Americans are asked to find North Korea on a map and you probably know where this is going.

Hello dave::
This reminds me of the Falklands War, when a similar question was asked to the British people ( do you know where the Falkland islands ) the vast majority said are they up Scotland ??? it just shows people lack of knowledge about geography ,next we will be ( " The End is Nigh" have a nice day dave!

I watch Pointless for my sins and the amount of contestants who have no idea of geography and history is unbelievable.

Yes GB, I remember the Falkland Islands very well, when I was at school some sixty odd years ago, I re-call that some BBC radio programmes for schools were directed at those islands. PeterP, I've always had an interest in history, especially social history. Geography, well, if I don't know where a country is, I usually have an idea in what area its in.
