While I agree that Americans are generally lazy and stupid (just look at the election results, with nearly half the USA supporting a twit like Romney!) I do not think this points to American laziness...
Im betting that the average American also cannot start a fire without a lighter or matches - despite the fact that 100 years ago, any American would have possessed this knowledge...
We pioneered the assembly line with Ford Motor Company. Then, we slowly began shipping manufacturing jobs abroad, and as a result, there are few manufacturing jobs left. Others, such as the Chinese and Japanese, have excelled and improved upon Ford's ideas of assembly lines, automating much of the process. And they want to share that knowledge with us??
Id say we would be stupid and lazy to NOT take them up on that offer.
