red5ish: Next thing you know they'll find out there are students drinking beer at parties.
UberDave: Let me guess, they did what every other HS metal shop in the country is doing behind the teacher's back and made Chinese throwing stars. (clicks link) Yep.Just be thankful they haven't learned how to asplode things with the acetylene.
Ex-Texan: Keep the shop classes, otherwise where will we keep all the white trash?
GanjSmokr: Back in the 80s I converted one of those switchblade combs to a switchblade knife with the spot welder in shop class. The shop teacher helped.
AlgaeRancher: ....I loved shop class and wish schools offered more of that type of education. Everyone who aspires to own a home or car should learn a thing or two about making and repairing stuff.I am a parent and not real happy about the state of education in this country.
buzzcut73: Whatever happened to "pour the beer out before I call your parents". That's what the cops did back in the Jurassic when I was a teenager. Oh wait, I meant the '90s.
ajgeek: Ex-Texan: Keep the shop classes, otherwise where will we keep all the white trash?I had no idea you viewed engineers as white trash. Tell me, what do you think of doctors!?/I come from a long line of shop idiots.
Super Chronic: ajgeek: Ex-Texan: Keep the shop classes, otherwise where will we keep all the white trash?I had no idea you viewed engineers as white trash. Tell me, what do you think of doctors!?/I come from a long line of shop idiots.It's true, you can take both shop AND trigonometry.[www.dvdactive.com image 300x141]"Did you know that without trigonometry there'd be no engineering?""Without lamps there'd be no light!"
valkore: Since any piece of wood or metal 12 inches or longer can be used as a weapon, I propose we force shop class students to use only popsicle sticks and foil gum wrappers for wood and metal shop classes, respectively.
bojon: I made a cannon in metals shop and the carriage in wood shop. Only 24" long, but still cool.
Aulus: Hell, kids were doing this in shop class when I was in jr. high in the early Sixties.The strangest instance was where guys were crafting ¼" dowel rods as "quart low!" sticks. For some crazy reason, there is was a big fad in 8th grade for guys to use these or pencils or whatever to sneak up on other guys, ram them up between the victim's buttocks, yank them back and yell, "Quart low!"Honest to God, I have know idea how or why this stupidity got started./why, yes, it was in Florida
StoPPeRmobile: FTA, "Winter says it appears the weapons weren't made this school year."I wonder how Winter knows that.
