I think the real issue here is that others like to generalize Americans. You know how we are all fat and lazy. Everyone I know knows Geography very well. But you can't change the opinions of those who are prejudiced against us.  :cm:

Ikr. Like the OP wasn't smart enough to know that the videos are just from a TV show which purposely show the dumbest people to increase ratings

A comedy show where the dumbest answers were collected from the most dim-witted kids (or possibly actors) for a comedic montage is an appropriate general representation of all of the US. Good to know!

yeah you can make any population of people look stupid if you only show the clips of the dumbest people in the group. like, i could easily find a large portion of muslims who think shariah should be implemented and that terrorist attacks are sometimes justified and just ask a question like " why do muslims think violence is essential to their religion?" 

 

it isnt, but when you're prejudiced it is simple to manufacture evidence to validate your prejudice

OP i hope you realize all these shows selected everyone who got the questions wrong...those like 20 def don't represent the rest of us. There's no need to generalize. 

 

I always got good grades in geo, it's pretty easy. Some people just forget stuff. Surely you don't immediatley remember everything, do you OP?
