As if Americans are the only folks on the whole damn planet that don't know Geography . . .

Will you ever make a post or thread that DOESN'T take a stab at America?

Hahahaha, I watched that as a little boy years ago. Teaches you a bit, but a bit out of date. Czechoslovakia definitely isn't around anymore.

Shut up, this video is from a cartoon show geared toward little children, I'm sure they will memorize the whole thing and recite by heart for the rest of their lives after watching that video.

I do like how they added cities in there too, they are also important.

Plus, how the hell do you add Singapore in a rhyme?

Singapore isn't mentioned, and neither are East Timor, Eritrea, and Vatican City (Micro Country)

Burma is now Myanmar, and this video is terribly out of date.

Still funny though.

Officially speaking, Tibet isn't a country either. And it's Cambodia, not Kampuchea.

Maybe that is all the Thread Starter knows...he gets his education from kiddie videos and comic books; no wonder he's always pushing that communist rhetoric...

Along with flame bait and mud slinging.

What he's trying to say is all American's are knuckle dragging neanderthals that we can't find our collective asses with a road map and a flashlight.

I enjoyed Geography in school and I make sure my son does as well.

OOOO, you're slick. You are going to ask a question about a country that has an official capitol and one that is a de-facto one and kinda is still in some respects. So if an American picks the old capitol, you would intentionally call it out and shout that "Oh, if you are so good at geography, why don't you know that you stupid American"

I see how this one would work.
