Do Americans have a reputation of being Dumb?
Yes, of course
But is it really like that?
No, absolutely not
See, it's not as simple as drinking water stuff
Let me explain-
What is America?
Consumerism, Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Hollywood, Snoop Dog, Marijuana smoking public, Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton, Berny Sanders, Tim Cook, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, invader of other countries for oil and natural resources and pretending to be Superhero, Entrepreneurship developer, Making businesses out of absolutely nothing inventors, rich country etc etc
I am sure people can add so many more
I can too if I spend a little more time on this :D
The point is America is a rich country, it is a big country, not population wise but geographically as a result it has a lot of space. So they can do stuff in their country that a country like India cannot as we have more people than space :D
Caucasian white people came from Europe who were sick of their traditional systems, so they built America out of little bit of native American people that used to live there.
So they always were challenging the traditional narrative that be a good little boy scout and educate yourself and have a good job and family :D
There's a reason money is the main thing in America not how one earn it.
Let's talk about Kardashian, many Americans might hate it but the truth is they are real representative of America.
Hey, I have huge respect for their unorthodox business IQ, they are basically famous for being famous and noone knows exactly why :D
That's genius :D
Playboy and Porn industry are another great example
That's pure consumerism :D
That's absolutely genius :D
See, it's good for America that so many religious, conservative, high moral countries exist, this give America advantage and make what it is today
There's a saying about America in other countries that American consumerism teach People to sell their parents, children and wife as long as it is good business
It might be little over the top conservative opinion but there's a hint of truth attached to it.
See in most countries in the world, people don't have money, so they go to school to educate themselves, because they don't have money, the schooling system isn't great either but to survive in the harsh reality, they had to apply themselves more in order to get job with good pay and sometimes even that isn't enough
This is basically the story of ordinary people world over
In America, things are little bit different
Everything can be business there hence invention of entrepreneurship spirit
Even drug business has become a great entrepreneurship ideas in America with collusion with major medical and drug companies :D
See everything in America is like that
War is a business
Invading in other countries for oil and natural resources and pretending to be Superhero is a business
So ordinary young Americans have soooooo many opportunities to earn money
Rest of the idiots countries don't have that luxury :D
So why would they graduate or have any interest in higher education
Even those who are very bright like Mark Zuckerberg, knows how to make money without going all the way academically
Even before Mark Zuckerberg, there's so many examples like that
Let's talk about Hollywood
That's big bread earner
And you don't need to be exactly rocket scientist in it
But hey, they are needed to consult for science fiction movie
That's another American genius :D
This is basically the story of every field in America
So why would any young Americans need higher education like idiots from other less developed countries
So when struggling people from these less developed countries see America and see frat boy people, they shake their heads and say, “Dumbass”
But why should these so called dumbasses care what other people from other parts of the world think about them
Money is the winner, these so called dumbasses don't have morality filter like these so called tight neck intelligent people from struggling countries, so they use every opportunity to earn money and struggling intelligent people from developing countries complain and whine about “American dumbness” to feel good about their life
Americans are dumb because they don't need to be academically intelligent like people from other developing countries
Americans are dumb because rest of the world are letting them to be that
Americans are dumb because rest of the world are unsuccessful at capturing wealth despite not being dumb
So maybe academic intelligence has some deficiency as well but hey at least we are not dumb, we don't have money but we aren't dumb and we can be happy and feeling good about ourselves calling Americans dumb
Hence the tag :D
How can one develops his or her sense of humor :
1. Ability to laugh at self
It's amazing how genuinely funny self-deprecatory jokes can be. If you're a serious brooding person who thinks that you're better than the world, forget this genre. But you'll be losing a lot.
2. Being able to take things lightly
This is the foundation from which you can take off into the world of humour. If you usually get worked up over every single little thing, chances are you're going to struggle to crack a joke. Let's face it; you'll be in no mood to think of anything funny.
3. Enjoy being the cause of laughter
Almost every single funny person I've ever met has this trait. There's a certain pride and selflessness that's part of being able to make people laugh. When you get addicted to that 'high', you'll be digging out every opportunity to make people laugh. There're not too many better things in the world than seeing people around you uncontrollably laughing at something funny you said.
4. Educate yourself
The lesser topics you know, the lesser genres of humour you can explore. There's a reason why all people with a great sense of humour are informed and intelligent. It takes much exposure to the outside world to be able to make most jokes. If you're a quiet, silent guy, who likes to shield himself in the darkness of your room, you won't have too much room to play with. Literally.
5. Learn from the experts
Watch humorous movies. Watch stand-up comedies. Watch funny soaps. The trick is not to watch with the ulterior motive of trying to learn the art. I always tell people who want to learn English to avoid watching films with that motive in the back of their head. It's when you truly immerse yourself and enjoy something that your mind automatically picks up certain things. This way, the whole exercise also stops seeming like work.
6. Enjoy conversations and experiment
Face it, you can't say a joke if you don't enjoy conversations. Learn to be open-minded, and talk and listen to people. The more you talk, the better you'll get at it. Similarly, the more you joke, the more you'll discover your area of strength. Experiment. Try various genres. Word play, sarcasm, slapstick ... you'll figure out based on people's reactions what your strength is. The more you play, the better you'll get. Also, remember: There aren't too many things in the world that you cannot joke about.
7. Timing: Strike when the time is right. You need to know when is the opportune moment to unleash the humor Kraken.
8. Quick thinking and Wordplay: "Most important part of English language are punctuations. They are the ones which differentiate 'I helped Uncle Jack, off a horse' from 'I helped Uncle jack off a horse'".
This is my first story

Stop shifting the risk of decision on to something else !
Firstly: What is the case in point?
