Drama in Statics

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 15 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

There was an interesting announcement in Statics today:
All homework assignments have changed.

Why? People are cheating. I know that last semester, there was a Facebook group that posted links to JPEG images of the homework assignments.Students could download the images , print them on to E2 paper, write their name and section on the top and then turn it in. There are also sites, Such as Cramster. com that provide solutions. I will admit that I have used such sites, but only as a tool to help me understand the material.

On the plus side, all the assignments are now posted online. This will make it easier to complete my work on my Tablet!

Update: Jens’ teacher said that there was some sort of CD going around with the answers on it.

  1. How come I couldn’t see your last couple of posts until just now? I’d had that beer and sex one at the top of the list for several days now.

  2. I start a few posts everyday and try to finish them in the moment. If I’m busy, I may have to save the draft and work on it later. When I do finish it, the time stamp is from when I started the post…which is what you are noticing.

  3. Or you are were really just slacking until now and posted all three at the same time, and editted the date stamps to make it look like you don’t have a few day gap between posting. 😛 Tis possible.

  4. Oh, the world will know. It’ll know you’re a fraud and a cheat and a liar when I tell it. That’s right, I’m going public with this little scandal. And then you’re going down, Ferguson. You’ll never survive a scandal of this magnitude. And when you’re lying flat on your back wondering “How did this happen to me?” I’m going to be right there to look down at you from my perch of outrageous popularity (for breaking the story) and do you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to laugh at you. Laugh at your little misfortune. Because I’ve been waiting for this day, just waiting. And now it’s finally come. I knew if I just waited long enough you’d slip up. And now you have, you’ve slipped up big. And I’m not going to let this opportunity pass me by like I did the last one. Oooh, no. Not this time. This time I’m going to make you pay. You’ve been stepping on people like me all your life. Me, the little guy. The guy who you find it convenient to destroy in your quest for glory. But I will not be destroyed. I now have my chance to strike back and the man, show him that the little guy may be down, but he’s not out. Show him what happens when he steps on the little guy for too long. You’ve opened up Pandora’s Box, Ferguson. Prepare to reap the whirlwind.

  5. On line 17, I meant to say “strike back at the man” rather than “strike back and the man”. My apologies.
