Seeing those people answers is really quite remarkable, but they obviously [I hope :lol] left for the purpose of making a fun tape all those Americans out the video loop who are NOT that stupid.

It’s easy to get the same results for making such a fun tape in any other country too.

O wait, perhaps not the Netherlands.

Never have I used so many smileys in one post, but that is some golden quality entertainment. I'm sure not all Americans are that stupid, but some of those answers were beyond classic. S&F.

Ok... we all are really not that uninformed as most (I hope) would agree.

Hi Nephi! S&F!

The average of all american IQ's is in the 90s

legally retarded is an IQ of 75 and below. genius is an IQ of 140 and above. which is 98 closer to? genius or legally retarded? here is a visual aid, where l = the middle inbetween legally retarded and genius, and each dot = 1 IQ point:

75......................98..........l...............................140


legally retarded is an IQ of 75. i wouldn't say the majority or average of Americas' citizens are towards the genius range considering the national average IQ is closer to legally retarded than genius.


here is part two:

part two:


i think fear and hate have direct and indirect effects on our IQs. As well as how much others can manipulate people with lower IQs. IQs are directly related to how receptive one is to new information, and how effectively they adapt to it. if one is afraid of the information, they are more likely to be less receptive to it, people usually run from what they are scared of ..... or they fight it, which is still less receptive than acceptance. fight or flight are not all the options, but fear and hate are not receptive to new information, thus may not be aware of all the options available.

perhaps fear and hate even have side affects, but whether the pros outway the cons seems to be up to the individual.

I currently live in central Illjnois. The majority of people in this town are not very intelligent at all when it comes to knowing what is going on in the world. I'm not paranoid. I'm surrounded by idiots. And Fox "News" brags that they have high ratings while the likes of Glenn Beck speaks at a 5th grade level to his audiences. Psyops and Martial Law sucks.

these are some of the thoughts i entertain,

I remember a journalist asking "the most stupid german kid": "What is the president of America by profession?"...
He didn´t knew.

Your clip was a very good laugh!

I wondered that too. Kentucky Fried Chicken would be my first and only guess really. I hope we don't make our selves look stupid when some one comes along and points out the obvious.

I think the joke was that he said he didn't know what state KFC came from but he knew that it meant Kentucky Fried Chicken

It could also mean
Kids for Christ
Kenya Flower Council
Korean Film Council
Kilmarnock Football Club
Knox Farmers Cooperative
Kennedy Flight Center

To name but a few

To be honest I could visit my local town here in Oxfordshire with a video camera and record some really stupid British people. America certainly doesn't have the monopoly on stupid.

I doubt many of the local kids on the London estate I live in could even find England on a map to be honest, probably some of the adults too

Well, no-one could call the American people stupid after watching those video's - it would be politically incorrect. Mentally disabled is the correct term ..

The whole thing can be summed up that Americans as a whole are not stupid, they have simply been played as fools. They have been fed "new information" as half truths for a long time, which leads them to come to illogical conclusions. Since most belong to "faith" based religions, it is not surprising they put faith in what they hear on the news, talk shows,etc. and from what they hear from people of authority. At this stage, it is too much for them to give up their lifetime beliefs and ploitical dogma. Accepting that your beliefs are mainly bs, is not an easy task to undertake, so many will always continue forward blindly. I am not sure I know what the answer is.

actually, unless it has changed and i didn't get the memo, i believe "Developmentally Disabled" is the politically correct term.

but actually, i think we can give the MSM (Mental Systems Manipulators ...um... i mean Main Stream Media) a round of applause for speaking to the American public at a 5th grade level some gratitude for a job well done dumbing down Americans.


Psychological Warfare and News Networks do not mix well together, in my professional opinion.

Why wouldn't Americans' STUPIDITY be a threat to National Security????

Duh, i don't know .... maybe Martial Law depends upon stupidity to accomplish it's objectives?

Yay, another look how stupid Americans are.

I am sure they showed all the people that answered correctly or told the camera man and interviewer to take a flying leap.

Let me tell you about going up to people with cameras.

Those that would actually talk to them, are the type that watch the propaganda tube. They are people that want attention like the people they see on the telly.

I would bet that 50% of the people just walked away or told them to piss off.

BUT, if they were to show that, I guess the video would not be as funny. haha

And walking away from people who are asking questions or telling them to piss off is a sign of intelligence and/or Higher IQ why?
