WHY DID I NOT KNOW THIS ??

Just a little tale of getting knocked off my high horse of obviously knowing everything
  1. I like to think I know stuff ok
  2. But apparently it seems that I do not
  3. I only just found out THE OTHER DAY that Washington DC isn't in the state Washington
  4. I realise now that this is a really stupid thing not to know
    I had never really given it a second thought before, like safe in my false knowledge
  5. But why did no one ever tell me ??
    I'm half American, and I've spent loads of time in the U.S. It doesn't make sense !!!
  6. Also I did US politics before I dropped out of sixth form so there's literally no excuse for me not knowing
    And I've seen House of Cards lol
  7. I don't even want to think about all the other stuff literally everyone knows except me
  8. The shame.
  9. Oh well I know like pretty much everything else ever so it's fine
