Actually we don't count with such large numbers as a trillion daily, so it's easy to make that mistake.

Their numbers only reach to a billion at most.

How can you call them stupid just based on that? Those are the sort of numbers that normal people don't have to deal with - ever.

''Actually we don't count with such large numbers as a trillion daily'' So you wanna say that Americans do not know /care how much money they owe to the rest of the world?

Of course it's hard, how often do you use the world trillion in your everyday life? Has nothing to do with people being "dumb". It's like asking some random guy on the street about a video game they've never played and call them "dumb" if they don't know the answer.

Actually it's not that easy:

At least not for me as European, I had to think for a bit :)
Trillion in America = billion in Europe.

comment removed, had alot typed out, in hopes i can reason with some of you, but cant post a big enough post, and really, its not worth the trouble.. Hatemongers.. THATS what people should really be ashamed of, not being unable to answer the easy question in the video.. Shame on all of you.

well, other then #(removed comment) said, its some simple fact, that most ppl here in europe know about. or let me put it his way: everyone i know for sure knows:

we also understand that you use a slightly different number system, so that between your billion and ours there is a factor of 1000

please US citizens just look up the number that tells you abouth the financial depths of your country. you would be suprised, how fast you can understand what a trillion means.

or just stick with the perspective of the ppl in this video
"like 3 million?? i dont know :S"

Who care about the system or who's right, fact is some of the answers were just totally retarded . People honestly think that the budget for the next year for the entire united states is a few hundred million that's using there brains.

I wouldnt be so harsh as to call all these people stupid, but I would go as far to say they are lacking in some common sense.

It looks like the Germans and Brits don't fare any better in a question and answer test on the street. This can happen anywhere on earth.

Interviews like this say nothing whatsoever about average knowledge in a population. They don't show you the ones who get the answer correct, or save it until the end. And even the "first one to get it right" comment means nothing out of context. When was that guy interviewed, in relation to the others?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - you can go to any country on this planet and make the same kind of video. Any populace can look entirely composed of idiots with a small amount of editing.

To put it in perspective 1 million seconds is 11.2 days. ! trillion seconds is 32,000 years. Remember that, then realize that The democrats spent 7 trillion dollars in a year and a half and we have nothing to show for it.start teaching your children Chinese now.They can learn how the black messiah dealt the death blow to a once great country.
