If I didn’t have anything to do, I would collect these pearls of idiocy and publish a guide to « Understanding the ***** (and each other country in the world) from the point of view of ignorant outsiders ». Or I could title it : « Everything you have always thought that was totally misinformed about country X and that I will now clarify for you ». I cannot tell you how many times someone has come up to me and said, I cannot understand why in the US [fill in by most distorted stupid notion of any of a hundred different things]. Then I am reminded once more of how my personality does not like teaching morons. I want intellectual, cultural, moral elites as students, thank you very much. Sigh. Will I ever be a real good teacher, if morons drive me up the wall ?
