so so so sad.

* About 11 percent of young citizens of the U.S. couldn't even locate the U.S. on a map.

*Despite the threat of war in Iraq and the daily reports of suicide bombers in Israel, less than 15 percent of the young U.S. citizens could locate either country.

*Particularly humiliating was that all countries were better able to identify the U.S. population than many young U.S. citizens. Within the U.S., almost one-third said that population was between one billion and two billion; the answer is 289 million.

*On average, fewer than 25 percent of young people worldwide could locate Israel on the map. Only about 20 percent could identify hotspots like Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq.

thanks for proving my piont absurd.

anyways this was a international study done by National Geographic. It is not about the rest of the world hating us. I have no idea why you would bring that up.

and, as my "location" might indicate, I live in D.C. good job.

Hey man, be cool  Reply with quote  

don't be making fun of any americans, it's defiling to the whole world because we're the best there is, and George Bush is working his ass off to make sure we can stay free and not die a horrid life in the clutches of that idiot, Sadam, plus, when you make fun of americans, we bounce right back and make fun of Canadians! (no, not really, just wanted to say that)
The world is not dumb my friend, you are. Just calm down, it will get better.

hahahahahahahahahahahahah

"The world is not dumb my friend, you are. "

what is your guy's problem. I posted a link to an international study showing the horrible geographic skills most kids worldwide have. Yes they are dumb. at least in geography. (for the record I took the test and missed 1 question). Anyways insulting me does not affect the results of the survey now does it?

:roll: wow I just thought it was an interesting survey that people might like to read. Why does anyone post anything here? why do people complain about eminem or bling bling rap? not going to change it by talking here. Hell why do newspapers and news shows ever report things? they aren't changing anything by telling people stuff.

Is it possible Absurd and Dr. Q are the dumbest posters on this site...

August gave you a link to survey! He wanted you to check it out and offer your thoughts on the findings. That's it. Why the corny display of mindless patriotism?

You two make Americans look like illiterate thugs. You two don't read well do you?

Well, that would be a question, not an answer... you mindless nothing.

^^Fucking ridiculous. So in other words, keep quiet about anything you think is wrong... sit back and ignore your problems because they'll eventually not only go away, but your situation will improve!

And your comment about not making fun of Americans because we're better than everyone is just as ignorant.

the point of a forum is to discuss topics of interest. August is obviously interested in this.(as am i). If you are not then go tot the next topic. end of story.

people like you who entertain themselves playing devils advocate at the expense of others attempts to engage in a difficult conversation regarding "uncomfortable" topics make me fuckin sick.

all that talk about topics being too serious or too political need be deaded now.

i think that this is what i come here for
i think that there is more to the story than just "us vs. them"
and I think that the youth of today are far too complacent , and far to comfortable.(just plain un-informed, and frankly scared to death)

I appreiciate this kind of discussion you slow motherfucker.

catch up bitch.

Yeah, these two probably want to go to Bovine University when they grow up. Seriously though, that shit is disturbing. I took it and got them all right, but seriously....how can you not know where Israel/Russia/Argentina is? Come on, that is just fucked up. People don't hate America because we're the most 'bad ass', it's because we have a history of destroying other people's cultures, telling them what is right and wrong, massacring their people, and shoving our values down their throats. It's obvious from this poll that I ought to move to Scandinavia, christ. At least they know where their own country is...I once met a kid who thought Africa was a country...that shit is scary.

These two fellows, are retards. Please go give G Dub a rimmie and spare us your stupidity. I appreciated August posting this.

Whohoo, we're better than Germany!!


When you think about it, it doesn't really matter if the common citizen knows where Iraq is. Let's just hope the US military does when they go there to fight. ;)
