Yeah same here.


Most people dont believe it cause of the whole "The moon does not have wind so why is the Flag swaying like it does".

Well the MOON has no atmosphere but that does not mean it cant create vacuums. So when they were having trouble placing the flag pole in to the ground they had to bang on it just so it would stay in place. That banging created enough force for the flag to start moving. And without there being any resistance in the atmosphere it was able to remain swaying for a much longer time then it would here on earth.

Ehh, I doubt the UFC will ever be bigger than football anywhere other than America. Certainly not Brazil.

Also, people in general are rather stupid, not just us fat head Americans. I imagine I could take those same questions to a busy street in any country and pick out dim-wits so I could stroke my own ego. Fun stuff, but some of those morons made my head hurt as soon as they opened their mouths.

Finally, I KNOW the moon landing is fake because I knew a guy who knew the guy who filmed it in his basement here in New Orleans! True story!

I was going to say "Yeah I know Americans arent that stupid, but its just for fun", but you and your tin foil hat ruined any chance of that with the last comment.

With the rapidly growing Hispanic community, soccer will probably get huge in the US in the next couple of decades.

Here's the full video



all of this stuff is completely bewildering to me.

They even get fooled that Australia on a map is France, North Korea, Iran etc.
Kind of ironic that an Australian would be having a laugh at expense of those obvious idiots. They probably had to take 800 interviews to get those few.

Anyway, if you did the same survey in Australia, you would need a lot less then 800.

Please explain the irony and how you came up with that projection, until then your comment is incredibly idiotic and unnecessary.

Also I never claimed that the average Australian was more intelligent than the average person from anywhere else. I believe the education system in Australia might be a little better than the US and I can back that with some stats if you want to get pedantic.

For the record I wouldn't even care if Australia was the least intelligent nation on the planet, it sure as hell doesn't feel like the average person here can keep up in an intellectual discussion and based on your comment i'd assume that's the same everywhere.

Ever heard the one about the Brit who moved to the midwest? He felt really out of place there, and eventually sought counseling. So his psychiatrist told him he should sign up for electro-shock therapy. They'd zap his brains a couple of times and he'd feel right at home. Since he was feeling quite depressed about not being able to connect with his new neighbours or his wife's family, he agreed.

After the treatment, the doctor told him they had bad news. "We accidentally used double the voltage." He said. Upon hearing this distressing news the guy simply smiled and replied "No worries, mate."
