The average Belgian...

Response to What I meant was...

...can name more world leaders because his entire country is the size of the state of Vermont, for chrissakes. Of course he's going to be more knowledgable about world leaders...they live down the bloody street from him, practically!

Why compare apples to oranges? My money is on the average American knowing more about world events than say, the average Chinese, Indonesian, Russian, or Brazilian. Large, mostly continental countries without dozens of small bordering "countries" like Belgium.

But seriously, why does it matter how many world leaders one can name? I used to be able to name my chain of command, from memory...all the way from Drill Sergeant Law, to First Sergeant Fisk...up to President George H.W. Bush. I've forgotten damn near everyone now. Doesn't make me a bad person.
