Americans have a reputation abroad for being somewhat insular, and nothing better illustrates that than Jimmy Kimmel asking people to name a country on the world map.

1. I was once asked where I was from, when I answered, “New Mexico”, the person asked, “Where in Mexico is that?” I laughed thinking they were joking…they were not.
2. My niece, in 2he grade at the time, was tasked with preparing an oral report about a state capital. So, we talked about which one she might want to talk about. Looked at the map, pointed out each state and what the capital of each was called. She chose to talk about Tallahassee, because she liked the sound of it. She wrote out what she wanted to say about it, and, done with homework.
Next day, when she got home, I asked how she’d done with her talk. She said she’d done well, but, her teacher told her the capital of Florida was Miami, so, she’d had to mark her off for that.

HOW CAN THEY NOT TELL AUSTRALIA AT LEAST? I KNEW THIS STUFF WHEN I WAS SIX YEARS OLD!
I find it truly perplexing. These people as adult spend most of their time thinking of what to eat, who to screw and what to buy on Amazon, this is what make them stupid and useless as adults. What were they thinking when they were small kids? What bothered their little curious minds?
Peopla can’t figure out a flipped map.
