    Dear America,
    Please think before answering questions, asked by some Australian guy on the street. Chances are if you don`t think you will end up looking stupid on Australian TV.

    Signed,
    An embarrassed American.

    P.S Even if history class was boring, It would make you look smart if you paid attention.


    Seriously I just lost my faith in my country, if they keep this up, I`m moving to Europe.

    Yea, a lot of people in the US are stupid; but then again there are a lot that aren`t either. The same goes for every other country as well, so go ahead and live in your small world thinking you`re better than everyone else :D ...but aside from that I thought it was funny.

    A Black Man, Or a Woman?

    Of course some Americans are stupid. But so are people from every other country. I`m sure they just editted out all the people who actually answered things correctly.

    It was still funny anyway though. :)

    Most of these people were probably asked to say the worst answers they could think of. I`m an American and I knew the answers most of the time.
    And the country starting with U was a trick question. Most Americans don`t spell out the entire name United States of America. We just call it either USA or America. Therefore, we think of our nation as starting with A for America.
    And really, what other nation starts with U? I don`t know one, and if there was one it`s probably a very small nation.

    How about uruguay? its not too far from you, maybe uganda? Uzbekistan? Ukraine? you know the one next to russia? United Arab Emirates?

    sigh, its not your fault, its only what you are taught in schools.

    Everyone in Austalia thinks America are very stupid too.

    I`m sure that if you go on the streets here in Europe and ask stuff about the USA, you will end up with a pretty similar clip.

    Except the one about the berlin wall, the eifel tower and KFC, man, those people were stupid, not to forget the triangle one neither.

    But anyway, there are stupid people everywhere if you just record long enough you`ll find a whole lot.

    You would get something like that in a lot of the countries in the world. Stick a camera in someone`s face and ask them questions, and some are bound to slip up and make a mistake. Others are just stupid. America doesn`t have the sole rights on stupidity.

    The fact is that we see more Americans on TV than any other nation so we`re bound to see more of their stupidity. I do think there is something wrong with the American school system but no-one can seriously believe that most Americans couldn`t tell you how many sides there are on a triangle.

    Except the thing is if you ask Europeans about USA thats asking an entire continent facts about one single country. Its not really the same as asking people from one country things about the entire rest of the planet . Personally I think the thing with the map was pretty ridiculous.

    uh... how many sides does a triangle have? 4? wait, no, no sides. 1.

    omg... too much to even take in. sometimes it`s not even funny how stupid those people are as much as it`s just disgusting.

    Well, if he thinks we should invade, I think we should too.

    Why Australians are stupid.

    Honestly I don`t see how this makes Australians stupid... But Americans are the funniest people I know. Under the English of course. The English accent amps up their jokes by 200%.

    Countrys that start with U:
    Uruguay
    Uzbekistan
    Ukraine
    Uganda

    Lets see a Australian come up with one of those off the top of their heads with a camera shoved in your face and some crazy man using mind tricks on you. Huh, Huh! I would like to see that.

    And people, Honestly, Stop bagging on America. We have a dumb ass president, and half our country is related to each other. (South) So feel sorry for us. And common, You can`t judge a country of 300,000,000 people just by walking down the street one day.

    Now I`m not saying all American`s are smart... A lot of us are stupid (See Victim for details). But that doesn`t make the whole country stupid.

    Also, there are only 7 countries beginning with U, with the obvious one being United Kingdom. Then there`s Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, the US, Uruguay, and to quote borat, non-nice individuals uzbekistan.

    no, i didnt think of those offhand in the 2 seconds or so they gave the people, but i checked wikipedia and i did know all those countries (and also that they weren`t an island in place of australia)... and the only two i think are even forgivable for not knowing are uganda and uzbekistan. the rest are kind of a big deal.

Not JUST the south, people everywhere are eff`ing stupid and they continue to get even stupider. I think, it`s the technology. It`s making everyone lazy asses where they don`t have to think.

On another note, a few hillbillies, thugs, wannabe gangstas, general sub class americans are not going to remember much from school due to either teachers passing them just to get them in the real world or they flat out dropped out and did so many mind altering things that it fizzled out. Those are the targets for countries trying to poke fun at the United States of America. Misfortune upon you nay sayers! Alright, I`m done sounding like a nut or loon. Whichever you prefer. :-)

    Americans aren`t stupid, they`re uneducated. The average education given in our high school`s are meager at best. Though the people shown throughout this video are not prime examples of the average American. They obviously wouldn`t have shown you the people who`d answered correctly. And honesty, Australia can go phuck itself. I`ve never known Australia to be stereotypically genius, so what are they ranting about? You have kangaroos. That`s all anyone will ever associate you with because your a stupid little pussy island.

    Americans aren`t stupid. People in general are stupid. Phuck off and die.

    That`s just the problem, you try and think. It`s cute and all, but you don`t really get anywhere. You`ve never met the VAST majority of our nation. Shut up about what you don`t know and do something useful with your life and chase cars on the freeway. Don`t be scared of technology. It`s never done anything other than boost our means of education.

    And really, who gives a flying phucking hell about the Prime Minister of Australia? There`s not one page to be read of the history of Australia in our text books and I personally could care less if that ever changed. I don`t who ruled in the past and I don`t know who`s running it now. All I know is that every question that man asked was pointless and will never affect my life in any way. All I`m ever going to be concerned with is cigarettes, music, sex, and food.

    Most Americans are clueless about anything that happens outside their own borders, that`s a fact. When I lived over there I got asked all the time if English was my 1st language and if I wore a grass skirt at home, I was born in New Zealand not Papua New Guinea for gods sake!!!

