youtube.com/watch?v=XoF_cRSBSs4 You ask your average German and he will show some interest in knowing about French culture, or Politics in Poland or Denmark. You ask your average French and they will know some facts about Italy or Sweden. But British people seem to be quite proud of not knowing anything about their neighbours. It's like deep down they think 'those Euroshits? Excuse-me, we had an Empire, we're too good for them'. I so hope Brexit hurts their pride and kicks them off their high horse, so they'll learn how much they need Europe

Just cherry picked retards. You can do the same with pretty much any country
2019-02-21 11:39
+1 but im pretty sure you can find more of these kind of people in burgerland
2019-02-21 11:42
probably, but I wouldn't know
2019-02-21 11:42
i mean im sure u dont know all the 50 states in the us as a european
2019-02-21 11:47
I know some of them but does it even matter? Typical murican cant name 5 countries in europe
2019-02-21 11:50
most of us can name the 'bigger' states, so as muricans the bigger countries... but the point is, why d they learn all the little countires which are 'useless' for them? if theres no need for them to learn em all and they dont care, why d they?
2019-02-21 11:53
states =/= countries
2019-02-21 11:54
any american can live w/o knowing all the countries in europe, so can u w/o knowing all the states... why tf d anyone learn anything that doesnt benefit him?
2019-02-21 11:57
so you want to tell me that you never learned anything useless?
2019-02-21 11:59
i did, but learning something useless things thats taught in school is pretty much different than learning something by myself. and yeah if u learned something for a test and u werent interested in and didnt have to use, u most likely gonna forget it

There is no such thing as learning something with no benefit... You Always Benefit
2019-02-23 12:35
ofc... like chemistry formulas and shit... had to learn it, forgot 1 year later and never used since the test lul
2019-02-23 12:38
Typical American can't point out where most states are when given a map of the USA.

I don't think it applies to British people only. You can see this weird glorification of ignorance in every country. People aren't even ashamed of their lack of knowledge, they just laugh and think it's normal.
2019-02-21 11:43
in school, we don't learn about the cultures of countries, only cultures of certain religions if they take religious education
2019-02-21 11:45
I dont know which shit hole you went to school in but i learnt about scandinavian history, american history, french history and language, spanish history and language, German history and language.
2019-02-21 11:53
yo wtf where is dutch history
2019-02-21 11:57
I did actually learn about the dutch empire, my bad
2019-02-21 11:59
phew, for a minute I thought we're irrelevant, which we are...
2019-02-21 12:00
nah man, you guys are important in terms of tidal defenses. Global leaders in that shit i believe
2019-02-21 12:01
Ye true, for how much longer though?? Our country will be flooded in about 200 years. Hundreds of years of history will be down at the bottom of the sea, quite sad if you think about it...

what subjects did you take that taught you that? i dont know if its changed now but i left school in 1999 and i wouldnt of been able to choose enough subjects to learn all that. i could of choosen 2 out of 3 humanities, 1 of the 3 science (together with general science) and 1 language. togehter with the shit you need like maths and english I had maths, english, science, art, graphic design, geography, history, french
2019-02-23 13:08
I learnt about all those countries histories unsurprisingly from history lessons... XD oh and I studied all of yours above just with music, drama, all the sciences individually, German and Spanish. I'm not a good example of a standard student though as I pretty much got straight As

I guess things have come along a bit since the 90s then :P I wasnt allowed to pick 2 languages and had to get good grades in french in year 7 and 8 or i had no choice to change. For me music and drama were the alternatives to art and graphic design. I must admit history wasn't my strong point though lol so I may have been taught those things :P All i remember is ww1 and 2 stuff and a bit on the tudors :D
2019-02-23 15:34
that means you specifically took those classes. schools don't just teach that much to everybody
2019-02-24 12:28
In the uk, you learn about ww1 and 2 and about American history and about the vikings ect by standard. You also have to do two languages and can do a third if you get high enough grade. But you are right, I did a lot of extra classes out of school as I went to a bad school

It seems like general knowledge is really underappreciated. People don't know geography basics so they can't point anything on map, they don't know basics of biology, chemistry and medicine and so the whole anti-vax, flat Earth and "climate change is a lie" movements appeared. Societies have no clue about objective history so noone learns from past mistakes. I'm telling you, ignorance will be the reason of our fall.

While I agree with all of your points I just need to correct you on one thing. Ignorance in itself is not necessarily a bad thing because it's neutral, just meaning lack of knowledge and awareness. However being ignorant with intent, e.g. not willing to learn because of stubborness is probably the dumbest thing ever. Which happens a lot in high school... it's "cool" to be dumb etc. That will be the reason for the individual's fall, not society. If the majority is still willing to learn the other part will die out eventually, in other words, survival of the fittest.

British people are a special type of ignorant. Generally speaking, Brits do NOT care about anything outside of their little bubble and they actually take pride in the fact that they know absolutely nothing about anyone else. Very much like the Americans in that respect.

Every country is going to have stupid people, from what I know this applies more to Americans, sure they are further away but still. Like some of them don't know what the capitals of Spain or France are. I'm quite good at my geography but most UK schools don't get taught about foreign history. We cover WW1 and 2 but not like empires or the French revolution even the American revolution.

2019-02-24 12:31
Oh please! These sort of videos are easily cherry picked and could be staged as far as we're aware. British people will obviously have more dumb people broadcasted on the internet because they have a language that is universally used. Their language created YouTube and other social media sites. Other European nations don't use YouTube that much in their own language, therefore their dumb people are not broadcasted. This could be any European nation but of course they'd cherry pick or stage it. It would be incredibly boring if it wasn't a fail, right? It's all done for views and a reaction around the Brexit vote, of course. If it was a bunch of Germans of French nobody could watch it. An average European person wouldn't know this either. You only learn about nations you are visiting or wanting to live in. Nobody cares about geography if you're not interested in geography after school. What about if these people aren't keen on visiting other nations, but are smart in another filed? For all we know, they probably asked the people to rate their geography skills and picked dumbest ones. Which could be done for any European nation!
