For the benefit of people outside the United States, for whom these grading
arcana are entirely opaque, could someone please briefly explain what SATs
are [scholastic aptitudes tests?], and the range of scores?

Lyle is surely correct about memes, which seem to me a bit like streams -
easier to map after the water has flowed down through, as well as cutting
into, the vagaries of the landscape.
