Where the hell is THAT?
Even though the US has been at war in Iraq for three years, six in 10 young Americans could not find the country on a map of the world, a Roper poll conducted for National Geographic found.
They did little better with their own country. Despite the media coverage of Hurricane Katrina, almost one-third of Americans between the ages of 17 and 24 could not locate Louisiana, and almost half were unable to identify Mississippi.
The hell? FOR DAYS - if not weeks - we received footage about Hurricane Katrina and its location. I've seen more satellite photos of the Gulf of Mexico than photos of myself - actually, this could be a good thing.
Well, perhaps it's not fair for me to criticise America since I'm bit of a geography nerd (I once sat down in early highschool and memorised ALL the American states), but honestly young America, what's going on, eh? As they say in Minnesota, doncha know where Iraq is?
