We're Doomed

The British on the whole like a nice little chuckle every now and then at our American cousins (stick with me on this people!). It's a fun little pastime, you know what I mean: statistics about how many US citizens don't know where Iraq is, or video footage showing the "average American citizen" failing at basic knowledge of the world... Over the pond we all have a laugh and congratulate ourselves on being smart.

Sigh.

"A new survey reveals that a quarter of Britons believe Winston Churchill never existed..."

Sigh.

I can't wait until the cockroaches evolve some more and take over...

I have never actually met an incredibly knowledge-deprived person that you read about in books like Freakonomics or see in documentaries (or talk shows).

And also, the UK has Karl Pilkington.
