Books that make you dumb.

Books that make you dumb.The results of a Facebook datamining project, which means it’s silly for two reasons. (1) Datamining produces data, which is just a pile of numbers to be used for your own nefarious means, or just be flat-out misinterpreted. (2) Facebook? As a source of data about anything except Scrabulous? Doubtful.

Anyway, here’s the deal. According to this chart, if you read Catch-22 you’ll get better SAT scores than if you read Fight Club. If you want even better SAT scores, read Lolita. The jury is still out on whether watching the movies helps or not.

As they say on the porn sites, “click to enlarge.” Or so I’m told.

    Wow. I can’t believe Little Women was the highest rated of the “Chick Lit” category. I read that when I was like…10? Jesus.
