Free enterprise - 'ya gotta love it! Where there's a need, and a buck to be made, you can be sure some enterprising young rapscallion will step in to fill the void quicker than you can say "Adam Smith." Case in point - this new website called corrupted-files.com which sells to students - get this - corrupted files they can send to their professors in lieu of the final assignment. Why would a student want to send a corrupted file? As the website exclaims: "Don't hand in a garbage paper! Hand in a corrupted file instead!"
It will take your professor several hours if not days to notice your file is "unfortunately" corrupted. Use the time this website just bought you wisely and finish that paper!!!
Right now - it's only $3.95 but you better hurry because the price goes up to $5.95 on June 30. But, really, what's a couple of bucks compared to the extra time you can take to polish your paper. Sheesh!
What brazenness, eh?
