And now for something completely different

I have nothing constructive to say, but Small and Wang have been up for a week now.

Apropos of nothing:

We don’t read so good.


Snoopy gets deep.


Physics is easier than football. Google image search “BCS explained” and this is the first hit you get.

    I guess it’s a good thing that our reading level is high school — likely means the occasional physics post is explained clearly.

    If it’s any comfort, today’s CNN, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and USA Today websites also get a High School rating. Today’s New York Times gets Junior High School. Could it be that we express ourselves too well to write for the Gray Lady?

    I can only assume that written at a high school level means that it could be understood by high schoolers rather than it was written the way a high schooler would write it. Anybody know how exactly this is measured?

    I plugged in the address of a blog about the New York Times crossword, and guess what it returned? High school. I’m kind of wondering if there’s a certain percentage of words that must be Latin before it’ll give you “college”.

    I found the link on a blog that was almost entirely images, with very little writing. That was Genius, apparently. Anthropomorphizing a little, maybe it’s looking for aesthetically pleasing ad copy?
