The New and Improved SAT

In light of the College Board’s recent changes to the SAT, some humorous alternative vocabulary questions: http://nyr.kr/RpVqeO

Directions: Match the italicized slanty word or phrase with its meaning.

1. Mike, like, likes Emily, but not like that. The best meaning of “like” is:

a) you know
b) um
c) similar to
d) derives pleasure from
e) lolz

A crown for a new king who couldn’t be stopped

He was shoved out. He could have dived. He could have taken the foul and slowed the game down. Instead, he stayed on his feet, knowing more than anyone that nothing could stop him. Gareth Bale stepped up, and now there are no doubts. Madrid will remember this one legendary run for years to come. [Art by Kendall Henderson. Words by Eric]

Yuichi Takasaka’s lunar eclipse photo is better than your lunar eclipse photo.
Taken over Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta. See those other specks chasing the Moon? Those aren’t lens flares, they’re fellow celestial bodies including Mars, Jupiter, and the star Spica.

Can’t reblog this enough

It’s fucking sad that Glee has their priorities straighter than the educational system.

Really? Really.

First of all: didn’t you learn how to balance a checkbook when you learned basic arithmetic? Add up all your expenses. Subtract it from how much money you have. There, your checkbook is balanced. Let’s move on.

Second of all: how well do you think society would run without engineers and chemists and accountants and physicists? And bankers and economists and statisticians and computer programmers? And surgeons and data analysts and the people who keep satellites up in the air? And everyone else with a job that requires an understanding of numbers beyond an eighth grade level? Does that sound like a fun society to live in? Because to me, that sounds like the Dark Ages.

"But I don’t want to do any of those things!"

1. Good for you. Truly. I hope you find your math-free path through life that gives you fulfillment and happiness. But then we need other people to do those things, and when do you propose they learn about numbers? College? By college, they need to be diving into calculus at least if they want to enter the workforce before they’re thirty. If your goal is a system of education which provides the greatest benefit to society - and isn’t that the role of the education system? - it is obviously better to just teach everyone intermediate math, so that those with an interest in pursuing it later actually, you know, have the background to do so.

2. You don’t want to do those things now. But you’re in friggin high school! No offense, but you have no idea what you’re going to end up wanting to do with your life. But because you don’t like math class now, before the part of your brain that understands delayed gratification has even finished developing, you want the education system to deprive you of the groundwork you need to work in a field that uses math forever? And it may very well be forever: later on in life, you’re going to need to have a job, you’re going to be making money, you might have a family, you will have all kinds of drains on your time, finances, and mental energy. This is the best time of your entire life to learn a new subject. All society wants from you is for you to learn new subjects.

And maybe get laid. Teenagers face a lot of weird pressure. But that’s neither here nor there.

In short: I don’t watch Glee and I don’t know who this hoodie-wearing little punk is, but if he were my student, I’d tell him to shut his mouth and get his head out of his ass, because (1) bitching about “imaginary” numbers is not clever, and (2) if he turned his attention away from his self-initiated colonoscopy and towards the blackboard, he might just learn something “useful.”

"If I were just your average 23-year-old girl, and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense. I am just not OK with it. It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it."

Watch: Haunting video details mass genocide you weren’t even aware of

Writer and commentator Rachel Rostad recently took the Internet to the task when she posted a video about mass killings in Europe. “What if I told you that in Europe, a group of Christians are systematically exterminating Muslims?” she asks in the video. “Are you surprised you didn’t know about this? I mean it’s Europe, it’s civilized — how could people actually be doing this to each other? How could we not know that this is happening?”
