and people wonder why so many other countries think americans are idiots.
January 7, 2014 at 12:48 am
I don't wonder why. It's simply because they ARE idiots.

*shakes head in utter disbelief of the stupidity of mankind*. What the fuck are kids being taught in school? We pay all these taxes and 12 years of supplies for school, for what?!?! I don't understand.
January 5, 2014 at 10:09 pm
13 years k-12......
January 5, 2014 at 11:43 pm
Oh, my, God! And I'm sharing the same freakin' planet!
January 6, 2014 at 2:42 pm
Actually, in Ontario, Canada, you have the option of graduating Gr. 12 or 13. Both my parents graduated with Gr. 13 education (it's equivalent it university 1)
January 6, 2014 at 4:37 pm
@ Amber--what they don't show are the retweets from their similarly educated friends telling them they're idiots. You can spend everything you want but you can't buy motivation. If their "give-a-damn" is sprained and their parents don't insist on performance you get folks like these, the ones Jay Leno shows on Jay Walking (many of whom are WAY old enough to know better), etc.
January 7, 2014 at 2:13 am
I'd bet some of these geniuses went to religious schools, in which case your taxes did not finance their education, such as it was.
January 5, 2014 at 8:12 pm
I bet my nut sack that no other nation thought 2014 is their country's birthday
January 5, 2014 at 8:32 pm
You'd lose that bet.

Mags McDonald I highly doubt it
January 5, 2014 at 9:02 pm
Having lived and been educated abroad, I absolutely guarantee it. Stupidity is a human trait, it knows no national boarders.

Mags McDonald now that is one hell of a quote right there
January 5, 2014 at 9:22 pm
Sandra Crosley Petrie
Yes that's exactly what I meant. And obviously my misspelling validates every negative American stereotype.
January 5, 2014 at 9:37 pm
Again, I absolutely guarantee it. Stupidity is universal.
January 5, 2014 at 11:56 pm
Yeah, stupidity exist all over the world. The problem here is that it is influential, as in people running for presidents. Ask Rick Santorum how old he thinks the earth is.
January 6, 2014 at 1:15 am
Stupidity is not universal! Americans are stupid, that's a fact!
January 6, 2014 at 4:14 am
Luka Djurisic ... stupid comment.
January 6, 2014 at 9:55 am
Luka Djurisic.... You feel this way, yet you are living in Colorado going to an American school. Right on!!! Obviously, stupidity can fly in from Serbia , too! I agree with Mags M. it's universal.
January 6, 2014 at 11:43 am
Luka Djurisic Self -awareness isn't exactly a strength of yours, is it?
January 7, 2014 at 12:54 am
Mags McDonald Stupidity is indeed universal, but, in the 'stupid league', America will always be number 1.
January 7, 2014 at 2:15 am
Mags McDonald: Then it should be easy for you to prove it.
January 7, 2014 at 8:16 pm
Mags McDonald you are american...your argument is invalid
January 8, 2014 at 6:15 pm
Mags McDonald: Have to agree, its not so much that there are any more stupid people over there, its just a combination of:
1: The fact there are so many of you, the stupid has can gather in bigger and more noticeable groups - combined with -
2: Proper Freedom of speech.
And to be fair, i think its a fair exchange.
There is certainly enough stupid over here in the UK to keep us busy for a while, and i certainly wish our Freedom of speech matched yours, even with the consequences.
Ivan Šunić Camaro:
January 9, 2014 at 5:34 pm
Mags McDonald - you're a text book example why other countries think americans are dumbasses, even though most of them I know aren't. You say you've lived abroad and been educated there. Then if it's not a third world country, you're a big fat liar,('cause most of school systems in the world and especially in Europe are way more advanced than in the USA, proof being produced in the above tweets. My 9 year old niece has more education than all of those retards put together) and they didn't teach you how to spell over there. When you learn my language at the same level as I know english, both in speech and writing, then maybe and just maybe you are allowed to call other nations stupid.
Oh yeah, aside from english, I speak two more foreign languages and you are having difficulties with your native one...
January 9, 2014 at 9:55 pm
Graham Salkin . There is very little freedom of speech here in America. Better the devil you know mate.
January 5, 2014 at 8:13 pm
I Reeaally hope there was at least ONE sarcastic tweet in there...
Tommy DropThe Lyme:
January 5, 2014 at 9:51 pm
Problem with that would be that most people are to stupid to understand it was meant to be sarcastic.
K David Friend Cochran:
January 5, 2014 at 9:53 pm
The last one, I looked up her original...
January 5, 2014 at 10:08 pm
I think the one that says "morans" is sarcastic in that it's an old reference to a very badly made protest sign.

