Things were downright complicated when I was a student, but a bit of applied creativity could work wonders: judiciously-chosen margins, innovating page-numbering (nobody ever reads page 6), and careful choice of fonts (the replaceable Selectric ball was truly a godsend) could yield a ten-page paper from a thousand words or less.
Today, you just turn in a file that won’t open:
File Destructor … is a tool that should only be used for emergencies. Basically, it’s a tool that creates a fake file that you can send to your teachers. You can choose the extension as well as the size of the file, and when your professor can’t open the file up, you can just blame it on your computer. Of course, many teachers are starting to not accept these excuses, so be careful when using this.
Especially since you can’t claim that your robot dog ate your homework.
