Texas Tech Students Completely Incapable Of Answering Basic History And Current Event Questions

Texas Tech is an accredited four-year institution where its students can't even answer a simple current event question. That's why they've been sentenced to four years in God-awful Lubbock.

    From the looks of this, only a pulse is required to gain admission to Texas Tech. I have a brother in fifth grade that could answer all of these questions. Fucking ridiculous

      Yeah I agree, pretty ridiculous. Although, I did get my degree from Texas Tech in May in economics and finance and now I’m a stock broker doing exactly what I studied in college. I guarantee you that if you went to majority of universities out there that you would get the same outcome, and frankly, like most of the media today, I’m sure they chose a fraction of their input to sway the point they are trying to get across.

        This is ridiculous. Where is my interview?! Apparently if you get it right it was too boring to put into the video.

        while Texas Tech is far from being a sophisticated academic powerhouse (i believe it is a third tier school), i suspect that the responses to these questions would be the same on most college campuses in the U.S.

      Only a pulse is required at pretty much every university outside of the top 50. “Going to college” is not an accomplishment. More often than not it’s just idiots racking up a shitload of debt to either drop out or study something worthless like psychology or communications or marketing.

        Yes, because marketing, what introduces and promotes products to the market for literally EVERY business, is worthless. You sir are a retard.

          Let’s not compare Marketing to real degrees like Computer Science and Physics. I will likely get lapped hard for this one, but sorry that I’m not sorry.

            All you morons who think marketing is not a real degree and that anyone off the street can do it,is woefully ignorant and today’s job market. Any credible university would require you to understand data analytics, statistics, brand management, and finance to get into the door of any reputable company. And please let me confess I am a business finance major, NOT a marketing major. And if you want to start your own business, you have a lot of difficulty selling your business plan to investors without having a sophisticated marketing plan to go with it.

    This goes beyond lack of historical knowledge. These people are absolutely fucking retarded. My jaw dropped when no one knew who we gained our independence from or when… Seriously? Fuck. I’m mad.

    Part of me wants to think that they asked tons of people these questions and were only able to single out a few idiots, but it is texas tech so I’m not so sure.

      They asked a bunch of people. My friends got asked and got them all right. They just took the people who got them right out the video.

        That’s why I hate videos like this. It doesn’t matter if 99% of the people they ask are well informed–the people that make this kind of shit already have an agenda and they’re going to get the result they want one way or another. So they splice together the handful of retarded answers they got and then act like it’s some sort of damning social commentary.

          It doesn’t matter what they splice together, every person who lives in the U.S. should be able to answer these questions. It’s pretty sad people that take a citizenship test to live in this country know more about its history and government than any one of these kids… Bottom line, we are fucked!

          Fuck you, Hank Moody! You’re the moron…how’s this from a Harvard grad? You probably think they’re really smart, don’t you?
          Last week, ten students interviewed on Harvard’s campus didn’t know who Christopher Columbus was.
          In that light, the statement below may not be so surprising.

          Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama recently informed attendees of a naturalization ceremony that our Founding Fathers weren’t born in America. (Say what?)

          The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. During her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence, she said:

          “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here, where I’m standing, are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American… “they became American”.

          Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America? Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and James Madison were born in Virginia. John Adams was born in Massachusetts. Only 8 of the 56 were not born in America.

          Surely she knew this? But, then again, maybe not. After all, she is a Harvard graduate, isn’t she?

          Either way, I’d feel better if someone at the White House level knew about fact checking the history books … oh, wait, are those even allowed in schools and public institutions these days?

            The First Lady didn’t say the Founding Fathers were not born in America. She said, “none of them were born American”. They were born in the 13 colonies which would later form the United States of America.
            “What Michelle Obama was communicating on that occasion was that the Founding Fathers were not born into a fully formed and established America with its own history, customs, culture, and values, as modern American children are; they were born into a very different world as British subjects in a colonial empire, and they chose to seek new opportunities and lives for themselves by transforming their world into something distinctive (through the establishment of a new nation) — just as modern immigrants born outside America choose to transform their worlds by opting to leave their homelands for the United States and seek new lives through becoming Americans.”

            The First Lady did not say “not born in America”, she said “Not born American”. You might advance your argument (although you have none), if you learned to read more accurately. It’s not hard, you know. It’s a basic requirement.

    They asked several of my friends these questions, all of whom answered every single one of them correctly. They edited everyone out except for these few idiots so that it would look like Jimmy Kimmel.
