Are You Intellectually Clean?
Well, brain doping continues to be an issue, long after the buzz of April Fools Day is over. Now comes what I think must be a spoof of some kind: a site where people can make an "Academic Oath" saying they are clean by putting the following on their CV or WebSite:
For the honour of humanity and the integrity of the academy, I declare I have not, nor ever will, use any drug for an intellectual advantage. See, www.academicoath.com
This reminds me a bit of the PRISM spoof "PISD" but I am not sure if Academic Oath is really fake.