    That, my friends, is why we SHOULD HAVE SEPERATED FROM THE SOUTH IN THE FIRST PLACE. Or just quite possible interview the NORTH. Hell, at my school, at least 85% of us are A students, with the other 15% B students. And how the hell do you not know about the wars the USA has fought in, and how the hell didn`t you know that the United Kingdom started with a frigging U. The southern portion of the United States, you really are a descrace to all of us. >_<

    Okay- First I would like to point out that guy is not a reporter. Second I`m not saying Americans are stupid but they do on average score 20 points lower on an Australian IQ test than the average Aussie. (Australian IQ tests do not include anything like Australian history or anything like that.) Also- Their public school system is crap and very little about the outside world reaches Americans. The news reports what people want to hear and more importantly what the government wants to hear.
    I have a special fascination with human beings so I look at Australians and English people in the same objective manner.
    (It`s still funny though. I pissed myself laughing when I saw it on TV. CHASER`S RULE.)

    Just because you look like a phucking God-damned cave woman and you can`t make friends with anyone in their right mind doesn`t mean that any other Americans are anything like that. Would everyone please remove their heads from their asses? Please?

    You`re close enough. And though it`s not directed towards me as an individual, it is directed toward the country I live in. It`s just sad that you all blindly assume that all Americans are stupid based on this shi-tty humor and whatever the hell else you`ve heard. It`s just as bad as assuming all Arabs are terrorists and all women can`t drive. It`s just time to quit being so damn simple-minded.

    Norwegian here:
    A friend working at the tourist information, once met an American male that demanded his money back.
    He came all the way to Norway to see the midnight sun,just to find out it`s was the same sun.
    Yep.
    And a friend of mine studying in the states, once got asked if Norwegian females had a 9 month pregnancy like American females.
    Yep.
    And one time a mate of mine told me that every may 17, (when Norwegians graduate they dress up in red suits to celebrate)Americans ask why, and was told this was the Norwegian government way of publically punishing comunists.
    So the American group got all excited and got in line to take photos.
    Yep.
    I`ve been to the states, I`ve dated an American,and yes I`m sad to say that most Americans I`ve met have been very ignorant.
    Do not trust the system to teach you about the world, open you eyes.
    Americans are very polite people, and it`s sad that they have such a horrid reputation.

    I bet if an American TV show host went out and asked Australians/Europeans simple questions, and edited the tape, he could make them look like a bunch of idiots as well. If people actually believe this is a representation of an average American you`re just as stupid as these people are.

    Geez, so they edited a tape and probably told people what to say and this is considered entertainment? Anyone can act stupid and tape it, but no one will truly laugh. But I guess if you add derogatory statements aimed at a particular country then it`s considered funny. Geez those Australians! They really showed us, why, we don`t even know how many sides there r in a triangle. Oh but wait... you guys are a part of the British commonwealth. And the UK always comes to US for support in war! That`s right, even your benefectors get owned by our SUPERIOR nation. So you go edit out your tapes and pass all the cue cards you want. I guess even asswhipes can dream.

    And also, you shouldn`t get pissed off with some Australians or even Australia itself for having a laugh at you. Yes it`s biased, but can you honestly say you`ve never made fun of anyone, or any country because of what you believed they were like.

    It`s just a joke, like you have jokes at others expense. So relax.

    And for all those who genuinly think that`a general cover of the American iq should realise they`re mistaken. Just becuase you weren`t shown anyone who gave the right answer doesn`t mean anywere given.

    Some of those questions were also relativly manipulative. Like the Buddhist monk thing. Sometimes by including the answer in the question your brain eliminates that as a possible answer.

    And that Kurgastan(?) thing. I certainly wouldn`t know where it it or how powerful it was, but if someone I trusted to lead my country told me that it was a bad dangerous place I might be inclined to consider it dangerous too

    You know what`s funny? Disscussions like this:

    - America kind of sucks for this and that reason
    - American: no! yóu suck! <insults and swearing> <harsh statements about other countries and their inhabitants> <more insults and repeated swearing>
    - <arguments against the statements above, completely silencing the American>
    - American (baffled, so after a long silence): Um, um, it don`t matter! We kick your buttocks! We kick everybody`s buttocks cause we have a strong military!

    And thus the day is saved by the US military once again... They don`t have to wín any wars, just being around and fighting in some is enough! Who cares if they make fools of themselves? Americans will still believe in them since they need them to win discussions!

    These are also the same people who express that the American people think they`re better than any other. Yet right here on this thread you act as if you`re superior to Americans. Double-standard, anyone?

    ZoKtorR, you couldn`t be more wrong. People who make statements like that about our military and country are ignorant and solid proof that there are idiots like that in the USA. You believing that person reflects the stupidity.

    I just quoted an imaginary discussion. I never said "all" Americans talk like that. But I do think a very large number of them do. (Note: I didn`t say "percentage".) Just enough so that people can compose funny videos like this anytime.

    By the way, on this thread alone, I`ve seen at least two discussions that went just like this...

    anyone else think that if we rounded up the yanks in that video and killed them all the average intelligence level of the world would go up?
    I`m not saying all americans are stupid because I know some bloody smart ones but suffice it to say of all the dumb comments, statements I`ve heard in my life 90% have arrived with "made in the USA" attached (the other 10% are from one of the girls I live with... she isn`t dumb(I mean that she really isn`t) she`s `special`... honestly.
    the fact remains that the american public school system is a pile of crud, your president by all laws of natural selection should have eliminated himself from the gene pool decades ago (but then ours is a complete fool too), and some of you really are thick as pigsh.it....
    you`re very friendly though.... well all the ones I`ve met personally were even when they were thick.
    so on the whole my verdict is America = Tim nice but dim

    Wow, one guy didn`t know how many sides a triangle has. There are some real idiots in every country. Oh, and I knew the answer to about 99% of his questions, and I`m from the so called "SOUTH"..lol.

    Then again, I was an honor student all through school.

    Did anyone else notice that while they were naming countries the host goes "New Zealand". Wow how smart, that would be like one of us going "Canada" which is right there at us. Am I the only one that caught that? heheh

    If you went anywhere in the world and ask about the other side of the world...I`d say 90% of people would get the questions wrong.

    LOL at stupid people the world over.

