I wonder about some of the stats they use, like people not being able to find New York on a map. I know when I was taking those tests back in high school, I didn't put much, if any effort into them. I wonder if people are deliberately messing some of the stuff up. I could easily understand someone not knowing where Sri Lanka is, but New York?
Yeah, I knew that's why they were asking that question. I'm sure it's meant to be one of those "Eye Opening" things where we're all supposed to be shocked that people know more about TV pop culture than world events, but seriously, I don't even watch CSI and I knew it because the damn commercials are always playing. Hell, even in the grocery store they play them!
So I'm not too saddened by this news. I think what's even more sad is that people think it's bad that I know what city CSI started and don't know the world's population. Neither one of those facts means anything to me, so there's no reason for me to need to know either.
Missed pop growth, New Orleans wetlands, and CSI - I never watch it - I hate crime TV shows because they are ALL THE SAME! Why would I give a flying rip about where CSI was? May as well ask me what Joe Friday's sister's name is.
