Why is Sacramento the capital that first comes to mind for most people? I always miss it when I take that quiz.
+11
Level 67
Nov 28, 2016
My guess would be sheer population numbers. People are most likely to know the capital of their home state, even if they don't know any other state capitals. California has the most people, hence Sacramento is the capital that the largest group of people is guaranteed to know.
+10
Level 86

I think Sacramento is one of the most famous state capitals, especially for the non-americans. I would have thought Boston and Atlanta would be guessed the most though.
+14
Level 60
Nov 30, 2016
I had no idea Sacramento even was a state capital. I was guessing New York, Boston, Atlanta etc.

Which strikes me that I also don't know if those are capitals, just the biggest city I associate with that state.

Level 67
Jun 13, 2019
I think most non-americans have never heard of sacramento.. (and just tried big names without knowing if they were capitals or not NY, LA, san francisco, chicago, boston, miami, washington I think those are the most known ones)

Level 71
Oct 23, 2019
Yeah I thought Boston, Atlanta, or Phoenix at first because they are both the capitals and largest cities in their state, which is not super common.

People of a certain age remember the song "Sacramento" by Middle of the Road. Brought the name to the attention of non-Americans (or non-Californians even). If you went to California, why would you be singing about Sacramento? Must be a reason. So we found out.

I began with Boston and went through several before trying Sacramento. Also surprised by that answer.

Level 74
Dec 10, 2020
You're right about non Americans. One of the first things we learn about state capitals is that they tend not to be the biggest or most famous cities in their states. Next, I kind of recall hearing about Sacramento, Albany, Austin, Springfield and Tallahassee.
+1
Level 66
Aug 18, 2022
I can understand Sacramento due to the CA population.

I'm surprised to not see Denver mentioned though. I thought that would be the answer due to the airport, size, central position, sports teams, lack of competing Colorado cities, etc.

Could also imagine Atlanta/Boston/Phoenix. Though I personally didn't grow up categorizing Boston/Phoenix as capital cities- just as well-known.

Could it be because California has the largest number of Jetpunk users, at least in terms of people who have taken the U.S. state capitals quiz? Even if you are terrible at geography should at least know the capital of the state you live in. For example, you can't live in New York state and think the capital is New York city.

Mar 24, 2020
For many people, Romeo and Juliet is the first (and often only) Shakespeare play they've read. I read it first in middle school English class. I didn't read Hamlet until AP English my senior year in high school. R+J has also been made into much more popular movies much more recently than Hamlet, so that surely factors into it.

I'm sure about anyone knows California when it comes to U.S. states - geography geek or not. And if you look at a map it's one of the three states on the Eastcoast - the far left if you will. Considering that, I'm sure more people know Sacramento than Olympia or Salem as a state capital.

Paprika is actually just the Hungarian word for pepper, so in that sense they are the same. But since this is an English quiz it definitely shouldn't be accepted as an answer.

I wrote "Romeo and" but it didn't accept it so I thought it wasn't the right answer! That's over half the answer, surely it's obvious what I was going to write and it's enough to be accepted??

Similar to "Bosnia" being enough for "Bosnia and Herzegovina" to be accepted.

If it was obvious what you were going to write, then why didn't you do it? Obviously wasn't that obvious after all.
+1
Level 93
Mar 21, 2023
Because Jetpunk requires more than just the first word for quizzes with very few non-geographic exceptions...? Having 'Bosnia' or 'Saint Kitts' be accepted answers is very different than having 'Romeo' or 'Julius' be accepted for Shakespeare plays. That would be like allowing 'Lawrence' or 'Schindler' be accepted on the Best Pictures quiz.

That still might be one of the least deserved Nobel Peace Prizes ever awarded. He'd been in office less than a month by the time the submission process was closed, and it wasn't even because of Guantanamo Bay, it was for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
