Today's 33

Glenn Greenwald's "Collapsing empire watch":
Out of 33 nations measured by the OECD, the U.S. ranks 27th for student math literacy and 22nd for student science literacy. In 2009, the World Economic Forum ranked 133 nations in terms of "soundness" of their banks, and the U.S. was ranked in 108th place, just behind Tanzania and just ahead of Venezuela.
To be fair, it's the OECD and the World Economic Forum that pull the 33s here -- certainly interesting that their rankings are based on lists with 33.
