it doesn't surprise me that some United States citizens don't remember when 9/11 happened. there could be many reasons.

could have been to young at the time to comprehend what took place
.
the event so effected them psychologically and the date just won't come to mind.

events that have happened scene that time have occupied their thoughts.

lack of education about the event.

so many different things have been said about it, have confused the facts in their minds

these are just a few of what i would call legitimate reasons why. next are a few for non legitimate.

to wrapped up in in who the next amercain idol will be.

didn't get the right app on their phone to be infromed.

didn't see it on jersey shore,

to busy tiring to keep up with all the trendy gadgets.

so as long as nobody they know was effected by it not all that important.

my point being, your always going to have shallow people every where, that doesn't make them dumb.
if you took a film crew to any country in the world, and asked them the same type questions, whether it is like in the op or from the post about chasers. you will find dummies every where,
to me this just reeks of more amercain bashing, not the op but the people who set out to do this.

obviously the reason is because the human body is setup to forget pain and 9/11 is a very painful memory

I remember the date of course...not so sure how many died (5000 ?) but what
REALLY sticks in my mind is how long it took me to FULLY disbelieve the
"official story"...THAT'S what I'm ashamed of!

While I agree that the majority of Americans are distracted and ignorant, to group everyone into a category is shallow, and racist. It's like saying "black people are bad" because there are black people in jail.


Erm.... What does the video have to do with racism? I think you need to go look at a dictionary.

For those of us who consider ourselves knowledgeable and educated, why should we spend our time laughing at things like these, feeling smart, and bashing the "sheep"..Why don't we get off our asses and do what we can to make things better? I've seen these videos, and yes they are hilarious, but once you think about it, it's terribly sad what a lot of people have become. If you know someone like that, don't look down on them, talk to them and educate them.

Very good post, and true to boot. I'm guilty of it myself. In fairness alot of people do know better, but opt to be superificial morons. There is a difference I think.

And the show is called 'Chasers War on Everything', for anyone interested. Good Aussie commentary

I've been to Europe and I also like to think I'm pretty good with geography...But, if you told me, "I'm from My Own World, Europe." I'd probably have a blank stare too...


I have to wonder how many people they go through to get the real moronic responses? In my personal experience, most individuals are fairly intelligent, it's when the "group mind" thing starts to happen that they turn into blithering idiots.

for some reason I just CAN'T believe this is real...are you sure this hasn't been overdubbed? This just can't be real!!!! Oh GOD help us if it's real...

I don't believe these people (especially) the older ones don't know....I once saw one of these kinds of videos and people couldn't answer "who was the first president" and "name some of the planets in our solar system" HOW are these people functioning? How do they have jobs??????????

I would love to see what american's response to "what happened during the 'financial crisis'?"

Y'all do know that the clip came from CNNN, right?

It is a comedy show. Therefore, the clip was manipulated to look like all of the
people they "interviewed" were a few fries short of a happy meal.

An earlier poster commented on wondering how many total people were asked this question
and came up with the "right" answers. This is entertainment people, it's obvious.

I'm sure that there are quite a few out there that know when 9/11 was, how many died, what cities/states were involved.
Yet, I am also sure there are less that know these answers.

Thing is, most Americans are not stupid, but there are many who are and could care less or just don't know or understand anything other than what they are fed. Unfortunately...they are the barometer by which the rest of us are judged...

I was 14 at the time and I still remember that it happened in 2001.

I don't think I would ever forget. Watched the whole thing on the TV in my 8th grade history class. Everyone was just shocked.

What are you talking about? Seriously! Everybody knows where Australia is, Mr. Smarter Than Us!


As mentioned in another thread today, I can't even bring myself to watch videos like these, as it brings home the reality that there is a huge evil draped over the world, casting ignorance on the human race. However, we have to be realistic if we are ever going to be of service to those that request it.

I´m from germany and even i can still recall the exact date and the year of this tragedy. I watched the whole event live at my house and couldn´t believe what just happened. But these kind of questions are quite common in comedy shows all around the world. And of course they don´t show when people gave the right answers that won´t be funny at all. 9/11 was a tragedy and effected the whole world not only the USA but some people will never forget. I´m one of them.

God bless america.
