We have enough geography of our own to worry about.

:usa/euro:

That's not even including our biggest state, Alaska, which is more than twice as large as Texas and Texas is the size of France.

So, I'll take a geography test over Europe and take shit for not doing well on it as soon as you ace one on American geography.

Deal?

Here's our States and population centers if you need a study guide.

:mapofus:


Also if you're wondering if this thread is just another American excuse to be a douche and show off, the answers is yes, yes it is.

Re: WHY AMERICANS DON'T BOTHER LEARNING EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY EXPLAINED IN ONE IMAGE
We're definitely taught a Eurocentric view of Western civilization which is often one sided. When it comes to geography, even in my time raising kids, the American educational system has failed.

There are people who will argue at the number of states in America, let alone be able to identify all of them on a map. Naming capitals is far reach for the "average" citizen.

In today's world, there is little focus placed on memorizing the USA map and its geographic features and locations. It has been lost in favor of smart tech giving us a world map in our hands.

Many of the geographic comparisons posted in the replies clearly come from the middle to older aged crowd because we were taught relationships between sizes and such. The younger generations, not so much and school aged kids now get that in like, 8th grade and not really ever again except in review.

Geography is the key that unlocks understanding of r the world and it's people but sadly it is not viewed as important as it once was.

I don't get the point of Europeans are better in this thread and think it's kinda trolling, but I do agree that America's education of this topic has been lacking for quite some time.

Re: WHY AMERICANS DON'T BOTHER LEARNING EUROPEAN GEOGRAPHY EXPLAINED IN ONE IMAGE
As an American, let me say how embarrassing this thread is.

1 star.

There exists an all-too pervasive subset of American culture which takes pride in its own ignorance. OP and his supporters represent it perfectly. Any time someone posts a message on this forum asking why everyone hates Americans, this thread should serve as the main reply.

How noble to renounce learning and understanding, OP! Is the grey matter so sparse in your minuscule cranium that you can only fit so much, and once it reaches its capacity, that's it? So much to learn about U.S. geography that you've reached your limit? Not another brain cell to spare?

Is this how our founding fathers, all learned men, thought about things?

I'm a conservative. I voted for Trump. I loathe all liberals, lefties, commies and globalists. I care about conservation but I understand anthropogenic climate change for the fraud that it is. I believe segregation should be a choice that starts at local communities because people should have the right not to live near others who are proven to be more violent and less productive. I support the Second Amendment. I support a complete ban of Islam in all western nations and don't believe it conflicts with the First Amendment because Islam is, after all, a violent and seditious political system, not a religion per se. I support the Natural Born Citizen clause of the US Constitution and as such believe that our last president was actually an illegal usurper named Barry. As you can see, I'm quite right-wing. I'm not some limp-wristed Europhile with a hipster beard and a Starbucks latte by my side. But I understand that in order to defeat the diabolical forces arrayed against us in this world, we need knowledge, understanding, education, a fascination with history and the history of great men and nations. Pride in our own ignorance is precisely what TPTB want.

Congratulations, OP. You're playing right into their hands. Now go munch on some hot dogs and apple pie, wave your flag, start hyping yourself for the NFL draft and spend a fortune at Walmart. That's all it really means to be an American, right?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17324208


I have faith that eventually you will figure out that what they have tricked conservatives and specifically Christians into doing to push the global agenda is to buy into the whole "one ppl" nonsense.

There is nothing wrong with competition and everyone coming together and forgetting why we are different leads to the situation Germany, France and Sweden are currently dealing with.

In the name of "coming together" mind you.

Nice divide and conquer thread, OP. This is literally a non issue that you have made into one. We should be united in the fight against TPTB, not squabbling over knowing geography or not.
 Quoting: Chad Dragonslayer


I see op is smarter than you also. Op is being a nationalist which is the opposite of globalist. The globalist want us "all to get together". See the EU fir how that plays out in the real world.

You know what else op did? He has all these countries in here defending their countries showing national pride. Something very much needed in Europe and something that fights globalism.

Bullshit, he was just D+Cing because he is a shill, a troll or a tard. Or a mix of these 3. Excusing it backwards by "hurr durr it was his plan all along" is pretty goddamn retarded. And I am not even Romanian or whatever the flag says.

So you're completely clueless to the fact that euro tards couldn't pass a US geography test if their life depended on it yet you think Americans not being able to pass a European one is indicative of something that doesn't equally apply to them?

Let me simplify it for you. Don't fall for Europeans shit. They know their piece of the world just like we know ours and ours is actually bigger and has more to memorize than theres.
