My high school used A-E. They didn't see the logic in skipping a letter just to go "lawlz F for Phail aren't we clevar!!!1!1"

I think it's to show that you need a C to pass. They changed the grading system about five years ago. I don't know.

Sounds like a plan. Just need to hear the little bastard's thoughts.

It lets up a bit at the end, though.

I can see the logic in skipping D or using D and skipping F. But F for fail is kind of funny if you think about it, and I'm used to that.

I'm sure YLB will see this eventually. He probably won't mind anyway.

How long should these reviews be? Does it matter?

I feel like if you took the four best tracks from the first three R.E.M. albums and put them on one album, not only would it flow well if done correctly, but it would be an absolutely epic album.

Yeah, I could really do without Wendell Gee.

But I think every REM album I have has a weaker second half than first half, with the possible exception of Automatic For The People where the weaker stuff is more in the first half.

I'm cool with doing that, would be interesting to see.

I like doing numbers for ratings, but refuse to use decimals. I don't mind if someone uses .5 or something, but anything else is ridic.

I would emphatically agree with this. It would be one of the greatest albums ever.

I guess I see it too. E and F are both failing grades for us: E means summer school, F means repeat the grade. D and E could have sufficed just as well.

Not sure. It doesn't matter to me. Not so long that it's redundant, but long enough to give you a distinctive look at it.

Is that specific? No.