    Jesus Christ! I`ve always heard that Americans are stupid but this just confirms it. It`s frightening & infuriating that they don`t have a clue about anything outside their borders and the fact that people will support that idiot Bush over anything just shows that they are just as stupid as he is. I`m a 20 yr old girl and i could answer every question and i have never been to college or university! I`ve never felt so proud to be British.

    While I would agree the people in the video are ignorant, that is not the same thing as saying they are stupid. Ignorance is a surmountable affliction. Stupidity, alas, is genetic. Judging by the comments left regarding this video, I`d say there is hope for most of you.

    "Wow, talk about hypocrisy. I`ve read many comments here left by people all over the world that are barely legible. The spelling and grammar are horrific. These are the same people who judge Americans as stupid? That`s comedy GOLD!"

    Hypocrisy? You are calling people stupid when you are stupid yourself. How the hell knowing YOUR language related to their intelligence? I bet you don`t know every phucking language in the world so that would, and you said this, make you dumb as phuck!

    I couldn`t bare to watch much of that, it was too painful.

    I`m sure for every person interviewed there were several others who came up with sensible answers who were simply edited out. If you have ever put data collected from questionnaires into a spreadsheet, you`ll know never to underestimate the stupidity of mankind. You are always gonna find some morons if your sample size is big enough.

    Last point, I know what John Howard looks like, but I doubt a lot of people would know his name let alone what he looks like. How many australians, americans or other people could pick out the Chinese leader? And he`s in charge of a 1/6 of the world`s population.

    Hey Zoktor, you can have "about 99%" of anything genius. If I answer 49 out of 50 questions thats close enough to 98/99% of the questions. Try not to fry your brain on taking things so literal.

    Umm... I`m pretty sure that you do need a 100 questions to have 99% of them right. Otherwise, you need to be able to have questions "half right", for instance. 49 out of 50 never makes 99%. 49,5 out of 50 would, but that sounds a bit silly, don`t you think? (I can`t believe I actually had to point this one out)

    But ok, by "around 99%" could be meant "most of them". Jeez, I was just pointing out the absurdity of the number. And I am not what you call a "dumb" European. For your information, and I only say this cause it feels necessary to do so, I`m an civil engineering student. And also what you would call "straight A" student in high school. I suggest you don`t start going around calling people dumb without knowing them well enough. Since, as I believe slippery meant to say, doing that would make you no better than the people giving dumb answers in this video.

    "Umm... I`m pretty sure that you do need a 100 questions to have 99% of them right."

    no you don`t. You could argue that the example given was mathmatically poor as 49 out of 50 wouldn`t translate into 99% exactly but it was only a rought example. As was the initial remark of 99% and not given as a mathmatically accurate statement of the amount of questions there were

    Thus, as I just said, mathematically it was NOT right but "roughly" (which is not mathematical) 49 over 50, being 98% (look, I just calculated it for you), can be considered equal to 99%.
    Can we drop this? I think we`re slightly off track.

    "Most of these people were probably asked to say the worst answers they could think of. I`m an American and I knew the answers most of the time.
    And the country starting with U was a trick question. Most Americans don`t spell out the entire name United States of America. We just call it either USA or America. Therefore, we think of our nation as starting with A for America.
    And really, what other nation starts with U? I don`t know one, and if there was one it`s probably a very small nation."


    and you think USA doesnt begin with a U. Your not doing a very good job of redeeming Americans

    B-| Gee, thanks George "Dubya" Bush for not fixing our education system like you said you would, no instead you wanted to "play" war games.

    You know I`m tired of (on here) when people start pointing fingers saying the USA is stupid look at this and that, that that is when everyone from the USA who isn`t in the South starts pointing fingers. I don`t know what your history teachers taught you (or English teachers for that matter) but the United in United States means we are supposed to stick together not break apart. It`s just really heartbreaking when I see this done. This whole thing going on the the world is nothing but High School crap I swear! One person doesn`t like the way you look or religion you preach or whatever then the turn on you. Can`t this whole world just group up stop with all the name calling and so what if another person isn`t in the same religion as you.

    First I have to say...VERY FUNNY

    Second, to be fair, if someone were to ask these questions to a fairly small sampling of people from most countries, they may get similiar results.

    I would like to believe that I am fairly intelligent, but I will admit that I either wasn`t sure, or had no idea, on some of these. To simply say "American`s are stupid" and truly believe it, based on this, is pretty ignorant.

    That being said, some of those people (American aside) are really stooooopid. When he showed them the map with Australia labled as different places..too funny and sad.

    I have to say this to all the American`s (which I am as well) that are getting so upset by this.

    One of the more popular tv shows on here is the Daily Show. Some of their best stuff is very similiar to this clip. They probably did edit out all of the correct answers, making the people being interviewed seem dumber then they are (heh, God I hope so)

    This was funny, and was at America`s expense..and thats okay. I can only hope that if I am ever in that type of situation, I will do a better job with the questions...

    As someone who has worked with film, I have got to say that first of all, most of that was most definately edited. Especially since some of you say that this is a show similar to the Daily Show-- trust me, it`s edited. Even news programs of the highest standards edit their footage to get a certain viewpoint across.

    However, even though I am an American, I certainly believe that a lot of people are that stupid. Not necessarily "a triangle has four-sides" stupid (some probably are), but people these days just aren`t as aware of current events. People in many other countries do have higher education standards than the US, and it`s absolutely disgusting. But hey, what are you going to do?

    Oh for God`s sake. Sure they have a lot of bad answers but you have to wonder how many good answers they edited out! And that last question is unfair. Most people evn said that they hadn`t heard of it. I think that anyone being interviewed for some kind of TV show would say yes to supporting the president. Nobody would say no to that because they don`t want to look unpatriotic. And I apologize for the stupid Americans (4 sides to a triangle-WTF??) but most of us aren`t that stupid. How many of you here can name every country in the Axis of Evil without looking it up? I`ll bet that if you asked enough people in the UK, you could get enough wrong answers to make it look funny. If you asked some people in Austraila who George Bush is, some of them would actually get it wrong! Hell, I`ll bet if you interviewed 1,000,000 English people, you would get about 10 people who don`t know who Tony Blair is. If you put these 10 people in a video, it would make all of England look bad.

