Why do you want to fight with me? Sure, some names changed but that shouldn't be much of a problem if one learned also something about the WW1 or WW2 or anything about the 20th century. And anyway, I'm pretty sure Greece is where it always has been but only one person wrote it on the map and even then it was with a question mark.

On a 'positive' note, at least you're not constantly ignored like most folk.

Bill Bryson (extract from Notes from a Big Country)

A few years ago an organization called the National Endowment for the Humanities tested 8,000 American high school seniors and found that a very large number of them didn't know, well, anything.
Two-thirds had no idea when the US Civil War took place or which president penned the Gettysburg Address. Roughly the same proportion could not identify Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill or Charles de Gaulle. A third thought that Franklin Roosevelt was president during the Vietnam War and that Columbus sailed to America after 1750. Forty-two per cent - this is my favourite - couldn't name a single country in Asia. <T(er)TF.

I am not fighting with you. Merely expressing a different opinion I just don't think that the whole world should know the European geography off by heart.

Neither Americans nor Europeans would generally do well at all naming provinces in China or countries in Africa, and these will be by far the most populous regions of the planet in another 20 or 30 years. Asia already is.

I admit that not knowing African countries is shameful but provinces in China? Really?

Who would have thought a geography discussions would bring scoobs back

But yes, by the way, there's a difference between locating a country on a map and simply naming it. Even if you just listen to the news occasionally you should be able to name a lot of countries. I could name at least 20 countries in Africa off the top of my head even if I can't put them on a map. That's why it's mind-boggling that some people can't name even 15 countries in Europe. I mean, it doesn't even have to be history or the news, you can learn a lot of geography simply by following a sport.

Europe is becoming less and less significant in the world.

LOL, we have an expression - "it's like Chinese for me" meaning it's something completely not understandable, I guess that's why I'd never try learning Chinese. I have a relative that's studied Chinese, not that it'd help. She's not a very close relative.

Why do you do unashamed a**licking when you're aware that it's a**licking?

Europe was once viewed as the center of the world and that's clearly no longer the case but to suggest that it's becoming less and less significant in the world is ludicrous.

we have the very same expression. "het is chinees voor mij"

"It's all Greek to me" is our saying. Not Chinese.

Hi Melanie! I can read the Greek alphabet so it wouldn't be too bad for me. Studied ancient Russian and Greek.

Our saying is "it's like the Chinese ABC" (kā ķīniešu ābece) which is funny because the Chinese has no ABC.
