Back to North Korea
which is the biggest story of the day if not the year.
People are understandably very worked up about this.
According to new poll , this poll was taken before the president's threat today,
A majority of American, 75%, believe that
North Korea's nuclear program is a critical threat to the United States.
But what I wonder is how many American even know where North Korea is,
so we went out onto Hollywood Boulevard
while it's still here.
This is what we learned.
Do you think the United States should consider military action against North Korea?
I would say yes.
And where exactly is North Korea?
Well it's, as far as ... on the map?
Umm... I don't know.
I am horrible at geography.
Take a guess.
Up here somewhere?
And where exactly is North Korea
Oh God... Here we go. Ummm... uhhh...
I am gonna guess in... somewhere near here.
And it's the Middle East.
Yeah, so no.
I think is up top.
I don't know. I really don't remember.
You take a guess?
I know this is Africa.
Is it somewhere up here?
That is Europe.
That is Europe.
You know I am really good at geography, but this is very embarrassing
because I don't even remember where the (beep) North Korea is.
Excuse my language.
Take a guess.
Take a guess?
Somewhere out here?
Should we consider military action against North Korea?
I believe so.
And where is North Korea?
North Korea?
Uh... hold on.
It's somewhere over in this area, I believe.
it's in Asia.
Unless they moved it.
General vicinity.
Is it over here somewhere?
Oh no, that's the Arctic.
Where is North Korea?
Oh shoot. Umm... I wanna say somewhere in here, that area.
That's the Middle East. We already there.
That's Canada.
The scariest part about North Korea is that it could be anywhere.
Anywhere in here?
Hum... This is... it's not over here?
Australia. They've done nothing to us.
Right there.
No, wrong again.
Is it here?
No, that's South America.
Right there.
That's India.
That one right there?
No I think that is Mongolia.
I don't know. Maybe on here.
Restart the Vietnam War?
I have no idea.
Hey, in order to make an omelet you've got to break a few eggs, right?
I am not a geographer like.
- There. - No. - There. - No. - There.
You want a hint?
- Yeah! - It's right above South Korea.
- Here? - You just started World War 3.
Can you at least point to where you are right now?
Yeah, over here.
Oh, nail it.
I'm gonna say right there.
That's it!
Is it real?
No, it's not.
- Right there. - What?!
All right, well, you know, it's...
By the way, right here in our audience!
We spotted a celebrity in our audience.
Where are you from or do you even know?
I am from Virginia.
You're from Virginia. Yeah, and that's it.
You've never seen North Korea on the map
Apparently not.
Would you be able to get home do you think or...
No, actually no.
Did you finally figure out the...
I did, I did.
And do you think now you could remember where it is?
- Yeah. - You do. - Yeah.
Okay. All right we will find you again in a year,
and we'll test you then, okay?
We will let you go, okay?

1work up 0:05
work up 這個用法雖然看起來很簡單常見,但其實它卻包含了很多意思!在這部影片中 work up 有著「激發、激起 (情感或某種狀態)」的含義。另外 work up 也有「逐步建立、發展」的意思。
It took the company quite some time to work up a market for its products.

The thunderstorm began to work up.

2poll 0:06
poll 可以當作動詞或名詞使用:作為名詞的時候,指的是「民意調查」的意思;作為動詞時則有「獲得 (多少) 選票、對...進行民意調查 」。另外像是 the polls 就是在說「投票處」,go to the polls 則能替代 vote 來使用,意思是「去投票」。
This time, however, poll after poll confirms that the public has switched.

5nail it3:18
nail 雖然有「釘子、指甲」的意思,但常常聽到影集或電視中會說 "You nailed it!",絕對不傻傻地以為他在說你釘了一個釘子!這句話可以用來稱讚別人,意思是「說話切中要點」或是「某人表現很好」。

Jeff: 超棒的,那天觀眾超級熱情的。

看完這部影片,小 V 反思了一下,在這個資訊爆炸的時代,作為一個合格的網路公民,在判斷是是非非時,應該都要有認真了解過整個議題的前提才行。要自己掌握資訊,千萬別讓資訊掌控了你我!
