DID YOU KNOW...

That the United States is the world's most educated country? See the "educational attainment" table. (It's possible some mini-states like Luxembourg are excluded from the list.) As of 2000, the average years of education of the adult population over 25 stood at:

United States: 12.25

United Kingdom: 9.35

Germany: 9.75

Italy: 7.00

France: 8.37

Japan:

Israel:

Afghanistan: 1.14

Russia: 10.49

India: 4.77

Pakistan: 2.45

Indonesia: 4.71

Brazil: 4.56

Mexico: 6.73

Iraq: 4.34

This may explain a good deal of the trans-Atlantic gap. Americans are smart enough to see through socialism, Europeans aren't. It's interesting that the Russians, too, are more educated than the western Europeans.
