    6 of 11 Miss USA contestants couldn't name the Vice-President of the USA; 4 of 7 didn't know what color waves of grain are in "America the Beautiful"

    For women battling each other to claim the coveted crown of Miss USA, you would think they'd care to know the basics of their country.But a hilarious quiz has revealed nearly half of the contestants quizzed on the nation's vice president could not name him.And most did not know the colour of the waves of grain mentioned in the song America the Beautiful - a mainstay of classrooms across the country.

    I'd rather forget who the President and Vice President are; maybe in November

    Other than the fact that every time he opens his mouth something incredibly stupid falls out, Biden is rather forgettable.

    This is not a surprise to me. For a longtime our education system has been a mess.

    I gave a quiz to a couple of females (approx. 20-21yo) the other day. I was amazed at the total stupidity, or lack of paying attention to the questions.The questions were intended to be "gimme's". What were the questions?
    1. What color was Napoleon's white horse?
    2. What two sides fought in the French and Indian War?
    3. Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?
    4. How long did the 100 Year War last?
    5. When was the War of 1812?

    females:,"Um...I'm no good a history, I don't know."

    To be fair...
    1. There are no such things as white horses. Just grey.
    2. The French and Indian War was primarily fought between the colonies of Great Britain and New France, Indians fought on both sides.
    3. Grant and his wife are both buried in the General Grant National Memorial, the popular name of which is Grant's Tomb.
    4. The Hundred Years War lasted 116 years.
    5. The War of 1812 started in 1812 and lasted until 1815.
