antisocialworker: Here's the last paragraph in her article:"To those claiming that I am bitter-you bet I am! An underachieving selfish teenager making excuses for her own failures? That too! To those of you disgusted by this, shocked that I take for granted the wonderful gifts I have been afforded, I sayshhhh-"The Real Housewives" is on. "For a 17 year-old, she sounds pretty self-aware.
Car_Ramrod: "Like millions of teenagers out there, I was crying to my mom and she said 'I cannot hear about this any more, just go talk to someone else,' so I called my sister," she said. "I was crying, but she was hysterically laughing, and she said, 'Go write this down.' So I did, and this is what came out of it."...How does that equate to satire?"It's a satire. That's the point. Just like '30 Rock' is a satire, which pokes fun at things that are politically correct. That's what I was trying to do," Weiss told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie.Oh, I get it. She doesn't know what satire is. Makes sense now.
Gyrfalcon: The Muthaship: Gyrfalcon: peasants_are_revolting: An SAT of 2120? When I took it, 1,600 was the highest you could go."It's a joke."Max is 2400 now. There's an essay section now.Interesting. Explains why the little muffin didn't score higher, I guess...her writing skills are dreadful.
Eustacia Vye: In this day and age, as she says, upper middle class white people are indeed being judged on things outside their control, just like ethnic and cultural minorities have been for, like, ever. Boo hoo. The shoe is on the other foot, so to speak.
LordOfThePings: Yogimus: Debeo Summa Credo: "It was satire""It was my wife typing""I was in the marine core""the cheese stands alone""I want to spend more time with my family""I was undercover for a story on prostitution""It's a slippery slope""I swear to God she was dead when I got here""My junk is stuck in the slats of my chair""She said she was 18.""I was just giving that prostitute a ride, officer..""I have a wide stance.""I never inhaled""I was hiking the Appalachian Trail."
jvl: But it was an attempt to be funny. If you didn't get that, you might just be dumber than a rock.
Lusiphur: In order to be a satire, it would need to be satirizing something. So she's either satirizing herself and her own generation, or she's satirizing the admissions process. The first is suspect because most people of her generation don't feel the need to go on long, bitter rants about affirmative action. In fact, her (and technically my) generation is the most diverse and accepting of diversity ever. If she's satirizing the admissions process, it would seem to me to have been far more effective if done from the perspective of an admissions officer.I just don't buy the "satire" bit. It sounds more like someone who really sucks at life and is bitter about it, but threw in a line or two at the end to give herself plausible deniability if it went the wrong way.
