We've done one of these before and we were tragically quite bad but this is to see if we've improved on our general American knowledge... knowledge of general America... general America... okay so these are questions that most people should know, I've not looked at them - actually how will we know the answers? There's no answers on there. Then you'll have to tell us. That's what happened on the last one, we didn't go through the answers but most people told us in the comments so we're not gunna know how we've done, until it goes out and then we'll get all the people being like "you got this wrong", so you'll just have to tell us. Okay.... wow! That just came out like "ooookay". Question number 1, this is one of eleven questions, but I think if there are any terrible ones we should just skip over them. Okay sure. So Question 1: The capital city of America is New York, true or false? False. That is... false. What? No, sorry in my head it's because all through life, I go through life like New York is the capital of the world... well that's the thing, I did have to think about it a little bit because in the UK, we pretty much only know LA and New York and New York is like London and it's like NEW YORK and everyone assumes that's the capital but it's not it's Washington DC. So we got that right, tick! Okay next question. The currency used in America is the US Dollar, true or false? True, obviously true, duh. We're so good at this! Okay, the tallest mountain in America is Mount McKinley, true or false? Also, who calls a mountain Mount McKinley? You could think of a better name for it. I think it's Mount Rushmore, isn't it? How do you know that? Coz it's the one with Presidents faces in it, they carve Presidents faces into a mountain. Oh right, dunno why. Well lets say false then. False, I don't know that's mostly on you. How many states are there in America, 40, 50 or 60? I'll say 50, I think 50 too, 50 sounds true. Sounds about right doesn't it. Tick! What is the national bird of America? Probably a chicken. A chicken! Yeah! Yeah coz they love chicken. You eat chicken all the time, KFC, that's American. Please, just watch Cowspiracy and stop eating so much chicken. Seriously. Become a vegetarian and just cut down. Just cut down, you don't even have to be fully veggie. Yeah, your country is the problem, sorry! It's too much, too much. Okay, I'm gunna get hate! So much hate! Let's not all contribute towards it (America). What is the national flower of America? Rose, Iris or Sunflower? I didn't know you had a national flower. I'm gunna go sunflower. I thought an Iris was inside your eye. Yeah I did. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a national flower! What a weird thing to be a national thing! That's really weird. Or would it be a rose? That's like more of an English thing. English Rose. And like the Tudor Rose... I don't really know what I'm talking about. Yeah I know what you mean. Okay. What is the largest city in America? Probably LA? Is it? I don't know! Isn't LA really small? No I thought LA was massive and you have to have a car. Yeah we've heard that! Yeah! Someone told us you have to have a car, so it must be the biggest city! Wait, but there's gotta be big places. New Yorks probably big. Like isn't Texas like huge? Texas is huge but that's not a city, that's a state. Oh a state. Sorry! Houston... Hooston... what about Chicago? I'm just naming cities now! I don't know. What are the cities then, LA, New York, Chicago. That's pretty much it. That's it? They're the only cities in America! You're kidding? Is that all there are? No! Okay shall we submit for New York then? I think LA. LA it is! LA. Tick... I hope. Okay next question: How many white stars are there on the national flag of America. 50? Had to deal with this before. 30, 70 or 50? Coz there's one for every state that's what I've learnt from the comments in our latest quiz video. There's a star for every state so if we said there's 50 states then there should be 50 stars. Okay yeah, coz it'd be unfair if they left anyone out. Yeah, although what's a state that's like shocking... one that I forget exists is Wyoming. That's a state! I've never heard of that. Exactly, maybe they could leave them out of the flag. That's dreadful. Okay, write down three states of America. Oh, got this! You should make me do it coz I don't know any! No you can't have California, Texas or New York. You can't have those. FL... is that a state? That is a state. What does it stand for? Florida. Yep you got Florida. Woo! Okay another state, Oregon? Yeah that's one. But I only know that because my brother worked in Portland, Oregon. I work in Portland, Oregon and I was like right. Sounds like oregano. I hate oregano. Oh I love it! I hate it. Americans call it oregano, which I just think sounds weird. The Greek words the best one, 'rigany', rigany! I'm like dad don't put rigany on it I hate it! That's so good. He's like you like a mix Lia, I'm like no mix, I don't like rigany! So good. Yeah Oregano. Portland, Oregano. Oregon. Annnnnd, okay there are literally 50 to choose from... I'm quite good with states. California? No you can't have California. Why not? Coz I told you you can't have California, New York or Texas. Oh. So Washington. I take quizzes quite often on naming American states because I want to learn all of them. You're such a joke. I get about 35 out of 50. Let me name some, Idaho, Ohio, OH I KNOW OHIO! Yeah well done... pfft. What else, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico. Arizona, dammit. It's my favourite girls name. Arizona? You wanna call your daughter Arizona? No it's just a nice name for a girl, no it's not. Sorry if there's an Arizona watching, but it's not that nice. Yeah it is. Arizona, there's a drink called Arizona. Yeah so you're like "my daughters a drink". This my daughter Arizona, I just think it's a nice name. You just need to educate yourself, seriously. Shut up. Okay question 10. What is the name of the American national anthem? I was gunna say God Save the Queen but that's ours. is it *sings*, "by the dawn of the night"? I thought it was the one that goes "America, America... *sings*". What is the NAME of the national anthem....? America. Could be like The American Dream. It'd be very American for it to just be "America". The greatest country on earth: America. I don't know! Shall we take a guess. "Oh, America". Yeah I like that. Oh America! is the name of the American national anthem. Tick! Slash, God Save the Queen. Okay, 11. What famous American people do you know? Not many personally. Well I know Susan. That's not a general knowledge question, yeah it said like actors, singers, sportsmen, presidents. There should never be 11 questions on a quiz. It should be 10, but that's like a bonus question so the teacher can laugh at you. I know plenty of American actors. I do. Like everyone we watch is American. Yeah pretty much our media is saturated with American stuff. So how do you think that went for us? I'm gunna say we got about 6 or 7 out of 10. Yeah I think we probably got about 7 or 8 out of 10. Okay 75%. Yep. So if you could total up the scores if you know all the answers, let us know in the comments the percentage out of 100 please, percentages are all out of 100. and we look forward to the love mail in the comments, all of the lovely comments from angry Americans. Let's just open up the picture, just so you guys know how uneducated we are, yeah we know a lot about Britain but we don't know a lot about America. But do you know what, all of our, well not all of our patrons, but lots of our patrons are American and we love talking to them. I know. They literally, they're teaching us about America every time we speak to them. Coz I think they watch our channel and they're horrified so they're like "I must talk to them". If you're interested in Skyping with us on Patreon and becoming one of our patrons then we'll link that down below, so you can check that out, but if you don't want to that's fine as well. Yeah, you can not only educate us, you can just hang out with us on Skype. We do them every month, and the links are all below. Or if you hate us, instead of leaving a hate comment you could become a Patron, as pity? No I just thought they could spend 15 minutes saying hate comments to our faces! Instead of writing it down. Could you imagine that, it'd be awful! Like I'm just logging on to tell you how stupid you are! I'd love it because I'd be like, go on then! Say it to my face, go on. Oh no! You're like gunna be one of those people who pays people to hit you. No!!! That's disgusting. You know like in films where they give them $20 and they're like "hit me", no I don't have any things like that, people do that to get off on it! Hit me, no! Okay, or they pay to go and hit someone. Would you be that? No, I've got something to tell you off camera, anyway. Oh my god, tell me off camera! Bye!!!! Subscribe!
