Not sure if you actually read Ayers' book, but he was being sarcastic when he "confessed" to writing that book.

Kinda messed up how a lot of hospitals are named St. Judes...

Actually, that's exactly why they're named St. Judes. "Jude became associated with desperate situations because of a letter he wrote to the Churches of the East. In it he says that the faithful must keep going even in harsh or difficult circumstances." http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/st-jude-10-things-you-2641266#ixzz2nsaTmoNC

Actually, Jude (name of my church) became the patron saint of lost causes because he was the last on the list of disciples. So when people were praying for help and thought the saints could help, he was always the last one. If no other saints had helped you, he was your last hope.

Maybe the Dr. of Churros is not an American. The bombing of Pearl Harbor wouldn't necessarily be that important to, say, Mexicans.

I didn't have to google it (albeit only because I remember having to ask someone why all the flags were flying at half-mast when I was in America one December 7th) but I still didn't recognise the quote. It's not exactly taught in schools over here...

ahhh...so it's part of a quote! Would never have guessed even though I knew the importance of the date! Tried everything to do with the event, wasted too much time! lol

I'm assuming Dr Churros isn't American, Pearl Harbour is really only known in the UK for the film, it's not really a key moment you get taught about in the war.

Agreed ... wow! FDR's quote here is one that was heard around the world ... and is one of the most memorable of all time because of the event in question. I am not an American, but America's entering WWII how and when it did was pivotal to world history, and massively significant to every living person on and since that date. The world today is arguably shaped more by this one event than any other single identifiable moment of history. You should know this quote!

However, Pearl Harbor is one of the largest reason for us to get involved in the war. If the Japanese had not attacked, then the war may have turned out differently, because we would have entered later.

you do realize that water is dihydrogen oxide right? it means 2 hydrogens and one oxygen.. FFS

The dihydrogen monoxide thing was an experiment to see exactly how guillible people (by which I mean Americans) are, specifically about hazards and dangers in food, cleaning products, etc. They created a petition to BAN WATER, by calling it dihydrogen monoxide and listing TOTALLY TRUE facts about it (http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html; see the awesome whole site!). They took it to some earthy-crunchy, love-the-environment festival (not that there is anything wrong with earthy-crunchy, love-the-environment festivals) and practically everyone signed it with suitable moral outrage. The moral of the story was that information can be presented in a way to get people to discard their common sense and critical thinking. The joke sort of lives on; if you ever get someone spouting conspiracy theories about chemtrails or fluoride or whatever, show them the site, let them get all worked up, and then explain that it's only water. If we're lucky, they will have a small epiphany.

P.S. Please, Americans – don't be offended. I'm one too! P.P.S. I also don't mean to start a debate about chemtrails or fluoride; I just wanted to give a couple of examples of conspiracy theories that are, shall we say, not widely considered to be of much merit.
