    Apparently 1 in 14 adults couldn't answer the following maths question for 8 year olds:
    What is one eighth of 32?
    a) 6 b) 4 c) 2 d) 8 e) None of these f) Don't know

    Oh dear :(

    I love the way FH handled this subject so sensitively...

    But yeah, I would have to shoot anyone who got it wrong.

    1 in 14 sounds like an exaggeration to me, unless everyone where I live are the "one"'s and the other thirteen idiots are scattered around the rest of the country :p

    Well if they did the survey in the north they are bound to get more people getting the answer wrong...

    If it really is 1 in 14 in the UK, I wonder what that number would be in america? However many idiots we have, they'll have the same number a thousand-fold.

    Nah, even rednecks in america can at least count, they have to be able to, what with their 30-40 odd inbred children and all that. :)

    Maths i can understand but there is no fucking excuse for the amount of people that can't read or write..

    why is basic math different from basic reading and writing?

    He's probably right, such a shame that all the southerners would have ignored the guy asking the questions because they were too busy being busy :p

    If you set that as a requirement for being able to receive benefits then you'll see the figure rise dramatically.

    whats with the dodgy pre judged ideas about southerners being better than northerners

    It is you lot who drink warm beer and can't fight.

    It's grim up north, but i'd would rather be up here than darn sarf.

    The people are more friendly for a kick off, i can go into a shop up north that i have never been into before and actually start a conversation with the person behind the counter without them ringing the police as they think i am an escapee from a mental hospital or a suicide bomber, the people darn sarf are imho too busy and grumpy to care about anyone at all apart from them selves. especially those fom Oxford :)

    I think thats exactly what brooky means tbh, have to say I agree with him, people are generally much more friendly up north.

    Raven Brrrrr!

    having lived near laaaandon* for five years i would quite happily see the south of England sawn off and glued onto france, they can join their equally rude, false friends there.

    *Everyone from daaan souf is from near London see, thats why they talk like *****

    I agree with some of the sentiments expressed here about northerners. They are more friendly, helpful and talkative than southerners.

    However it's much warmer drier (except for today :p ) and richer down here, so Ill stop I reckon, for the time being.

    Do you think anyone would notice my accent up norff guys ?
  27. Calaen

    Calaen I am a massive cock who isn't firing atm!

    Richer as in everything is more expensive :p
  28. Raven

    Raven Brrrrr!

    we are £4000 a year better off since moving back to the midlands, still pretty much the same distance from London too. Wages arent that different, i am on £2000 a year more up here than i was down there doing pretty much the same job.
    housing prices are just retarded down there too. We rented a 1 bed house down there for £650 a month, the landlord said he was selling and gave us first refusal, £150,000. fuck that. now live in a lovely little village with a 2 bed 300 year old cottage and paying £425 a month, we can even afford to buy our own place when one becomes available in the village. decent real ale pub next door too!

    No mate, you know thats not true. Some things are a bit cheaper up there, but your avarage visit to Tescos or whatever is exactly the same.

    Yet the wages are quite a bit higher here.
