My point is 26% of people on here trolled (at least from the US), or at least a very large percentage of that number did, and therefore you have an inflated number voting for the hilarious "I didn't know" category.
What inflated number? The extraordinairy thing here is that 26% of the Americans didn't know about it opposed to 1-2% of people from other countries. No one was arguing that the actual number of Americans that voted for it was higher. For you to even think that is idiotic.
And even then, for your argument to work, you would still have to explain why the percentage of people from other countries who voted for it, is extremely low.

There is also the possibility that in some of the visits the tracking of IP location is in error or was done by proxy, etc. That would skew the location. Google or some other method/database for location.

What is it about the American mind that is vastly different from the rest of the world? Are you suggesting only Americans would find it humorous to select that option? Why?

It just reinforces what most of the international members already know about many of the American members on this site.
Seriously dude ... you are entitled to your anti-American bigotry but it's rather obvious that people trolled the poll. It's impossible for 1/3 of them to be on the internet and not have heard of the plane. You WANT this poll to be correct. Common sense says ... the poll results aren't possible.
See? This is how stupid you are. I said nothing of the sort. If anything, I was trying to explain percentages to someone who not only apparently couldn't grasp the concept, but also had no point to go along with it. You somehow implied in an earlier post that I mustn't understand percentages because,
He's suggesting that the Americans who took the poll, didn't take the poll seriously, and picked a retarded answer on purpose for whatever reason. There are a lot of trolls, believe it or not. This site, with some of the posts I've seen over the years, has got to have a fairly high percentage of them.
Oh, and btw, yes, 4chan could easily get 750 people to troll together, and this site has some of the most insane members, posting some of the most unbelievable nonsense, it literally HAS to be trolling.
"extraordinairy" isn't a word btw. That's what spell check is for. Hint: all the red underlined words are misspelled. Just a heads up.
I tried to explain that earlier, if you had been actually reading my posts, by figuring people outside the US didn't have the same humor as we do. Different cultures etc.
It's also quite hilarious when people from other countries are so eager to call all us Americans so stupid. The irony, and the obvious inferiority complex you all must have is saddening, and I'll admit, a little funny too. LOL
