    You’re only cheating yourself, just get a job rather than dicking around in school if you’re doing this.

      This is innovation, and problem solving the small stuff is a very important skill in the modern day work environment.

      Do I wasn’t to hand calculate an entire statistical analysis, no. I use excell.

      It doesn’t make the work any more or less valid. If you can Google something in under a minute, don’t bother spending a tonne of time trying to remember it.

        Yeah this teaches some incredibly valuable skills like creative problem solving, how to bend rules for your own benefit and how to use tech to be cool as fuck.

            This person is a lot more prepared for the real world than all the other students who did the assignment by hand.

              Which is why I said they should just go out and get a job rather than pretending to get a a broad education.

              It’s an expensive waste of time, like getting a gym membership and posing next to the machines.

        And never learn to do anything independently or understand what it is you are doing, or even know anything off hand. That way when Google censors you and witholds vital information in an emergency situation, you are totally unprepared for it and come to harm.

      That is way too easily said. I used a lot of tactics like these to get through high school for subjects I will never care about. Now I am in college and able to do a job I love.
