What knowledge is important or valid and why?

Guffrus
Its generally accepted that knowing things like country names and or flags, highest mountains, longest rivers, the names of the oceans etc are important and knowing this about celebrities and fashion are trivial and unimportant distractions for the feeble minded.

Im not so sure that that is true.

In fact i think i can make a pretty good argument against this accepted wisdom.

What do you think?

Is this idea similar to the criticisms about the IQ test, with cultural bias etc?

What do you really get out of knowing these things?

Are they really as important as we seem to think they are?
