America is a weird place when you think about it -and if you've never thought about it before, then this video might make you recognize just how weird it is. For example with all of our smart phones and internet use did you know 32 million Americans are illiterate? Or despite the fact that you always hear about the religious right America is actually getting less religious overall?

Check out more strange facts about America over at TopTenz or just check out the video above.

Complete nonsense. I was specifically talking about those with a job, not Welfare anything... And my point isn't that the poor aren't poor, but that people who you'd say are doing okay just by looking at them, are counted as below the poverty line in the US, but wouldn't be counted as such, elsewhere.

"America comes off looking bad on poverty only because the poverty level in the US is set higher than anywhere else. You can have a couple cars, a nice house, TVs in every room, secure job, etc., and still be counted as impoverished."

Let's start there. Where did you read this tripe? Show us factual information that backs up this nonsense.
