Re: People are so dumb!

Ok, if this didnt happen, I would not believe someone that is 20 could be so stupid.


I was in class today talking to a friend and a guy(about 21) turned around asked me where I am from, I look at him and say N.J.

He turns back around.

A few seconds later he looks at me again(puzzled) and asks,
Quote Is that in Philadelphia?

I thought he was kidding. But then answered No, NJ is a state, and Philly is a city in the state of Penn., which is next to NJ.

Puzzled and yet not even embarrassed, he just turned back around.

I know this is a Business Statistics class, but how the hell does someone not know NJ is a state.
And he is not a foreigner

Re: People are so dumb!

That does not surprise me anymore. Most people can't even name all 50 states. It's sad

South Jersey is like a suburb of Philly.

Re: People are so dumb!

Iraq is not the 51st state - it is just our 'private oil reserve'...

I can understand not being able to name all 50 to some extent but to many people cant name their surrounding states which is just plain pathetic unless they live under a big old rock

Re: People are so dumb!

I've had someone ask me where I was from, and I said north of philly... and then they asked is that near Pennsylvania?
Honestly though Philly is out in it's own little world.

That's pretty bad considering he's an east coaster. *Not surprising though considering our school systems these days...

That's where you're wrong LTL. It's not because public schools are bad, it's because we just don't spend enough money on education.

If we just throw another trillion or two at it every year, the average test scores could go down another 20% in the next 10 years. Of course when this happens, educators will just whine about not spending enough on education!

In case you didn't notice, this is a sore subject with me.
