    During the summary in lecture today in school we were going over different suspension components. The teacher was a little edgy. He asked what a shock absorber was.


    Instead of blurting it out i politely raised my hand and told him limiting strap. Needless to say i got sent to the office and got told to quit being a smartass. I thought it was a good answer but apparently i was out of line. I hate getting antzy on fridays

    wow that guy is an ass... but then I probably would have called you a dumbass in front of the class, afterall using a shock as a limiting strap is a good way to destroy one and its mounts.

    most of my teachers were such assholes they'd rather publicly humiliate you in front of your friends than send down any real "punishment".

    Sent you to the office for that? Wow, what a loser.

    I like whitty responces, I would have just used it as an example and moved on.

    Ya know, the more I think about that. What the hell is wrong with giving a wrong answer? You were wrong, so he should correct you and then move on. I remember why I hated highschool so much.

    Well, the correct smart ass answer would have been:

    "Shock absorbers or "shocks" as they are commonly called, do no actually absorb "shocks". The springs on the vehicle actually absorb the shocks. The pieces you are refering to should be more acurately called vibration dampners. The springs absorb the shocks and the "shocks" dampen the vibration from the springs. Dickhead."

    Feel free to replace that last part....

    Yes we can get sent to the office, the office is in the classroom though and its just for the 3 teachers of that class. There is almost 70 kids in one class. Usually we lose points but friday was pretty hectic so i got out of it. I was being a smartass by saying limiting strap but that dont happen often. I should have gave the correct answer but I just couldnt concentrate friday.
