Things I've learned this Week

  1. "We Built this City" is worse than you remember it.
  2. As early as 1974, and likely earlier, the National Council of Teachers of English were deeply concerned about the fairness of standardized testing. It seems we didn't learn much from them.
  3. David Copperfield is lobbying Congress to recognize magic as an art, and they're wasting time listening.
  4. Grace Slick hates "We Built this City."
  5. You can blow on the end of a swimming noodle and spray water out and it's amazing.
  6. There's a grave digging contest in Budapest.
