Most of the ppl on AI here are males so I'm sure didn't see this....but check it out, pretty funnny.....

Did you see the Miss Teen America competition where Miss South Carolina was asked "Why do you suppose it is that 1/5 of all Americans cannot find the United States on a map?" If not, you must watch this. If I were the governor of South Carolina, I'd ask her to leave the state.

ZOMG that is the funniest thing.

To be fair though, I have no idea how I would respond to that question. I'd like to think 1/5 of all Americans could find US on the map. I guess I would say because we're dumb?

Maybe she was in that 1/5 group that didn't know.

...oh my GOD! That reminds me of that video where a guy went around and asked Americans questions like "what countries were in the axis"

Replies were: Texas, California, Utah, Colorado, New york.

Then asked "can you name a country that starts with the letter U"

Replies were: Yugoslavia, or i dont know, or there arnt any countries that start with U.


....Oh the United States

germany japan and italy.

My band director last year was asking me and a few other kids who we were fighting against in WW1 and they said stuff like italy germany and japan :(

I don't think it's the teachers' fault cause i learned the same stuff from the same teachers just fine.

Probably ancestry related. Either way, lets stay on topic with the fact that 1/5 Americans are dumb. Haha. :)
