You just brought it up. Too late now. Tell us the rest.

If she had just stuck with her first sentence......
that some people don't have a map.... she might of been ok.

How did I miss this for this long. Was that honestly the best she could have thought of? Right of the top of my head I would be saying the geography is taking a backseat in schools because of pressure to improve in mathematics, and the sciences to keep up with other nations and gone into some tirade about that. Seriously, that is not a hard question.

If one of the five does, I would appreciate a Mapquest PM
of the location.

First of all, where's my passport? I need to get out of this country...

Second of all, please make this girl refrain from reproducing in the future.

Many teenagers know little about geography; it's just so damn boring to learn about.

In Maine we had a phrase for someone seemingly as dumb - such a person was said to be "numb as a Hake".

This is a Hake ...


At first I thought this young woman from So. Carolina would qualify, but I saw a later shot of her leaving the pageant proving she is no dummy ...

What she meant to say was, "Disregard what-ever I say, I escaped from the shallow end of the gene pool after-all"...

You just had the wrong teacher. I found it so interesting, I majored in it.

Bottom line: There are only do many hours in the day to teach subjects. Language Arts, Math, and to a MUCH lesser degree, science are where it's at right now in elementary school.

Mods, delete if found too political. I would wager that we care about as much about geography as we do politics. We are a VERY geocentric and indifferent country.

This girl is only doing what her parents told her: Look pretty to the camera. Nobody ever told her about being coherent...
