    This might be because girls often spend hours chatting to each other about their social circles, fashion, cooking, favourite celebrities, etc. as opposed to guys who have a tendency to talk to each other about other things such as sports, cars, technology, and politics.

    Guys and girls are bound to have a disparity in general knowledge about certain topics because of the way they socialise.

    To kick someone's arse usually means to win impressively or very effectively, Russia did neither.
    It doesn't just mean they won.

    Would it make you feel better if I changed my original post?

    (a generalisation of course)

    After talking to many people over the last few months, it has become very apparent that girls have almost zero general knowledge. They can tell you what is going on in their course or the X factor, but ask them where Germany is or what WW2 was about and they have no idea. I was reminded of this when a girl on TSR who was 20 had no idea what 9/11 was all about, even though it will be one of the most important historical events during her life.
    What excuse do you have for this ignorance when you live in an age of instant communication and access to huge amounts of data all for free? :confused:

    Yet for some reason guys tend to be better with general knowledge, from geography, politics, and history, for some reason we know far more, yet if you ask a person why they know this they can not explain why. I put it down to simply being more inquisitive.

    Do other people find this to be the same with girls they meet, or guys?
    Do you girls with general knowledge find these girls do not help with fighting stereotypes such as the stupid blonde etc?
    Suck it up dumbo, its obvious you need to go out more and stop basing your opinion about girls in general from tsr. We are smarter than you think you sexist ****!

    Well seeing that I have met girls from almost everywhere in the UK, ranging from college drop outs to girls at Cambridge, and from a whole variety of ages, I would confidently say that my sample is reasonable and fair.



    Herp derp.

    Please read what the first line of my post says. Now go read the last two.......:rolleyes:




    Well you may know what it was about but clearly your ability to read is lacking as you missed the bottom 2 lines..........
    Fair point, but I will admit that i didn't read that far I feel stupid, don't judge :P

    Well the girl from TSR was really the icing on the cake as only a day or two before that some girls I knew did not know where Austria, Alaska, Vietnam, Greece or pretty much any country was, and a few weeks prior some girl and her friend has no idea about pretty much anything, I quote " I'm not good at reading proper clocks"......That's right, proper clocks.

    Fair enough. How are you measuring intelligence? And what aspects of intelligence are you measuring?

    I think the thing is, stupid guys think they're clever. Stupid girls in general know they're stupid. Thus making the girls cleverer? Who knows?!

    Anyway, who cares? I know a girl who is a bit of a moron when it comes to general knowledge, but is a straight A student and apply for medicine. When you go in for an op you aren't going to ask your doctor to give you a rough analysis of 20th century history are you?

    Well to be honest intelligence is hard to measure, but when girls are doing subjects such as medicine and sciences, as well as going to top 10 uni's, it is hard to not call them intelligent.
    However when they say such retarded things such as ' What is a Vietnam?", I wonder if they are intelligent, or they just have a good short term memory for their chosen subject.

    Omfg, he is totally exaggerating here! Our conversation went along the lines of:
    Jimbo1234: Are you saying that 9/11 was provoked?
    Me: Maybe?
    Jimbo1234? Whaaat, have you been living under a rock your whole life? 9/11 was totally unprovoked and random.
    Me: No, but it wasn't random, they planned it and must have chosen America for some reason or other.

    Grrrr :mad:

    This is ridiculous. I make you sick? **** off! I hate reality tv shows! No one knows all the ins and outs of it, only the Taliban do. They obviously had something against America to do it, not that they deserved it in any way!

    EDIT: If the OP says that girls lack general knowledge from looking at tsr, then I can say that guys are assuming *******s who think they know everything! Oh wait, I won't say that because I'm not assuming.

    hmm... such "intelligence" but not the smarts to realise that interests in life differ, as well as personalities.

    Celebrity culture is shallow, but so what? people who are attracted think the same way, but it's just how life is, people are different.

    I must ask though, where do you find these girls who only care about X-Factor? Is it in a chav area? Even if it's in uni, then ask them about their subject. they surely should be knowledgeable about that.

    I seriously wonder where all of you boys live though. A lot of you seem to only have had contact with girls who could be described as brain dead sluts with no self-respect, confidence or intelligence. It seems a bit odd given that I've met plenty of girls who are exactly the opposite.
    Obviously not asking for specific, but where roughly do you live? (NE, SW etc) I know it says Suffolk, but are you living in the south most of the time?
    I have a suspicion it may be something to do with that...

    Well you are asking the wrong questions. You should be asking "where did iron boards come from?" and "describe the thermodynamic processes involved in sandwich production", these are more suited to the brains of a woman.

    Anyone who negs me for this has serious issues with sarcasm detection
    Your an absolute idiot. Would you say this about race? Perhaps then I should only ask indians about curry making and bollywood dancing.

    I just can comprehend how people like you still exist. Idiot.
