Here's another reason why people hate America -- other countries can't even afford to play our games.

"Who Wants to be a Millionaire" just got picked up in Afghanistan, where the prize of one million Afghani is equal to roughly $20,000.

But comparatively speaking, 20K is enough to make you rich in Afghanistan -- the average citizen makes about $340 a year.

Stumped? Your lifelines are 50/50, ask the audience, or send express parchment to a friend.
