I know my missus had absolutely no interest in history. for a long time she thought the falklands war was the second world war and wasnt even aware about the first world war ( the 1918 one rather then the 39-45 one she thought was the first war).
she told me history was dead and it didnt interest her.
Heck she thought that russia and the usa went to war in vietnam and in cuba.
dam did that take a lot of relearning for her
which wasn't easy bearing in mind i had convinced her the haggis was a Scottish animal that roamed the scrublands of Scotland
Her geography is just as bad thinking Israel was near Germany for years.
but on the other hand she completely baffles me with mathmatics and chemistry stuff
