As proven by the mock test given to the 100 better-than-average educated collage tutors. I sincerely doubt that my neighbors know when Magna Carta was signed or when women over 30 were given the right to vote.

    Yes we do. It pays for the BBC and Channel 4 gets some of it too.

    Where are you from originally Scheherazade?
