I stumbled across these you tube videos that baffled me.

A man named Mark Dice goes around asking and fooling the population about basic history facts.

I've posted three that leave my jaw dropped along with their links.

"Young Americans think that president John F. Kennedy died this morning in a car accident."



www.youtube.com...

"Americans who don't know the capital of the United States."



www.youtube.com...

"Al Qaeda Base on the moon."



www.youtube.com...

Of course we all know he interviewed many more people that could call him out or answer the questions correctly.

He only showed the ones who were clueless, but still their answers are unbelievable.

They probably make-up a good percentage of the voting public.

A huge percentage of YouTube videos like this are casted and scripted. Stupid people = views and views = money.

A huge portion of persons "educated" in the public school systems over the past 20 years are just this ignorant---no script or cast necessary.
Don't believe me? Go out and ask them the very same questions Mark Dice is asking.

Even if these videos are scripted...

Same answers.

I second what diggindirt said.

I forget my own address sometimes, people put on the spot make mistakes because they're nervous. These are also the worst, I'm sure many many more were cut.

Assume everything on YouTube like this is scripted too, though I don't think these were.

For the record it took me a few seconds on Washington DC. I very much know that, but sometimes we just blank. Hard.
