The more common method of a last ditch effort to avoid a final examination is the good old fire alarm. Get one of your friends to pull it or something. I dunno, I've never actually done it but there were several during my college years.
Well, I guess that doesn't cause enough chaos for some people. This person decided to send bomb threats to Harvard officials to avoid his final exam.
That final exam can NOT have been worse that what he is going through right now.
Reminds me of the time in ninth grade Spanish class. I didn't quite feel prepared for a test and I wrote some conjugations on the desk. The test had barely gotten started and I totally got caught. The teacher told me to stop and to come back later to take the test. She would knock off a whole grade as punishment.
I got an A+ on that test. I didn't miss a single quesiton. (It was downgraded to a B+.) And I never cheated on a test again. I guess I should thank that teacher for helping me learn a valuable lesson when the consequences weren't so high. Thank you Mrs. Brown!
