    Its pretty likely that you're busted. It isn't hard for a teacher to recognize when someone's work isn't their own. From there, its just a matter of looking at previous work from previous students if its an identical assignment. And this assignment seems to be the sort of thing that is unique to a particular teacher. Moreover, if your friend was at all clever, he/she would have made an impression and it's even likely that the teacher recognized the work right away.

    Truth be told, you're already in trouble. You've decided that you place a higher priority on being lazy than you do on putting in effort and improving yourself... on learning and being authentic as a man.

    Like I said, yes... You're already in trouble. The only thing really in your favor is that you're still young and you still have time to turn things around.

    It sounds like winwinfreddy is in high school, too. So this is also in your favor: best to learn the lesson of don't plagiarize before going on to college.

    I've seen college students fail entire classes for lifting a few lines from wikipedia.

    Professors and high school teachers can google. It doesn't take much to sort out when the work isn't your own. I often wonder, however, how many "A's" I've received on a book review I wrote for Dancing Skeletons. Go to google and put "dancing skeletons review" in without the quotes and check the results. Sometimes Terri Hall's published review beats mine, but a lot of times the review I put on my blog wins. It even has references.

    Although, I did include two intentional errors to make it more obvious to a professor who googles it. :-)

    Still, this article along with my Howler Monkey series, gets more hits than any other on my blog.
