  • Hi we're Joel & Lia and today we're going to be doing a general American quiz.

  • 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!!!!
