#113, I guess if you're a first grader or you grew up in the wild and was just brought back to civilisation, there is no shame not knowing. Considering however that you can use the Internet, I'd say that you're in neither case. Knowing that Paris is the capital of France is kinda basic general knowledge as it is one of the most famous capitals in the world, both for culture and tourism. So I would start learning a little bit more about world geography if I were you.

113, there's this thing I like to call google. No one hates on you for not knowing a VERY well known fact and you learned on your own. :)

I was thinking Paris too, but I wasn't sure. I just assumed it was a tourist attraction. Sure, we all know it exists, but nobody brags about being "the capital city of France".

I was debating whether I should blatantly point out my sarcasm or if I should leave it open to interpretation. I don't know which one would have gotten more thumb downs.

Please tell me you're joking. French Canadiens (yes that is the correct spelling) inhabit several provinces besides Québec. To say that "Québec" is a plausible answer to "what is the capital of French Canada?", would be the same as saying that "Oregon" is the answer to "what is the capital of English Pacific Northwest?". Your comment literally hurts my brain.

20 - Actually, in English, 'French Canadians' is the appropriate way to spell it, although in the context of the original comment, it should have been 'French Canada'. En français, on dit 'canadien français' ou 'canadienne française'. Unless you're talking about French-speaking hockey players who play for Montreal, 'French Canadiens' is completely incorrect. Technically Quebec is the only officially 'French' province of Canada, though there are many significant communities of Francophones in N

The official languages of Canada are English and French. Quebec may be the province the most densely populated with French-speakers, but they are everywhere and to imply that there could ever possibly be a capital of "French Canada" is what #20 was trying to point out as absolutely moronic.

Little fact ? The Capital City of a country ? So why does everyone has to know about he US capital, but no one gives a damn about Europe ? I don't think you can say little fact....

Honestly, that shit sounds fun. I love trivia games and can find no one to play with me. I think you should have enjoyed it. YDI.

Seriously op my family never does anything together. You should be happy just playing the game and enjoying your family.

Um... Ontario or Ottowa for Canada Mexico City for Mexico ... Can I name every capital of every state? That's a negative ghost rider. But I can tell you when it's spring, summer, fall, and winter. (:

Wow people, you guys need to stop making stereotypes about other countries. Every country has dumb people and smart people, some people know geography some don't. Some people have good comments some people have bad ones. 0-£

55- as a fellow Montrealer, it's funny how you can comment on the ignorance of Americans, when our own province is full of illiterate morons. "Lets separate from Canada! Fuck the English language! We'll live in isolation by only speaking french and we'll be ok! Lets not pay for school! Protest every week just because we don't want to go to class! Lets elect that fucking evil cow as PM!" Seriously there are ignorant people everywhere. Considering that over half of our population is cons

#38: from your comment it seems that you are very much emotionally attached to your great country and its a good sign that reflects the patriot within you.. however it doesn't means that you'll consider other countries as weak and poor...almost every piece of land in this world has got some unique resource and you should be wise enough to know that.

76 - How little you understand Québécois culture. Have you heard of something called The Quiet Revolution? The FLQ crisis? Where are you from, some Anglophone Waste-Island town, brought up with the belief that Francophones are somehow lacking because they don't want to assimilate into English Canada? You are an English minority in a French majority province, who are a linguistic and cultural minority within an English country. I suppose you think you shouldn't have to speak French, because after

28, you just managed to piss me off. I'm sick of people stereotyping Americans as being stupid and ignorant to everywhere else in the world. The fact you singled out a southern state makes me more agitated. Though I was not born in Texas, I do live here now. I can tell you compared to California's education system, Texas exceeds ten fold. No offence to anyone from California. That's just been my experience between the two states. Stop stereotyping every single American, especially the southern p

^ I immediately stopped reading when you mentioned Lady Gaga's affair with Chewbacca. What the hell are you talking about?

122: We don't have schools trying to teach creationism or NOT teach evolution... or people petitioning for secession. Also, as an American, I don't think the original commenter is wrong. We are isolated and generally uninterested in many parts of the world.

I am applauding over here in Nova Scotia... I read every word you wrote, and YOU are a very informed individual, and I would be proud to call you my friend. Way to speak your mind and not sound like a moron (unlike the person to whom you were replying). It's so nice when people understand what's going on.

116- I stopped reading halfway through because you're an idiot. You think that just because you live in Quebec, you should be spoon-fed? Shut up. Our university tuition is fucking PEANUTS compared to the US. PEANUTS. You're complaining because your tuition is 5000$ give me a break. You want to go to school? Pay the damn price. And as far as Canada and Quebec go, I think Canada has been pretty fucking generous and patient with this shitty province. And you think the PQ is liberal? Ya it's really

Oh and that comment about the Natives? Go on the Quebec Français Facebook page. They state that if the Natives want respect they need to learn FRENCH. They say they can learn French or get out.

That's probably because it doesn't matter to us what the Capitol of Bumsquat is, we don't care. It has absolutely zero effect on our daily lives. Now, if you were to ask us which was the most important flavor in a half-gallon of Neapolitan Ice Cream, everyone would say "Chocolate".

128: I think the first part was meant for the person above me lol, although, some people in Texas were wanting to secede from the Union after the results of the election in November. I do agree with you on the fact that, yes, some of us (probably a majority) are not interested in events or places around the world. What set me off is the fact that everyone in the U.S. was just stereotyped as ignorant.

Agreed..... I'm freaking from Montreal Quebec in Canada... I don't own an igloo and have Internet

Reply

143: It's peanuts compared to the US. It's incredibly expensive compared to Sweden. And I well know how all North American governments treat Natives, I'm a member of the Idle No More movement, and the Canadian government is NOT any better. Yes, the Quebec government says Natives need to speak French in order to work in Quebec - that's just a flat out truth! EVERYBODY has to speak French to work in Quebec. My Dad's from fucking Ohio and he learned French so he could work here. If you've lived

Just throwing this out there, I live in Texas and I can name every Canadian province, along with it's capital.. Most people at my high school can. We take geography class. We had to learn so much and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't know why people think we Americans, or at least Texans, are so ignorant when it comes to geography.

I know I'm late, but thanks #28! I never new my state had a bad education system... I guess all my good grades will be lost when I try to get into a good college because I was raised in Texas! damn sure thought that most of the people here were smart. I think I speak for most Texas people when I say this, "You're an idiot!" just because we don't have as high as scores, doesn't mean a thing. So thanks, algebra is so easy to pass when you're dumb! Makes sense now. Sorry for a rant, but i

and I haven't learned geography yet, but I'll be damn sure too pass with a higher credit since I'm taking AP human geography next year, and make sure I will be the first to pass the first part, because that's the hardest. I love to learn, about other countries and my own, so it should be a lot easier with this comment helping me keep a motivation now. sorry again. I'm gonna be a freshman, and we move so much that I can't keep up with other learning systems so I have yet to really learn geography
