Video: Children are our Future…Can You Name A Country?

I have to admit that I am not as good as I once was when it comes to naming and locating foreign countries on a blank map of the world. At one time, during my 30s-50s, I could probably name and point to a majority of the countries in the world. Once the Soviet Union broke up and new countries were formed, I just lost track. I admit, I should now know more than I do about world geography, but I do know a fair amount. I would venture to say I am at least average if not a bit above.

On the Jimmy Kimmel show the other day, they stopped people and asked them if they could identify just one country on a map of the world. I was surprised that there seemed to be a significant number of people who could not name and point to one foreign country. Some managed to name continents, but very few could identify a single country.

There is one bright exception in the video below; hence the title of this post!

Obviously, the video was edited and most likely they were very selective in the portions of the recordings they chose to include. I will leave it up to JBRish readers to draw their own conclusions.

Ahem! How many countries can you name?

Notes from the YouTube Video Page:

“Donald Trump is overseas visiting Belgium, England, Scotland and then his pal Putin in Russia. It is imperative that America has strong relationships with and knowledge about other nations, and that responsibility extends to all of us. So we came up with a test and went out on the street to ask people passing by, to name any country on a map. It didn’t go well.”

Video: Baby Elephant Needs a Lullaby to Sleep

From the YouTube page:

Faamai wants Lek to sing a lullaby to baby elephant, Thong Ae

While I was meeting with visitors, Faa Mai suddenly intruded our talk with clear intent. She pushed me along out into the field, directing me somewhere and I wondered what it was that she really wanted. Finally FaaMai took me to see the little Thong Ae, whom she wants to adopt as her own. In the end, it sees as if FaaMai wanted me to lullaby her little friend, as she is so fond when i sing a lullaby to her. It is so beautiful to see my little girl who has such a heart of care. I am so proud of this girl ! at Elephant Nature Park.

Video: Can You Accurately Assess Your Skills

Why incompetent people think they’re amazing! – David Dunning

The video below explains how the Dunning-Kruger Effect distorts the ability of some people to accurately assess their skill level in a certain area. As the video explains, one study found that 88% of Americans rated themselves as “above average” drivers. This is mathematically impossible of course.

Watch the video below to understand this effect and how it might alter your abilities to accurately assess your various skill levels.

Vide-Ohs: Driving Home No Texting While Driving

While the beginning of this video may seem funny in a Chaplanesque way, the message is anything but humorous. This is part of the “It Can Wait” promotion to encourage people not to text when it can be harmful to themselves or others. This public service announcement was created by the Western Cape Government, South Africa.

It is short, to the point and powerful!

Texting and walking is difficult enough just watch the video!

Vide_Ohs: Net Neutrality – A Whopper of a Story

If anyone has difficulty understanding the concept of Net Neutrality, Burger King has created a short video which delivers a metaphoric explanation of the idea.

Here are the notes from the YouTube Page:

BURGER KING – Published on Jan 24, 2018

The repeal of Net Neutrality is a hot topic in America, but it can be very difficult to understand. That’s why the BURGER KING® brand created WHOPPER® Neutrality, a social experiment that explains the effects of the repeal of Net Neutrality by putting it in terms anyone can understand: A WHOPPER® sandwich.

This effort aims to help people understand how the repeal of Net Neutrality will impact their lives.

The BURGER KING® brand believes the Internet should be like the WHOPPER® sandwich: the same for everyone.

Help keep Net Neutrality safe by signing the petition at Change.org/SavetheNet

Vide-Ohs: Scotch – Not Straight Up

Over the weekend we dined with some friends at a popular local restaurant. One of the people in our party ordered a glass of scotch, neat.

When the drink arrived and was placed on the table, it appeared to be tipping over and all of the diners quickly reached for the glass to prevent a spill. I guess the joke was on us because the glass was designed to wobble in place when set on a flat surface. Upon inspection, we could see a bubble on the bottom-center of the glass.

It was quite interesting. Here is a brief video:

When the wait staff returned, we remarked about the glass and they said that they don’t have spills although it does cause some interesting experiences.