    Continuing: That`s what happened here. Some Americans are just plain stupid. I`ll bet that if you asked any sane person who probably forgot to take their medication, they would know there were 2 World Wars. And no, Americans aren`t arrogant enough to think that we won every war we were in. That was one stupid lady. And for the country beginning with U, I`ll bet most of us would have said Uruguay or UK. I know because I was thinking that the whole thing and I`m only 14. We wouldn`t say the United States of America because we think of it as America. Much like many people just call the UK England. So get off our backs just because we have a few rotten eggs in the batch. I myself found this funny, but it`s when people start thinking that all Americans are stupid based on this video that I get angry.

    They asked George Bush how many sides a triangle has. He said "I don`t know, but America will be on the winning one."

    I ahve to say.
    I did find this funny.
    But it`s not funny picking on certain people.
    I mean.
    I think myself intelligent...ish.
    But I found my self umm-ing and ahh-ing and a couple of them.
    ((But the triangle question made me laugh))

    What I`m trying to say, is that every county will have people like this.
    Infact, a large proportion of the people in each country will not be blessed with as much brain as this reporter thinks he has.
    And frankly, I think it was horribly rude pretending to be the Prime Minister.
    I wouldn`t`ve had the guts to go, "No you`re not"

    I`m being a spoil sport here, but... it was a bit mean.

    That interview could have been done in any country and they would still have received just as many stupid answers. And it`s not like they are gonna show you ALL the folks who got the questions right anyway. Ignorance is all over the world, not just in America. Australia, Europe, Canada, yeah, you all have really stupid people too. Sorry to have to break it to ya. Sad, isn`t it?

    Ok... I was in Florida ones and was swimming in a local pool in a pretty rich area. And one man heard me talking Icelandic to my friend and he starts asking me were I`m from... I reply and say I`m from Iceland and he asked me in what state it was!!?!?! It really surprised me and I said it wasn`t a state, it`s an Island and it`s betwean Greenland and Norway. Then he says.. aahh.. so it`s near Australia?...
    Americans really just don`t care about countries that arn`t a part of the US. That`s really funny because you wont find a country that`s as mixed based on origin as America.. Mexicans, African Americans, Latin people and then the real white Americans are originally from Europe.

    The video doesn`t bother me, even if it makes Americans look dumb.

    What bothers me are the post here from people who want to appear more intelligent by bashing all of American based on this joke. Post that say "Americans are dumb becuase (insert incident from personal experience)" is almost as ignorant as how the people are portrayed in the video.

    While a majority of Americans may only be concerned about their own country, not all of us are. I`m "mostly" concerned and aware of my own country, but that is becuase I live here and I am more often affected by events here. This does not mean that I completely disregard what is going on around the world as well.

    (and I`m still laughing at the Bush/ triangle joke from earlier..)

I really hope the ignorant oafs in this video were told the correct answers and humbled. Too many of us ARE very arrogant, you will find that in any country. And stop making fun of the south, my fellow countrymen and women. You are just trying to make yourselves feel better by picking on the south. Don`t pass the buck!!!

    Chill out, folks. Its just a TV show. Further more, its the same old tricks. Ask people questions and then edit out the correct answers. I would like to know how many people the interviewed, personally. It is simply ignorant to believe that this is an accurate representation of the intellegence levels of the American population. Furthermore, your average American citizen is not going to use what little free time they have to research the leaders of every country in the world and seeing as Australia is not really a super power, there is no reason that your average American wouldn`t believe an Australian man with an Australian accent in a suit with body guards and a camera crew was the Prime Minister. Or perhaps, expecting honesty is too much.

    And for my fellow Americans out there, it`s very much like getting your news from Jon Stewart--you have to take shows like this with a grain of salt. At the enf of the day, it`s just entertainment.

    And before some of you even start, the villagers in the Borat movie were peasants from the town of Glod, Romania. They were misled, some being paid just a few american dollars to act like they did, not knowing the project was going to be as massive as it was. Misled like some of the people on this video, who might not have had any idea what was really going on.

    I`m sorry, did you just say Americans try to put themselves on a pedestal? If anything it seems that much of Europe (as well as several other western nations) see themselves as somehow intellectually and culturally superior to the US. Now correct me if I`m wrong, but isn`t that putting yourselves on a pedestal? The very thing you accuse us of doing? If there`s one thing I`ve learned through this whole America sucks debate, it`s that there are A LOT of hypocrites out there. You may think your somehow better than everyone else, but just make damn sure you remember all the Americans that died so you wouldn`t be saluting the Nazi flag right now. But I`m sure you don`t care about that.

    It`s pretty clear that they would only use comments that would raise a laugh. I`m sure there were plenty of intelligent comments and questions. I thought it was very funny - but not an accurate representation of a nation. It could be achieved anywhere. They are playing on a stereotype. I would be interested to know if American students learn much about other countries or do they tend to follow a fairly insular program? After all, it`s such a vast country in itself. I can`t say that here in the UK we learn very much about the USA in school, but culturally we are pretty much bombarded with American media - some good, some not. I`ve been lucky enough to visit the states 3 times and absolutely fell in love with it. That`s my little comment. Remember this is just a tv show - it`s not easy to see your country being knocked like that - just remember how influential you are.

    I respect anyone who dies in the name of democracy, but the fact is WWII was on YOUR soil, not ours. We weren`t defending the White House, we were helping to defend Paris, London, etc. Yes Hitler declared war on the US, but we weren`t fighting for our own land. You were.

    By stripping people of their voting rights? The problem lies with the federal government, and if the midterm elections were any indication, Americans have decided to give the other side a chance.

