I'm a US citizen and I see the humor in this because it's somewhat true. The chunk of us who are aware poke fun at those who aren't. That includes our news media, because more than half the time, they're about as insightful and thought provoking as the Jersey Shore.
2011-06-28 20:47:17
you have a point ;-)

You're wrong Connie, John Wayne and a few US troops won the two wars.
2011-06-27 22:22:14
WW 2 – 1 September 1939 – 1945 Britain, France, Australia & New Zealand declared war on Germany on 3 September, and Canada on 10 September 1939. The US proclaimed its neutrality on 5 September. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941. The US and Britain declared war on Japan. Due to the US violating their neutrality (good for the Allies), Germany, and Italy, declared war on the US on 11 December 1941. The US immediately responded by declaring war on the two Axis powers. First American forces arrived in Britain 26 January 1941 – more than two years after the war started!! The end of the European theatre of war: 8 May 1945. The end of the Japanese theatre of war: 2 September 1945. As an aside: After the war ended Canada had the 4th largest Air Force and the 3rd largest surface fleet in the world. Not bad for a country with the same population as the States of New York or California. Maybe crazy american, you should go back to school to study history - preferably in Canada or Europe - where you won't be brainwashed, but given facts.

The US "BAILED THE WORLD OUT OF 2 WORLD WARS"!! I think maybe countries would disagree with you - that they contribute ie Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand...) WW 1 (The Great War) 1914 – 1918 The official outbreak of WW l was 1 August 1914. The United States entered the war three years after it started. They declared war on Germany on 6 April 1917; they declared war on Austro-Hungary on 7 December 1917. The war officially ended (Armistice Day) 11 November 1918. . The US had originally declared itself neutral; but after Germany drew the US to declare war, they joined the Allies who had been fighting for three years. They participated in the war for 1 ½ years only. But, by bringing in their troops, the war ended sooner, thus fewer casualties. Before the Americans joined, British, French and Commonwealth troops had been very busy fighting and dying in major battles. Canadian troops participated in 53 battles. Here are some examples of battles fought before American troops arrived: SECOND BATTLE OF YPRES – 22 April to 5 May 1915 – Canadians, British & French troops – 11 SITES. Ypres was to witness the first use of gas in warfare at the beginning of the Second Battle of Ypres, and the first use of flame-throwers. During the second battle of Ypres, the Canadian Army surgeon Captain John McCrae wrote “In Flanders Fields”. BATTLE OF ST. JULIEN – 24 April to 4 May 1915 – Canadian troops This was the first major appearance for Canadian troops on a European battlefield. “The Canadians established a reputation as a formidable fighting force. Congratulatory messages were cabled by the British Prime Minister to Canada’s Prime Minister. There were heavy losses for Canada’s little force whose men had been civilians only several months before with no idea of fighting a war: 6036 casualties – 2000 dead. BATTLE FOR VIMY RIDGE – 9-12 April 1917 – Canadian troops There were 32,000 men who took Vimy Ridge: 3598 died out of 10,602 casualties. The Canadian troops’ success at Vimy marked a profound turning-point for the Allies. A year and a half later the Great War was over.

Maybe because there are better life standards in North America than somewhere like Mexico? God, if you can't figure out, you're a typical American.
2011-01-17 16:37:53
i find this map really funny and the comments even more entertaining. some of you people are taking this way too seriously. america is made up of hte world, so naturally its harder for all of those nationalities, religions, viewpoints to mesh. stereotypes will always exist along with hypocritical, ignorant people who take silly maps and turn it into some all out jab at a nation who bailed the world out of 2 world wars lol!
2010-03-24 07:44:59
very true.
2009-07-04 17:35:32
No problem Fuck heads, next time you're invaded by another country, or some disease or natural disaster strikes your country, please don't ask U.S for help.
2009-01-04 18:50:52
You need to travel outside your marvelous country and see for yourself instead of believing whatever CNN tells you. And FYI "American blood and treasure" is being invested in world domination, not donated in some grand messianic gesture.
