F*ck yeah! I am SO doing that on my 12-page English research paper due in May! Thank you!

DuDE! This is freaking awesome. I'm totally going to use this with some of my english papers. nice find!

nice. kind of hard to believe that it would add that much to a two page paper, but nonetheless i'm going to try it out

I was the king of padding a term paper with margin/font tricks when I was in college. But I never thought of this. Pretty smart.
March 24th, 2007

Does.... does it really add that much? Just from enlarging punctuation? That's friggin *awesome*. It's not just a Size of Our Pennies concept rip, it's educational!

Though on the other hand, now that I've gone into Word and tried it, it's pretty f*cking obvious that the punctuation is a larger font. Undetectable my ass, McBain.

Kindof, but what teacher is actually going to mention to a student that their commas look a little big? And its just the commas. Periods dont look different at all.

not as drastic as you claim, but not bad either. 3.
March 24th, 2007

it just reduces the amount of lines per page.. you can also do this by changing line spacing to 2.5 instead of double spaced

now i dont need to bullsh*t as much to fill in 2 pages for my essay coming up next week. Saved me hours.
March 24th, 2007
(0)
I checked it out. It works pretty well. Only problem I see is that it makes obvious spacing, but it shouln't be a problem if the assignment you are working is suppose to be double spaced or something.
March 24th, 2007
(-1)
F, So.
March 24th, 2007
(0)
Yeah. All it does is increase the spacing between lines because of a bigger font, therefore, detectable. No amount of change like that is going to come undetectably.

5ing this to hope you change it to what I thought it would be when I clicked it since I thought Heather Chandler made this at first before I actually saw what it was =p
March 24th, 2007
(2)
Ya, it can be used as a figure of speech. Ass.
March 24th, 2007
(0)
Yeah, the way this works is that it affects line spacing. When you make the punctuation 16 font in between 12 font type then the line spacing is changed to accomodate the 16. So really it is equivalent to making line spacing like 1.1.

lol @ at people who are at levels of education where expanding papers is more important than contracting them
March 24th, 2007

heh thats a neat trick.. but most people i know in college, myself included, have issues writing too much stuff for the essay, too much information to all get down in the page limit.. but a cute trick nonetheless

Technically that's still linear growth. Not exponential. I'm so glad I've made it to the level where content matters more than length. Writing fluff sucks.

This might work just fine in your middle school or high school, but it's definitely not going ot cut it in college- it's incredibly obvious. Sorry... pretty lame attempt.

God I wish I had known about this in high school. For those of you who are still in it, please use this trick for me. And for all of you bitching bitches, why are you so upset its not like the media doesn't do the same thing. Give SmokinDatBud a break, he used the same song from Size of our Pennies & *Fav!* and gave the same amount of credit. Why not cry about that too? Besides its a ytmnd umm... lets just have some fun and laugh.

does this work the opposite way? Could you shorten papers using this? Much harder to get shorter then long.

Funny, someone in my class told me to do the same thing about a week ago. Of course, it's a f*cking 1-2 page essay, so it's not like I can't knock that out in a half-hour. Besides, changing the font size of certain characters changes the leading of the text. The larger your period font is compared to the regular font, a line without a period will make it easy to spot. I know if I was a teacher, and I saw it, I'd call you out.

Uhhhhh, if you are trying to take up space for a paper due in college and your prof. falls for this they're stupid. They usually check the margin sizes, distance between lines, etc.

f*cking failure. It's like making the spacing from double spaced (2) to something like 2.3 spaced. I could just change the spacing.

March 24th, 2007

Well, it's noticeable if someone is actually looking over it. The spacing is going to look differently than other people's papers. Plus, most of the teachers I know grade on content, not length...
(0)
Dude, what the f*ck crap *ss college do you go to that professors wouldn't notice this? Any prof worth their salt will see the glaringly huge punctuation marks. Some will be smart enough to do a search for particular font sizes. Not to mention, your "trick" ends up putting so few words a page that it just flat out makes the thing look suspicious. In short, you fail. Also, downvoted for crying about downvoting.
(0)
Oh, and by the way -- "college students shouldn't be on YTMND"? Why the f*ck do you think there's so many 80s YTMNDs (Back to the Future, Gem, etc)? If anything, 20-somethings outnumber the kids here 5 to 1.

Another trick: (make sure you did NOT save) after you have about 2 pages, press Alt+F4, and it will instanty use logi-tec to scan your document for info, and use logic to write another 5 pages on the same topic! (Realy don't do this)

I'd like to point out to the people saying "just increase the margins or double space" that these things are easily detectable if the paper is turned in electronically. This is more subtle and hides from a simple properties check.