We often find and depend on someone we consider as more "Mature", More "Intelligent", More "Experienced", More "Powerful"..we depend on these individuals or identities for our multiple needs.
Case In Point:
Intelligent - The girl/guy who tops or our seniors in school or a prof
Experienced - Guy/gal who has done more sales/marketing/tech etc in a Job or in some other professional work related environment.
Powerful - God, someone who we haven't seen - We depend on him for most of our stuff, specially critical moments when we think we have failed. Horoscope for marriages.
Our parents, our brothers, some experienced start up guy, some experienced director. This confirms the basic point that we do this activity where we try and find someone who we treat higher than us and then get directions from that person/identity.
Secondly: Why does it happen?
We often try and minimize risk at our behalf while taking a decision.
And hence when it comes to a career related decision, we ask someone whom we consider higher/experienced in the same field.
Same goes for Life, Marriage etc - we try and depend on some non visible identity i.e. God or Horoscope to tell us if the outcome of the result will be good or bad.
We often transfer the outcome of a decision or action to an someone else outer to us, and often delay or change course of our decision.
Thirdly: What should be done ideally?
We need to take full responsibility of our actions and should obviously look out for advice but should take decision or action basis our cost benefit analysis and not through someone else's prism.
What are the real life possibility of alien life existence?
This is a very hard question to answer because answer is not a simple one but a complex one. Before I go into the existence of elien, first let us think how can we even find it, I mean what are the obstacles standing in our way.
PROBLEM 1: Even if we find elien, it probably not something we expect to see in movies.
Well, in reality, sorry to disappointment everyone, even if we find elien, it will be very different. It could be single cell organism.
It could be like bacteria.
It could be something that we couldn't see through our naked eye.
Above mentioned picture is the rare example of sun's photos in a various wavelength which can not be seen through the naked eyes.
It could be more than fourth dimension beings (yes, it is possible in theory).
PROBLEM 2: This universe is so huge that even if we find evidence of elien life, it is beyond our mortal lifetime to do something about it. Because even tiny portions of the universe is beyond our comprehension.
So then the question is - is there no way to find out truth? Absolutely, not. Here's the recent science discovery suggest -
Every one of us is made of atoms that once part of the exploding star, including atomic carbon, nitrogen and oxygen- some of the fundamental ingredients of life. Over billions of years, these ingredients condense to form gas clouds, new stars and planets which means that the ingredients therefore life beyond earth is scattered across the universe. Earlier this year, a team of scientists estimated that about 4.5 billion years ago at least one fifth of Mars was covered in an ocean more than 450 feet. Any signs of life could be swam in those waters could there be hidden in the Martian soil. But water is not enough, you also need time. As it happened, a study in last October discovered that water had existed on Mars 200 million years longer than previously anticipated. What more there was life on earth same time as some of the lakes on Mars.
Astroides and comets are key formation of life on earth, scientists think. In particular, comet impacts, according to a news report in last August, likely caused amino acids to combine and form building block of life. From what we know about solar system formation, there are other comets in other planetary systems that could be doing the same thing right now. Jupiter's tiny moon Europa is scattered with brown veins that are suspected to show where warmer, dirtier liquid water in the moon's mantle seeped through its crust. Europa could harper more water than earth which is why both American and Europe are investing hundreds of millions of dollars into designs for future missions that would search life beneath its surface. Beyond Europa there is Saturn's moon Euceladus, which scientists confirms this month houses a giant, global ocean beneath its outer shell. Like Europa, Euceladus’s ocean is ideal place where life beyond earth could live. Even more convincing evidence for life on Euceladus was included in two papers published in earlier this year. They strongly suggest that hydrothermal vents - the same kind that may have spawned life on earth - seem to be lining up on moon's ocean floors. In addition to those on Europa and Euceladus, vast subsurface oceans could exist at least dozen objects in our solar system, planetary scientists suspect. The problem of detecting life on any of these reaching the watery mantle that exist hundreds of miles underground. Besides Earth, Saturn's largest moon Titan is the only body in the solar system with lakes on its surface. These lakes would not spawn similar life to Earth because they are made of liquid methane, not water. However, earlier this year a group at Cornell showed how methane-based, oxygen-free living cells could exist on Titan. It's possible that life can only form and thrive on Earth-like planets, which would mean our only chance of detecting aliens is on planets beyond our solar system. Last July, scientists detected an Earth-like planet 1,400 light-years away. Its size, orbit, sun, and age provide the "opportunity for life to arise somewhere on the surface ... should all the necessary ingredients and conditions for life on this planet [exist]," one scientist said.The famous Drake equation allows us to estimate how many alien civilizations might exist in the Milky Way. It looks like this: N=R*(fp)(ne)(fl)(fi)(fc)L, with each variable defined below. With basic statistics, this equation suggests there are potentially thousands, even millions, of alien civilizations out there.
R*=How fast star forms in our galaxy.
fp=The percentages of star that have galaxy.
ne=Number of Earth like planets around each stars that has planets.
fl=The percentages of earth like planets that develop life.
fc=The percentages of intelligent species the go on to create technology that could be detected by a outside civilization like ours. One example of this is radio signal.
L=The average number of years the advance civilization release detectable signals.
If there are millions of intelligent alien civilizations out there, many ask, then why haven't we heard from them? It could be that our home galaxy, the Milky Way, is not an entirely hospitable galaxy for life, according to a scientific report last month that suggests other galaxies in the universe could host 10,000x more habitable planets than the Milky Way.We're all made of heavy atoms forged in the explosions of supermassive stars. This not only connects us to the universe, but highlights the possibility of alien life, explains famed astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium, Neil deGrasse Tyson: "These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems — stars with orbiting planets. And those planets now have the ingredients for life itself."
