I'm a Minnesotan. That's close enough ain't it?

Ok, I've actually got some Canadian in me. And I've visited Ontario for a grand 5 hours :D! I'd visit again, but its still quite a drive and I need to get me a passport now :?.

Happy Canada Day anyways ^_^!

Hmm, no Canada Day logo for google.com, but there is for google.ca. If that's the case, then I bet google.ca won't have anything for July 4th. Wait, then why the hell does google.com get a special logo for the chinese new year? Does Google hate Canadians?

I decided to test how much Americans know. So I took the following map with me to the mall and asked random people to point to Canada on this map

Image

The results:

- 12 people thought I was selling a GPS system.
- 15 people threatened me with death if I so much as look at them.
- 3 people threatened to turn me into security as a terrorist threat for asking funny questions
- 5 people were astounded that Greenland is as large as America (I didn't bother correcting them)
- 8 people told me Canada is misspelled.
- 4 people pointed to Russia for some unknown reason
- 2 people pointed to Australia
- 1 person correctly pointed to Canada

So there you have it, 2% of Americans know enough to correctly identify Canada on a world map. Which is actually far better results than I expected.

"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

Good results, but eh, I think the vote of 43 people out of 50 to ban h2O is more disturbing.
