## Are my friends just that stupid?

1. So Im driving with my buddy today and he looks over and says &quot;how many feet are in a yard?&quot;

Obv I say... you cant be fucking serious. I made him guess and he said 2.

I thought this was common knowledge.

About 2 hrs later I see the 17 year old and I ask her... to my amazement, her answer was 12. I immed made her feel like a dumbass. 12 is the most absurd answer for the measurement of a yard if the person has ever watched a football game.

We are having people over tonight and I have to ask more people this question now. I still cant believe ive found 2 people that didnt know the answer.
2. How many feet are in a meter?
3. lol @ 12

i can't imagine someone not knowing the answer to this

4. hey she's 17 maybe she hasnt had any science labs yet ?

6. Kids these days. Sigh.
7. lol at 12 feet. You got yourself a smart 17 yr old.
8. fiveteen?

9. 2 is worse than 12 imo. the girl was prolly thinking inches in a foot and answered too quickly. 2 is just random and wrong
11. 11.5, LDO
12. In New York, we have standardized tests that every student has to take so teachers work the entire year trying to get kids to learn certain things. i guess you couldnt pass 3rd grade in NY without knowing that.
13. It's incredible how little most people know. Jay walking ftw
14. depends how many people are standing in my yard. if its just one person, then he would be right, 2 feet.

You think New York is the only state that does this?
16. been a while since i been in school now, but how can you not know its 4? if you watch a football game, they clearly take two big steps per yard line and everyone knows a big step=2 ft.

17. My 11-yr old just walked thru. I asked him. He said, &quot;3, but I was gonna ask you the other day how many yards there are in a mile.&quot;
18. also ask them how many meters in a Km?
20. so how many feet are in a yard?
21. NJ Public Education FTW
22. Girls dont have to be smart as long as they suck dick well. Especially if you aint marrying them.

It's the only question they ask, you can get partial credit for showing the work though.
25. My wager:

\$TEXAS
26. Does it mean you have stupid friends or are you stupid for having stupid friends???

yeah, not being able to figure out the metric system is even worse. I don't know why you still are using those crazy measurements.

If you ever switched to metric, do you think football would be played on a 100 meter field?
28. Most likely. And I didn't even read the OP. WOOT!
