Introduction: Suggestions for Achieving a Failing Grade on the "DIY on the Internet" Assignment

instructions for assignment: Create a DIY project for the web. Use images and text (instructions) to guide someone in making or doing a project of your design. The project can be an object (useful or not), an activity, or something you believe is worth sharing with the Internet community. If you documented your Reverse Engineering project, you may choose to use this to submit to a DIY web site. You will be graded on clarity and innovation.

This instructable will serve as a set of instructions, featuring images and text, that demonstrates a plethora of ways in which a failing grade on this assignment may be obtained. Further suggestions will be considered for inclusion within this set of instructions.

Step 1: 1: Misplace

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, misplace the assignment guidelines, complete with examples, and delete the electronic mail message that contains an attachment to it, thereby not being aware of what the assignment entails.

Step 2: 2:Distract

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, distract yourself with leisurely activities and put off the commencement of the assignment until the deadline has passed.http://www.tvguide.com/http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipod?cid=OAS-US-KWG-iPodBrandTerms-US

Step 3: 3:Friend

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, request the assistance of a friend in completing the assignment who, consequentially, decides to spend some leisurely time with someone else and does not inform you of the circumstances, leading you to wait until you've become so exasperated that you give up. (This step may coincide with step 2)

Step 4: 4:Break

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, destroy, dismantle, shatter, deface, annihilate, impair or otherwise break your computing device so severely that it no longer functions in a manner consistent with facilitating the completion of the assignment.

Step 5: 5:Injury

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, incur a head injury that dramatically affects your recollection for the utilization of computer technology, thus impairing you from initiating the assignment. (This step may coincide with step 4)

Step 6: 6:Pet

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, posses a house pet with a rather inconvenient habit of destroying, dismantling, shattering, defacing, annihilating, ripping or otherwise eating your assignments and be unable to prevent said pet from destroying, dismantling, shattering, defacing, annihilating, ripping or otherwise eating your materials for this assignment. (This step may coincide with steps 1 & 5)http://www.adoptapet.com/

Step 7: 7:Intoxication

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, become severely intoxicated and allow this impediment to diminish the quality of the assignment so greatly that a passing grade is not earned. (This step may coincide with step 2)https://www.instructables.com/id/ecnonmic_simulus/

Step 8: 8:Apathy

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, become apathetic toward all aspects of life, including this assignment, and allow the deadline to pass, thus entitling you to failing marks for the assignment.

Step 9: 9:Manicure

In order to obtain a failing grade for this assignment, give yourself a manicure so fabulous, your apprehension for chipping, breaking, or otherwise damaging the carefully cared-for fingernails prevents you from completing the assignment. (This may coincide with step 2)https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY_Professional_Looking_Manicures_and_Fingernail_/

This reminds me of an assignment in highschool where I had to write a series of poems, and I made the subject of the poems my hatred of poems and the writing thereof. Also, the pictures are hilarious.

You need to collaborate with those making instructables on how to stay home sick from school. I do see the irony in your FAIL. Nice un-instructable.
