I'm always amazed at how so many people know so little about the world they live in. While it would be quite the feat to be familiar with the cultures of every corner of the globe, many people simply don't care what goes on outside of their own lives. This global lack of a human connection really bothers me and it prevents humanity from working together to solve the world's problems.
To highlight this point, I have included a couple short clips from The Onion News Network, a collection of videos based on the satirical Onion Newspaper, started in my home town Madison, Wisconsin. Represent. America's finest news source always knows how to put things into perspective.
