  1. We’re not all oblivious to other parts of the world, and in fact, a lot of us actually love other cultures and parts of the world. I wouldn’t be learning Spanish if I didn’t want to learn about Mexican culture!

  2. I would love to answer this right now, but I just got back from getting my mail, so of course I was shot 14 times in my own driveway by some children who picked up assault rifles down the street at the gun vending machine. I have to go take out a 2nd mortgage on my house to afford the $19 billion emergency room visit.

  3. That we know nothing about European football, its the only sport I follow and I’ve found when I’m in Europe and start talking footy I almost always know more than they do but for some reason there’s this conception that Americans have never even heard of football (soccer over here).

  4. The US is geographically massive. Think of how culturally diverse Europe is. The US is geographically larger, and while it’s not the same level of diversity, it’s not that far off. We have linguistic pockets, accents, local traditions and cultures, liberal bastions and conservative strongholds, etc, etc. It’s a huge country. Even states are not homogenous. NYC is not at all the same as Buffalo. Detroit is completely different than the Upper Peninsula. Miami is very different from Jacksonville. So on, and so forth. Even Americans have no idea how different other parts of the country are.
