Well yes, the interviews are obviously selected, stupid ones only. I've see this thing done here in Spain before, it's sort of funny but of course you can't take it at face value as a representative sample. And by the way, some people do have one single kidney, if they've donated the other. :bleh:

Reminiscent of a Canadian special called "Talking to Americans" that asked the same sort of questions. I'm just under the impression that they cut out the majority of people, who got it right.

We just gotta make ourselves feel superior to the Americans though, just like the rest of the world.

Okay, the responses were selected, I go with that. But why is the fact that people around the world see USA folk as ignorant narrow-minded people? Not all of em, but not I'm not the one making prejudices. This is just what I found.

Significant? well, π? is just as significant as how many Eiffel Towers are in Paris. Just an example, nothing more. I just wanted to point out that some people may confuse it for some food. Meh, why do I bother? <_<

Back to the people in the video... They did another one where they asked americans who their government should bomb next, one guy said North Korea and they had a pre made map of the world with North korea written over the mainland of Australia and South Korea written over Tasmania, they gave the map to the guy and asked him to point out North Korea... eventually he found it and was shocked at how big North Korea was compared to South Korea.
