Don't Know Much about Geography

Are you smarter than a fifth grader. I watched this show the other day while I was staying with my mom. I've spent a lot of time in school and have an advanced degree but I was totally stumped by some of the questions. There were questions I thought I knew but when the answers were revealed, I was wrong.
Today at work another friend of mine was talking to he son, who is in college, about going to Georgia to look at a car. His son said it's on the eastern side of the state on the line next to South Carolina. My friend gave his son a very hard time saying that all that was on the east side of Georgia was the Atlantic. He rodes his son quite hard and even questioned his investment in the boy's education. the son became frustrated and hung up the phone. We all sat around and had a big laugh at the son's expense. Another friend who overheard the exchanged came up to me a little later with a printed copy of a US map and guess what? If you draw a straight line from Birmingham east, you will run into South Carolina before you get to the Atlantic. I'd bet the boy has the last laugh when his dad discovers that he doesn't know much about geography.
