While it is not the Americans I know, Americans' knowledge of world geography is legendarily bad. I heard one explanation being that Americans only get two weeks of holidays each year and so don't travel much. Nonsense. You learn geography and about the world at school. Well we do, or used to at least. As an adult, you want to learn a bit about the world, and if you are fighting to impose your form of democracy in a foreign country, surely you want to know where it is located.
I got lost in the world of You Tube once again and I looked at a video of an American guy talking in different American accents. There are some 30 named accents, it would seem. We Australians could not distinguish too many. But when I heard the Californian accent, I immediately thought that is how private school girls on the tram talk. Not so much the sounds, but the words and expressions.
I rather like the Southern States drawl and the Brooklyn Jewish accent.
Then I saw the hottest guy discussing the different words for the same thing that Australians and Americans use.
Eventually I ended my You Tube American v England viewing back in Australia with a clip from an old Chaser episode. It is only slightly amusing, rather than hilarious, and mercifully brief.
