Harvard students smart, but not so much.


Now, I’m not saying that all Americans need to know the capital of their neighbouring country, but at least some. Yeah, sure, maybe they edited it out those who answered correctly. But for the sake of this post, NOT A SINGLE American-born Harvard student knows the capital of Canada. Craziness.

I mean, as a Canadian university graduate I at least know the capital of the United States of America is Washington. Also, I know that since Seattle is in Washington, it’s probably where the White House is. D’uh. No rocket scientist needed here.

This Harvard video reminds me of Rick Mercer (Canada’s Jon Stewart, for American followers) asking Americans questions. This made many Canadians have a bout of the funnies.
