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]

Heh.

Okay, so that amused me just because I wonder how many of those 2000 are now sending emails out with important business matters.

I did this play called "Eurydice Goes to College" - where these two college freshman girls end up coming down to a battle of ethics - they both have a nerdy high school background, but one of gets this grand plan that she needs to find her husband while she's getting her degree, so that after college she can have her family while her body is still good, and then get her law degree later. So she finds this exclusive website that provides essays on whatever topic you need on a barter basis that you trade in your old "A" papers. And so she is going thru her freshman year partying and becoming this huge socialite AND maintaining, while her best friend is up all night studying and barely maintaining Cs, oblivious to the whole thing. And the cheating one justifies it in that Martin Luther King plagiarized his college thesis because he was spending his time doing something more worthwhile - "what would you rather have? a free country or an honest thesis" or something like that. BAsically saying that its okay to cheat on this bullshit stuff if you already have the smarts, as long as your plan is to do something grander than "The AMerican Short Story 313" or whatever.

"AND maintaining an A average" that is.