2009-01-04 18:46:50
Like Connie said, the answer to your last sentence is Canada. Canada also fosters its multiculturalism, meaning you can be Canadian AND keep your original identity. Can YOUR policemen wear their religious headdress?
2009-01-03 12:10:03
Actually patito, Native Americans came, most probably, from Mongolia. They entered North America via the Bering Strait, which was land once upon a time. They then worked their way down over thousands of years to the end of South America. Inuits (the group that stayed north) have strong mongolian features. As to your last paragraph, the answer is CANADA ;-)
2009-01-03 12:02:35
Righto patito. Are you sure you are Texan and not a Canuck?
2009-01-03 08:04:09
You DO have a sense of humour, Bob1! I am astounded!
2009-01-03 06:17:44
I say gov, a bit harsh on the Yanks what! Reaaly, Americans are definitely not isolationists...not since at least WW II. Now go have another spot of tea and ponder the errors of you ways, yes indeed ;-) ;-)
2008-12-26 05:39:07
So awesome, so true... love it!
2008-11-21 11:45:45
im from canada and i don't get the mouse head part prolly should be moose head like the other dude said but its funny forsure and ill prolly call someone a mouse head just for kicks
2008-09-15 21:31:39
hueta, kaput vsei vashei amerike!!!
2008-09-10 16:32:08
2 things 1) what the fuck is a mousehead? 2) In the even that mousehead is a spelling error, and is supposed to be moosehead, what the fuck is a moosehead? Is it, someone obsessed with Moose? Because I don't think Canadians are. In fact they are not...this needs a relevant insult on it. Fuckface.
2008-09-05 04:45:00
Malaysia is not a country, Niks, it's a place in a CS Lewis novel. silly.
2008-09-04 14:03:57
im from Malaysia and i dont even see it on the map.. which is rather accurate because most people have no idea where Malaysia is.
2008-08-31 04:39:38
AMEN Dr. Scientist!!!!! A M E R I C A ... LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2008-08-31 01:37:24
No doubt a United States resident did make this. I think we have become very aware of others thoughts about us without realizing that we help keep most of the world free. People come here because we accept idiots and those of high education equally. The United States of America is a great place. That said so are Canada, All the countries of South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. It should not be us versus them we are PEOPLE and that is what matters.
2008-08-31 01:30:17
I love these discussions about Bush. He was constitutionally elected TWICE. If we would learn a bit about our own law we would know that popular vote does not elect a president. The Electoral Collage twice gave victory to George W Bush like it or not. Get over it and let's fix the educational system so that we are more aware of our world.
2008-08-24 03:00:45
This picture is a giggle at best. The message board on the other hand is terrifying. Sad to see the disconnect of humans.
2008-08-21 03:46:13
As a true conservative here in the US, I cannot wait for the day when we actually are 'isolationist'. I'm sick to death of American blood and treasure being spent on peoples that couldn't care less; likewise I'm sick of the carnage of all nationalities. As an aside, I really don't know anyone (here in the US) that is this dimwitted; I've been to a great many of those nations and I'm an average guy. We do tend to look inwards rather than to the rest of the world; likely because we have so much here that most of us will never get the time to really enjoy all of our own nation, let alone the rest of the world. I can understand that many nations that are smaller than some of our states might take offense at this, but perhaps they'll get over it the next time they need a helping hand from their Uncle. Quite a lot of tall poppy syndrome going around, that much is certain.
2008-08-15 08:57:07
but at least they teach us how to spell 'college'
2008-08-04 23:07:37
LOL TCS, "guffaw. rather!" LOL
2008-08-04 11:56:36
wow. you got all of these dead on! even the "don't go here" sign haha. it's weird i think about 80% of the things of the map. all i can think is brainwash
2008-08-02 13:31:44
that's possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.
