One of our former students had a post up on Facebook last night describing the problems he had with his non functioning car horn. He asked a car savvy friend about this and was told to check the connections to see if they were tight. "Tonight I got under the car and they were fine. I decided to take out my horn to get a better look at it and when I moved it around I heard it glug. I spun it around a couple of times and a bunch of water poured out. I did not know you could flood a car horn...at least now it's working properly again."
I found this fascinating because I have never given a thought to there being an actual physical horn on a car or even where it might be or that you could easily take it off, much less take it off to dump water out of it. I guess when it came to car horns had a vague idea that the horn might have been some sort of sound system connected to the steering wheel.
Later today I'm going to look under my car to see if the horn is at all obvious. I asked what it looked like and the answer was: "It looks kind of like a hockey puck with a miniature phonograph coming out of it."
I love learning something unexpectedly new.
