 see forget about evry thing else and worry about the schooling and then you can do whatever you want when you are older

but i cant work on my yamaha right now because its raining :(
 thats good umm why is your yamaha out in the rain 
Acepilot42 (author)  acidbass7 years ago
its well tarped. we dont have a garage.
 well then your carb is clogged and your fuel is water logged 
Acepilot42 (author)  acidbass7 years ago
no it was doing that the previous summer!
 oh but the outside exposure can make it do that
Acepilot42 (author)  acidbass7 years ago
????? more datail please
 outside exposure can cause rust and damage to the engine I know that you dont have a garage but if you have a shed or even a a taught tarp like tent style

ohhhhh shitaki shrooms!!!!! last summer my bro broke the back wheel, and it didnt get fixed for a month or two and it was uncovered for like 3 weeks.
 well that is why you have the prob with the engine your fuel is waterlogged and your carb is screwed now I know for a fact that the carb needs to be rebuilt and the fuel ciphoned out of the tank and lines and engine you need to take it to a small engine repair place

how much will this cost???!!!!!! (sweat dripping from forehead)
 depends on the damage and the repair person but at the dealership i work at it is about 100 buck to do the whole thing
Acepilot42 (author)  acidbass7 years ago
fyi my bro broke my back wheel, and it was 241 smackeroonies...
 well wheels are a little priceyer but it could easily get into the 200s if the damge is more than I think the price also depends on where you live my shop is in texas so it is a little cheaper

I have been reading your stuff on this site for a while now, as has everyone else here. You are not stupid. You are an intelligent kid. Suck it up and tell your mum what has happened. Take your medicine.
You know what you need to do. Channel some of that energy and enthusiasm into your schooling. Get the job done, and the world is yours. I know it seems to be taking forever, but believe me, it will be gone in the blink of an eye, and you will be wondering how you ended up where you are.
Start by writing all your electronic messages with correct spelling and grammar. Have some respect for yourself and others.
Sorry about the lecture, but you got yourself into this position, only you can get yourself out. We all make our own lives, and yours is layed out before you waiting for your choice.

Sorry to get all serious on you, maybe some of the other old blokes can relate to what I've said.
I tottally agree with ork, Kryptonite and steve.

Also ork for best answer.
Acepilot42 (author)  caarntedd7 years ago

what stuff of mine have you been reading?

Your questions/answers/comments. Do you think you write stuff here and noboby reads it?
(Well, I don't read it. I'm running the knex blocker, so all I see is his username and that's enough to kill the rest of the comment. Interesting side effect.)
Acepilot42 (author)  orksecurity7 years ago
tired of seeing those gunes eh? me too!
Is there a "how do I hack my school's firewall?" blocker? I would subscribe. HA!
You could do what I've been meaning to do, and try adapting the code of the existing Greasemonkey script to change its keywords and maybe how it matches against them. Or code something from scratch. (That's assuming you're using Firefox as your browser. If not, you get to hunt down the equivalent local-processing tool, if there is one.)

I really wanted it to block knex-related Answers questions, but so far I haven't had time to make that work.

(Sorry, 'suspension. Didn't mean to hijack your discussion.)
Acepilot42 (author)  caarntedd7 years ago
no i think i write stuff and nobody aknowledges it :( excecpt the answer i put on how to lean guitar :)
This is where there is an ensemble best answer. All that's been said is good advice.

There are no shortcuts to success.

Just a side comment, be glad your mother cares about your grades.  There are lots of parents out there who don't give a darn about their kids.  It's too much bother!

ya it isa pretty good thing. :)

Write her a long, grammatically perfect letter explaining why it will never happen again.  And, after reading your question, I will point out, that includes proper punctuation and capitalization.

ya im so used to chatrooms u need 2 to like that. i just didnt do a project so i got 2 zeroes in the grade book.
Be careful that you don't let text and leet speek into your English work.

First off, I highly doubt that your mom will execute you. I partially agree with "Burf", but the best way is to just simply explain to your mom how you got a bad grade and how you know that it is bad. Explain how you will be trying lots harder, and afterwards, maybe do a few nice things for your mom, such as help out with chores. Such as, if she grounds you for a week, maybe she'll change it to a few days. 
If you can figure out what parts of the test you performed poorly on, tell her that too and discuss with her how you're going to study to improve that particular skill. She may have some specific advice for you.

And face it, a bad grade is a bad grade, and while you may not think this stuff is important right now it WILL come back to haunt you later. You really do want to fix this, for your own sake and not just because you're disappointing your Mom.
Best answer nomination above!
