My teacher put the question on our last quiz:

"How many colonies are in the original 13 colonies?"

You wouldn't believe how many people got it wrong.

Thats the kind of question where you think that the answer is too easy and theres no way it could possibly be that. Those ones always get me

One time I got a test and there was an entire page devoted to one question and the question was "What is the range of (insert random series of numbers here)" The range was like 8 or something but I just sat there for like 5 minuets thinking it over. I kept asking myself "It can't be that easy can it, why would they give me all this free space for something as easy as this."

C'mon what? Honestly, the Standard system of measurement is the most retarded thing I've ever encountered, but it is the only thing that most of us Americans know because that's what is taught in schools. Almost no (none at all?) conversions are a simple 1:2 ratio either. For example, each mile is like 1.60-something kilometers.

lmao I don't expect you to know the conversations off by heart I just don't see why people don't just search up "5k in miles" or "kilometre-mile conversation".
My main point is a 5k is 5k long

I can only guess. For example, a lot of treadmills only show distance walked in miles, not kilometers.

I'm not sure if you're bashing on the imperial system of measurement or...

Yes, I'm bashing the British Imperial, so few countries use it that it is idiotic to teach it in public schools. With the exception of the UK, any country I go to and ask for x amount of something, the clerk will look at me like I'm an idiot.

I remember we did a test about his in grade 7, the teacher asked us questions and marked it while we were out for lunch. Me being the history nerd I am, knew the question, yet when I told everyone it went to 116 years this one little **** felt it was necessary to get all up in my face and call me a dumbass. Naturally he was pretty quiet when the teacher told us the answers.

P.S. Black boxes are orange and Panama hats are from Mexico.

And ended by a 16yo girl. It took her three months to attain victory.

actually the french gave her away as an offering to end the war. the English didn't want her and even tried to give her back, but the french had none of it. she was then prosecuted as a witch, and burned! lil' bit o' history for you!

The hundred years war wasn't a single war, either... it was a series of smaller wars that, some time after the wars had ceased, they were simply referred to as the hundred years war.

The only reason I know about the hundred years war is because it started in 1337
