Default How VTEC Works

My friend messages me and asks me how does VTEC work. So i explain the whole VTEC deal to him. He told me he was talking to a guy at a Honda bike dealer. The guy is like when the car is under 5kRPM, then only 2 cylinders fire. When the car hits 5k, all four fire. I'm like wtf is that guy smoking. Are people getting dummer?

Yes, people are getting dumber. (just pickin' with ya.)

But seriously, that just goes to show that people in general are full of bullcorn. They run their heads just to sound like they know what they are talking about. This kid at work told me he had a twin turbo Celica. After I started asking him about it and he obviously didnt' have it/know anything I told him, "Dude, seriously, you should make sure people are stupid before you say stuff like that."

Spelling was never my strong spot. This VTEC guy is in sales of bikes, so i guess he doesn't know ****. There are so many ppl (especially teens) that talk loads of BS. I don't even know why they talk if they don't know ****, especially with me cause i got a rep of bieng kind of a car geek.
