    Link: America, This Is Why Your Kids Are Dumb - Well, maybe not 100 percent dumb, but they`re well on their way if these are the books they`re reading.

    How the hell does Snooki have a book? Can she even read? Yes, I`m well aware that she had a shadow author, anyone with half a brain knows that, but really, the girl`s got an IQ so low its only rivaled by Paris Hilton. I fear for my brain cells should I even crack open a copy of her book...

    On second thought, if its in that section, yes, then it explains a lot. I agree...

    "Are americans born stupid or do we have to study for it?"

    that question has been answered.

    No, it`s because people don`t bother using the right you`re. At least those books have proper grammar.

    YES! Finally, a chance to post this photo.

    Ladies and gents, this is a genuine photo taken at a WHS Smiths store. I know it`s genuine because I took it last week!

    I don`t have a problem with teens reading these books, but they`re not what I`d class as "Children`s". Pre-teen maybe, but I don`t think 8 year olds should be reading this kind of thing.

    Although I suppose it`s good that they even CAN read these books. At least they`re not reading Topsy and Tim still.

    Gerrry1of1 Since you have laws that allow marry between cousins i think that is half and half. Half born stupids the other half study to become stupid.
    Obviously there is still some very clever american guy but have to fight so hard.

    Piperfawn- I am guessing that English is not your first language? I have no problem with teens reading that crap- but it would be nice to think they read more widely too.

    madduck i`m a self learner i`ve never study english at school, just french,latin ,anceint greek and a bit of aramaic.All that i know is self learned and in most of case learned right here on IAB. In any case i dare you to send some quotes in a languages you never studied, i don`t pretend the perfection but just that you are comprehensible. In many cases i`ve see people here that don`t understand what people from the same country say.

    I actually enjoy Jersey Shore. I don`t look up to these people, but i find their interactions hilarious. I will admit getting paid to party, drink, etc. is bullpoo. But in the end it is entertainment. Never could I read a book about Snooki though. That girl is retarded.

    @piperfawn: I would like to point out that unless it`s generations of cousins marrying cousins, the children of such a union won`t be adversely affected. In fact, I`m fairly sure I`ve read that if you`re distantly related, it`s beneficial to the child. And even children from unions between half-siblings aren`t all that much in the risk zone. But that`s genetics for you.

    In any case a distance of blood relation between cousins don`t exist. Your cousin is born with the blood of your father`s/mother`s brother or sister.

    Piperfawn- I wasn`t being rude! Honestly- I was just checking. I think it is admirable that you post in another language- and yes, garbled English comes frequently from those who should be truly fluent. You are perfectly comprehensible, it was just the form- I assumed you did not have English first and wanted to check! I am sorry if I offended you- it was not my intention.

    Google tells me they`re from American TV. I don`t understand the significance.
    Should I be assuming they fit into the same category as Paris Hilton and the like?

    @number43

    How can you tell? You must have infallable proof if you would go out of your way to insult people who claim the opposite. For if, by chance, you had no proof and were in fact incorrect in your statement, you would look like such a fool and an insult to your family and country.

    It`s a good thing you clearly know for sure that this is a Canadian store, despite some harrowing clues suggesting otherwise.
