On international shit talk

Do you think the U.S. population on the whole is less intelligent than other countries? I’m never sure how to respond when I meet someone abroad who stereotypes Americans. Are they right?

Don’t be ridiculous. The U.S. population is not less intelligent. It’s just louder, and the extra volume has a tendency to accentuate the less sophisticated among us. So what? Don’t let a little international shit talk get you down.

The world is full of people with chips on their shoulder, and it’s always best just to ignore them. You’re not the one with something to prove, and time spent abroad is too short to spend arguing with assholes.
