No one purposely designed it to make us stupid. It sucks yes, but malevolent, no.

Incorrect. It does precisely what it was intended to do.

Haha, great answer.

Are Americans stupid? Like, in general? I know there are some EXTREMELY stupid ones, and they seem to get shown on television a lot more often, presumably because the non-stupid ones are too busy, you know, contributing to society.

Dubya Bush should probably take a large portion of the blame for the common international belief that America, as a nation, is stupid. I, as an Australian, don't believe it for a second.

Dubya graduated from Yale.
He may have been bad at talking, but I don't think he was actually stupid.
Most people that graduate from Yale aren't stupid... Bill Clinton graduated from Yale, as did: William Howard Taft, Gerald Ford, current Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas; U.S. Foreign Service Officers Michael Cavanaugh U.S. Secretaries of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Dean Acheson; Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry; recent Nobel Laureates Paul Krugman, Edmund Phelps, John Bennett Fenn, Raymond Davis Jr., George Akerlof and Thomas A. Steitz. (from Wikipedia)

This seems a silly topic since the OP is American... and therefore by his own definition of Americans, "stupid".

If they are legal citizens and over the age of 18, yes.

Not really, it's just an exploitation of people that happen to be idiots in america. Those brits can't get over the fact that we invented the electric torch first.

Americans were smart before the brits came and claimed the land and pushed the real americans into small areas and started killing them off for greed. They were really smart and wise and knew how to stay healthy from nature without torturing animals. More then I can say for America today.

Thats really interesting, and I really didn't know that. How much did that have to do with the rest of your post though?

I'd go as far as to say it's f*cking hilarious!

BTW the dudes who made that video are a bunch of Aussie dudes and are some of the best IRL trolls... well, IRL.

I know I hate the first white settlers, they led to this disaster. They should have gone to Australia along with the rest of the criminals. Then when you flush the toilet it would go backwards. lmao
