There Will Be A Test

Well this is disconcerting. I thought we were still in practice semesters, but it turns out, according to author John Green, there is a test. In fact, if I understand what he’s saying, we’re already taking it.

The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged and productive citizen of the world and it will take place in place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions that when taken together make your life yours. And everything, everything will be on it.

Well thanks for the heads up. I don’t have a #2 pencil. I did, however, remember to pack a lunch.

Here you can watch John debunk 10 common misconceptions about life, the universe, and everything. It’s funny!
