    It's true. It doesn't really matter if I pour my soul into a paper or just do what Bamboo here says. I get the same grade.

    Ha. I would have failed a couple classes my now, if two of my professors hadn't let me turn in papers 5 days late with no penalty whatsoever (blatantly disregarding the policy in the syllabus).

    This thread is funny... I BS all the time in college, to the point where I've deceived both classmates and faulty alike. Only my close friends know my little ~secret. I've been doing it since what? Middle school? And it works too. I have a 95 in all of my classes (heavy load, 16 units)

    Anyway, why does it matter? It's not like your professor/teacher actually cares.
    Between that cigarillo and sticking my finger down my throat to see if I could DT, I feel like puking RN.

    Read my Blog.

    I wrote an entire blog on 'bullshitting', which is really amusing to me.

    My advice? Take the facts and ideas you want to get across, throw it with some Ne to keep some thoughts flowing, a whole lot of pretty words, good grammar, and a grain of salt. Put it in a food processor. It works, honestly.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Always reserve the right to become smarter at a future point in time, for only a fool limits themselves to all they knew in the past. -Alex