    Personally I feel that extremists on both sides are contributing to the problem and electing a far left government would be just as bad as the current one. Thankfully there are no signs of this happening, and maybe some problems can be solved with this new moderate govenment.

    I find this to be ever-so-piss-worthy that it makes all Americans look stupid. Honestly, yes we have brainless twats like that. But do you want to honestly tell me that Austrailians aren`t as clinically stupid either? Or any country? I`m sure if you only show the stupid people in any area, no matter how small it is, you will get amusing answers that make the whole population look as bright as a light bulb without any power.

    That being said, anybody who supports George Bush must be lacking in the brain-cell department.

    That`s ignorance… not stupidity.

    Americans can be ignorant, but that doesn’t make them stupid. I admit to not knowing a lot of the questions, but it’s not from lack of being lazy or an idiot. I either wasn’t taught, or have monetarily forgotten. I’m sorry for not storing random bits of trivia in my head.


    I’d love to learn about other countries and even more about my own, but there are lots of things to learn. Just because someone didn’t know one question, doesn’t mean they might not know another about the same subject. If you ask a person enough random trivia, even the smartest one will get something wrong eventually.

    Maybe some of them knew the answer but simply drew a blank. I know I would get nervous if approached randomly by some stranger who shoved a microphone in my face, and had a camera glaring at me.

    True, many ppl would get nervous with a mic in their face, but these questions are _basic knowledge_. Seriously. If someone asked you what 2+2 was, you would not get it wrong due to nerves.
    Americans are very nice people, and the ones i know are, like many here, so ashamed.

    The John Howard thing would be a bit tough for even smart Americans- or Europeans, for that matter. I`m willing to bet that the vast majority of Europeans don`t know what John Howard looks like.

    While I`m at it, I`d just like to point out a few things.
    I am a proud native Texan (which also makes me a proud native American). I am of Polish descent, and I have relatives who fought for the Confederacy. I played football and lacrosse in high school. I am a gun owner, drive a pickup truck, listen to country music, and enjoy NASCAR.

    According to all the stereotypes, I ought to be a first-rate mental retard, yet somehow I made it out okay. A lot of Americans are the same way.

    "I hate to see it, but you know why people think Australians are stupid? Ask Steve Irwin."

    Erh no.
    _Steve Irving_ might have been stupid, but people dont regard Australians as stupid.
    I`m telling you that this is the general view of americans in Europe.
    It`s SAD.

    It is funny, however making the claim that everyone in the United States is stupid seems ignorant at best.

    Several years ago I used to watch "Street Smarts", a game show that does much the same thing as this. Occasionally they would go to other countries (Australia & UK, among others). I have to say the results were about the same.

    So while this is somewhat funny, it is not original; or a logical way of drawing conclusions.

    Let`s face it, when we have a moron for a leader, it makes us look like morons. We have been so used to being on top for so long, it`s made us fat, lazy, and stupid! If this is the best us Americans can do, I`m not impressed. Not to say there aren`t intelligent individuals among us. Hell, the best and the brightest come here, get an American education, and go makes tons of money elsewhere, or sell our technology back to us. None of our citizens need be ignorant of today`s events. Too bad we can`t mass re-educate these bottom-of-the-heap underdwellers. I notice that the interviewer didn`t talk to anybody that looked like they had the remote chance of knowing anything he asked.

    Here`s a few words:

    1. Using IQ tests is not a valid way of measuring a person`s intelligence anymore. People are intelligent in different ways and aspects. IQ test only measures one aspect.

    2. The fact that American`s are offended by a video saying American`s are stupid, which was only intended for entertainment purposes, only proves their point.

    3. America is not the best. We have problems too. But pride is not an excuse to say we have no problems. It is denial and we end up not dealing with issues. Maybe America should be required to take a 12 step program.

    4. And yes, our school system sucks. Students used to be able to be passed on to the next grade. They put a stop to that. But now we have the "No child left behind act", which essentially gives teacher permission to increase a F grade to D so the child doesn`t feel `bad`, and they encourage the student to do better. So we still have students graduating to the next grade.
    And for the record, these words came from a school Principal.

    Rinji people being intelligent in different ways and aspects is a theory. It`s not proven, the same however goes for an IQ test, as it usually favors spatial people.

    Next, there is always a little truth behind every joke. It makes sense to get offended, I mean imagine if we had a similar video degrading the British broadcasted nationwide. T`d bet my bullocks they`d be sore about that.

    And lastly, America IS the best. Yes we have our problems, but they are no where near the rest of the world. As for our pride, I suggest you look at America`s history of the isolation movement. We merely wished to seperate ourselves with the outside world`s problems. The problem is, we always came to the aid of our fellow English men. Now, for some odd reason, they feel that the "powers" have "shifted." And therefore wish to feel superior to us.

    Texas is also the state of California`s number one middleschool and highschool. So all you yanks get off your high horse.

    America ow

    LOL rinji your pincipal has no idea what he is talking about. The ultimateum for bumping a child`s grade from F to D is to review the course or slow down the pace. Another choice would be to prevent the child from graduating altogather. Teachers who bump up a child`s grade from F to D do it because they are lazy and don`t wish to take the time to force the child to improve. Childern need a reason to be motivated to do well in school, it is the teacher`s JOB to make sure that is done.

    I didn`t want to join this argument, but I thought this was way too biased. First of all, it seemed like they only interviewed one age group. Secondly, they`re people from one general area. Not really enough to base the entire country from...just saying.

    I`m not making a case of who is smarter or anything like that, I`m just saying that an effective observation cannot be made with such strict demographics o_o

    Those people were stupid, yeah. Those people.

    And I get that this is a joke, but still. It`s an old joke.

    I got to a public school here in florida and i would say that about 60-70% of the kids are total DUMBASSES. they are being shoved through the school sysytem. my algebra teacher actually did the math and said that if a kid never went to a single class in the school year, came on the day of finals, and got a least a C on the test, they would be moved up to the next grade.
    I would also like to say that most of the kids ARE NOT stupid, they are just lazy. No one has the drive anymore to succeed. its really pathetic.

