    Why is this even unlocked? I mean, seriously?

    Besides, historical ignorance, in my experience, isn't strictly an American malady.

    Re: Suggestion Box Offal

    It's unlocked because it's for discussions which start in the suggestion boxes.

    Not for discussions which start in the suggestion boxes and then are condemned to never see the light of day.

    What are you, some kind of cruel asshole?

    I don't think there is a single Canadian who doesn't know about it. It is the terrifying shadow that keeps the populace firmly under the boot of the Big Brother.

    Then you should have written it like so:

    Otherwise it seems the knowledge is what is general, not the Americans.



    Also, yes. Yes we are.
    ...But it's probably just me.

    On the off chance you're not actually being a smartass like you should be, "Also, yes. Yes we are." was referring to the post directly above mine.

    Re: Suggestion Box Offal

    I personally think all this "Americans don't know shit about history" nonsense is getting a little tiresome. People in general don't know that much about history, because it's not vital to biological function like food and breathable air. A little historical ignorance isn't going to kill anyone. Political ignorance, on the other hand, is something that needs to die in a fire. If you're going to allow everyone to vote, you should at least make sure everyone knows something about government and politics. Too many people have swayed the nation for petty reasons. I think some kind of politics/government credits should be required to graduate from school!
