To cheat or not to cheat...

Hi;

When the great scorer comes to put a check next to your name, he will mark not whether you won or lost but how you played the game.

Can you imagine such an affair? Mankind being graded? On what? His hairstyles, his automobiles, how far he can walk when his fashionable jeans are around his knees? Or maybe, how many piercings he can get through one nostril? Grade him on anything but his merits!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Not to cheat. You are cheating yourself.


Love your enemies and those who persecute you. Forgive others the way God forgives you.

Re: To cheat or not to cheat...

That article makes no sense. You cannot have the right to cheat, because if you have it, then you cannot cheat because you have the right to.

It is good to see the reppie methods spreading from my country to the rest of the world. Soon it will destroy the educational systems everywhere and the whole world will be one homogenous mess of stupid people.
