I just came across this, I hope you think it's as funny as I did.

 

If you're talking tech with Americans, you may want to avoid using any jargon.

A recent study found that many Americans are lost when it comes to tech-related terms, with 11% in a survey saying that they thought HTML — a language that is used to create websites — was a sexually transmitted disease.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

I laughed out loud... :lmao:

 

On another TV show I saw once some reporters went around with a world map which was turned upside down. 70% of the people questioned could not identify which continent they were on.
