    Yeah, well ... what the film doesn't show is all the other kids who answered the questions correctly. Nearly all of them were edited out ... because they would have spoiled the flick's "shock factor".

    I'm from Utopia, myself. Very nice country it could have been, weren't it for the likes of Urope and Alas.

    Exactly. There are plenty of students out there who can answer those questions and a few the interviewer hasn't thought of yet..

  9. Jews, Mormons and atheists/agnostics have the best scores. No surprise there. :)

    OK, I get the “shock” factor that this clip is supposed to have by editing out all the kids that answered correctly. However, the exact same kids seem to be giving the wrong answers every time. I have often wondered what these sorts of people think about or do when they are not learning basic information. I also get that not everyone is going to be a genius, but these questions are pretty basic.

    I think the same thing when I see adults on the Jay Leno show’s “Jay Walking”.
     

  12. What's not nice? I'm showing my admiration of Jews, Mormons and atheists/agnostics. Something wrong with this?

    I did not read it that way. IF I WAS WRONG, SORRY!

    Don't be so shocked. These videos are all edited. If it's still on Youtube, I can show you an excellent one displaying American stupidity.

    I understand that they only used the lowest common denominators for their video. I also understand that any of us could have gotten a number of those questions wrong on a bad day. It still doesn't make it any less painful to watch.
     
  16. Some people simply can't pay attention in class, others see no value in learning about history. the important thing is if they are the ones choosing what home you wind up in when you're elderly.

    I thought this thread was about the 80's television show Hunter.

    To be fair they did show some students getting the right answers. But also to be fair, I went to high school with these same kids (or maybe it was their parents) 35 years ago. They are the same today as they were then.

    To be fair one more time, I don't think you can expect a 15 year old to know or care about most of this stuff. They barely know what they had for breakfast. Many of them grow out of it, sadly many of them don't.

    Exactly what I thought before I even scrolled down. This video is painful for me to watch because of that "shock factor."
