Another year, another survey showing Americans don't know squat about geography. But there are some neat little tidbits behind the main story. Like the fact that more Americans than Europeans from various countries knew about El Niño. Probably because it's in the media over here so often, whereas it doesn't directly impact Europe, so their papers don't carry the story. And Mr. Plessl would be happy to hear that one of the questions with the best scores worldwide is Which continent has the highest percentage of its population infected with HIV?

I wish they gave you the percent who guessed each wrong answer. I want to know how many people thought Mexico was in Australia.
