The registrar of Nigeria's university entrance exams reported in May that almost 2,000 of the students had been caught in cheating scams. [Agence France-Presse, 6-1-07]
Okay, so that amused me just because I wonder how many of those 2000 are now sending emails out with important business matters.
Have you cheated in school?
I refuse to answer!
And Neighbours! I love this video.

I cheated in seventh grade in one class. A friend would study for one test and I'd study for the next. I feel bad about it now because one of my closest friends is that teacher's daughter. Whoops!
In 8th grade, I was accused of letting some chick cheat off my paper. Well, she was a foot taller than me and, of course, could see my paper. I pointed out a couple other things I won't put here because I'm not so proud of what I said then. My NC history teacher hated me after our little 'discussion'. I passed; the cheater failed.
I tried once in high school because I was just not prepared. I got busted before the test started, failed miserably and never tried that crap again.
I would definitely not cheat now. Nor would I let someone cheat off my paper. Why take a class if you aren't going to study the material? (This happened in my culinary classes. WTF? Pay to fail? Brilliant!)
*nod* Exactly how I feel about it now too.