January 7, 2014 at 7:18 pm
Carlitos M. Reyes yeah, I looked that one up on twitter and his friends replied about him getting screen capped by people who didn't know his humour (and he's in Ottawa and PhD student).
Steven Scott Wyton:
January 5, 2014 at 11:18 pm
No offence to any Americans ( i have American friends, i live in Canada) but this is a perfect example of Americans really believing that they are the center of the universe...i mean, that one tweet that said she or he couldn't believe America was discovered the day Jesus was born 2014 yrs ago! LMAO! In all honesty though it saddens me that American youth are being allowed to actually GRADUATE High School with this kind of knowledge and belief system!! We are truly doomed if this is what the future of mankind has in store for it's next generation of leaders...
January 5, 2014 at 11:48 pm
O.k., I agree and I fault the lack of school funds. The school system needs revamped also. Teachers are taught to find the ones that want to learn and forget about everyone else. Parents use TV, games, and cellphones as babysitters, instead of interacting with their kids. No one takes the time to think up ways to help kids want to learn the "UN-fun" subjects like, history, math, English, etc. No asks, "how can I make the knowledge easier for them to absorb without dumbing it down?" Word of mouth and talking to one another has been replaced by airing your personal grievances on a social media outlet such as Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook. With the world becoming smaller through computers and such, education should have become easier. Instead it has taken a step backwards. Communication is reduced to acronyms and symbols for letters. Instead of wanting to see the world, now you just Google it. So if our kids are ignorant, seeing neither the big picture nor the small one, then part of the blame,whether we admit it or not, falls to us. For we are their teachers, their guidance, their mentors, until till the day that they say " I am ready for life." Even after that so they know they can rely on someone who has been there to help them stay the course.
January 5, 2014 at 11:50 pm
Matthew Pack well said my friend
January 6, 2014 at 4:45 pm
Matthew Pack agreed, but as one who strives to make math more interesting, who shows DAILY why it's relevant, you can't buy motivation. We aren't taught to "find the ones who want to learn", there are just so many hours in a day. If their "give-a-darn" is sprained or broken they plain aren't going to learn. Doesn't mean you quit trying, quit making those phone calls home, etc. Not a ton different than when I was a public school student in the '60's and '70's, there were students who excelled in school, there were students who failed in schooll, and that 70% of students somewhere in between.

Did anyone notice that most of the posters are under the age of 25? #education #nochildleftbehind
January 5, 2014 at 8:22 pm
Is it just me or has anyone noticed....Everyone of them is an American!! Well a whole great country of freaking dumb people!!
January 6, 2014 at 5:56 am
There are retards in every country, it's just in most of those countries stupid people are poor, and poor people can't afford internet.
January 6, 2014 at 11:29 am
Its true dat there are retards in every country!! but ppl shud hav atleast a minimum amount of intelligence!! U mean 2 say ppl in america are poor??
January 6, 2014 at 2:40 pm
Aleks Gingras Wow you are so stupid you should be quoted in this article with the rest of your friends.

January 6, 2014 at 7:06 pm
Alok Hota and your ignorance of proper grammar is the exact thing this thread is about! This is NOT texting, so, show your intelligence by using proper grammar, then MAYBE, just MAYBE we can take you seriously!
January 6, 2014 at 7:09 pm
Alok Hota, again... the proper grammar to your question would be: WHat does poverty havE TO do witH stupidity?
January 7, 2014 at 1:54 am
Vladimir Moldovan you understand that this was generally speaking. America is full of spoiled kids with rich parents who never really grow up. These kids are given everything, and as such, have learned nothing. Then they are given free reign to use the internet and thus the stupidity of American people is all over the internet.
However, this does not mean that only Americans are stupid. There are stupid people in all countries. But not all of them have a computer.
January 7, 2014 at 6:22 am
Jerrie hayley klenk- People understood what I said...and that includes you too..so job's done!! And please don't get touchy if I commented on your country!! This post was all about stupidity on twitter and I couldn't help notice that every single person in the pics.. are celebrating "2014 years of America"!!
January 7, 2014 at 6:27 am
Aleks Gingras- I agree 2 sum of the things that u say..especially about the spoiled kids !! Here in India we too hav celebrity kids who have loads and loads of money.. yet can't even name the Prime Minister of our country!!
January 7, 2014 at 6:33 am
Alok Hota I just find it a little ironic that you would dare speak of the ignorance of others and not even bother to use grammar! Yes, I am intelligent enough to be able to decipher the mumbo you attempt to speak.. just seriously thought it was a bit funny that someone that cannot even take the time to use grammar, has the nerve to speak of someone else's intelligence!
January 7, 2014 at 7:00 am
Jerrie Hayley Klenk- You seem pretty hell bent on proving that my grammar is weak! When all I did was that I wrote a sentence in textese instead of using normal words and that too under emotion due to the preposterous nature of the sentence!! If you are intelligent enough then you should have read what Aleks said!! But No...u had your focus on me!! The truth is that you simply can't take criticism about your countrymen!! #2014YearsofAmerica
January 7, 2014 at 11:36 am
Aleks Gingras You started with some actual rational thinking there and made a decent point, before venturing back into USA worship ... The greatest country on earth! Because you have computers and can share the stupidity. No. Take a peek http://www.netindex.com/ and see that USA isn't even in the top 10 countries on internet speed. So cut the "not all of them have a computer" crap, because it makes you look like an idiot in front of everyone (except for americans of course, they will love you for it).
And of course there are stupid people everywhere. Stupidity is universal. But because of your lifestyle and the constant blowing up your own asses that 'murica is so awesome, a much more sizeable chunk of your population become retarded ignorant fucks.

In an age of Mass Information, Stupidity is Optional. Yes, Most of my Generation is been Intellectually Castrated, however there are the Occasional ones such as i who reject the Education System for what it really is, An Indoctrination Institution, and learn Independently.
Forget the Government and its Indoctrination System, take the initiative and Teach Yourself.

I also agree that the cost of college is ridiculous. Did you know that since 1987, taking into account inflation, the cost of a college education has risen more than 110%? Sallie Mae is a bitch, and I hate her.

January 7, 2014 at 12:59 am
These seriously aren't jokes? There are actually people this stupid? I sincerely pity these people. Can this level of intelligence even be considered human? You certainly don't need the brain power that a human is capable of to go through life thinking in these ways
