If a Snooki leaves the station travelling 35 miles per hour…

So have you already taken the SAT? If you have then you probably saw the dreaded pop-culture essay question about Reality TV that had many kids scratching their heads….

Here is the actual question:

 “Reality-television programs, which feature real people engaged in real activities rather than professional actors performing scripted scenes, are increasingly popular. These shows depict ordinary people competing in everything from singing and dancing to losing weight, or just living their everyday lives. Most people believe that the reality these shows portray is authentic, but they are being misled. How authentic can these shows be when producers design challenges for the participants and then editors alter filmed scenes?

What do you think?  Is there enough room in your brain for the biggest loser and geometry? If you haven’t taken the SAT yet, stop by the library for some test prep in book form or get some interactive help right on your computer..after you have DVR’d all your shows, of course.

Ummmm, that seems more like a diatribe than a writing prompt.
