LiveLeak.com - Americans are NOT stupid,are they!- Part 2
When is the 4th of July
There really should be basic intelligence tests in order to vote. :rocker:
You can almost forgive people who can't remember the year, but when you're asked "what month did 9/11 happen in", and you answer "August", shouldn't you be shot on sight?
August 16th one guy said. Just incredible.
Ever watch Jay Leno's "Jay Walking" where Leno goes out and asks passers by simple questions I can't believe just how dumb some people are. Last week Leno asked a passer by what year did the US declared independence the guy said 1869, when Leno asked him why he picked 1869 he said "I don't know it sounded good" And that was one of the tougher questions i've heard Leno ask.
Leno: "In what country is the Panama canal" answer "I don't know ....in Pana"?
Leno: What was the Gettysburgh address"? Passer by "Well i don't know the exact address" :rofl:
Leno: "What politician was called tricky Dick"? ...passer by..."Bill Clinton"? That answer i can understand.

My wife thinks WWII is still going on.
Is "Rip Torn" his real name?
Is "Rip Torn" whose real name?
There are always going to be 'outliers" whose response is way outside the standard deviation, but I'd like to see a scientific poll of that question...
In the video they stated 70% knew the answer. This of course is with them controlling who they ask.
I can see why a UK'er might take pleasure in something that depicts Americans as dumb. I don't fully understand why an American would though. I think it might be related to issues of self-worth though. The dumber and more useless everyone around you is the better you feel about yourself.
Almost nine years have passed, it has faded from peoples minds. Ignorance and amnesia creeps up on people if you give them enough time and distance no matter how traumatic the event.
That stuff is amusing, but I'm sure a lot of that is scripted.
Doubt it - it's because people have cared less and less over it as years have passed.
When 9/11 happened, the entire country was in PEP RALLY mode to catch Osama Bin Laden. Now? It's as if OBL has become nothing but a figment of everyone's imagination. It's as if this whole "war on terrorism" has escaped from everyone's minds as well.
Frankly, if many Americans don't remember 9/11 even happened, I'm not surprised.
Flex, I so love that skit. That one, and the other when he has the game show type deal, where he asks 3 people simple questions. Funny stuff.
Yeah, that's it. I posted this so I can feel better about myself. What was that you were saying about people being dumb and useless?