2008-07-28 02:08:39
Ya know why I think most individual Americans are so "stupid"? It's because they all moved here from other countries. The "average American" isn't American at all. They've all moved here from some other country. Hence the "Give me your poor, your weak, your huddled masses". We are a haven made of the conglomerate of all the other countries refuse. (I live in America, was born here, and will probably die here as well.) I saw this pic at one point earlier and laughed because of what the world thought of us in their own ignorance. I saw this posted and all the comments that followed and thought I would post as well. At this point I'm tired of this sick joke. You know what would end up being funny though? If an American was actually the one who had made this. (Definition of Irony)
2008-06-30 00:48:56
Most people have no control over were they are born or their nationality, all they can do is try to be open minded and not believie every their governemt presents as the truth about them selfs or others. Most people dont hate each other until some tells them to.
2008-06-27 03:09:44
Love the (most of) the pics!
2008-06-27 03:09:01
AMEN!
2008-04-15 00:00:57
I suppose this was meant to be an insult and, judging by the hysterical tone of most commenters I'm right, but it is funny. Good work. Love, Ignorant American
2008-04-14 12:01:20
I do, in NC. I was born in Mexico but then moved here when I was 10 or so. You?
2008-04-14 11:53:45
So, where do you live, Bob 1 ? Have been reading your posts for a while...usually fairly well thought out, I must say..had figured you lived somewhere in the states...no?
2008-04-14 10:42:21
You didn't really address my points. You can list all of the subgroups that exist in the United states, but the united states is a HUGE country which spans the whole width of a continent, an island in the middle of the pacific, and a random piece of land completely separate from the main country. You would EXPECT a huge variety of people to live in such a big place, even if that place has a very low heterogeneity. Without knowing the relative densities of any of those given groups, as well as their distribution, (not to mention the densities/distributions in other countries) any statement comparing the heterogeneity between any two countries is utterly meaningless. I for one have not met ANY of half the kinds of people you mentioned.... and I think there are PLENTY of countries with similarly rich social and cultural textures. Many African and South American countries have an incredible amount of diversity, from native tribes to tourism to immigrants. And I hear that many European countries have similar diversity. ...... But anyway, this originally started out as a discussion of the average awareness among Americans of worldly affairs compared to that of people from other countries. None of the variables you mentioned (religion, nationality, etc) have much influence on this, and I'm sure the average individual from any of those groups is very ignorant about the beliefs and practices of all the other groups.
2008-04-14 10:28:56
How about both? lol... seriously though, there should be more focus on getting children to WANT to learn and think. The way the world works now, there is very little incentive to do so. The desire to learn and enjoy new experiences is far too underrated, that's why we end up with half the people in the US not accepting evolution.
2008-04-14 10:26:47
All of the above, Bob 1...except for the Native Americans ( Navajo, Puebla, Zuni, Hopi, Sioux, etc ) all the rest of us came here from somewhere else..we got folks from every European country.. brits and micks and frogs and spics and krauts and wops and every thing else..we got Asians and Africans and Arabs..we got Catholics,Mormons, Moslems, Jews, Hindus, Hari Khrisnas, and at least forty kinds of Protestants, from High Church Episcopalians to snake-handlin', foot-washin', trine-emmersion, washed-in-the-blood Southern Baptists..we got lots of rich folks, lots of poor folks, and a bunch of folks in the middle..Press One for English, Toca Dos para Espanol...we got brilliant intellectuals and bare-foot , ridge-runnin' suff-dippin' hill billies ...we got symphony orchestras, blue grass banjos, Tejano conjunto, rap, blues, jazz and rock and roll... You tell me what other nation has as rich a social and cultural texture as the United States of America...
2008-04-14 10:21:11
I AM NOT AN AMERICAN!! If this map WAS made by an American it would have been blank above the 49th parallel ( That's the long strait line across the top of your country ) I've traveled thoughout the States and have met American collage students living 50 miles from the border that had NO CLUE what is in Canada! The American school system teaches NOTHING about the rest of the world.
2008-04-14 10:16:32
Are they really stupid or are they ignorant? There is a difference. We are all the product of our own 'edumecation' system. If ignorance really is bliss, then this may account for the apparent happiness of most US citizens!!