    I`m not offended by the video. It was great. I`m offended by everybody thinking the video was an invitation to insult America.

    Barrel_Man put it best:

    These posts always get more comments than any other post. And it`s nations fighting over whom is smarter than whom. That`s more stupid than random people not knowing answers to trivia questions.

    It`s ignorant to say a whole country is stupid, and it`s not worth it to fight back.

    If you know you are smart, then who really cares if other people don`t think you are?

    Those saying that American`s aren`t very cosmopolitan, is it cosmopolitan at all to stereotype an entire country based on people randomly chosen off the streets?

    Everyone is different and hopefully you all will realize one day that traits aren`t limited to one country.

    When people can make fun of themselves; that`s being comfortable with who you are.

    The name for this post should be:
    Random Idiots on the streets in an edited video that doesn`t mean anything and probably means that the people making it suck and the questions have no answers anyway
    So nobody would complain. What`s humor without making fun of someone? All people saying that this video sucks are from America, the one that argue with them are from the UK. Humor: More controversial than the da vinci code and goatse combined!

    You want more countries with names starting with U? How about Uzbekistan orUruguay or United Arab Emirates.

    I love how the moron who said was American and could answer every question was too ignorant about "U" countries and figured there are probably almost none. Try again.

    There is a question that has been bothering me, and I`d like one of you non-American elitists to answer it... Why do so many damn Europeans come to the US for vacation? If you hate us so much, why the hell do you come pump money into our economy, stay in our hotels and attempt to bathe naked on our beaches?

    Just curious...

    AMERICA INCLUDES CANADA MEXICO AND ALL OF SOUTH AMERICA, because when you say "America", you are not specifying what country in the AMERICAS you are talking about. Yes, I said it, "America" is not a country. North and South America are continents!

    P.S. Has nobody heard of UGANDA?

    Okay i am american and I think its funny. It could happen anywhere with the same results it doesnt matter what country its all editing. I think the valuable lesson in this is that every country has its problems and with a country as big as the US we have lots of them. One cant judge the small portion of the population based on what you saw in that video. Im sure there are many people throughout the world who dont take full advantage of their education and generally are unconcerned about anything not directly related to their own lives. (also ive been on i-am-bored for a while i just never created an account to post :D)

    No, we caught that too, we have alove/hate relationship with Australia, we are fine with it ^_^

    Everyone defending America, you`re stupid too. This represents a VAST majority of the US population. Not JUST the south, people everywhere are eff`ing stupid and they continue to get even stupider. I think, it`s the technology. It`s making everyone lazy asses where they don`t have to think. Everything is handed to them. That`s why kids` test scores are getting lower and lower.

    Thank-You, and considering the south, anyone who wants to live there was born there... I`M FREAKING STUCK HERE IN KENTUCKY!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!! I envy the UK and Europe in general, I was born there, so my IQ went up automatically. Don`t get me wrong, I think the US is fine (used loosely) but we are so ignorant here. Everyone gets their opinions from their asses and locks up. I HATE it,the bring "facts" about everything from there too: Politics, Life, History, anything. I quote-ith Carlos Mencia- "Natural Selection, some of you are laughing. Some of you are like; "Deh what`s that, Carlos." &

    I understand this is a joke, and I thought it was pretty funny because I am able to take a joke. The fact that people honestly think that most of America is composed entirely of dumb hillbilly pieces of sh*t after watching this video is ludicrous and really offensive to me. I do not support war of any sort and couldn`t possibly hate George Bush and his blind followers more than I already have for the past 7 years. I study my ass off in school and answered every last one of those questions correctly right off the top of my head as I was watching this video. I don`t hold any negative stereotypes of other countries to heart, and I don`t resent Australia after watching this video. A handful of idiots that are put on the spot with a camera in their face don`t represent an entire country.

    I respect anyone who dies in the name of democracy, but the fact is WWII was on YOUR soil, not ours. We weren`t defending the White House, we were helping to defend Paris, London, etc. Yes Hitler declared war on the US, but we weren`t fighting for our own land. You were.

    SHUT UP! The Anzacs were helping IN BOTH BLOODY WARS! Anzac = Aussie + NZ
    But of course we don`t amtter in your stupid American brain.

    Yumii, of course Australia matters to Americans, just the americans who realize the importance of using ones brain and knowing the ENTIRE world around us and how it works. The people who are saying dumb stuff are like gnatts they annoy the heck out of everyone but are generally harmless. I`m sorry if any American has said anything to offend you today. Country pride is one of those things right next to racism and sexism that can become really offensive to other people. I think that many of the americans felt personally offended when people were insinuating we were all unintelligent similarly to how you must have felt when people started making unfair conclusions and comments about New Zealand and Australia, lets just let this topic rest

    Most of these people were probably asked to say the worst answers they could think of. I`m an American and I knew the answers most of the time.
    And the country starting with U was a trick question. Most Americans don`t spell out the entire name United States of America. We just call it either USA or America. Therefore, we think of our nation as starting with A for America.
    And really, what other nation starts with U? I don`t know one, and if there was one it`s probably a very small nation.


    How about Ukraine?? Thats the only I cound think of....seriously though thats terrible Im American and I could answer all of them except like one or two thats because I dont watch the news every morning....

    here a brain buster "How many countries are there really?" Many websites ask you to "select your country" from a drop-down menu in order to register for or purchase something. These lists vary, but they almost always have over 200 names on them. The most comprehensive one I have seen to date is the following, which I got off some e-dating site. It contains 239 "countries" in all now unlike dating sites, the United Nations only recognizes 192 countries, ie: real self-governing sovereign countries and not phony baloney colonies. The only "real" country not counted in the UN`s 192 total is the Vatican City, which voluntarily abstains from full UN membership, and has only "observer" status. The UN still recoginizes it as a sovereign state. so how many?

