we are not stupid, ....

well, let me refrase that, if we are stupid then that means that the whole world is really freaking stupid, because we are the worlds only super power, and we could blow up the whole world and claim it as ours' if we wanted to....,
so the rest of the world must be really stupid if they cant beat up a country full of idiots',

Get your facts straight!

1. This is a "Funny Stuff" forum. You wish to discuss go to World & News Events in the Lounge. Dont expect to get more replies here.

2. You are one of the majority ignorant people in US. You just proved it.

3. The word is "rephrase" and not "refrase." You are proving the point of average American having a lesser IQ.

4. Bill Gates didnt invent Computers.
Most of the principles of computers were developed in Europe, mainly in Germany and England. One could argue that the Babylonians "invented" the computer when they created the Abacus. But, let's not be pedantic, let's assume that you mean a programmable, digital, electronic computer... then the English were the first there with Enigma and Colossus: two computers built to decypher German codes during the WWII way back in 1943

You don't agree to me? Go Google!

Edit: Oh by the way, you are not the only American around here! More of us see this as a fact about the ignorance.

I was born in America, but I am mostly German and English.

Even though I live here, I agree most Americans are dumb, like all this racist and religous stuff going on here is just bs. Like here, if you do anything to another race, its racist, but im not sure about other countries that do this to. And that Floridian lady who just converted to muslim after the attacks on 9-11, she sued because she couldnt wear the thing on her head that covers up her face when taking her drivers licence photo. And our principle made a retired football player leave our school when he said &#39;god&#39; in his speech about motivation, even when we say &#39;under god&#39; every morning&#33;

And no one can forget the damned RIAA.

I dont know why I am still replying. Your replies are proving every point about ignorance.

So, personal computers huh&#33;
Bill Gates made the first personal computer? :lol: I doubt. Your general knowledge about all this is terrible and not even average.
Read this&#33;
Microsoft Myths (http://badtux.org/home/eric/editorial/ms_lies.php)

So without windows we can do nothing? Open your eyes&#33; More than 100 OS&#39;s are around. You want an OS I can build you an OS overnite :D :rolleyes:

Btw, IT industry in US works best because of the worthy genius immigrants from China, India and other countries&#33; (non-american) who come to reside in US because the situations in those countries are not promising.

So let me say this wisely now, once and for all,

You answered 13 questions correctly out of 20.

For an American, your knowledge of the world and its history is surprisingly good. About the same as the average school-age person in any other country. If you are at school, congratulations. If you are an adult, try harder. Read books, visit other countries, and watch less television. Learn to understand the world better and you could become an ambassador for your country, demonstrating that Americans are not all stupid.

Seems at least one of your questions/answers is incorrect. &#39;Running&#39; can be either a noun, adjective or adverb, according to Merriam Webster. I believe two of those, along with participle, are answers on your site. So unless you are going to put the word in context, your question/answer is wrong. Might want to fix that. You wouldn&#39;t want a stupid American e-mailing you to let you know you were wrong, would you? Oh dear. It&#39;s already happened. Thanks a whole bunch.

Its true in stanadardised tests we come out far below a lot of others.
I think it is just the attitude here : smart people who read books are nerdy ect. :)
that and the fact that we are such a large country and most of us are far away from others and have little contact which makes knowledge less usefull. we even domintate the internet and other types of media.

Since you bunch of liberal flaming bastards are having such a good time giving Americans hell you might want to remember who invented the Internet. We also contribute the majority of the technology that keeps it going. We also come to the aid of the rest of the world when tryants try to take over and enslave their subjects or natural disasters. Seems when you need or armies, money, or goods you&#39;re happy so see us then.

BTW: The Internet was a DOD (US Department of Defense) project from the 60&#39;s that turned into a University thing and now into the public Internet.

Ok, this is going outta control. Not all Americans are stupid, but some are&#33;&#33; As for the thing where someone says that the Us is a super-power, i think not, the Us economy is going to hell because of the things that have went on (9.11 terror strike, attavk to tht Iraq), the US have lost its state of being a super-power. I think that the CONTINENTS of Europe and Asia are more of a super-powers.

As for the thing of US could easily conquer rest of the world, is false. The only thing that would happen is that Us would fall in WWIII like the Germany fell at WWII :ph34r:. an alliance would be formed to make the US fall.

And if the US wouldnt have invented the Internet, someone else would have done it... And same thing with the eqoupment that are being used to use internet, someone else would have done &#39;em.

Some people are intellect, some are dumb, its one of the laws of the nature. Sure Einstein (i think he was American, correct me if i am wrong) and Bill Gates are men of great inventors, but there are wisemen all around the world, even in Iraq which (this word is always too hard to write :P ) the American so much hate.

And US government is just a bunch of capatolists who rap them selves in the flag and god to appease the public and hide there true motives.

eg. the president new the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbour b4 it happened but let i happen anyway cuz they wanted an excuse to enter the war.

while i agree with you on a lot of things u said, i dont think roosevelt let pearl harbor happen. if he knew it was going to happen he would have tried to get some of the ships out of the harbor... it totally paralyzed the US Pacific Fleet. But it would be stupid to change the topic- even as an american i find this topic funny but also frightening.

It is well thought that Roosevelt knew the Japenese were going to attack, he had Churchill banging on at him to join the war in Europe but had the problem of a domestic public bent on keeping out of another war in Europe and couldn&#39;t go against that. But if Japan attacked then he knew the American public would be falling over themselves to get back at them. As for the Pacific fleet being crippled, remember that the most important ships in the fleet, the carriers, happened to be out on excercise at the time of the attack.
