Student figures out genius way to trick herself into working

A student has figured out an ingenious way to trick herself into getting some damn work done.

A history student from Bath was attempting to read a paper titled "The role of accounting in public expenditure and monetary policy in the first century AD Roman empire" when she realised she could simply write the words "Harry Potter And The" in front of it, and make the paper at least 87% more interesting.

Though it now technically reads "Harry Potter and the the role of accounting in public expenditure and monetary policy in the first century AD Roman empire" it seems to have done the trick.

Several people have contacted the student, who was Miss Universe 2015 89th runner up, informing her that they want to read this new Harry Potter tale / detailed account of expenditure and monetary policy in the Roman Empire.


Adding the sentence "Harry Potter and the" to the beginning of articles is believed to work with just about any title in existence, including bestsellers:

  • Harry Potter and the Working Class Conditions in England by Karl Marx and J.K. Rowling.
  • Harry Potter and The Ego and the Id by Sigmund Freud.
  • Harry Potter and The Interpretation of Dreams, also by Sigmund Freud.
