Hey don't put us all in the same category as the OP! Not all of us on the west coast are idiots....granted, I grew up on the east coast.... That must be it.

being ignorant is not having a good education so you do not know anything,being stupid is having an education but still not knowing SKADOUCHE BAG

WOW... but I just think that it's most Americans who are idiots... I'm from Canada and it never ceases to amaze me how many Americans think we have snow up here all year round and some even think we all live in igloos.

I've heard that Brown University was the "reject school" of the Ivy Leagues but this is just piling on. And yeah I've gotta say from what I've experienced going to a big school on the east coast (and growing up on the east coast) with many students from the west coast going here; they definitely seem to be more "geographically ignorant" in general out there. I live in North Carolina and have been asked on more than one occasion by people form out west if NC and SC are part of the same state! Not kidding.

To be fair, there are polar bears in places in Canada. Granted, the odds of you living in those places are slim. But OP is the sort of reason I apologise for being American. Room for one more up North?

In his defense, my friend who goes to Stanford didnt know.. And she's extremely intelligent. People just forget the obvious sometimes, I guess, since I know at least my friend learned it. They should ask this question in the CAHSEE every time. If they still pass after being wrong, at least a few people will become curious and look it up. Ironically, i remember it's not an islans BECAUSE the name is deceitful.

Yeah, um, I grew up on the West coast and I DEFINITELY know Rhode Island is not and island. Stupidity isn't just a regional thing. Though I did have some dumbass from Oklahoma ask me how far it was to Canada from Oregon and I had to tell him a) where Oregon was to begin with and b) there's another state in between Oregon and Canada.

I had someone from Virginia ask me the time here once. I told them it was 7. They asked if 7am or pm.. I live in California, but to this day I let them believe i'm 15 hours behind. Not 9 ahead.. 15 behind. Same with some Canadian girl, but she figured it out 3 years later.

Sundog, Canada does have snow all year long...... Im not saying that you can't see grass or go out comfortably in t-shirts, but there is always a place in canada where you can go and pick up a handful of natural snow....

I would also like to know how you even got into college. I always thought it was pretty common knowledge that there are only 2 states that are not part of the mainland; and Rhode Island is NOT one of them. Living on the west coast is not an excuse for not knowing RI isn't actually an island.

#149: It's really unfair to say that all americans are idiots. I will agree that MANY americans are dumb, and many think stupid things about other countries (or rhode island...) But that's a stereotype that people all over the world think all americans are morbidly obese. This has some basis in fact, but it's not completely true. you are complaining about canadian stereotypes when you play into american stereotypes. think about that.... oh, and the OP is a dumbass. They will never get into RISD or Brown or whatever school is there.

#224. "I had someone from Virginia ask me the time here once. I told them it was 7. They asked if 7am or pm.. I live in California, but to this day I let them believe i'm 15 hours behind. Not 9 ahead.. 15 behind." Someone please correct me if I'm wrong but if your friend is in VA (eastern time) and you are in CA (Western time) that leaves central and mountain time between you. You are actually 3 hours BEHIND someone on the east coast. Check out www.time.gov for proof. Also, remember that the ball drops in NYC before midnight happens in CA.

okay WE ate not stupid and I'm not singling anyone out but it doesn't matter where u live if your stupid or not we all do know that OP is the stupid one though because we all not that Rhode Island is not an island but I agree that America can have it's stupid people but so can any other country so don't be calling America dumb

Reply

1. OP is a fool! 2. Just to go off of people living on the west coast. I grew up in Iowa, and moved to Minnesota for college. I was online chatting with a woman from L.A. When asked where I'm from and after telling her from Iowa. She then asked "Iowa is Australia right?" *face-palm*

Reply

I'm from space and I know it's not an island!! ok that's enough for calling out homes far away from Rhode Island and saying u knew. we all get it. op is stupid

Sigh, you silly Canadians... Americans aren't retarded, some are just ignorant because they grow up in such easy living conditions and choose to remain un-educated. Many Americans are very intelligent and talented indivuals. All great nations have rough patches, but it's those rough patches that inspire people to improve.

Reply

Sundog, that is my point dumb ass, you said that you didnt have snow all year long, and since there might only be a couple of countries that dont have snow all year long i thought surely Canada was not one of the exceptions...... And please explain to us all how im a dumb ass because the US as snow all year long too???? I think your the one who mad an ignorant statement.....

