coded 2

Juggling school life and regular life isn’t always easy. Sometimes you’ve got a million things to do and deadlines are coming down on you hard and fast, and you just need that little bit of extra time to finish up your paper. If you are this sneaky Japanese student, though, you’ve found a way to make technology seemingly going wrong make everything all right.

According to this tweet from @421g0, if you are lucky enough to be able to submit your assignments in digital form, there is an easy way to “cheat the system” in order to earn yourself a bit of extra time.

All you have to do is send a “corrupted” file to your teacher, and he probably won’t suspect any foul play. Most likely he will simply ask for the file to be sent over again. Before that request comes, you can use the time to finish the assignment! This gobbledygook will make your teacher think something wrong happened on their end, so they will never suspect that it was sent like that on purpose, right?

▼ “Hmm, I don’t think this is what Kant meant in his Critique of Pure Reason…I’ll just have him send it again.”

The jury is still out on whether or not this will fool anyone. Most commenters were wondering if they could use this sort of trick successfully.

“Is this still a valid technique?
“I wonder if they’d allow this for a handwritten report.”
“If you send it to a teacher who understands code, it will come back all deciphered!”
“It’s the assignment savior!”

RocketNews24 definitely doesn’t condone cheating, but if you plan on trying this, you probably don’t want to use it more than once per teacher. If it happens too often (more than once), this excuse will turn out to be as valid as, “My dog ate my homework.”
