    Why the F**K would you need to know any of this. what is the US obsession with naming states and past presidents anywho????
    We don`t do this in the UK we don`t give a toss about what a county looks like on a map, well I don`t perhaps some anal retards do.
    the only reason this would be a skill to have would be for planning bombing missions, which I`m not BTW I`m still saving up for my plane!!!

    Don`t worry, I am sure most of us Americans couldn`t even do 40 out of 50. I got 33 of them correct... Hawaii was figure 8-ish with an extra loop if you understood that.

    Shepherd, North America is about 2.5 times the size of the EU. EU has 27 member countries and America has 50 states. How is the US any more obsessed with naming regions than your precious Europe? Also, it would be really really hard govern places or to get anywhere without having proper names for the places. So, stop being a turd and open an atlas right now!

    He meant that in Europe noone would expect you to be able to recite which countries are in the Union, but in America it seems a good number of you could name all the states. Same with presidents, from what I can tell.

    Everyone I know that can do that knows the states from that song and the presidents from the animaniacs song. Other then that most people dont really give a poo, at least in the northwest.

    The American education system needs to spend more time teaching kids about the wider world and less time self-obsessing about reciting a list of the state capitols, state nicknames, state flowers, state birds and whatever else...

    A 2004 CNN study of young Americans (full article here) turned up these disturbing results:

    Nearly two-thirds could not find Iraq on a map of the Middle East.

    Nearly three-quarters incorrectly named English as the most widely spoken native language.

    Thirty percent thought the most heavily fortified border in the world was between the United States and Mexico.

    Americans scored second to last on overall geographic knowledge.

    Guys, it`s a big world out there, and America`s role in it is diminishing relative to others (Approx. 1 trillion dollars have been spent in Iraq, which could have been spent on US schools, hospitals, public transport, welfare. The US dollar today is weaker than the Canadian dollar. 100 USD today will only get you 97 CAD. THAT is f*cked up). I urge you to stop reciting insignificant state nicknames, and start teaching kids where Iraq is on a world map. If not, the US is going to be overtaken, and will end up the same as Russia (i.e. an ex-superpower).

    Fin.

    Ahem. It`s just a game.
    Perhaps we would like to know about our history? We`ve been around a lot less time than you have so maybe they`re more important.
    You need to know these things in the US so you don`t look like an idiot.

    alright... who did these cnn dudes ask the question to? god damn... i bet they went to alabama or some redneck state and asked.. i can locate those countries almost instantly... and who cares if we dont know exactly how many times greater china has in population compared to us...
    i can live my day with out having to remember that china has 4X population on the US...

    As for the people who know nothing about the world outside of the U.S., I just don`t care. As selfish or inward as it may sound, why should people know anything that doesn`t directly affect them. I can locate Iraq on a map, but my life would be approximately 0% different if I couldn`t, so who gives a poo?

    Jesus Christ, davymid, turn this simple, and amusing, game into a sociology lecture about how STUPID we Americans are and how much BETTER than us everybody else is.

    You know why American kids can`t find Iraq on a map? For the same reason British kids can`t find Idaho on a map.

    IT DOESN`T FÜCKING MATTER UNLESS YOU`RE A GEOGRAPHY MAJOR!

    davymid...it`s just a game. There are tons of games out there just like this one (some have been posted here) where the shapes of world countries, or British counties, or the 22 French regions, or the Canadian provinces and territories or whatever the fück are used in games to help learn geography.

    And what the hell does the $US vs. $CAD have to do with anything. The $CAD has been higher than the $US before, but the US economy kept moving up. The currency fluctuation has nothing to do with the American military spending it`s budget money in Iraq.

    Your comment actually made YOU seem more obsessed than the Americans you sneer at.

    Lol you act like the little 13 yr olds all don`t know where babies come from and still do the "earmuffs" thing when their parents swear!

    I`ve been accused of a lot of negative things in this thread, none of which are true. The best comment was the fact that the US is introspective, belly button gazing.

    Why is it that obsesive teaching of history and geography is so important in a culture that finds it so hard to control itself i.e. gun culture etc.

    Re. Iraq and the wider world I know enough to get by but it seems that where ever I look there are US soldiers "fighting for peace".

    I`ll leave this for you and can someone pass it on to Bush for me:

    "FIGHTING FOR PEACE IS LIKE F**KING FOR VIRGINITY"

    Wow. I got 100%, but the most amusing part of this game was all the arguments it caused here...
    So people think Americans should apologize for not caring about geography? I`d like to see what percentage of British children, let alone most of the people in the world, can name the capital of Nicaragua before saying that Americans suck at geography. And it`s not that we don`t care, but we share our continent with two other countries. From a local standpoint, it`s not exactly necessary for an American to know much more than that, just because we don`t come in contact with other countries as frequently as people in Europe do. The countries who scored better than us in geography have other countries all around them, all of which they should be able to name. All we`ve got around us is more states, and it`s more important to the US to learn about them rather than some random country in Europe, kay?
