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 "
