Anyway, i noticed on the world colour coded map, U.S.A is green, Canada is Red, but then there is another country called U.S in green aswell....

Alaska and Hawaii a both US states a that are not connected to the mainland USA. They still maintain the same amount of power as any other state, however. In fact, our other potential Vice President for the 2008 election, Sarah Palin, was governor of Alaska.

Puerto Rico, just southeast of Cuba, is also American territory. However, Puerto Rico has not decided to become an actual state and thus has no say in our government and does not have to pay taxes. It does, however, receive military aid from the US.

That's not to say that he shouldn't be aware of these things... but the average American (including myself) probably would not be able to name every country in Europe on a blank map.

Lets not forget, back in the 80's, when asked to locate the Soviet Union, something like 25% of kids pointed to Central America...

So then is JJ not from the US? Still seems pretty ignorant to me. I mean, most Americans can't point out countries in Europe, but doesn't Europe pride itself with being smarter than the average American? Aren't there TV shows in Britain specifically about how dumb the average American is?

I'd also like to add during my entire time in education in the U.K. we barely looked at your country at all. We we never told all 50 States of America. We weren't told about Americian held territories, our Geography was much more general than that.

We weren't taught your history either, as it mainly focused on ours and ancient civilations.

JJ is from the U.K, same as me, so he got the same education I got. And to answer your question Rot, no there is no such program, but we do mock your politicians, as well as our own, as well as the occasional digg at the Americian stereotype.

So it works both ways. You don't know much about Europe, we don't know much about the U.S.

I could probably name most European countries... until I got to the small ones around Serbia. Western Europe is pretty easy, though.

I think you mean Australian TV shows... but Australians are just a sorry lot of sheep who put up with an oppressive government which is opposed to Nuclear Energy and Videogames.

I DO HATE THOSE AUSTRALIANS!!!
