What is with today's youth?

At the flower show yesterday I got the following question from a guy in his early 20s:

"Are Scotland, Ireland and Italy in the same country?"

Sadly, he was serious. When I replied that they were all separate countries in Europe, his reply was:

"Oh, they're in Europe? I didn't know. I feel kinda stupid."

Sheesh you should have told him to get a "Smart Globe" like your 6 year old niece. She spends eons pointing this wand and learning names, locations, and statistics around the world. She takes after her Auntie! XO Kristin
