This kid told me that his car had an afterburner. After fighting with him about for half an hour, so I had him tell me what it looked like. He told me that it was the two big round things behind the two smaller ones on the carburetor. And later that day I looked at his car and it had throttle body fuel injection.

RIGHT THERE!

Kid tried to convince me today that a V8 was ALWAYS better than an I4 or V6 because it has more cylinders....

I just gave up.

"my dad has a Mazda RX8 and he "upgraded" it and now it has 12 rotors!"

A friend of mine...an idiotic friend of mine, said that one day he'd called in sick, for school, and while at home, he apparently hacked the school computers, and got into the Vice Principal's computer, and started playing pong on it...When I asked him what OS he used, he says XP, I tell him that you can only hack through Linux, and he says..."No, I had XP Professional, it comes with "Lux" built in

Then again, this is the same kid that thought there was a Porsche Carrera GT (Canena according to him) had a special edition one with snow tracks, which would go as fast on snow as a regular GT on the road

Missed that...You can only hack computers if you are using Linux...I've looked into it, and was going to hack some friend's computers, just for jokes, but needed Linux..unless I misunderstood something?

Hacking has been around longer than Linux. Linux is just the preferred OS for hackers, so therefore alot of hacks were written in linux, so alot of the ones you read about have instructions for doing them in linux and not any other OS. Hacking can be done on any OS.
