Here's a bit of the flip side and somewhat refreshing.
Close friends little guy is 4.5 yrs old.
Knows how to milk the goats, cow, helps out in the kitchen, cuts up the vegetables, can steer the tractor, name 18 out of 20 owl species from just looking at a picture and the sound, at the age of 4.
There is hope yet for a few-because this little guy isn't going to the regular school and being wrecked by the system.
Yes he can tell us what time it is by looking at the clock.

MIND BLOWING - Our Youth Knows NOTHING!​


if this is where The Education System has Gone, Every Single Teacher Should Be fired !

I see, hear examples of these things, and the thing that comes to mind is where in hell are the parents of these young folks?
Seriously one has to wonder how could a parent stand by, and watch this in front of them everyday without ever noticing, and doing something about it.
What a sad world this turning into-these are going to be the ones that are never going to have any chance of surviving anything.

I blame smart phones and parents. Back in the day, I’m only in my 30s mind you, we didn’t have easy access to much. It took first hand knowledge to learn how to do much of anything. Now it’s all a google search away.

The ‘man on the street’ type interviews have a huge inheritance flaw.

The producers would only show the youth who don’t have the right answers.

That being said, I love the production, and “wow”, these kids are dumb. I Fully blame the parents.

Yea I almost wonder if these are all coming from a Big Party of Drinkers,
Or are all hopped up with One thing on their Minds & It's not Reality.

Honestly I could see where if I Was sporting a one track Mind at the Moment and someone Asked me a Trivia Question I Could go Blank. Especially if I Really didn't give a Crap.

But with the Exception of the One on number of Continents,
All were obvious. I Sucked at Geography & Never even Thought about that . I always figured I didn't need to Know where Europe is on a map. the pilot on the plane will know. I had to google That one to Learn :tongue3:
But now that I'm out of school I do Love to Learn :coffee2:

Anyone who’s 30’ or older realizes you are far from competent (many of us anyhow) in you late twenty’s and before.

It’s all about mental fortitude. The desire to know things, the drive to understand and be able to convey it. Many of the younger people don’t desire a deeper understanding and are only operating on a understanding acquired by necessity to pass a test. Once that test is past so is most the knowledge.

A huge number of factors here but I think a lack of understanding of one’s self is the key.

Then again some people are just plum stupid. That’s always important to recognize. That desire to know things isn’t present in everyone.

That’s cool, I just wish they would wear special hats or something so we could see them at a distance.
