How Smart is Your LJ?  
Google has unveiled a new toy in their Advanced Search section that lets you filter your search results by "reading level." What's the reading level of your LJ?

Go to Google's Advanced Search, change 'Reading level' to 'annotate results with reading level', enter your LJ or website address in 'Search within a site or domain' and click search. Screencap and post. (Obviously, this only captures unlocked posts.)

I don't know where my swank Ivy League education went, but clearly it did not go to my livejournal.

For the record, I am much less literate than the overall livejournal results:

If this new google toy isn't meme'd all over LJ by the end of the day, I'll be shocked.

THAT IS SO ODD! For some reason your LJ is not indexed on teh google?? POSSIBLY YOU DO NOT EXIST!

I think there might be a setting in LJ about whether or not you want you blog to be indexed by search engines? It's in "Account Settings" or something. I of course want to be indexed by search engines because I'm a famewhore, but perhaps you made a different selection?

Oh dear settings failed. I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING IN SETTING. *flails* I am clearly not excepted by the world. good times lol.

IDK! I think none of them?? There's one that's "reduce search engine inclusion" or something and that one should be unchecked.

Hmmm. I got 100% intermediate. I am apparently as average as the day is long. On the other hand, it only returned 327 results, so I question its sample size.
Little Red: sga - shep involved being memylittleredgirl on December 16th, 2010 10:04 pm (UTC)
Hey, those of us who are below average admire your averagicity!

I have no clue how they pull the sample or analyze the readability, so I just have to compare myself against livejournal.com on the whole to determine that I insufficiently smart. Or plain-spoken! YEAH! Keepin' it real with the down-home folk!

I would! Except I am not American-born! And there are inappropriate photos of me on the internet from college!

But I do have a strange appreciation for Sarah Palin's Alaska, so does that make up for it?

Except I am not American-born!

Damn those Founders and their Constitution!

(Is your icon an indication as to where you were born?)

And there are inappropriate photos of me on the internet from college!

Heh. With Facebook et. al., I have a feeling that is going to be more the norm than not in the next couple of decades...

But I do have a strange appreciation for Sarah Palin's Alaska, so does that make up for it?

Hmmm. Might have to write your Congressperson. (I kind of want to watch that show, because Alaska is awesome!!, but her voice makes me want to kill small animals. I am torn.)
Little Red: trek - ani headdesk - rightoniconsmylittleredgirl on December 17th, 2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
Yup! I was a wee Canadian once. :) I root for them in the Olympics.

You know, Sarah Palin's Alaska is WEIRD, and you kind of come away from it... liking her. Or tolerating her, at least. Not as a politician, but as a relateable and kind of dorky star of a family reality show, like you wouldn't hate her if you ran into her sometimes in the supermarket. I still don't want her anywhere near politics and could do without the political elements of the show (although I came in expecting that there would be lots of liberal-bashing, so I can kind of ignore that). Piper Palin is ridiculously adorable. They do kill an awful lot of animals on that show, so if her voice pushed you over the edge, you'd fit right in.

You need MORE BIG WORDS. Consider, your comments might be bringing you down! Make everyone use big words! The utilitarian patriarchal contraindicative deconstructions of post-humanitarian juxtaposition for teh win!

Also I apparently did not index my posts, thus get 0%, but my readability scores usually mean my fics can be understood by 10 year olds.
Little Red: make pr0n not warmylittleredgirl on December 16th, 2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
Fortunately, they use a whole different metric to determine if your fics should be read by 10 year olds!

Hmm. I think you might be right about the comments since they're 80% *hugs* or I KNOW RIGHT or SPARKYYYYY!

Not to mention I'm not sure smut peddling is really the place for intellectualism? Just sayin'.

Yeah I recently wrote a stripper fic for someone, and it said third graders could read it. They might be able to, but I definitely wouldn't recommend they do so!
Little Red: sga - shep involved being memylittleredgirl on December 17th, 2010 07:28 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm not really sure I'd want to read porn by James Joyce. Having to grab a dictionary in the middle would kind of break up the flow.

I'm sure I'd sit there thinking, "Is this sex or am I not comprehending his main character's walk by the ocean?" Oh wait, I actually did that in Ulysses, and it was just a walk by the ocean.

HMM. I too am like natushka and DO NOT EXIST.

We've both check marked the little box that shows our journals may contain adult content, so perhaps we are not allowed in the filter because we could be damaging to others?

I am not indexed w/google, and thus, I have no results. But I imagine it would be v vv basic.

It's because we are bringing our porn to the MASSES.

YOU SPEAK TRUTH. Porn must be easy to read, after all.

SRSLY! What is up with Google? It is failing us, this must be amended! Stat! Now how to do that? Maybe I have too many locked entries. I went on a locking rampage last year and now Google thinks I don't exist. :(

I'm also one of the non-existing people... Kinda sucks :^p

Given that it's the holidays and so close, I would go ahead and buy now to make sure you can even get a ticket and because otherwise it will be less than a week away.

I'm flying on the 25th too - it's usually a nice day to fly!
