God bless America!!

I normally write about punkrock or things related to it,but I can't help but making an exception when I see things like this.Today I read an official study that says that 34% of spanish population think that the sun revolves around the earth.Quite stunning,but I am even more surprised when I see that 20% of those people were in university.I have always been fascinated by people that happily ignore what's around them,not caring about any kind of culture and living in ignorance,wondering in what world do they live in or what's wrong with the school system.But the spanish study is a joke compared to the video that follows.The funniest part is from minute 3:30 to the end,where we can see american citizens interviewed,answering some simple political and geographical questions.Someone thinks that Kofi Annan is a drink,Tony Blair an actor or that there are 10 Eiffel towers in Paris,.Ok till there,we all know USA is the most powerful country in the world and when you are that powerful you probably don't care about the rest of the human beings.But as patriotic as they are,when asked who was the first man on the moon they answer John Glen,or the Russians.In the end of the video we get to a full climax,when we see most people would support a war on a country they haven't even heard of.

Funny vid, but I think you can do the same in any big city in Western Europe and will be the same.

My experience with Americans wasn´t like that. They know that qe speak Catalan in Catalonia, Basque in the Basque Country, Galician in Galicia and think like that. My last time in the Bay Area they have problems to pronounce IKEA, but only you around here know how to do it properly.
