    I had online homework in a Statics class. It's totally stupid! I get that it requires less from the professor and graders, but learning math is all about learning an approach to problem solving. Submitting answers only doesn't show that.

    The thing I don't get about my class is that we're divided into smaller sections that meet twice a week. We have quizzes in these sections, and the TA grades those quizzes by hand. Would it be asking so much more of the TAs to grade 20 homework assignments too? Also, online homework is really fun when the campus internet dies and is dead all day and the homework is due.... but the internet is dead!
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    If I send you my homework internetz, will your dog eat that too?

    I wanna keep the useful internetz around, though.

Also their tight costumes look silly and do not add to the viewing pleasure. Maybe the tight clothing is uncomfortable and and makes them ride with stiff legs and poor downhill ability. I think even tights affect slight downhills because they walk their bikes down slopes that are equal to my driveway.

    I think this could be a good lesson for beginners. Do not try to look like a baby giraffes first stand when going down hills.

    Obvious a troll, and obviously never followed me down a hill, I'll call you out on your BS anyway, I'm a HT rider, theres a nice 9 mile long DH fire road just minuts from my house, care to get dropped brah?.

    Hello bro. I don't understand your dropped but I think maybe you want to hug me and let me go awkward. I'm sorry bro if I don't understand your thoughts but it seems you have something to your mind. I don't ride the fire roads of course they are not too fun for me but I do have the HT called DirtJumper from Yeti that I can use but i much prefer my 575 for the mountain trails.

    Angryful? I changed the "picture" just for you.

    Look man, you are rolling out of SoCal on all your IP's. This thread doesn't belong in the beginner forum and by your list of bikes you own you are not a beginner, I am moving it to a more appropriate forum so that you may garner more negative rep.

    Thank you. I stay in Santa Barbara for the working, and live in Les Duex Alpes in the holiday season when the snow is gone.

    I was thought the beginning forum was for new to the mtbr.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I may not be as fast as I'd like to be when it comes to blasting downhill! But in the midwest where I'm from: Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin (where I did most of my riding for the past x amount of years), these states have nothing that comes even close to the "mountain trails" I'm riding now in the Vegas area! I see all my Vegas riding buddies blasting down the AM trails at places like Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, and as much as I'd like to bomb these trails as fast as they can, I keep reminding myself that they've been riding on this kind of terrain for more years than I have! Also, I'm not gonna ride way over my skill level just because some goof on an internet forum thinks XC racers are slow!

    It's kind of funny in this day of the internet... People like to think that the bike one rides, or the type of riding he does (or his opinion for that matter) is better than anyone elses, when in reality, who really gives a sh!t what you think..!

    Ride on...

    That's pretty bad when he can't even spell Les Deux Alpes correctly. Maybe he's a moron in 2 languages.

    Been there, bad thing was I usually did forget my homework at home, however I proudly did it one night, set it down while I took a leak by the fence waiting for the bus and the damn goat came up and Chawed down, I could not get the teacher to believe me of course.

    Are you serious? No offense but do you have room temperature IQ?

    The answer is pretty obvious. They are slow going down hill because they are using their brakes. Do you know what brakes are?
