Look, we’ve all been there. You decide to unleash your intellectual prowess on social media, a place universally revered for its high standards of intelligence. You’ve got a geography nugget that you’re sure will wow the masses. Only, it doesn’t. You didn’t just drop the ball; you threw it into another country—and mislabeled that country to boot.
Welcome to the Internet’s Hall of Shame, also known as r/facepalm, where even a basic grasp of geography can feel like an elective course at Harvard. Strap in, because the worldviews you’re about to see are flat-out hilarious—and not in the flat-earther way.
Some people can barely point out their own state on a map, yet they’re online asserting that Africa is a country or that the Eiffel Tower is in London. It’s almost poetic, really, the way these folks manage to be so confidently wrong.
