i
t;s a joke....
So was mine.

Unfortunately the real joke is education in the USA.

I knew a guy, college degree, well above average intelligence who actually thought WW2 was about stopping Hitler from killing Jews (which in a roundabout way has some truth to it) he also wasn't sure which side the Soviets were on, again kind of understandable given the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. The really funny part is what he said when I showed surprise. It was something like:

"We didn't really have history, where you learn who did what to who, it was more like historical appreciation. You may know all this stuff about what people did but you don't know how to appreciate it."

I blame liberal arts colleges.

When Reed College in Portland, the University of Arizona, and Rutgers all started offering Underwater Basket Weaving as a real course, I knew our education system was in peril.
