There's an old saying. If you don't want someone to join a crowd, you ask them, "If everyone were jumping off of a cliff, would you?" Well, I have. So my answer would be "Yes". True story.

You Average American Would Not Pass a Citizenship Test

Monday, September 10, 2012

this entry brought to you by nine inch nails, "home"

You know, I think it's interesting when they say some amount of Americans wouldn't pass the citizenship quiz. Well, yeah. And I'll bet your average high school student could beat any adult at complex algebra, because there's no reason to give a shit once you've actually got a job.

Can you imagine what sort of psycho super patriot would be able to ace the citizenship test if you just gave it to him on the street? How in the world would that information have anything to do with our day to day lives? Yes, some foreigner studying to become a citizen can do better than the average American on a test when he's immersed in it, but I'll bet if you take the average American off the street they'll be able to figure out how away how far away a destination is in miles just by thinking about it.
