Do You Need Grad School to Read This Blog?
According to the Gunning-Fox index algorithm, it would take at least 17 years of formal education to understand the content of this blog. I'm taking that with a grain of salt, as I've only had 15 1/2 years myself (I finished college a semester early because of Advanced Placement exam credits).
I do assume a fairly intelligent audience, someone who could read & understand say an article from The New York Times. Most of the people in my social circle IRL are college graduates and a good portion do have advanced degrees, but I also know some very bright individuals who did not follow the conventional educational path.
