Cute picture to warn the unaware that the G train will, in fact, only be stopping at part of the platform.
The blunt fact is that the SAT has never been a good predictor of academic achievement in college. High school grades adjusted to account for the curriculum and academic programs in the high school from which a student graduates are. The essential mechanism of the SAT, the multiple choice test question, is a bizarre relic of long outdated twentieth century social scientific assumptions and strategies. As every adult recognizes, knowing something or how to do something in real life is never defined by being able to choose a “right” answer from a set of possible answers (some of them intentionally misleading) put forward by faceless test designers who are rarely eminent experts. No scientist, engineer, writer, psychologist, artist, or physician—and certainly no scholar, and therefore no serious university faculty member—pursues his or her vocation by getting right answers from a set of prescribed alternatives that trivialize complexity and ambiguity.

I really want to get back to writing more, in large part because I need to expend large amounts of time analyzing the genius of these movies.
Bruce Campbell and Sarah York in ‘The Evil Dead' (1981)
I’m just here watching this masterpiece of modern cinema. (It’s OK, I already knew you wished you were doing the same.)
[Melville] also shows that…innocence is not safe in a civilization like ours, where a man must practice a “ruled undemonstrative distrustfulness” in order to defend himself against traps. This “ruled undemonstrative distrustfulness” is not confined to business men, but exists everywhere. We all exercise it. I know I do, and I should be surprised if you, who are listening to me, didn’t. All we can do (and Melville gives us this hint) is to exercise it consciously, as Captain Vere did. It is unconscious distrustfulness that corrodes the heart and destroys the heart’s insight, and prevents it from saluting goodness.

This goddamned whale. There you are, out there murdering intelligent animals, eating biscuits, squeezing sperm, and then this milky asshole comes and ruins everything. What a dick.
