Pity your local teaching assistant

Chris Bray:
My longstanding suspicion was confirmed last week: Twenty percent of all known undergraduates complete their written coursework by typing up a summary of whatever text you give them, taking it all as equally weighted fact and never noticing especially much what it says.

I never thought they'd actually do it with Mein Kampf. But oh my god, they most certainly did.

What about those idiots who write book reports based on Amazon reader comments because they are too lazy to read and too cheap to buy the Coles notes?
