@R1CH– People in 3rd world countries know more about American politics that most Americans.
Or, to be more specific, have an more accurate view of American politics.Of course, most people in Canada can’t name all the provinces, so… And that’s actually way worse in my opinion. We have 50 states and a handful of territories to confuse together. It’s easy to make a mistake when there’s that much to remember, even if you actually know it. It could just be a “do’h!” moment and she’s probably looking at it right now going “Oh… duh… -facepalm-”
But to not remember the handful of provinces Canadians have when it’s been taught to them throughout school? There are extreme levels of “Whatever, I don’t care” that has to be happening there. Or just plain idiocy.
@myredstar Not sure where you got your random info from, but I definitely don’t know anyone here who couldn’t name all of our provinces. I’ve been back and forth between Canada and the States a million times and it’s pretty obvious that people are GENERALLY dumber in America. I don’t know why; their education systems aren’t all that different.
God damn it, stop boasting about your relationship on Facebook. Wanna wish him happy birthday? Fine. Want to drone on about how awesomely in love you guys are? Call him. Or at least put it on his wall so the rest of your friends don’t have to put up with your self-obsessed bullshit.
tl;dr, if your friends cared about your relationship, they’d ask. Leave it at ‘happy birthday’ next time, unless this is an e-mail.
I’ve never heard of any Canadian not being able to name all 10 provinces and the three territories. I’m not sure if I could name all 50 states though. Be interesting to see how many Canadian capital cities the Americans know.
On another note; that second one made me laugh “kayak across the pacific ocean”. Too funny!
I’m so glad google still has the entertaining ways to cross the oceans built into their maps. That’s damn funny. Although now that I’ve typed that I realize it’s probably not google, it’s something they ripped off of google. But still, it’s worth a giggle.
7cm, 80% erect, no more mucus, can feel the testicle, and semen is really ripe and ready to go. Dr says it should be on his tongue so he can taste the content. Dr says my brain just needs to tell my penis to cooperate, so all the white cancer will come out.
i’m a canadian and i can easily name all of my provinces, territories, and all their capitals. you’d probably also be shocked to know that i can and have named all 50 of your states. i really don’t see how you got to the conclusion that Canadian schools are bad, because america is notorious for its poor schooling! stop kidding yourself!
Oh my gosh. Everyone just shut up. It’s getting to where I don’t even want to go to Lamebook anymore, just because the comment sections piss me off. Either the “comment clique” (wordpervert, aslumwhatever, BritishHobo, etc.) is going on about how wonderfully clever and sexually charged they are (but you’re not), or someone is running their mouth about how their country is better than yours. It’s the internet. Everyone has an opinion, and no one cares about yours.
@lamefame, 7 cm @ 80%? I don’t know if you grew up on the metric system but that is nothing to brag about. it would be respectable if that cm was changed to inches. or if you want to feel really big you could say 70 mm @ 80%!
hey there are stupid people everywhere. why does everyone assume all americans are dumbasses because they’ve met 3 and they weren’t shining examples of intelligence? yeah we have a lot of retarts, but so does everywhere else. or maybe you guys just have selective breeding programs and bred the retart out of your country. if so i’m a wee bit jealous.
@emma, there definitely is a comment clique. But just don’t scroll down if it bothers you so much. No reason to quit looking at site because a totally hidden comments section has a group of people on it who enjoy talking to each other and are protective of their in-group. Aren’t you protective of your group of friends?
I wouldn’t quite say Americans are dumb, but in my experience the average Americans I encounter day after day are pretty ignorant, and act entitled by talking down to me (especially when they learn where I was born- like I’m a lesser being for it) more than the average people of the other three countries I’ve lived in (Canada was one of them and I had to learn all the provinces! lol) but enough about the country thing, sorry for projecting…
@ emma, the reason most of us are on this site is for the comments. Why not become a regular and join in the fun rather than ruin it for everyone else?
I don’t think there is a ‘comment clique’, that suggests some exclusivity and I don’t think that’s the case. The regular posters may well be a little acerbic from time to time, but generally only in deserving cases. Emma.
I have seen the kayak one before, my friend was told to kayak to London once, but the overshares on the obstetric front is definitely not what facebook was intended for.. Why do pregnant women think the world cares about membranes, mucous and effacement?
I’d say we’re not so much a clique as a group of people commenting on a website who just so happen to know each other’s usernames and enjoy each other’s comments because we don’t come on to the comments section and insult everyone else.
