OH my goodness. That is sad.
I believe I learned about the Titanic in school....about 45 years ago. Shows you the state of our school system now days.
But I worked with two young college graduates that didn't know the United States revolted against Britain. One didn't have a clue and the other thought it might be Spain.
Love the title.
Women shouldn’t be allowed to vote
I've heard some segments where an interviewer goes out among young people..i'm talking college students here. He asks simple questions about history, current events, stuff like that. It actually makes you want to cry. And these same students, they're giggling all the way through it. They Revel in their ignorance.
Could be trolling?
A newspaper editor told me, "I hever understood the assassination of John Kennedy until I saw the movie "JFK". I laughed and said, "It's a movie, for god's sake."
"But, it was accurate. It was factual."
"I reemmber Garrison. He didn't look like Kevin Costner, he didn't sound like Keven Coster and he seemed to be a nut."
Some people can't separate fact and fiction. And, it goes back in history....forever.
Perhaps you need to pay for someone to tellyou.
Idiocracy is alive and well today.
Anybody that does not find this funny has absolutely no sense of humor.
knowing that Titanic is real event is hardly of consequence, it's minor historical trivia sensationalized by Hollywood...it's not even close to the worst loss of life in a purely civilian scenario and how many people know that? very, very, very few, because Hollywood doesn't care...
not knowing your countries important historical event is disappointing...that many people don't put much importance on history is why politicians keep making the same stupid errors...
