Hmm. I'd rather read the coherent and well-ordered arguments of a person that had a pencil and paper only, rather than copy/pasted mish-mash of the 1337 h4x0r with a laptop and a printer.

Think about this - do you compose an essay different when writing it manually compared to typing it out? Of course you do - writing manually forces you to take your time and think things out a little before you start. There's no going back to insert a new paragraph, or rearranging the order of your arguments at the last second. The skill of writing with cursive may not be useful - but don't dismiss learning to compose an essay "the old fashioned way." Technology is no substitute for substance and coherence... and it's about more than just spell/grammar check.

...dogs are smart enough to fake being only as smart as a 2 year old on tests, so that they can continue their pampered lifestyles and not be put to work on Wall St.

And how do they know that they didn't get the genius or stupid dogs? I didn't read the article, but did they actually take several from each breed and average the results?
