Sid Was Right, Little Wayne Sucks

This is maybe the most interesting thing I have seen on the Internet in a long while.



That is correct, SAT scores against the most popular music as listed on Facebook. I am still figuring out exactly how they got the info, but from what I can tell this info wouldn't stand up to harsh analytical scrutiny. In any case the information is very interesting. It can also be used to mock people who read The Bible and like Little Wayne. So its got that going for it, which is nice.

But take a little time to check it out, there are some surprises. Like the Book of Mormon is right in the middle of the bell curve, while the Bible rocks the left (or "Dumb") side. Something that surprised me at first was the prevalence of books such as Their Eyes Were Watching God and Fahrenheit 451 over on the left side. After some thought I realized that those books were ones that are mandatory in many schools and would likely be listed as "Favorite Books" by stupid people who felt ignorant that they never read any books that they are not made to read. Which would also explain a book like Lolita chilling on the far right side. If you are unfamiliar with that work it is an erotic novel that tells about a creepy older dude who fucks a 14 year old and blah blah blah. I wasn't too taken with it myself, but it is a classic that is often banned in many high schools due to its "graphic nature". This means that only those who really enjoy reading outside of the mainstream constraints of high school literature classes would ever even pick up the book.

Take a gander and let me know what you think about either chart.
