You've got a lot of nerve to say you've got a helping hand to lend

Laura K. (EXCISED) is a plagarist and Nate Kushner is like unto a God to me.

Plagarism is wrong, mmm-kay? You shouldn't take other people's work and claim that it's your own. If you read it somewhere else, you should say where you read it.

And just contracting out your own education? That's, like, relly wrong. Because college is relly exPENsiiiive and if you're not going to ackshully do the work, you should spend the money on something cool.

But most importantly, the Internet is full of mean fraudulent people who will take your money and not deliver on their promises.

And they're smarter and funnier than you.

If you can't be honest, be afraid. Be very afraid.

Sweet Varnasrama Vindaloo Dharma, stay my hand from doing this to the next bonehead who asks one of my library listservs to comment on what is clearly a question from a take-home exam. Although, in fairness, a transparent plea for help is a far cry from an unsolicited invitation to commit fraud.

(Oh... and Vindaloo Dharma Bums would be a great name for a community softball team. Or a coffee shop.)

By the way... feeling much better now, thanks. A whole lot of sleep and a serious infusion of orange juice and Herself's Thai hot and spicy shrimp soup, and I'm much closer to human.

(Edit: Well, the original author took her name down, so I figured I would too. Sounds like the girl is in a mess of trouble.)
