America's Youth Can't Find Rednecks On A Map
1/3 of Youths Can't Find Louisiana on a Map
Why the fuck would we want to? Really? What did Louisiana ever do for me?
Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 fared even worse with foreign locations: six in 10 couldn't find Iraq
Guess what? I dont care where Iraq is, its in the Middle East and its next to Iran, ok?
What should really be upsetting to all of you is the following quote:
"Geographic illiteracy impacts our economic well-being, our relationships with other nations and the environment, and isolates us from the world," National Geographic president John Fahey said in announcing a program to help remedy the problem.
Ok, that is an outrageous claim. How exactly does not having the exact location of Iraq memorized REALLY impact all of that shit? I can GOOGLE it, can't I? If push comes to shove, I can certainly find it, but I have way too many other things on my mind to get involved in your (most likely) for-profit government funded tax write-off program , asswipe.
