a small village just north of surrey.
hilarious. they didn't know where america was either.
I am definitely buying my niece an atlas for Christmas
that doesn't even surprise me.
this doesnt suprise me one bit
it's well easy to spot. We're the runty little island that looks like it's running away in a very effete manner from the great angry nobbly arm of Scandinavia
Also. Moldova. Sorry to the 3,400,000 odd people living there, but frankly, you should just cease to exist and save us all the embarassment.
because they failed to breakdown the number of children into ages just 6 - 14.
I am allowed to Poo poo this as being worrying as I can identify all countries of the world (yes including africa) and all american states and counties of britain so if I can do this then I am allowed to then throw away this sort of knowledge as mostly trivia.....far more important is knowing something about the country....what it is like.....
Actually I am a hippocrit because I often DIS politicians and Americans for not knowing about all the countries of the world......actually no Im not being hippocritical....I mean the president of the US should know and be able to identify all countries.....why not? shouldnt that be part of a President exam?
Do you think Bush knows all his US states/ state capitals and US presidents....actually for that matter does our foreign secretary? Like I say I do (not the US presidents...to my chagrin) so I can dis this report....I think....
in other news sorry about the crap map game, it's all I could find at that moment. There are plenty more out there. Still, I bet you're all just complaining because you got minus two million points.
the states shapes and sizes are wrong....also in Africa game what about rwanda burundi lesotho swaziland guinea bissau, equatorial guinea, djibouti, mauritius, seychelles, cape verde, Komoros.......actually no....more importantly why wasnt there a carribean game or an asian game or a pacific game
makes a good point. at 6 i dont think i could have located iraq or any other countries we were fighting at the time. why does a 6 old need to know that anyway? so i would guess all the 6 year olds failed to locate the countries whilst the older pupils could locate the countries. if they the break down of what age groups could identify what itd be much more valuable.
or perhaps they just interviewed stupid kids, 1000 is hardly alot.
on the geography test. go me.
and half my class is bulgarian/romanian/hungarian/polish/slovenian.
i guessed the others.
I'll work on it. I got bulgaria, romania, poland, hungary.
I had problems with Latvia, Estonia, Macedonia, etc.
AND I CERTAINLY DIDN'T NEED THREE GOES TO IDENTIFY IT
i know someone who was so ashamed that they came from macedonia, they pretended to me that they were greek. hmm..
Full Points, motherfucker.
That's what you get when you read an' shit, yo!
