🌠The Seemingly Impossible Art of Not Being Stupid?

Ever wake up one morning with a toothache that defies the universe and say to yourself:

“Jeepers self, if only I could wave a magic wand and fix this pain and agony so I don’t feel like 473 nails are being hammered into my gum” ?

If so, I feel your pain. Oh I *so* do.

And you know, the smart thing to do in such a case is to:

* Gargle with salt water if you’re a normal human being

* Gargle with cayenne pepper if you’re an insane human being (raises hand)

* Apply antibiotics via medicine.

Ideally, your pain should diminish after a day or so, which is way quicker than it would if you up and decided to plagiarize content online.

I was reminded of this by reading this stellar article:


I mean… ummm… duh?

The Oxford dictionary defines plagiarism like so:

“the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own.”

And you know… it boggles the mind that some people actually have questions about what IS plagiarism and what is NOT.


Be that as it may, the article does cover some interesting, mainly on facts vs opinions.

And who could miss:

Anyways, plagiarism by itself could make for a great 1 2 3 cheatsheet. You could structure it like so:

Step 1.) Don’t be stupid.

Step 2.) See step 1.

Step 3.) Commit to yourself that anything you write about… you’ll include direct links to the original content, mention the author, and never take credit for stuff you didn’t make yourself.

Resources for the above include:




and of course, listen to the main rule of success by Tom Lehner:


“I am never forget the day I first meet the great

Lobachevsky.In one word he told me secret of success in
mathematics: Plagiarize!


Let no one else’s work evade your eyes

Remember why the good Lord made your eyes

So don’t shade your eyes

But plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize –

Only be sure always to call it please ‘research'”

Your takeaway?

Be smart. And believe in yourself enough to make your own content shine.
