    Yeah, his aikido is strong, but I have $10 on Steven Segal with a win by cock-punch.

    And Asriel, I know what you said wasn't directed at me, but I agree with you completely, stupid people abound in this country.

    Case in point: I took a biological anthropology class in college where we learned about the similarities between great apes/other primates and ourselves. We traced the evolutionary lineage from the last common ancestor of great apes to the earliest humans, and saw countless amounts of supporting physical evidence in books, videos, etc.

    A few hours before the final exam, I was studying with a friend and some others from the class. I started discussing my awe in evolution with a young lady I was studying with. She said with utmost seriousness that she didn't believe a word of it (of what we had learned the ENTIRE SEMESTER), saying "I didn't come from no monkey, I came from God!"

    My mind went numb.

    Stupid people are everywhere man. Fundamentaists in all countries don't want anything to do with science or progress in general. As a rule of thumb though, our stupid people are exceptionally stupid.

    Stupid people might be everywhere, but I'm gonna have to agree with asriel.

    There are a fuckload of stupid people in America.

    Thankfully there are less of them in New York.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of stupid people in the UK too. You guys just have a hell of a lot more people in general.

    We have Fox news, Bill Oriely, Rush Limbaugh, and a whole team of dedicated professionals who constantly strive to drain the intelligence from our populace. Thanks to them, it seems to be working.

    Between the USA and the UK or in the whole world? Whole world I'd have to say any middle eastern country has the highest amount of fundamentalists.
