The student hack that buys you added time to finish assignments
If you’re a student of any age, you’ll know there’s nothing worse than having to do some actual work. The insistence of your lecturers and professors to give you assignments and dissertations to do is an annoyance that almost ruins the experience of being a student.
Then there’s the deadlines. Not only do they want you to read, research, think about and write stuff, they also want it done by a certain date! The bastards. Of course, we all know that real life tends to get in the way and the final few hours before a deadline are usually spent desperately trying to meet your word-count while shovelling handfuls of instant coffee granules down your neck hole.
Well now you can buy yourself a few extra few vital days by visiting corrupted-files.com and purchasing a dodgy file from them. Then just rename it to ‘my important assignment’ or something, email it to your educational overlord and wait for the reply email (usually a few days later) asking you to resend it. By which time you’ve comfortably finished the real assignment at a leisurely pace.
Of course, they’re selling the files at $3.95 each, and though it isn’t much to pay in order to guarantee a cheeky deadline extension, surely there’s a way you could do it for free. We’re a bit stumped – some research has shown that a few half-baked methods exist but no one seems to have a tried and trusted method for deliberately corrupting a file. Do any of you know how it can be done AND look convincing? There’s a jpeg of a pint in it for the winner.
