            Actually, the chain was started in Utah. (I know it doesn't make much sense)

              Well, according to Wikipedia, he just started selling his chicken in Utah, but those places weren't called KFC at the time.

                      trust me, most of people in this country can't even trace back where their dogs came from.

                        You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to bullet08 again.
                        Ah, the Gods of +Rep are not smiling today. Nevertheless, that was fantastic...

                            Not stupid, just not aware there is a whole lotta world beyond your borders. Unless you ain't bombing it you don't think about it. Simplistic maybe but not too inaccurate.

                            We know lots about USA - your capital, some state capitals, rivers, mountain ranges, history, famous people, infamous people etc etc.

                            But to not know about the Eiffel Tower is incredulous. The most famous monument in the capital of another G8 country, one with tons of history and achievements to its credit. The most visited country in the world.

                            Here we go then. Tell me about Blois? Or Macon? Or Potsdam? Or Munster? Or Berwick? Or Watchet? Or Torremolinos? Or Gorky?

                            None of these are particularly famous and most people would not know too much about them.

                            Point I am making is that Europeans tend to know lots about famous places beyond there borders whereas Americans seem not to anything much outside their country.

                            I am happy to be proved wrong.

                              Probably thrown by the fact that our monarch is a Queen ( tiara'd type not moustachioed type) and our leader is a clown.

                                Ha! I can trace mine back through the Lee family to one Rollo of Normandy, whose decendants later went on a day-trip across the channel with William, killed Harold at Hastings and went on to provide the Britons with structure, sanitation and a deep and lasting respect for all things Continental - sowing the seeds of the better part of eight centuries of war.

                                OK, so we've got a lot to answer for...
