Look, we’re not all scholars here, I get that. There is no possible way to retain everything we’ve learned since we’ve practically been in school since birth. We’ve learned plenty of useless things through the years:
- How to play the recorder: meh
- Memorizing the periodic table: not very practical
- The current vice president’s name: um yeah, you should know this
However, when a handful of Texas Tech students were asked this seemingly simple, relevant question, only one answered correctly. While the video highlights Texas Tech students, I can only assume that students everywhere would have the same dumbfounded reactions.
Maybe the video was edited to prove a point and make college students appear to be clueless, privileged, young adults. I sure hope so, because I certainly don’t want to live in a world where we are more knowledgeable on Snooki than we are on our nation’s leaders..
