Today, my teenage daughter tried to convince me that the UK is a part of Canada. After I pulled out a map to prove her wrong, she got all angry and defensive, and said that nobody's perfect at "geometry". My daughter is an idiot. FML

Idiots are not exclusive to America.

Nice to know you think your daughter is an idiot OP, obviously you didn't spend some quality time with her teaching her the basics. So shame on you.

#34, why did you put that as a response to #1?

@34 perhaps she should pay more attention in school. That's not OPs fault.

Regardless, op should definately keep the child-safety covers on all the electricity outlets in the house for a few more years. Just to be safe.

The circumference of a circle is located where?

Talking of idiots #60, where were you when they taught the word "Definitely"?

Autocorrect. It's a curse lol. Idiot seems a bit harsh tho, anger issues? Waging a war on spelling errors where ever they may rear their ugly head?

She probably just learned about the commonwealth and didn't bother to listen to the details.

So you're telling me autocorrect changed definitely to definately? I don't believe you! And even if that were the case, it means that you have spelled it improperly more times than not.

This is why people think Americans are stupid. #swag #yolo #cray

#2 I liked your unedited comment. You know, without the hashtags. Shame. I'll get a shovel too.

Idiots are not exclusive to America.

No, but you have to admit, they are commonly found here.

Of course that's true, but Canadian's and several European countries' citizens stereotype about Americans is that we aren't that bright. It does mostly have to do with the average person's poor geography skills, especially among Europeans. I've ask around.

#115 Wait, what? Half of America has never even left their state, and have the Geography skills of a six-year-old.

Where do you get the statistic that "Half of Americans have never left their state?" Because that definitely sounds true.

#122 - Way to pull statistics out of your ass, lol.

Have her grades not been reflecting that fact? I mean idiot isn't the word.

Grades don't reflect how much you know about the subject, just how well you can parrot back what the teacher said on the tests. I saw so many fellow students repeat without understanding

@#22 finally!!! Someone get this person a medal and throw them a parade! I hate when people compare grades to intellect. Thank you for finally saying it.

Finally someone who gets that! Grades and intellect are not the same. A while back, I had a classmate with straight A's ask if China was in Europe. They just show how well the students can remember what the teacher says.

Exactly. I know some people that are book smart, but they don't have ANY common sense; which is, in a way, almost more important than getting good grades.

Oh wow. Well at least they are kind of connected through the commonwealth(?) :/

Yeah, except there's this tiny pond called the Atlantic separating the two countries.

Learning to deal with failure while she's young will help her grow up humble.

Don't know much about history. Don't know much geometry. Don't know much about science books. Don't know much about the French I took.

All I do know is I love you. And I know that if you love me too, what a wonderful world this would be.

Maybe she confused it with British Columbia.

Still doesn't explain why she said geometry.

Or the fact that there is place called London in Canada too

Well, u reproduced but please don't let her do the same mistake.. Do ur part to help the make the world a better place to live ;P

You saved all of 4 letters by typing those stupid shortcuts. What was the point of that?

Using text talk doesn't make you intelligent at all.

He did unless you missed the part about the map

I liked this because your spelling mistake made it look witty.
