    Well...the fact that they had enough responses to make an internet-length video should tell you something. He's not asking questions about the War of 1812, all of those assholes actually lived through 9/11.

    Millennials are bad but the baby boomers are the absolute worst generation.

    meh...I'm a millennial, I remember 9/11, the day in general. Easily answered these questions, and I don't even live in the U.S. You'll always find a large number of people who just don't pay attention to the news or whats going on in the world. If they didn't know what 9/11 was that would be shocking. You would would be amazed how many people don't know where the pacific or atlantic oceans are.

    This man would agree with you.

    KANSAS CITY, Kan. – A 70-year-old man charged with robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank said he did it because he preferred a jail cell over living with his wife.

    Lawrence John Ripple is charged in federal court with the Friday afternoon robbery of the Bank of Labor at 756 Minnesota Ave.

    According to court documents, Ripple handed a teller a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money.”

    The teller complied.

    But instead of fleeing, Ripple took the money and then took a seat in the bank lobby, according to the documents.


    When a bank security guard approached him, Ripple told the guard, “I’m the guy you’re looking for.”

    The guard took the money from Ripple and held him until police arrived, which wasn’t long, because Kansas City, Kan., police headquarters is on the same block.

    When he was questioned later by investigators, Ripple told him that he and his wife had argued and he “no longer wanted to be in that situation,” according to the documents.

    “Ripple wrote out his demand note in front of his wife and told her he’d rather be in jail than at home,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit filed in support of the robbery charge.

    That is funny, but a lot of those kids were young children at the time.

    I lived through the second half of the war in Vietnam, but I know very little about it except what I've seen in movies and documentaries. I don't even remember it being covered in history class when I was in high school in the 80s.

    Where does he do these anyway? Orange County?

    Trump -vs- Clinton.....

    Well no wonder.

    It's certainly clear now..... we're fucked. Good and thoroughly fucked.

    There are simply too many complete morons in the United States capable of tainting any election.

    Are we really that fucking stupid?

    Seriously.

    Because if we are, no joke at all, we truly are fucked.

    It's democracy. No matter how smart you are, how dumb you are, how rich you are, how poor you are.....we all have equal say. That's the idea anyway.

    I kind of like the idea of having to pass some kind of test in order to vote. We don't just give everyone a driver's license. Why should we just give everyone the right to decide who will be the world's most powerful leader? Let's make sure they at least have some basic knowledge. Sounds fair to me.

    In 2007 I was visiting my old university and sat in on one of the computer ethics classes my one of my old professors was teaching. One topic they were going over was the the amount of data the east german secret police were keeping on people and not one kid in the class ever heard of the berlin wall.

    I think you meant your 42 and your parents were baby boomers, not millenials.

    I really like the idea of giving potential voters some type of test to pass in order to have their vote counted.

    You mentioned needing a license to drive. I'll give you another one, you need a license to catch a fish.

    Getting a license to vote makes a lot of sense to me. Then perhaps we can get out of this Bush / Clinton death-grip that's been doing on for the last 3 decades.

    So the question is.....
