Comments are submitted straight away after a certain amount of time as a user.

Not sure if I'd want surveys as well, depends what sort of thing you mean.

There are many quizzes added daily in the "User Quizzes" section.

Pretty easy for a former resident of the state. Only really hesitated on one of them.

A little disturbed to see that apparently more people know about the Cuyahoga catching fire than know when women in the United States were allowed to vote . . .

I think that has more to do with more people guessing the river question right. Both statements sound outrageous enough that "they must be true". Unfortunately, only one of them is.

I live in California and I heard about it catching fire. It wasn't just a guess.

Anyone who thinks Ohio is mountainous has either never been there or never left there.

Eastern Ohio has the foothills of the Appalachians. There are some very steep, but somewhat short, hills.

Hills. That's the key word.

I think I'm right in saying that the Moondog Coronation Ball was shut down after only one song by the fire marshal due to overcrowding.

The booked bands and artists didn't play what many would recognize as rock and roll today, but rather a combination of blues, jazz, r&b, and jump blues. But radio DJ Alan Freed used the term "rock and roll" to promote the concert and many of the acts influenced subsequent artists who played more recognizable rock and roll music.