Reply

please, I'm in Canada, and there are plenty of dumbass canadians, even some who have an "education". Stupid is for everyone, everywhere. Not just Americans. It would help if they didn't give really stupid people tv shows, however. Jus' sayin'.

Wow, I just realized all of these comments are in responce to number one. Also, I smell a history lesson coming on. The full name of rhode island is rhode island and providence plantations. Aquidneck island was origonaly rhode island, but the name was changed to avoid confusion. Providence plantations was all the non-island part of rhode island. So,if the op's collage is on Aquidneck island(which it probably isn't), then she was right in a way, and the interviewer would probably have taken a car out on one of the bridges. If the collage was on Aquidneck island. Which it probably isn't. Also: the full name of rhode island is rhode island and providence plantations, making it have the longest name for a state. The motto is hope, making that the shortest motto for a state. So the smallest state has the largest name and the smallest motto.

i voted you tottaly deserved it fir being in collage and not knowing rhode islands not actually an island and your lifr sucks for being a complete and total idoit

Reply

avoidthegirl you are an idiot. The guy probably knew that oregon wasn't on the border with canada if it was his question wouldn't make sense. You should try out this new thing . . . it's called a brain.

dudeitsdanny i could be wrong here but it is only a four hour difference not a nine. That is four time zones difference and each time zone change is an hour.

Don't say all American's are as stupid as her, if anyone cared enough about Canada, i'd think of something witty to say but i'm a freshman in college and i've known Rhode Island isn't an island since the 3rd Grade. and i grew up in the South

Reply

ya okay I'm pretty sure nobody cares about you anyways Canada. you are a hat on a America and nothing else. if you haven't NOTICED. you guys mean nothing to the world.. ssorry but you've been overlooked to everyone for your entire existence. when I think of Canada I think of beavers and snow. because nobody actually educates us about Canada, because you it's are completely useless and pretty much a wall flower. or like a quiet kid in the corner. so I really don't have a opinion on you dumb fuck canadians commenting on here. atleast you guys learn about America :) cuz were actualy important ... and if any spelling Nazis are going to use grammar and punctuation against me. I'm using an iPod and a am a lazy American ;) not that it hurts anyone if I dotnt spell something right. so fuck of if you have a problem, go be a grammar teacher and stop being a fuck

Reply

375 - Who is the complete and total idiot here, because it seems to me OP isn't the only stupid person on here. For instance, you spelled college wrong. Another person spelled American wrong. Nobody is perfect, I know that, and am not by any means indicating that I am perfect at all (I am in fact very far from perfect). If I have offended anyone at all, i apologize. I don't think any one can give me this answer, but what I would truly like to know is what is the matter with people these days?

Actually Australia is a CONTINENT, and since the world is mostly water every single continent is surrounded by water. So, the real definition of an island is any land completely surrounded by land that is not big enough to be a continent...... And for all you retards calling it an island, look it up.... I think greenland or somewhere is the biggest island, and Australia is bigger than that.....

Reply

Really??? Damn, i thought that 2,967,892 square miles (http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/economies/Asia-and-the-Pacific/Australia.html) would be larger than 836,109 square miles (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_square_miles_is_Greenland) I do feel like a retard......

Haha I live in MA ( RI is about 5 mins away and here you technically live in both states) When I told my family this they laughed their asses off. Oh God I love being a Rhode Islander...

That'll be a long time coming. The Soviet Union hasn't existed for how many years now? And I grew up in the West, and people can be just as stupid about things when they're from the East. The number of questions our Forest Service got... My personal favorite was as following: At what altitude does a deer become an elk, and an elk become a moose? Moose, deer, and elk are all separate species, smart one.

You do know that 36 million people live in California alone? We're not all stupid, dick. In fact, some of the top schools are on the west coast. Maybe she's going to a college in Rhode Island because she's a dumbass. I don't know anyone who lives here that actually thinks Rhode Island is an island. I think I would know more people than you, considering I live here.

Reply

I didn't know, and I'm in California -.-. Well, I'm only in the 7th grade, but I think California's school standards excludes U.S. geography XD. At least up to where I'm at.

Reply

It's a potentially legitimate mistake. Just not for an American citizen hoping to be accepted in a college that requires interviews of potential students that happens to be on the opposite side of the majority of the country.

Reply

I can only think of 4 schools here that might require interviews, and only Brown would take someone that dumb, but only if they had lots of money. Also, Quahog's not a real town, so stop fucking asking us.