2008-04-14 09:55:20
Have any of you heard about the North American Union?African Union,Arabian Union, Ereo-Union Union,Oceanic Union.NEW WORLD ORDER!ONE GOVERMENT/ONE POWER,ONE RULE. MICRO CHIPS. GOOGLE OR YOU TUBE. THIS STUFF IS REAL. I'n not a dem & never would be a repulsive opps republican,I think everyone should get along and things should be done for one and all. LINK::: asia-union.org SCARRY SHIT!
2008-04-14 09:51:21
I know, that's why I said "once and a half" :P
2008-04-14 09:28:06
hi bob1,I like your style, but I do have to say George wasn't elected the first time.great information for Greg Palast.(LONG time ago LITTLE TO LATE ),but he did a documentary full of info.GOOGLE HIM.
2008-04-14 09:20:21
PS. What exactly do you mean by "heterogeneous" anyway? Do you mean differences in skin color, ethnicity, nationality, belief systems, education, class, language, culture, all of them, or what?
2008-04-14 09:16:54
"especially since we probably have the highest level of population heterogeneity of any country on earth".... on what basis are you making that statement? I sure hear that a lot from americans, but honestly I've never heard anyone give me good reasons for believing that. I guess if you take the entire country as a whole, but the US is the 3rd or 4th biggest country in the world, so you would EXPECT it to be very heterogeneous if you look at the country as a whole. I think the vast majority of the US is fairly homogeneous compared to other areas of the world of a similar size. Anyway, I completely agree with the rest of your post, and "american's" appropriation of the term "america" and "american" used to be one of my pet peeves.
2008-04-14 09:03:58
Thing is, there are a tad over three hundred million people in the US..hard to generalize about that many folks, and especially since we probably have the highest level of population heterogeneity of any country on earth..there really isn't any such thing as an 'average' American...one more thing..Canadians and Mexicans are also Americans..so are folks from Nicaragua and Guatemala, Columbia and Venezuela, Chile and Argentina, Brazil and Peru..etc etc..
2008-04-14 08:43:38
Easy pickin's, that's why.
2008-04-14 08:35:24
Nobody's saying the US is bad, just that americans are stupid.
2008-04-14 08:32:29
If America is so bad, why are more people trying to come here than leaving here to go someplace else?
2008-04-14 08:12:25
As a resident of the blue bit in the bottom right corner I can laugh at this knowing that I am far enough away from the loonies to feel relatively safe. Having spoken to quite a few Americans (of the US species) and hearing that Australia is often expected to be somewhere in Europe, I would not be surprised if this map was a relatively accurate account of the geographic knowledge of the average US citizen.
2008-04-14 07:31:46
If only we WERE isolationists, the rest of the world wouldn't also be taking the piss out of us for our folie ˆ deux-dyhead...
2008-04-14 07:19:22
I'm English, so I'm quite enjoying seeing you taking the piss out of yourselves (your media is shouting "America Sucks' louder than the rest of the world at the moment). You're the masters of stereotypes and now you're getting some pretty harsh ones of your own. You're all perceived as a bunch of fat brain-dead trigger-happy isolationists. I'm saying this in a posh stuttery accent while painfully trying to sip on my cup of tea without my bad teeth and oversized jaw getting in the way. Guffaw! Rather! etc...
2008-04-14 07:00:54
All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities.It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence,a condition to which they are quickly addicted."
2008-04-14 06:03:06
Political post = minus vote. You're welcome.
2008-04-14 05:45:40
You can't fully blame Bush. After all, he WAS elected once and a half. Blame all the people who voted for him and the ones who didn't vote. There's a reason why stupid people can become presidents.
2008-04-14 05:26:10
It is sad that the worlds opinion of us has declined so much. Thanks a lot George W. Your days are numbered.
2008-04-14 05:20:27
I think they forgot the igloos and reindeer in Canda
2008-04-14 04:07:16
Priceless. Trendy anti-American sentiment with a spelling mistake a 10 year old wouldn't make.
2008-04-14 02:00:04
You forgot to mention the elephants and the turtles holding it all up! How can you forget something so important?
2008-04-14 01:44:36
Uuuhh...I believe that should be "Mooseheads" rather than "Mouseheads"...
2008-04-14 01:43:58
Mouse heads?
2008-04-14 01:39:24
Very true!
