    If he doesn`t know American history fair enough, because basic schools in England don`t teach it. (as far as i know), but the where is england in comparison to america, he said left and up a bit... he doesn`t even know where England is, hes just basically a moron. lol.

    not at all surprising that the kid didn`t know anything about American history even if this was real. American history isn`t taught in schools until you take history as a specialized subject in two years that are not compulsorily to take, even then it is not necessarily taught, mainly because honestly, Europe has a far more interesting historical past than America. On top of that, this video is definitely a fake, to not know when world war two was but to know that George bush is on a $20, pretty obvious.

    George Bush is most definitely not on any currency that I`ve ever seen... the president on the $20 is Andrew Jackson. He wasn`t correct. Every time the guy said "Correct" the kid was most definitely incorrect.

    -Benjamin Franklin was never president, he never even ran for president, and signed all his letters:
    Benjamin Franklin
    Printer
    -George Washington was the first president and fought against King George III and the British in the Revolutionary War
    -George Bush is -not- on any currency. America does not change its currency to reflect the person in charge at the time the money was printed.
    -July 4 was the day America declared its independence from British rule.
    -Technically he was right about there being two presidents in the American Civil War. Jefferson Davis is considered to be only president of the Confederate States of America; Abraham Lincoln was the other.
    -World War II... nevermind, not going there...
    -The -Japanese- attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
    -The Allies won WWI. Both France and America were on the Allied side.
    -Vietnam is in the south Pacific.

    I pulled this from memory, so if I`m wrong anywhere, let me know.

    "What American teenagers would know the first goddamn thing about British history?"

    Not sure what state your high school was in, but as far as I`m aware, World History is a fairly standard required course throughout our country. Oddly enough, most American "World History" textbooks have an abundance of British history in it, simply because there is so much to cover.

    Here`s a question for you. Has this knowledge produced any monetary gain for you in the mere 30 to 39 years you have been in existence? Ultimately it doesn`t make a difference If some trivial bullpoo pertaining to the Articles of Confederation days happened to be taught in your education system. At the end of the day, this isn`t Jeopardy. If it is, then for $500, he is a stuck up limey fag. Who is randomxnp?

    Ok, first off, to all the raging Europeans jumping to this kid`s defense; reverse the nationalities here and apply your comments to any of the multitude of "Americuh iz dum" videos floating around. See the double standard? The majority of Americans could answer all those questions to some reasonable degree. That being said trying to display your knowledge on the internet is in and of itself sort of pointless when wikipedia is just a new tab and a URL away. I will play devil`s advocate for a bit though and say that in reality, most people are going to brain dump this kind of information that they don`t use on a daily basis. Only so many penguins can fit on the iceberg. Every time a new one climbs on one falls off the other side. Every time my supervisor gives me some piece of arbitrary information I`ll never use I lose thoughts from my childhood. I swear one of these days he`s going to brief me on some tech data change and I`m going to forget how to breath.

    Most of the questions were about US history. If we took an average American teen as asked them "who was the first prime minister" they would be lucky to even pick out Tony Blair. However he should have at least known about the European theater segment of WWII.

    @the 2 Europeans who also don`t know American history...

    Whenever someone from the US mentions the first president, they aren`t referring to the first president of the Continental Congress; and being President of the Continental Congress and being President of the United States are two very different things. The current version of the United States Constitution wasn`t even established until 1789, meaning that any government that had been established beforehand was reformed and thereby no longer valid. The position of President wasn`t even around until the 1789 version of the Constitution was placed into practice. Your claim that John Hanson was the first president isn`t even the least bit valid considering the Revolutionary War didn`t even end until 1783. Washington was the ninth president of the Continental Congress, but he was the first President of the United States.

    Vietnam however, was a guess; oh well.

    Furthermore, the position of President of Continental Congress was mostly a ceremonial position, and only after one of his grandsons started promoting him as the first "President of the United States" was he even remotely thought of that way. The Articles of Confederation ceased validity when the United States Constitution came to be. The old government was nullified, and the office of President of the US was created.

