Doesn't put me to sleep -- Jay Mathews
I thought D-Ed Reckoning was you twittering, Ken. Wrong! Maybe when I watch the Simpson DVDs I'll get smarter, d'ya think?Compared to D-Ed Reck, will your Twittering be: Higher Order Lower OrderSame OrderNo OrderAll of the AboveNone of the AboveSelect one, and explain the reasons for your selection. (This question was constructed consistent with Item Response Theory. Your response will permit determining if you are "Below Basic," "At Basic" "Proficient" or "Above Proficient" on an ungrounded statistical scale.)
That's what I thought too. You have to change with the times.Then when you're done with the Simpsons you can graduate to Futurama.Lower order since the 160-odd character constraint is too limited for someone as long-winded as me.
140 characters - I commented to someone today that it's great fun to work within those constraints. Synonyms, brevity, syntax shifts, all sorts of neat stuff comes into play.
"Lower order since the 160-odd character constraint is too limited for someone as long-winded as me."OK. That puts you at "Basic." DI needed. And, lucky you! You get it from an expert:"it's great fun to work within those constraints. Synonyms, brevity, syntax shifts, all sorts of neat stuff comes into play."Tappa, tappa, tappa. Get with your higher order thinking skills!If you need further instruction, rewatch some Futurama. (I've never even heard of Futurama, so that puts me "Below Basic." It's hard to stay Proficient these days. And "above Proficient" only exists in the dreams of Item Response Theory Practitioners and all those who swallow the standardized test reports that are generated by the theory.) A little Robet Browning might help both of us:"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?"And:“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, 'A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!'”And:“How sad and bad and mad it was - / But then, how it was sweet!”
