This is the most controversial post I have ever written in ten years of blogging. I wrote it because I was very angry at a specific incident.
November 13, at To begin with, college is spelled with an e, not an a, as you spelled it collage. That is an entirely different word that means a piece of art made by attaching pieces of paper, often from articles or magazines, to another sheet of paper. Next, anonymous, such as in your username, is actually spelled a-n-o-n-y-m-o-u-s, rather than anoymos.
I also do not understand how spell check did not catch that, as while collage is a real word in the English language, anoymos is not.

If you get a perfect score on a standardized test of some sort, you do not receive precedence in the ranking over all others with the same score. If that were true, I would be 1st in Michigan as far as 7th-grade ELA scores go, ahead of every single 7th grader in the state!
There are quite clearly ties. How else would they establish first, second, and so on?
I must say, I detest nothing more than liars and tellers of untruths who brag about fake, easy to earn, and redundant accomplishments, or have overinflated egos but nothing to be proud of.
