How much do you know about the world?

Go ahead and take a little quiz, and see just how depressingly easy it can be to feel smart in America. If you can find Iraq on a map faster than you can name where the TV show CSI is set, you too are an american genius. Jumpin' Jahosaphats! That should be a joke.

These are our college-age (18-24) youths, near the peak of their mental agility, and fresh out of high school. If we weren't bloody invincible, I would worry about our future...

***attention lapse..........***

...ack! You know, I was just about to grind out a long, scathing, overly sarcastic post about all the people I know who would just love an education but haven't quite cleared the 'financial' hurdles to attend a 'serious' place of learning, but I have the tube going in the background and my favorite episode of The Simpsons just came on. You know the one where Homer (you know Homer right?) keeps doing ignorant and destructive things, which cause him to shout "No come-uppance! No come-uppance!"

Yeah, gotta go. Developing...
