    Please. There are American adults that dont know why we celebrate the 4th of July.

    Jay Leno asked the question on Jaywalking. I dont care how much they edited it...there were still plenty of people shown that had no idea.

    That. If not, fail.

    And I'm not surprised if many dont...but that doesnt mean they didnt learn it in grammar school or high school.

    In some states it is illegal to not answer a question about the Iberian Pen when asked by the police...

    Uhh... yeah. I had a student that thought that France was the state next to Nevada... and we were in California. I had students who did not know where the Pacific Ocean was... AND WE WERE IN CALIFORNIA. I had a student that thought that 28 Days Later was a DOCUMENTARY.... the amount of ****ing stupid out there is astounding.

    Many Americans think that I need a visa to leave New Mexico.

    That's definitely the case for ANYONE wanting to enter Texas.
