    Aaaaaalabama, Alaska, Arizona, ... Yeah, memorization through the POWER OF MUSIC.

    That's how I memorized it! hahahaha!

    Actually, my geography is really weak. Thus we have a thing called maps and GPS! WOOT!!!

    At least I don't need to pull out my cellphone with the calculator to do math (ex: splitting the bills at restaurants)

    My mother, born in 1963, didn't know what the cold war was. She didn't have a clue that the Soviet Union fell. She didn't know what the Berlin Wall was about.

    Want worse?

    She thinks Hitler was converting and/or killing Christians over his Atheistic beliefs.
    She thought Saddam Hussein was the one who bombed us on 9/11.
    She thinks the reason our country is failing is because we can't pray in schools.
    She even thinks AIDS is always spread by gay people.
    And...
    Just for you, cause I know how much you love these kind of things: She thinks almost all people of African descent frequently engage in incest because they don't have actual family units.

    Let's see where this goes...
    No offense Terasiel... but if I was given the opportunity I may have to murder your mom for the good of humanity. Then again you're not so bad so maybe its her brain thats fucked up and not her ovaries. >_>

    Im fucking with you btw. Seriously Im not at all surprised about that Saddam Hussein thing. I have a feeling everyone outside of NYC believes that crap. The incest thing is funny because my roommate always says that incest in Texas (my neighbor in my dorm is Texan) went down 70% with the invention of television, and 90% with the invention of cable tv. Don't tell her that for the AIDS thing to be right she just needs to replace "Gays" with "Inner city minorites"... She might die of joy. The Hitler thing I think you should smack her in the back of the head for. Seriously... No seriously I'm not fucking kidding. Open palm preferably.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I worry more about grown adults, who can not read in this day and age.

    But I have to say,I donīt know all the counties of my home country (Romania,there are around 41 I think).

    And Iīm living in Germany and I donīt know all the "Länder" here too.Most people of my age (around 15-16) donīt know emī either,but even so Iīm one of those who know more.
    But Iīll tell ya,there are things you must know and others that arenīt that important....I meant,whatīs the use of knowing the names of 41 counties (Itīs prolly something else with the USA,a state there is as big as Romania xD)

    Iīll learn this things someday probably (if I have time :P ). But donīt worry,I know that Africa isnīt a single country and I also know Africa is located south of Europe ^^

    I think that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me in this forum. I'm marking this on my calender. Then again, people might misinterpret "Steal Day."

    The incest thing is funny because my roommate always says that incest in Texas (my neighbor in my dorm is Texan) went down 70% with the invention of television, and 90% with the invention of cable tv.
    She'd laugh at that, but never concede that it reflects on her Southern rural upbringing; and she's lived in a pasture, in one place or another, for the majority of her life. (Save the time she was married at 15 and possibly for a short time after she was remarried at 16.)

    On a related note: Did you see how close Obama got to winning South Carolina? How he's still possibly the winner of and North Carolina and Missouri?(Still Pending) Hell, he even got at or around 40% in all Southern States in which he didn't win.

    As far as I'm concerned, that's cool as hell.

    If they canīt write but live in a modern country, they are ill-breded (okay- not their fault), but still itīs somehow a good think, they canīt spread their believes (usually ill-breded people believe nonsense) as well.
