Sigh. Unfortunately many in the general public in the US are so ignorant about basic geography it's disgusting. Even many who are supposedly educated, still have big gaps in world geography knowledge. (To be fair though, I blame the public education system...in many states, geography is an elective!)

I guess I was lucky, my parents gave me a globe and a world atlas when I was a kid to rummage through.
