its my government teacher, but hell do extra credit on anything. to me it looks like a black egg, or a black football, with the letters "DTR" then on the next line what looks like "1F" i blew it up and its a dead match. colors are from top to bottom:
yellow: banana yellow
orange: sherbert orange
blue: like a blue grey sort of mix
green: "viridian"
purple: magenta
dark blue: navy
red: just red

it looks like a rainbow necked rear view mirror for a car. i think you should make the pic even smaller so it's even more obscure than it is now lol - :dodgy:

I did a search on DTR and also a image search on DTR but didn't come up with much. Also did an acronym search and it came up with a couple things but nothing that I would think is correct for this assignment. Wish I could help more. He doesn't give you anymore info about the picture?

my teacher has been considered to be odd, it wouldnt suprise me much if it was a little off subect... the past 2 questions were:

who was on the $500 dollar bill?

and what is this man's /pic/ significance to our class? (pic was of the green party's nominee for president)

this one was a little different... heres the exact wording of the question he has never put quotation marks around importance of or w/e so that might be a clue) he also stated it was an OBJECT which contridicts many people's belief that it is a political party's icon:The first student to email me "the importance of" the object shown above will receive 7 pts extra credit (7/0)

Alright, I may be way off with this idea but here goes. I was trying to think of terms of history and related ideas so.... how about that picture represents the idea of America and the "melting pot". We are one nation but is habitated by people of many colors. In another words, the black egg looking thing represents our country and the various colors of the wires represent the many different cultures/races that are part of our country. Just a thought, I may be way off on that one.
It's either that or a old school nerf football :)

its clearly a phallic symbol containing all the colors of the rainbow representing gay pride? the wires are stripped at the end to show that it is unsheathed and out and ready... everything is a phallic symbol to my english teacher :dodgy:

ok i came up with some bs (cuz teachers like that) answer, about how the importance doesnt lie in the correct answer but it lies in the variation of wrong answers recieved... heres what i wrote:


"The Importance of the black, egg-like object with colored lines
extending from the right and DTR 1F etending from it, is its
symbolism. The object can be viewed important by many people, but in
many different ways; some believe that the object holds its
significance in the colors, others in the shape, and others in the
letters which they believ they see coming from it. Contrary to these
beliefs, the object is not important with only one, or without them
all. This object symbolizes every single event, statement, issue, law,
etc. in the world, because of how people respond to it. Like the
response to this object, a certain event may have different meaning to
one person than it does to another because of thier two different
views. Although our views are different, the object remains the same.
The object is merely numbers which, when interpreted by a computer
become a "picture" in which pixels of different colors, combine to
form an object. This object is then recieved by our eyes, and
interpreted by our brains, which analyze it until we can no longer
think of any posibility to what it could mean. What does it mean? It
means electrical signals being sent from one machine to another, and
from our our computer moniter, into our eyes and broken back down into
electrical signals. This object has no significance, yet it has all
the significance in the world, because this object is miniscule
compared to our universe, yet without it the universe would be
incomplete. It has been a cause for the effect of the development of
the students' minds which will use this as a cause later in their
lives to acomplish whatever they acomplish, all because of desire, of
the hope that one may correctly guess what this object is, because as
it was once said "Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion,
simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest
weakness.". The importance of this object is that if helps us find our
purpose, because it is purpose that created us; Purpose that connects
us; Purpose that pulls us; That guides us; That drives us; It is
purpose that defines us; Purpose that binds us."
