I’ve been doing research for a history paper, which is due at the end of the month.
I came across one of those sites where you can buy research papers. My search had turned it up because they had a paper on my topic, all ready to go. They offered the first couple of paragraphs as a sample to entice me.
“Their paper was awful,” I told Alpha Geek later. “I’d be ashamed to put my name on it. Why would anyone buy an awful paper?”
Rational as always, he pointed out: “If you’re someone who has to buy a paper, maybe it has to be awful so the teacher will believe your sorry ass actually wrote it.”
