Vox only hires The Smartest Thinkers™. Here’s all the proof you need:

There’s something so satisfying about a JuiceVox-er’s sneering condescension. Satisfying for us, that is.

According to @Max_Fisher, Europe isn't a place. Or something. Seriously, what is he even saying here? https://t.co/PLzrCRCLNb

Well, for one thing, he’s saying he doesn’t know what “geography” is:

I don't get this. He's not talking geography. Dude, this is why Vox is a joke "@Max_Fisher: Geography is hard pic.twitter.com/LwgjpnDzH0

Ugh, nothing to do with geography. Success breeds recruits. #thesmartestminds RT @Max_Fisher: Geography is hard pic.twitter.com/nGabLM1ekL

@Max_Fisher What does geography have to do w/what he said? You don't think taking that town in face of allied air will be recruiting boon?

Via @RBPundit: Does @Max_Fisher doubt ISIL taking Kabani in face of allied air would be a worldwide recruiting boon? pic.twitter.com/XibWSFufzk

.@DrewMTips It's obvious @Max_Fisher didn't think his comment through. Like nearly everything else he writes.

That’s just par for the course at Vox.

Checkmate, Gaza Bridge. RT @Max_Fisher: Geography is hard pic.twitter.com/AGXJBVY00H

Oh, snap! Vox will never live that one down. We’ll make sure of it.

@NathanWurtzel @NoahCRothman maybe if there were a bridge

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) October 9, 2014

@Max_Fisher gaza bridge

— Spergon Wynn (@SpergonWynn) October 9, 2014

@lachlan Is that anything like the Bridge between Gaza and the West Bank? @Max_Fisher

Point being that @Max_Fisher knows almost nothing about anything but chooses to lecture everyone about everything. #TheVoxWay

Kobani is a Syrian town close to the Turkish border. And …

Part of Turkey is in Europe, bordering Bulgaria and Greece. Graham was right. RT @Max_Fisher: Geography is hard pic.twitter.com/CXqUAUlVoU

D’oh!

Facts are jejune RT @MelissaTweets: RT @RBPundit: Yes, folks. @VoxDotCom's Foreign Policy guy doesn't know that part of Turkey is in Europe.

— Phineas Fahrquar (@irishspy) October 9, 2014

Aren’t they, though?

Indeed http://t.co/hn1IWKLufT RT @Max_Fisher: Geography is hard pic.twitter.com/TpgNdRFKep

Yes, it is. @Max_Fisher pic.twitter.com/WiB3KabkEO

Fisher could’ve avoided this embarrassment pretty easily.

@NoahCRothman There's that magic thing called "checking a map." Vox should try it sometime.

— Phineas Fahrquar (@irishspy) October 9, 2014

Yes, but …

To be fair to @Max_Fisher, this is the most updated map they have at Vox pic.twitter.com/oK6pX6u3uV

— Matthew (@Matthops82) October 9, 2014

Meanwhile, at Vox, staffers are consulting their map to determine how hard geography really is. pic.twitter.com/BG1B3sB3a6

Poor Vox. Someday, they’ll catch up with the rest of us! Maybe. Probably not.

Congrats, @Max_Fisher. pic.twitter.com/UgQOgwDkL5

I think "Days" may be the wrong measure here https://t.co/nglECURh4z

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) October 9, 2014

“Seconds” would be more appropriate.

In any event, despite Fisher being wrong yet again, he has taught us a very important lesson:

Writers for Vox should never be condescending towards another person about geography.
