Writing Skills

I'd like to find a corpus of writing from children in a non-self-selected sample (e.g. handwritten letters to the president from everyone in the same teacher's 7th grade class every year)--and score the kids today versus the kids 20 years ago on various objective measures of writing quality. I've heard the idea that exposure to all this amateur peer practice is hurting us, but I'd bet on the generation that conducts the bulk of their social lives via the written word over the generation that occasionally wrote book reports and letters to grandma once a year, any day.

by Jay Hathaway

by Sarah Zhang on Gizmodo, shared by Lacey Donohue to Gawker

How NYC Would Respond to an Actual Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Attack

It's been 30 years since the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man first squished through Manhattan. With Ghostbusters returning to theaters tomorrow for an anniversary run, we thought it appropriate to consider a very serious question: How would New York City actually fight an evil god in the form of a marshmallow man? Stickiness and spoilers ensue.

Do we live in a 2-D hologram? New Fermilab experiment will test the nature of the universe

V

Finally! A new source of Planck-scale factoids.

I'm still waiting for the article that begins, "Scientists attempt to prove universe exists as 2D image on surface of bubble by popping the bubble." "We're confident about the safety of this experiment because, in theory, it would have already retroactively destroyed universal history."

A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe – including whether we live in a hologram.

Dumbass Manages to Set Himself on Fire During Ice Bucket Challenge

by Jay Hathaway

If you had to imagine the platonic form of a failed ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, it would probably involve a guy in camo cargo pants and an American flag vest, waving an even bigger confederate flag, who sets his own hair on fire.
