Okay. I've got a bet going on with my mom.
Okay, so I was born in Seoul, Korea in some sort of army hospital. My father is a US citizen but my mother isn't. Now to become president, you have to be born in the U.S., so I can't become president, right? My mom argues that the hospital I was born in was a U.S. hospital, therefore that is U.S. soil, therefore I was born in the United States. I keep on arguing that although I was born in a U.S. hospital, you have to be born in mainland U.S. (as in one of the 50 states) to be eligible for presidency. Who's right here? My mom also argues that it says "US citizenship" on my birth certificate, therefore I was born in the US. I try to tell her that I'm a naturalised citizen, but she just won't listen (korean stubborness >=|).
Oh, and don't ask why I'm so concerned about my eligibility for presidency :P
