Americans - gotta love 'em

"I couldn't find London on a map if they didn't have the names of the countries. I swear to God. I don't know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That's the closest thing I know to London. He's black, so I'm sure he's not from London. I'm sure that's a coincidental name."

I, being an American, fully agree that this is representative of the American public's knowledge of geography outside of the USA. Indeed, few can even identify all 50 states in a USA map without labels.

Re: Americans - gotta love 'em

So what is this High School Graduation thing all about?

Is it knowing your alphabet and being able to count to ten?

I thought they were trying to build a knowledge based economy over there!

Re: Americans - gotta love 'em

Well, Florida has probably got an excuse.

I guess most of the ones that went to school got eaten by Alligators.
