Didn't find it funny, except the Australian PM part. But Australia is so far from US, and didn't have much relevance to the lives of most Americans. Ignorant people exist everywhere. I'm quite sure you'll get such answers in any other country if you use a random sample in the street. Some questions have no relevance to most Americans.

Hi rosemummy!

I agree with you.I don't know why they do like this.

I am not support the TV shows.Actually,I am against them.Recently we saw a German TV shows tell that "singaporeans are tremendously crazy".I want to comfort my fellow singaporeans,so that I start this thread.You can find this thread "singaporeans are tremendously crazy" under chi chat and find my comment as well.Thanks for your view.

Americans are generally concerned about their own country and because the US is so big, there is enough to occupy themselves with. So one cannot really blame them for not knowing much about the rest of the world.

On the other hand, those of us who have worked with Americans will know that they always act very confidently.. even when they are ignorant about certain topics. So maybe the truth is that they are not more stupid than most people, but they do "talk big" more often than most.

The net effect is they talk more than they know or can do.
