So anyway, my mother confronted me that I'm not being part of the family because of my college work and research, and she demands it to change instantly. So, that being said, I'm now "Forbidden" to take any exams or go to science labs. Oh well, she's paying for me to fail now.

People's general knowledge of nations is pretty terrible. Someone in my class didn't know where Central America is. I mean, it's right in the name too.

The US doesn't teach geography. I learnt this in 1st-3rd grade in Austria and 4th grade in new york when I had a british teacher (RIP)

A conversation I've actually had.

Enlightened Stranger: Yeah, I didn't care much for my driving instructor. Some Asian guy.

Me: Oh. Was he Chinese or Japanese or something?

Enlightened Stranger: Neither. I already told you. He was Asian.

Dude are you sure, I swear it's in Siberia. Well, that's a better guess than most cause a lot of people don't know Siberia's a place.

I gave this junior a ride home today from school. We got into what we wanted to do after graduation and she said she wanted to 'make, like, tons of money but just chill' and not have to do any work. I wished her good luck.

Willing to bet she thinks Asia is a country.

Reminds me of my high school U.S. History class when a girl couldn't locate Washington D.C. or LA on a map. The teacher had to direct her for a few moments until she finally found it.

Fortunately, the girl was good looking, so she may have something to rely on other than intelligence.

Low intelligence can be a bit of a turnoff for me but it isn't the end all be all.

Still can't get over boring. Nothing is less attractive than a boring person when it comes to personality.

A perfect date to me would be lounging about in sweatpants, ordering take out and watching low grade horror movies.

"Low intelligence" is definitely a turn off for me. I'm not sure if I would automatically call someone who couldn't locate LA or D.C. on a map unintelligent. Geography typically isn't taught in U.S. schools anymore, so that's something you'd have to discover on your own.

From my own experiences, boring is all relative. I'm sure many people would find my hobbies and interests 'boring', just as I would find others hobbies to be boring. If a person is not willing to pursue others hobbies and try to have a good time, than that would most certainly be a turn off for me.

I hear ya on this one, SFW. I would love to date a girl who *gasp* picked up a non-fiction book from time to time (or any other piece of intellectually stimulating reading material).

Boring is not necessarily the subject matter. It's how the conversation is delivered. I've met people who can tell me about their latest grocery shopping trip and I find myself enamored with the story because they know how to tell it.

I really like this girl and all, but she is a brutal texter

She told me she doesn't really text a lot and her friend said she's a bit awkward over text, so I'm not worried at all, but damn, it is so hard to keep a conversation going. I have to try soooooo hard to keep it going
