I admit that my perspective on what people should know is a bit skewed given my love of general knowledge, but I assume there is some stuff that everyone knnows. Apparently, no. I just asked about 6 or 8 PhD students when was Australia discovered by James Cook. No one knew. Somebody said 1788 (that's the First Fleet).
Everyone else said 1760s to 1770s. The answer is 1770. I'm curious. Do I know this because I like history or is it my QLD education? Or do we know it because of the Town 1770?
Also, a couple people didn't know the first Prime Minister. Good luck on the new citizenship test
