My friend Avril gave me this vid’s link in a comment to an earlier blog entry, and then we both posted it in our Facebook profiles.
This video makes me want to hide in shame as an American. I haven’t traveled that much, but come on! The news is now on the frakking web and most of it free! Also, how many of these people have paid attention in school? Most can’t point out countries on a map. Oh, and it gets better. Some can’t tell how many sides there are to a triangle. The reporter didn’t ask them something difficult, such as what is an isosceles or a hypoteneuse.
The attempts to tell the reporter who Tony Blair is—priceless!
