I have yet to post an actual problem in this thread. Yeah, there was that thing last weekend, but as I admitted, looking back on it, that was just me being really angry at the time. As I am prone to do. Humans being emotional beings and all.So your life only revolves around your white-people-problems with your friends?
I never asked for your cynical opinion. There is an English saying, and I'm sure a Spanish equivalent, that says "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Learn it.Not as boring as your social life.
At least you could have some moral struggle. But again, no respect for you anymore.
I don't think you read the bottom when I said "I have no regrets."
Y'know what went through my head as I realized my brain had refused me access to all I had studied for, most likely due to anxiety issues, depression, and constant stress? That I didn't want to screw up as bad as I did on that last quiz, causing me MORE anxiety, depression, and stress.
The moral of struggle whether to cheat or not went out the window at that point.
Worrying about what people think about me, and the amount of respect lost through act of desperation and frustration is is non-existent.
Clear the air enough?
Yes, if you are Machiavelli its right, you did what you had to do, but you also did what was morally wrong.
What I did was for me. It wasn't about anybody else, nobody else came to my mind.
This was an internal problem, and I solved it the most efficient way I could. Cheating is not killing, I didn't fill my car with extra NOS and twin turbo intakes so that I could beat out the dad of a kid with cancer in a race so that I could take the prize money for myself when he was going to use it for his child's treatments.
Morals are flexible, and vary with the individual and situation.
Now while you may be right that cheating is wrong. What would be even worse would be failing the class, having to retake it in the next semester, effectively cheating my mother, whom helped me get into the school I'm in, helps me with my financial aid, gives me a roof and food, and supports me.
I'd rather cheat the test and make it through than cheat my mother's efforts. And I did talk to her about what I did.
You do what you have to do. I don't feel morally conflicted. So why are you trying to make me feel so?
I don't get you sometimes, Clock.
@Tay: Well we had transferred right from the renaissance to the baroque period, and went over a bunch of stuff over the course of about a week and a half. We were given a minute to identify the artist, title, date, and location for 10 pieces. We were then given 6 minutes to write a paragraph or two on what a piece is about, including artist, title, date, and location.
Then there were two compare and contrast questions, which we also had to identify first. Then came vocabulary questions, about 8 of those. And an extra question, which I think I aced.
