I notice that a lot of people are also just plain "flabbergasted" when asked a question that they really *should* know, and they end up answering
Countless times I have been asked questions about bands I love, or movies I have watched countless times, or anything that *should* be in my general
knowledge, but because I have been asked suddenly and had no idea I was about to be asked this seemingly simple question, I just said the first thing
that popped into my mind. Which was inevitably wrong, even just by a little bit.
I don't find it so unbelievable that if some people were asked, "Does the sun revolve around the Earth??" that they answer, "Yes!! I mean ..
wait... NO!". and the questioners just take the first answer.
As for some Americans not being able to find America on the map?? Wow. That's just... Wow. Have they never seen an atlas before? I really don't know
what to say to that
