Oh, The Things One Sees On The Internet…

First, some background: a few months ago, I set up a few free accounts on some freelancing web sites, mostly so I could see what’s out there and maybe, if necessary, pick up some work. Most of the work for people with my skills is, sadly, of the “hey, I’ll pay you money to do my homework for me” variety. Folks offer to pay for entire dissertations. It’s pathetic, honestly, and more than a little frightening.

Sometimes, it is also hilarious, in a lolsob sort of way. Take, for example, this little gem:

About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
