    I've seen that one before and it's really funny, but seriously I don't believe that all Americans are stupid, just a few are.

    Oh, no doubt ... I'm sure plenty of the people they talked to were able to answer many of the questions ... but it is a satirical portrayal of a fact ... the fact being America is very insular, in comparison to other nations.

    It is. I saw a video made by students in my school, asking what they thought "Evil" was. Half of them said goth kids, the other half said athiests and gays.

    Ah my fellow Americans..... so stupid.
    This is what happens when half the national budget goes to military spending and the schools get crap $.
    The dumber the people, the easier the lies are believed, the less questions are asked and the more wars we will fight, so scary is the future of America, were has all the common sense gone?

    but i do admit i would have missed like 3 of the questions [​IMG]

    So many stupid people walkin on our world these days [​IMG]

    They just changed Australia's name and nobody notices, how stupid can a person be.

    Einstein once said:
    "There are 2 things that are infinite, the Universe and the Human Stupidity".

    Sadly those people are real.

    What's scary is they have nukes.

    But in fairness, the same nation was smart enough to invent the nuke, and land on the moon.

    Canadians kids are generally twice as smart as American kids. Sadly, that just puts us second from the last on the world scale of industrial countries. I would rather have Japans academic stats. Then again, our kids aren't committing suicide regularly. Although occasionally they can go off and kill other kids in rampages.

    But Terry Goodkind (an American) said it best in Wizard's First rule. People are stupid.

    If I rounded up 100 of my fellow neighbours, I would be actually shocked if on the first 100 I found one that was actually smart.

    The world is full of the people in the video, people like Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, they occur very rarely.

    There are douchebags everywhere in the world...in any country.
    Seriously, I knew more than half of those questions - those guys are just idiots.
    I'm sure there were correct people too, they just decided to leave them out of the video [​IMG]

    I think he meant ScuberSteve as an exception.
