Hey, lay off Peyton, we were schoolmates.

He definately is smarter than the average human. He took more than a full load while in college, graduated early, honor roll, and came back for his senior year turning down NFL money.

Peyton is without a doubt, THE best regular season QB of all-time.

That would be aïeux which is oldish French for ancestors. Now that Canada is newly part of North America, what are the chances we'll see you visiting Canada's National Igloo?

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.

It's official, US adults are dumber than the average one celled amoeba.

I did learn something from that video that I didn't know before. AD stands for "after death".

Holy crap are Americans stupid!

I just watched another of that guy's videos. He thought he was more intelligent that his interviewees, when they didn't know the price that one ounce of gold was trading for. When one guy got the question wrong, the brilliant interviewer offered him a "consolidation" prize. It seems even the interviewer is dumber than the average amoeba! :pound:

My guess is that ''consolidation'' prize was part of the joke: he was making even more fun of his victim.

You be the judge. It's the first person, right around 50 seconds into the video. Doesn't seem like part of the joke.

Well...I guess you are right...again. Are you sure you're not Canadian? You seem too smart to be American. Come clean, Ricky. Tell us the truth.

I took a Canadian iq test and scored in the 5th percentile. I'm too dumb to be a Canadian. I'm just an average, slightly smarter than an amoeba, American.

In all honesty, Canadians are a pretty ignorant lot...very similar to Americans. The only reason the average Canadian has a more rounded education than the average Gringo, is that we have many immigrants from North Africa, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, China, and South America. Most of these people arrive here very well educated, even though they end up doing menial jobs.

The high school class I attended in Ottawa was like the UN, it was so diverse. Being required from kindergarten to 13th grade (Yes! there is such a thing there as grade 13.) to learn French, because there are two official languages in Canada, was a good thing. I wish there was more emphasis at an early stage on learning languages in USA.

HUGE problem, less and less quality, detailed and reliable news sources - AND so many have the attention span of a flea that they aren't even paying attention to even the few media sources that are reasonably good ones. So, most get their news - that is IF they even watch or read them - from sound-bite, online short analyses of dubious value and sources. And as much of the media is a brain-dead as their audiences, I'd say global warming (oops, I mean, Climate Change) and N. Korea might be lesser threats. This is how we ended up with the "Fourth Stooge" in the White House. And, yes, legalizing Mary Jane needs to be a HIGH priority! :roll:
