After availing myself of this little blog widget, I've discovered the level of education one needs to read my blog:

cash advance

High school? High school? Is that it? I use words like "amorphous" and "paroxysm"! True, I also use words like "porno" and "GAAAAAAAH!", but surely they're not shaving that many IQ points off my readership?

As a test, I also ran the URLs of some other blogs. An9ie and Laziest Girl join me here in High School. Emawkc, 2Barriff and Phaedrus have become College boys, presumably because their blogs are all about drunken partying. A couple of others who will remain nameless are back in elementary school, but we can blame this on the fact that they have small children - nothing sucks the higher language skills out of your life like a toddler.

Mind you, this same program also insists that you only need an elementary school education to appreciate James Lileks, and a mere Junior High education to understand the maths-based humour of xkcd. So I begin to suspect that this whole program is just a ruse to pit blogger against blogger and bring devastation to the internet.

Like it needs it.

So I shouldn't be pleased about being of High School level? Frankly I'm just glad that I haven't slid entirely off the bottom of the scale.

Blows raspberry... just shows how mature I am. No wonder I'm elementary.

I'd try to think of something suitably clever to say, but I'm late for a kegger.

Apparently James Joyce's Ulysses (courtesy Project Gutenberg) is 'Elementary Level'. Wow, education has improved.

I think my college level rating must stem from my lack of turning up to post or something.

Not unlike my college career, really.

High school? HIGH SCHOOL? It had better be some kind of Mensa-sponsored school for the gifted, I can tell you that.

Perhaps I should start swearing more ...