    Just the same as you guys don`t count Roman Caesars in your line of rulers, same thing applies here. I`m sure John Hanson was a great man, yada yada yada... but he wasn`t a US President.

    Firstly I`m English and I could answer most of these questions, this kid, if he isn`t taking the p**s, he is a f**king idiot.
    Secondly, SHOCK HORROR but American history isn`t on the british school curriculum, We can pretty much live our lives without needing to know that much about American history, it isn`t that important to us.
    Thirdly, I would like to see one of these with the nationalities switched. How much does the Average American teen know about the Magna Carta or the British civil war?

    ok, i know if the roles were reversed that the american kid would not know jack about england`s history other than what he`d been forced to, but the point of this video is to be FUNNY not to get everybody all butt-hurt.

    We learned that the British school system doesn`t cover American history. That was highly informative. Lets all have a quiz on Chinese history, I wonder what we might find out. I`ll save you the bother, it`s that we dont study Chinese history. I hope you enjoyed my post and you have learned something great.

    As much as I`d like to laugh my ass off about this, chances are American kids today, and some adults as well, are just as ignorant. After all, How else can Obama getting elected president be explained ?

    And CrakrJak brings it around back to Obama for the win. Well played, sir.

    Also, I`m pretty sure that as an American I know four things about British history: Princess Diana, what I saw in Braveheart, what I saw in The Patriot, and what I saw in multiple James Bond movies.

    So there.

    Your question suggests that you mistake the importance of knowledge. It would not be possible in most cases to say "I gained this from that piece of knowledge". However from the depth of my knowledge (which was certainly not taught in the British education system; if I relied on that I would struggle to guess within a decade the timing of US independence or to distinguish between Washington and Lincoln) I gain an idea of how the world works. In this case of history, of how a political system, perhaps the greatest political system yet devised, was formed.

    Had this been taught in more depth in American schools perhaps that political system would not have suffered so much damage from unwise constitutional amendment, judicial activism and media ignorance.

    Seeing Red Fear say that American history is not that important to him indicates how Barack Obama gained office. If history was important to people he would not have been up for election in the Senate, let alone a candidate for Presidency.

    American history is important to us in Europe. The idea that it is unimportant to Americans is utterly insane.

    "...I know four things about British history: Princess Diana, what I saw in Braveheart, what I saw in The Patriot, and what I saw in multiple James Bond movies"

    Then you know nothing of British history that actually comes close to the truth, unless you remember the dates!

    The Articles of Confederation, ratified on 1 March 1781, names the confederacy "The United States of America" and created the office of President. That President had far wider duties than presiding over Congress, and there was no need for any constitution for him to have the authority of the post. In fact the US Constitution was originally negotiated under the Articles of Confederation, so is in principle subordinate to them.

    The Articles of Confederation were considered too weak by many people, and thus was replaced, and superseded by the American Constitution. Whether or not John Hanson was President of the Continental Congress or not has no bearing on him as a "President" as the government was redesigned in the American Constitution, making "President of the United States" a different office than that of President of the CC. Simply because the Articles defines the "United States of America" does not by proxy mean that he must then have been President of the US. And if this is what kids are taught in Europe than they are being taught wrong. Also, I would like to mention that it is within America`s own right to acknowledge whom it wills as the first President of the United States, which it has since George Washington was unanimously elected the first President of the US. So Washington being first is nothing new, its been that way for hundreds of years.

    The Articles also fail to mention the United States as a "nation" or establish a "government", something the American Constitution ratifies. So in reality John Hanson literally presided over an unofficial government, that by 1787 had no real power under the Articles of Confederation. The Articles also left the "government" no efficient way to collect money from the states, something that is needed to keep any government going.

    Look`s pretty staged to me. Although, in England, we don`t (well, I havent) learned about American history.
