    I have heard this very often.

    A common American guy knows very little of the outside world.

    Can you tell why?

    I think it is because most of them don't have any travel experience. To be honest most people haven't been outside of the state they live in. Just ask them a geographic question, you will be surprised by the answers. When we are from a different region, we like to find out everything about the outside world.

    I agree with OOPALL. Most of them never go out of state and when I tell my American friends that I have seen so many places in US, they are very surprised.
    Not to offend anyone but another thing I noticed is, they refer to America as World :rotfl Did you ever notice that? For instance, when they say biggest or largest in the world, it really means biggest and largest in US.

    I agree with you,Gooseberry!But I guess that is the case with us too.
    Probably because they do not have the neccessity to explore other countries for jobs(except Middle east & other european countries) or other stuffs.On the other side most of us travel and explore other countries in the name of jobs or tourism.And all this have started recently.
