At what point does bullshit become knowledge? I often find myself writing essays for classes and completely BSing them. It's not that I make up information, but that I just expand on things logically and make it pretty so that the teacher is impressed. Of course, I feel as though I've pulled one over on the professor and am ashamed, but later get the paper back and realize that it's really decent. I'll even read my classmates papers and find mine to be better written with a higher grade. It even extends to the point that I realize that I know the material. What happens in the inbetween stages that brings us from bullshitting to actually comprehending the material?