    I live in America and I am Korean, although i live here I think America sucks. However, if you`re serious, you should be shot not just for stupidity, but ignorance as well. Yes, I know America is not the smartest country, we are pretty stupid, but for those of you who can`t tell that this video was edited to show the worst answers, you all have just dropped 3 IQ points. And for those who think IQ tests are the best 100% way to tell intelligence, and their is NO margin for er

    for error... you`re a moron. Remove yourself from the gene pool PLEASE. Yes, we Americans can be incredibly stupid, but your ignorance makes you almost (not quite) as stupid. Also, their are places where you can find intelligent people, and not everything is horrible. Yes, many things are bad, and the majority is stupid (that`s why we nominated kerry and bush as our candidates for both parties) but don`t go around assuming things. Also, are eductation MUST have english, history, math, and science, but most schools also have a gym course and the middle/elementary (or you can say junior high and elementary) include art, tech ed, music, and fam con. Their is also health and language. Our education system is bad, but don`t just go assume everyone is stupid. And no, this is not the VAST majority, although it is a very large number, it is not the VAST majority. Also, the problem can be caused indirectly by technology, however, their are many more factors.

    With this being a hasty generalization that all Americans are retarded and stupid, it is, in fact not accurate.

    LoL But sometimes you have to laugh at yourself and stop being so butt-hurt about a TV show. America does the exact same thing to other places, so don`t dish it if you cant take it.

    Our school systems (mainly Junior High and High School) lack in teaching a curriculum that is broad and usable. But hey..once we get rid of Bush, maybe our country will brighten up (meaning education and our future)


    4 sides to a triangle? He should be slapped with a live bass..=]

    they definetly didnt interview them ppl in seattle, maybe texas (no offense to americans), but texas is like the 2nd fattest state in the world, missisipi comes in #1, but no doubt houston is the fattest place in the world.

    But this isnt about obesity, its about stupidity, and i honestly think the about 80% of americans are stupid, on welfare, do drugs, or a convict.

    I wonder how many of you that are agreeing Americans are "stupid" have spent any significant time in any other country. I have spent some intimate time in many, many places and I know better. Believe me people, every country has their own morons. Furthermore, a country does not go from cowboys and indians, to one of the most powerful in the world in 200 plus years by being stupid. It took the rest of the world thousands of years to become mediocre... By the way, Uganda, United Arab Emerets, Uruguay, Ukraine, United Kingdom and... I believe that is it... The only thing this dude succeeded in doing is making you, the viewer look stupid, because you believe that every person he came to gave wrong answers. Keep it up people and next thing you know there will be videos of you reading internet posts on the internet...

    Nah most Americans are not that stupid, they just have such a vast country with so much going on that they have little time or inclination to learn properly about the rest of the world. I hope that they do learn these things though, as this particular lack of knowledge makes them often xenophobic. Two things though, Most europeans have evolved past the religious nutcase stage as we have learned to accept the truth about science, when this happens in the US (and other places) it may finally mean peace for humanity, and secondly why the hell did you vote for Bush? (Arnie was weird enough, kind of the same as us voting Dr Who as prime minister of the UK, or Mr Bean as president of France).

    Alright, I am an American and I have to say, this is pretty much accurate for the people of our country. There`s intelligent people around as well, of course...I`m thinking they purposely did not show any of the Americans who were able to answer their questions correctly.

    I don`t understand it. Do the people of other countries just know more than us? If so, why? Better schools? Now I`m curious.

    I`m from America and to all you other countries I just wanted to say that if someone else from America overreacts, I would hope that you understand seeing how we get picked on for being morons -even though we aren`t- constantly and when you know that you aren`t stupid but being constantly told that you are, then it gets very frustrating. A lot of people over here and very intelligent and I think that you are smart enough to know that yourselves.

Why? cause I know americans all the americans I know do not have a clue about, cultures, geography, history of the world or almost anything. On contrary with Europe and the rest of the world were actually you study in school. There is no Fkn way americans can deny this! They are ignorant till the last drop even their president does not have a clue! Really sad.

    AVDPhoenix, we should believe you from your VAST knowledge of knowing a couple of Americans that you thought were stupid. Yeah, right.

    Yeah, of course if you walk around asking people questions you`ll find some dumb non-nice individuals, in america, and in any country in your precious EUROPE "were" you study. The fact is that most Americans could have answered almost everyone of those questions.

    Countries that begin with U, let`s see, just off the top of my head, USA, Uganda, Uzbekistan, United Arab Emirates, and I`ll admit that Uganda came to mind before USA, but most don`t even call It that.

    Hey, I know a few european guys and they are drunk about 90 percent of the time (from Holland or something, they`re friends of a roomate) does that mean that 99.9999999% of Europeans are drunk most of the time. No, because I`m not an ignorant human being like you.

    ok honestly people stop just leaving comments saying ``wow Americans are stupid`` because you aren`t specifying whether you are talking about all Americans in general or just the people in teh video. I mean I`m sure you could go to any country and only edit in the people who got the question wrong. I honestly think every person on IAB from America knew the answer to every one of those questions. So if you take that sample... I guess not all Americans are stupid are they? Yes, I admit I`m only 13 and I have met some pretty stupid people. But at least 99.999 people that I know aren`t as stupid as the video makes them appear. People try to say that Americans are stupid but lets see a video that an American made about people from your country.

And on like the second page there was a why people think australians are dumb...and um...yeah that sucked, it just proved that the guy doing it was thick as. Anywho, to those of you that got offended by it...get a life, seriously...it`s called a joke...but to those americans who know how to laugh at themselves (something that australians have DOWN) (not that you`re dumb, it`s just an american steryotype, we laugh at australian steryotypes) YOU`RE AWESOME...but yeah...thats all I have to say...doesn`t make that much sense

    I`m from the U.S. and I found that funny. It was either totally set up or they just got the cream of the crop. Haha. Anyway, not all Americans are stupid. It`s a dumb myth brought about by the internet and videos showing the stupid population of the U.S. being themselves. If you believe all Americans are like this, then you are the one with the problem.

