That's just as bad as my cousins ex-boyfriend thinking that Virginia was another country...smh, and now this guy? AND he wants to be a doctor? This country needs some help for its future.

I see our future is in good hands. Make sure to get on his good side, never know if you're gonna be his patient.

A lot of the med school students I know are terrifyingly immature with bad ethical practices. I wouldn't trust them the slightest when they graduate.

Just resd older fml that said, Today, I heard two of my students having a conversation. One asked what state Arizona was in, and the other replied Canada. I teach sixth grade social studies and they weren't joking. FML

Imagine how safe you would feel if he starts telling you how he's travelled the world (Arizona) right before surgery :D

Yea but how would you feel if someone who potentially has your life in their hands can't even tell if they have been outside their own country?

That kid is so stupid! The professor already said excluding Canada and Mexico, and since Arizona is in Canada, that student was clearly not listening.

@21 if he can't manage the focus to memorize simple geography, just think how great he'll be at memorizing biological geography. I'd hate to go in to have my appendix removed and leave the hospital with my appendix intact, but minus a kidney.

#50 yeah, and you have room to talk. Everybody knows Arizona is in Mexico, not Canada. Gosh, what do people learn in school these days :p

Everyone is a genius. But if u judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.. One doesnt need to know where Arizona is to become a doctor. And.. Unless your name is Google, stop acting like you know everything. =)

It's an Einstein quote. I just keep thinking how different this post would be if we replaced Arizona with Georgia..

No I think hes expressing his confusion as to how the child could even think that he left USA, I dont think he believes Arizona to be a separate nation. "He" being the commenter

In reply to #3 and #11 I don't live in NA or ever visited NA but doesn't the southern part of Arizona border another country? Mexico to be precise - but I have not been taught any of this.

That still doesn't make sense of the commentator's post. Seems they know just about as much geography...seeing as Arizona borders Mexico...

18- you don't have to be "taught" to be in the know. A quick reference to Google shall suffice during these technological times. Here LMGTFY...

You really don't need to know geography to operate on someone as long as you actually know what you are doing

How does common sense help you know geography? Geography is just about memorizing a bunch of information that for many people would be useless.

Doubt he was joking. Americas education system, especially when it comes to geography is frighteningly bad.

I am hopeless at Geography, but I know/recognise the names of most US states, and I live in the UK (I don't know where most of the UK counties are precisely but we tend to talk about places being "near Carlisle" or "a few miles south of Liverpool" rather than "in Cumbria/Lancashire" like Americans would do with states). This is beyond hopeless.

We're talking about a guy who cannot tell what constitutes the country he lives in and what constitutes countries he does not live in. Or a guy who is the master of deadpan comedy.

Presumably the good doctor would have to know how to get to the hospita and so on. Also, this is general knowledge. Kinda makes one look like a dumbarse. Of course, he could be one of those guys who is thick at everything except one special talent...

Don't worry OP, you could have people who are more stupid in your class like me. I would've said "New York baby! Representing my country!"
