Printer Mixup: Student Hands in 3D Essay
The new age of technology has not been easy for everyone. Some folks are paranoid about hackers getting into their NSFW “misc. stuff ” folder, while others only like how they look on their front-facing camera in Snapchat.
For third-year nerd Ella Robinson, new tech has created just as many problems as it has solved. In a scramble, Robinson accidentally printed her History of Existence essay using her state-of-the-art 3D printer.
“Honestly, I was in such a rush to get back to my League game that as soon as I finished the paper, I couldn’t hold it in any longer and control+p’ed,” Ella revealed. “Two and a half hours later, my essay was printed. I didn’t think twice before dropping it off.”
TA Henry Balfour was shocked to receive the piece that somehow cost more than his rent. “It’s kinda cool I guess, but also not, because I have no idea how to grade it,” Balfour said. “I think I’ll just keep it in the corner of my affordable apartment and tell the student I never received a submission. It’s worked for me before.”
As it turns out, Robinson need no longer worry about 3D printer mixups. Following this initial mishap, she accidentally photocopied a three-dimensional replica of her entire ass, prompting her to dispose of her $18,000 printer. Robinson will be returning to old-fashioned 2D printing once she makes enough money back by selling her accidental ass art as furniture on Etsy.
