"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)."

It didn't really register coloring in the circle.
Once I scribbled over practically the whole name and it still didn't register.

"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."

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...

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!!!


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.
Simple.

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.

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.

"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.

This is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. Just show the damn state instead of making us draw it.

lol I did the HARD version... 50 questions, with the capitols and the nicknames thrown in...

And I got an 84%...

SO yeah, I ahve a lot fo useless info stored in my head that I didn't know was there...

Thank goodness I can name the fifty states, most of the capitols, and some of the nicknames, though! I know this will save my life someday, somehow...

Maybe not in practice no, but like you say it is something you learn in school. But it's just pointless knowledge really.

+meep+ sadly most people couldn't do either of those things, maybe while in school, but after most couldn't tell you much about ALL the states, and I don't know many people who could name half of the presidents.

I actually did get Hawaii, and it was just a bunch of little dots. Or maybe that was just my horrible drawing skills.
