Watching the stupid American video caused me to wonder, what facts are important? What information can we not live without. The answers cannot be geo or ethnocentric, simply, knowledge needed to live. Not so simple, and potentially huge in scope. Given that potential, limits must be placed... say 20. The question is what are the 20 most important things to know. This should be interesting.....
