because they are infants and toddlers
It took me a moment to realize you weren't insulting them. ;D
This is why people hate Americans.
Dude... I once met a couple of Americans in Stuttgart, Germany.
At the time, I was standing in front of the main station having a smoke.
So, 3 Americans walk up to me and ask me where the train station is.
Now, I would understand if they could not find the train station if the sign I was standing under saying that this was the main station would've been only in German.
But it wasn't.
4 languages. English, German, French and Arabic saying Hauptbahnhof. gare centrale. Main Station. uglagukditrainalakba. (I don't know, can't read arabic.)
The sign was not small at all. The sign was a third of the stations entrance.
I ended up playing tourist guide, translating between the Americans and the ticket clerk, seeing that they got to their platform as safe as possible - I'm just that kind of guy (except when I had a bad day).
From having that experience, though, I can't say that I am surprised.
Big deal--they're already here, they don't need to find it. ;)
Still a step up from the Aussies--they look at a map and think cheap toilet paper.
Stop asking preschoolers and old people with alzheimers these questions.
They've never left the country so they've never needed a map
Are you sure it was 'US' and not elbow? lol
Because the american school system doesn't want to actually educate children so they diagnose the majority of them with ADHD and pass them through school without teaching them anything.
I think that this lovely young lady answers the question quite eloquently:
Saw some youtube videos demonstrating this but Im sceptikal to whether it was real or not. If I ever get to the US I will test for myself lol.
That fifth doesn't care about the rest of the world, so it doesn't matter to them where the US is located.
The most important is that smart people can locate Australia on a world map!
Ask their "teachers"
The wolrd is mine !
was even more depressing when they asked them to locate countries they are at war with on a world map....
Hopefully at least the military knows where they are.
Because of terrible education, perhaps.
*Sips tea* Of course, we have such a perfect education.
I know all the important politicians, too...like...Rick...Negg?
still hating on America huh
shame you can't like the comments...
Lets ask Caitlin Upton, South Carolina Beauty Pageant 2007 contestant:
I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over HERE in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children......
