I'm absolutely not a fan of Early U.S. History, but HOW do people not know this stuff? What a failure of our education system!! I just can't stand that era of history, and I know all of this stuff.

I stand amazed.

I probably knew it at some point in time, but have long since destroyed the braincells holding on to that information.

I somewhat remember some of that stuff. Mostly from middle school. But hundreds of organic molecules arranged in different ways kind of pushes stuff out...lol. Damn Organic Chem.

I suppose a person only has so much RAM. But still, this is stuff we should all know.

When I'm President, I'll make sure the Education system is better. ;-D

Well, learning American history in the country is sort of bogus. You don't really know what is the truth, and it all seems so biased torwards America always looking like the good guys, which is totally not true all of the time.
