Fake. I'm an American and I can locate Iran on a map.

Well. There's also the fact that this is an Australian show, and all of them when asked to put a marker on a country put it on Australia. I wasn't sure if it was fake till I saw that bit.

It's because it said Iran where Australia is. The map had the names on it, just in the wrong places.

Aside from a few odd south pacific islands, I can probably locate just about any country on a blank map. The only area that I can get a bit fuzzy on is the central western African coast.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

At least unlike many on this site I know that our society is not located up in "libertarian" cloud-cuckoo-land, but rather down here on planet earth where the regime of the rich, aka unfettered capitalism, =/= liberty and justice for all.
Yo, all of my subliterate conservative criticasters who find perusing and processing the sesquipedalian verbiage of my posts to be such a bothersome brain-taxing chore, I have a new nickname for you. Henceforth you shall be known as Pooh Bears. No, not for the obvious apt reasons, i.e., not because you're full of pooh, and not because of your ursine irritability. Rather, you put me in mind of an A.A. Milne quote, "I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me". Love ya, Pooh Bears.

I also have no use for thinking in parochial and existentially puny terms such as being a Liechtensteinian or a Nauruan or an American or what have you. I would prefer to say, with the 17th-century philosopher John Toland, "The sun is my father, the earth my mother, the world is my country and all men are my family."

Not a chance. The English are much more funny.

Unfortunately, the dumbest here seem to make more noise and be louder than their more intelligent counterparts. So yes, they do make us look bad.

The dumb have to shout, while the smart can whisper and still be heard. It isn't the volume, but the power of your words.

Then why are there videos like this circling the web? Why do I rarely see the intelligent Americans showing off their knowledge yet I always see videos and blogs mocking the idiocy of some of us? (Granted, they are out there, but nobody really wants to hear the smart ones). Face it. The world wants everyone to know how dumb we can be, while those who are intelligent are simply drowned out.

Or lose the race to rats

And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
