That may be so but at least we have a news service on the radio & TV that 
covers more than just the UK. Try that in the US you have to hunt down a news 
program to find news of outside of the states.

	 Most brit adults have a pretty fair idea of where other countries are, 
unlike the Yanks who are pretty clue less ask the australians they have a 
whole range of yank jokes like we have blond or essex girl jokes . all to do 
with Yankee tourists and their enquiries.

	A fairly typical scenario:- Viet Nam war zone I amongst others are hunting 
for intell in vietnamese long house. I pick up a chair that is foldable and 
made from one piece of wood. I am admiring the workmanship when a yank 
officer walks in asked what the F am I looking at so i telling him I am 
admiring a chair constructed with out the use of screws or nails. He grabbed 
the chair and smashed it saying and I quote" that because they are too f'ing  
stupid to have invented nails "
