The answer to this obvious satanic ruse is:

It don`t revolve around the sun, so your question is pointless. Read your damn bible to find the answer to this and all your questions heathen.

That would be the correct christian answer. Obvisouly those Australians are all gonna burn in hell for even geussing at is.

@snowshovel - who says I`m reasonable?

If they`d said nearly or approximately 365.25 it would be a reasonable answer. My point was they were bragging about knowing that it was 365.25 rather than 365, i.e. they knew about leap years, but not the flip side of the leap century rule, nor the underlying truth that we don`t know exactly, in fact its almost certainly a function over time.

It takes...like...a day, right? Cause the sun revolves around the flat earth. This is basic science, damn people trying to confuse everyone.

MattPrince, it really is 365.25. That`s why we have leap year.

I like the (almost) smart arses that think its 365.25 - close but no star.

Anyway, maybe the Aussies are deliberately taking a relativistic view, taking an observer on earth as the static frame....

"read up on your astrology and you`ll agree with me. trust me, im an astrologer"

Bwa-hahahaha! I think you meant "astroNOMER". Astrology is the study of the mysticism of the stars; astronomy is the study of the physics of the stars.

1 day could very well be the correct answer, with all the planets in the universe I am sure there is a planet that takes exactly 365 days 6 hours and 7 seconds to perform one rotation. And that would be one day, just not one Earth day.

Actually it is 365 days 6 hours seven seconds and even that is not exact.

Well, if you actually watched the video, you would see they said that 30% of the people they interviewed thought it took a day for the earth to go around the sun. AND near the end of the video, they showed many people who got it right.

they were answering with instinct- it`s not that they don`t know the answer, it`s that it sounds so simple and quickly said that their brain processes it wrong.

That`s just their ploy. They`re hiding the fact that they`ve a Utopian society with advanced technology fueled by Australium.

Hey, if it weren`t for Australia, we wouldn`t have Crocodile Dundee! That means the Simpsons would`ve never done the episode that gives us Knifey-Spooney!

Im sooo glad they did this. Its always America made to look dumb in these, but the point is that when you jump people with cameras, they dont think as clearly, and you have the ability to edit to make everyone look like morons.

@vegascartman It`s not the videos which are moronic, it`s the people who base their judgement of ALL Australians (in this case) on the information. IMO, more than likely 30% of ALL PEOPLE are just as stupid, but unless we ask, we won`t know.
