A college degree is the new high school diploma. It’s the minimal education most employers require of their workers, no matter how menial the task. A college degree brings with it crippling student debt, living in your parents’ basement, not being able to afford a car, and working your butt off at multiple low paying…
My barber has a friend with one of these, a black GT350 with white racing stripes. Anyway, it’s about to be my junior year (in high school). Any suggestions besides: don’t do drugs, don’t pick fights, and do the work? I walk to school because I live right next to my school, so I get to sleep later than most people (no…
So I got an invitation to go to the Detroit Auto show. However I have to apply with a resume, as they assume you’re job seeking. Seems like a great opportunity. I’m a first year, if any one is curious.
Designed for the USCAR program, October-December 2001. Of course that program was cancelled like right after we started it.
This was my thesis model at CCS, 2003. It was displayed at the 2004 NAIAS, and lived at the American Plastics Council Learning Center thereafter. Wish I could have kept this one. It was a labor of love.
It’s only the 2nd week of school and people (myself included) are falling victim to sickness. Most of the people I sit with got sick on Saturday just like me. Nothing too bad, just cold symptoms. I would rather this not be happening, but whatevs!
Sophomore year here I come!
Seeing as it’s that time of year again for all of us young Oppos to return to school, I decided to ‘celebrate’ by doing a review on a product used commonly among the thousands of students worldwide: the PaperMate Write Bros. Chances are, if you’re American, you’ve written with one of these pencils at least once. They…
We're Jalops, we sit on our computer, drool over videos of Group B rally cars, on a whim Google 1984 Audi Sport Quattro for sale USA, get discouraged because we'd have to mortgage our lives to afford one, and walk outside to play Stig Blomqvist in our daily driver.
Writing a report on the Canadian automotive industry and how there are no Canadian automotive brands (except for a few niche producers) is going to drive me insane. At least there are a few bits of gold:
In my fourth quarter at South Seattle's Aerospace Maintenance Technology school, I just finished giving an ancient motor a makeover, rebuilding everything around the engine except the engine itself, and I learned quite a bit.
On Monday, I was in my Electronic Field Production class editing a video when my professor looked over at my screen. I was working on a clip of my girlfriend reading a book. The professor then says, "She looks REALLY familiar. Is there any chance that she could be on a popular internet site...like a porn site?" I…
Well I'm going to be a senior next year. I am struggling with picking an English course to take. I want to know from you, which you prefer: AP Lit, AP Lang, or ENC 1101/1102? I don't really want to take basic English 4. The only reason I didn't do DE this year was I hated the teacher. Opinions and advice greatly…
We recently had to write an essay about whether or not we thought athletes made too much money. The teacher spent about a month teaching us formatting and the likes. I hated it. So I wrote my essay how I write normally and turned it in. On a scale of 1-6, my teacher gave me a 2. The county which then went and graded…
One of the TOP questions that pops out of my email, chat, messenger, and phone is: "How do I get started in rally racing?"

In geometry I have a substitute teacher because the real teacher got married over break and is on her honeymoon. I like the substitute so much better. Nicer in every way. How was everyone's first day back (everyone who went back today that is.)?

I'm writing a research paper on the negative environmental impacts of hybrid/electric vehicles. Wish me luck.
