Why You Need to Drop Everything and go to Dirtfish Rally School NOW!

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. » 3/15/15 4:40pm 3/15/15 4:40pm


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: » 3/14/15 11:10pm 3/14/15 11:10pm

I Just Gave An Aircraft Engine A Makeover

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. » 3/07/15 2:32am 3/07/15 2:32am

I Just Did Something Crazy

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… » 2/10/15 5:13pm 2/10/15 5:13pm

Can Anyone Offer Me Some High School Course Advice?

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… » 2/03/15 9:50am 2/03/15 9:50am

This Is One Reason I Hate School

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… » 1/15/15 3:06pm 1/15/15 3:06pm

Near SoCal? Let's get you into Performance Rally!

One of the TOP questions that pops out of my email, chat, messenger, and phone is: "How do I get started in rally racing?" » 1/14/15 4:16pm 1/14/15 4:16pm

The first day back at school was pretty good actually. 

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.)? » 1/05/15 6:37pm 1/05/15 6:37pm

Here's to All You College Oppos

I hope you don't have to deal with the kind of crap that I have had to in order to finish the semester. This student has missed over 15 class sessions and when she was in my group for the last project, didn't do a single bit of work. Have a great day everyone. » 12/04/14 9:24am 12/04/14 9:24am

This Is My Teacher's Car

2013 Porsche Cayman S with the PDK and Sports Chronos Package (and leather wrapped dashboard). Its also got another $17,000 of options (dont know which). He already was an awesome teacher, but this makes him even cooler! » 9/03/14 6:49pm 9/03/14 6:49pm

When it comes to the school run, the gloves are off

The 15 minutes or so that I spend waiting to pick my brother up from school every day never fail to entertain. Today, for instance, I watched a fully grown woman in a Caravan block another woman from going in front of her (she ought to have let her go) and then stop in the middle of the road and stick herself out the… » 8/18/14 6:35pm 8/18/14 6:35pm

"First day of school" aka Go and get your new laptop. (and car stuff)

That is how I spent an hour of my afternoon. On the right is my old school computer, a 2011 Macbook, which I bought from the school at the end of last year. On the left is my smaller, DVD drive-less, and completely awesome school-issued 2014 Macbook Air. I am thrilled with both. Also, I was surprised to find that,… » 8/12/14 8:14pm 8/12/14 8:14pm
