Interesting, but I don't like the title. Lots of intelligent people believe in stupid stuff or are ignorant to certain aspects of life. Note: this occurs across the entire political spectrum, despite some of the article's comments blaming FOX news. Ignorance is not confined to a single ideology or political affiliation.

So wait, was this thread made to defend Fox News or to point out how stupid we are?

Neither. How I'm I defending Fox News?

To me this reads like you are defending FOX news against comments on an article when the article never mentions FOX news (at least form what I could see), only it's comments do.
You say it wasn't your motive so case closed.

It's not from Fox news. It's from News Week. It's PEW poll data about how people believe in things like witches, can't find places on a map, and other facts people should know but don't. The Fox news comments come from people saying that people's lack of knowledge comes from watching Fox News.

I would have to agree that watching too much Fox Spews shrinks your brain.

As someone living in the BEST COUNTRY EVER (as told by News Week) I am shocked and appalled.

But I wouldn't take it too hard, 90% of people are bound to be idiots anyway, no matter where they're from. Well, I say 90%, it's more like 99,9%.

That's true, but we seem to grow them in abundance in America.

Yeah but that's because there are so many of you. There'd be as many aceholes from Finland if there were as many of us. Same goes everywhere probably.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
