A Brief Rant About Height Fraud in the NBA


The guy on the left is listed at 6'1" (and is likely closer to 6'0"). The guy on the right is listed at 6'3".

I know that I am pretty much the only person who thinks about stuff like this, but I'm going to rant about it anyways: how the heck does the NBA get away with so much height fraud?!

In a sport where so much depends upon height, you'd think that they'd get their numbers straight. But no. It's entirely the opposite.

Standardized Testing Gets A Failing Grade


Is it just me or is Last Week Tonight already better than The Daily Show?

Ok, so that's a bit of an overly dramatic title. But it is semi-creative so it stays...for now.

Anyways, I just now watched John Oliver's video lambasting standardized testing and wanted to chime in and say that I couldn't agree more.

He goes over a lot of good points in his piece, so I'll touch upon a subject that he wasn't really able to elaborate on: standardized testing at the college level.