    I`m sorry. Austrialian mind tricks? It`s common fu.cking sense!!!!

    "How many sides does a Triangle have?" "4. No wait. Sides? 1."

    Come on! It`s common sense! Anyone who answers a simple question that badly, cameras on or not, must either have the IQ of a 2 year old or is sh.itting their pants for being so camera shy. That`s an easy question.

    It saddens me, I`m so glad I`m moving to Europe when I`m 18.

    truthfully, any country you go to there will be people such as the ones seen (many of these types of "interviews" are edited to make it look bad BTW).. i think the rise in annoyance with america just makes us sensable and easy targets..

    there is no need to argue.. go outside, have fun, get a life..

    I know this has been said before, but the only thing that pisses me off about this video is that it`s taking a few people stupid answers, and letting them represent the whole country. I`m sure there are people like these in every country of the world. Just because a lot of Americans don`t care about the outside world, doesn`t give anyone the right to judge the whole country. Personaly, I enjoy world history and politics far more than American history. And you can tell they were talking to some ignorant people because nearly every one of them supported Bush. ;-)

    Right, when did a select few people off the streets dictate the intelligence of a country of 300 million people? I`m guessing they interviewed a lot of people, then just edited out the smart ones and kept the dumb ones.

    These people do not represent America. They represent the dumb part of America. I did not vote for them to show how dumb America is. Our president does a good enough job of that.

    BTW, before people start insulting Americans because they voted for Bush, just know that there`s a 50/50 chance you`re wrong about who they voted for.

    People should really worry more about their own damn country.

    You`d have to be an idiot to make a statement like that. Bush won, so over 50% of REGISTERED VOTERS WHO VOTED IN NOVEMBER are idiots. That doesn`t include people who COULDN`T or DIDN`T vote. Making a statement like that would be the same as if you took two kids out of a middle school class and assumed "AT LEAST 50% are idiots"

    Wow. Americans are sooo stupid. I got this conclusion by watching a short video featuring about 20 or 30 people in a small section of the world. That is definitely a large enough group of people who can adequately represent the rest of the millions of US citizens.

    BTW it was funny but I`ve seen this too many times on Jay Leno`s "Jaywalking" feature. Who knows? They may even paid the people off camera to get it wrong on purpose or something.

    moot, it`s an adjective, it means without purpose or meaningless, or irrelevant

    You tried to argue about the intelligence of Americans, made a mistake, and then threw your entire "America is dumb" argument out the window by saying "whatever, you guys are just dumb, deal with it," making your argument moot.

    Damn.

    Just... damn. I`m aware they likely edited out the footage of the correct responses, but that anyone would not know such fundamental questions is profoundly troubling. Any democracy would just about have to be representative, otherwise it`d fail, not given any prevalent, strong ethic to participate in politics, which most people find boring anyway.

    I can`t believe how worked up people are about this. In all fairness to Americans, there are a lot of respectable people there that don`t deserve stereotyping of this nature. But, that doesn`t mean that there aren`t people that are just like the ones in this video. It`s almost scary to think that this many ignorant (I won`t say stupid becauseI don`t think it`s true) people actually do exist. I remember reading articles around the beginning of the Iraq War that said that less than 30% of 18-20 year olds couldn`t find Iraq on a world map, and they are the prime target for recruitment in the army. I`d bet if the Bush family wasn`t so interested in Iraq, they probably wouldn`t be able to either. The truth is that there are a lot of ignorant people out there, and the only reason why everyone picks on he Americans is that they are the only big power left in the world and their government has screwed up enough times to warrant global attention.

    1) Today
    2) 1775 right?, 1774 maybe, 1 and a half years before the Declaration was signed
    3) There were no parties back then, but he was Federalist. The parties came about after Alexander Hamilton started talking about a national bank and several bills were being passed in congress about immigrants, mostly French, requiring them to spend 14 years here for citezenship instead of 4. James Madison and others felt those bills were unconstitutional and them, along with French sympathizers (the french revolution was igniting controversy in the US) plus farmers who were being taxed like crazy by Congress (another one of the `unconstitutinal` things) founded their own party, the Republicans
    4) George Washinton - Federalist, 2 terms, both of which he was elected to without opposition

    Anyway, I`ve had it with all the Texas jokes on here. The video was not made exclusively in Texas. As near as I can tell, the cities featured are San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC.

    Some of you posting have said things along the lines of "oh its in texas if they went to california or new york the people wouldnt be so stupid" Guess again. It seems you`ve forgotten that Texas is a world business center and the home of NASA (one of the homes of NASA, anyway).

    Get your facts straight before you rip on Texas. I`ll bet many of you think we put our cowboy boots and hat on before we saddle up our horses for a ride down I-10.

    and one of the reasons for the growing amount of ignorant people i think is tehre`s a lot of people in the US that are really scared and afraid to do much or teach muuch about foreign affairs

    i got tired of the bush bashing in class one day, of all the people in my class who were saying bush was stupid and shouting out and whatnot when they knew NOTHING about him or political affairs etcetera, they were just victims, sheep really, following all the photoshopped pictures of him (holding books upside down etc) on the net

    so, we all picked sides and i lectured the class sort of and countered all the arguments about bush, and then pointed out North Korea, Iran, and Iraq on a world map and talked about their interests and what was happening
    there were 4 calls to my teacher from parents about children "being offended" or "not being able to say what they wanted to"
    There are too many wussies out there now stopping kids from learning what`s more impora

    theres so many comments on this link prolly no one will see this, but how come they dont` show anyone getting right? also go to austraillia and ask them they`ll know bush cuz were one of the most powerful countries in the world, austruallia on the other had not so much. i know i spell austrailia wrong but what can i say lol
