exceeding the average is not something to be proud of... you know, considering what average actually is

Really, America? 66% of your eighth-graders are below "proficient" in reading? Even after you factor out Texas that's pretty brutal.

Back when video games didn't have voices you had to read the story.  Now they read it to you.  No wonder kids today can't read.

When I was a kid we didn't even have electricity so we had to play video games by candlelight.

Luxury!  We were so poor we had to beat each each other with sticks.  When we couldn't afford sticks we used rocks.  When we were forced to eat the rocks we beat each other with air.  And dammit we LIKED it!

If you live in Boise there's plenty to do.  Otherwise you're stuck with raping sheep and drinking to forget you're surrounded by Mormons

Wouldn't be surprised if the photographer said "act like you're reading".

Hey, Idaho.
Get rid of the national embarrassment of the color of the turf at Boise State, and we'll pretend to care about what you think again.
Signed,

Oh we dreamed of living in a paper bag in the middle of the road! It would've been a castle to us! We lived in a plastic bag, in the dumpster! And we were lucky if we even manage to fight off the seagulls for a piece of insect.

Dunno. Join the KKK or the many militias that are over there? Smoke meth?

The KKK and/or Nazis are pretty much gone.  The few assholes that are left are all up in the Hayden Lake area up north.  They're as popular as a steaming gorilla turd floating in the punch bowel.  Meth?  Not as much as you might think.

Now militias, they're all over the place.  Don't fark with Idaho.  Had Idaho been a part of the union in the Civil War the war would have been over in 1862 and the state of Texas would be known as Southern Idaho.

Beats the NATIONAL AVERAGE? As in, the US national average?

Considering how many times i've been called a "grammar nazi" for correcting adult persons, on this very website, on the difference between "you're" and "your"... In a country where writing at what used to be a fifth-grade level is now not only a tall order, but to expect it from adult, employed humans is considered nazi-esque...

Yeah. Not an achievement.

Results show about 38 percent of Idaho eight-graders tested proficient or above in reading, topping the national average of 34 percent

That's just a really sad sentence, right there.

No kidding... I tried Diablo 3 the other day - it literally reads every damn thing in the questline.  Man.... Pacman had more words than that game.  High Score, Level 1, etc....

Hey look, all of the states closest to Canada can read.  Interesting.

As a child who tested at a 9th grade reading level in kindergarten, I'm getting a kick.
