Posted:I know Flunky, isn't such a sad shame that Americans cannot even find Lake Erie on a map? This is one of America's natural land marks. Actually we do have much to be proud of. Many of us that CAN find Scotland and any other tiny abysmal country on a map. ITS NOT THAT HARD, esspecially if you paid attention in second grade geography. Yes many people here do know ITS HOT ITS BRIGHT it must be a STAR (please produce a source for your statistics)... Dont get me wrong we do have our fair share of blithering fools but EVERY country does including YOURS! SO now my question Flunky, what makes you think you are so great all knowing and all intelligent to judge others based upon where they come from?????

Posted:By the way gottab however you spell your name, it really doesnt matter to me, i am not pissed. i am merely trying to prove a point. It is ignorant to stereotype and label. To do so merely proves your own ignorance as human being thats all im trying to say.
