)  Most teams can get one local business to sponsor them for the whole nut, like little league.

FRC, the big one, costs more but the teams are larger, and the big engineering colleges (Carnegie Mellon, MIT, Stanford) have been known to recruit from the program.

Anyone can start and coach a team and you don't need ANY experience in engineering or programming (although it helps).  It's less work than little league or girl scouts. It's really easy.  An idiot like me can do it, and I coached a team that won a champions trophy once!

I highly recommend anyone who wants their kids to develop technical aptitudes to get involved in this program.

FTFAThrough high school and college at the University of Hawaii at Manoa she has maintained a glistening GPA and just graduated May 11 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and a minor in political science.

You still wouldn't be seeing her if you were an engineering major.

I got involved with a local First robotics team as a mentor recently. These kids are awesome! My first project with them was for the Red Bull Challenge and we had a great time. Not only are the kids super awesome but the adults who work with them are cool also. This summer we're building a 3d printer. I'm stoked.

Our robotics team has a girl who is a 15-year-old Bailey Quarters. At the competition with hundreds of high school boys, she did not get hit on at all. Those sorts of things are amusing to me.
 
2013-05-19 01:26:07 PM  
That's great and all but call me when its more important to society as a whole that she be smart at all than a sex object.

Just let me third what these two have said; I mentor our local FRC (high school) team and it's a blast, and the kids learn more practical stuff with than they do in most of their classes.

The picture with her family and she is showing all that leg is kind of creepy.

But in a way so is teen pageants.

Not as bad as kids pageants I guess.

"Hopefully, I get to serve as Miss USA and Miss Universe, but after my pageant life is over, my dream job would be to host a show on the Travel Channel," she says in regard to her journalism degree. "I would love to host E! News, as well - anything in the broadcast industry."


She is like such a total nerd. Oh em gee. She's like, Princess Mario with better legs!

Look, it's nice that some people think it's chic to not be empty inside, but these embellished pageant bios are just patronizing to everyone involved.

Hmm, yes that all sounds totally nerdy. Meh, I know a hotter and more nerdy girls who aren't plastic. One who is a zoo keeper, and one who is a programmer with a degree in chemistry.

Ahh, yes. So geeky. I bet she even wears quirky glasses when she reads Cosmo, and has a t-shirt that says "Talk nerdy to me."

Why do any nerds think they would have a shot at her? maybe if you look like a dude she'd like to bang, or have tons of money but other than that, yea no.
 
2013-05-19 08:46:48 PM  
Good for her.  No, seriously.  She is someone who knows what she wants in life and is going for it.  And, she will probably be a contributing member of society when she does not win the Miss America pageant.  Yeah, she will not win.  Hawaii never wins.  Well, except for those two other times, but those were flukes.

I haven't checked my lottery ticket, so I don't know if I have a shot, yet.

I don't know how old subby is, but in my day we had Winnie Cooper, aka Danica McKellar, who was Kevin's sweetie in "Wonder Years", and went on to writes books on mathematics and have her name on a theorem, when she wasn't busy posing for Maxim.

If you used one of those programs that blends the faces of the mother and father, the LAST thing on earth you would expect was a Miss Hawaii that looks like that! Her mom looks like a sunken eyed zombie ghoul or something.
Is that Leonard from Big Bang Theory?

To be fair 90% of those girls stopped playing video games when they turned 12.

Take from that what you will.

I am willing to bet money that at some point she built her very own f*cking machine.

nocturnal001: To be fair 90% of those girls stopped playing video games when they turned 12.


True, true.  Although, there are ones who don't, like a friend in Hawaii, probably in her 30s, who I can ask anything I could want to know about games, death metal, probably beer, and oh, yeah, the giant telescopes she runs.  And who looks a little more like a real human, and less silicone-y, than Miss Hawaii USA.  And who sometimes lurks on Fark... so I may be in trouble now.
