I facepalmed so hard when I saw that when Hunger Games came out.
I wonder where all this hate for Americans comes from.
You also don't see countries without snow do that well in the winter sports for example. Or countries without any noteworthy hills do well in alpine skiing. Growing up within sight of the Alps, I can count on my hands the amount of people that didn't practically grow up on skis which results in a massive pool to recruit athletes from compared to say, Jamaica (being not known for his hard winters) or Belgium (being rather flat).
To be fair I figure most of the bigots didn't put the "brotha" in the White House. They're rather the guys who still think he doesn't belong there because he's Barak Hussein Osama.
in a large country there will be more idiots. % is probably the same, just bigger numbers.
Yeah but it was more interesting to make fun of birthers, to me
I don't have anything against Americans. We all have parts of our population with special needs. There are countrymen of mine who could rival any American redneck in retardedness. I would actually go so far to say that the idiot to sane person ratio is larger in Norway than the US.
