9 out of 10 college graduates can't identify either states or European countries.

The one that labled Tennessee as Chicago had me rolling around on the floor.

 

And yess! I can name most of the countries on the European map. Some have changed names and borders in the last few years, so I don't know them all.

I'd like to see ANY American identify the counties in Great Britan............. :unsure: Just saying.....

 

 

Um, I think this was satire? I.e. an attempt at humor. I don't believe it was an intended to challenge the geograpical abilities of the populace. :wacko:

Haven't been able to name the PM of Canada since Pierre Trudeau. -_- I doubt 99.99 percent of Americans could name a shire or define the boundaries of the countries composing the U.K., either. What is shameful is the number of Americans who couldn't fill in the map of the U.S. correctly!

It's humorous for sure, but not satire. And check out the thread of the Americans trying to fill in European countries,. Even funnier.

Humorous, and to be expected outside one's own borders. But:

 

In this day and age, where incredible information is available at your fingertips, round the clock, why do so many know so much less about the world than their ancestors......

 

And te Brits are far better in this regard than we are.

Daughter and son in law live in D.C.

 

Wife explains to me that they took an international flight to Hawaii for Thanksgiving (His side of the family).

 

I asked why an international flight?

 

Because they went to Hawaii!

 

 

 

No the wife isn't a blonde.....
