Sad story about Chopstick Junior and Campus Party Berlin 2012

Well, let me begin with an introduction of the robot and the event but you need to promise me to read it to the end...or just the end if you don't have time.

Kirchoffs Voltage Law and Current Law - is there easier math for this?

I think I understand the simple examples for this law, thought the math (algebra) is a bit daunting as its been many many years since high school, and I wasn't very good at it then. The more complex examples make me dizzy.  I have to believe there is an easier way to understand and use this law in my robots circuits. Or is this something that I will rarely use? Is there an easy "rule of thumb"?

Here is an example from the class, not even terribly complex, but seems that way for me.
