I wonder how many people would have answered the Hamilton question correctly in 2010. Very few would have said "Aaron Burr, sir!"

Actually, quite a few would have gotten it right. They just might have pronounced it "aaawwwon buwwww" while being upset that they just lost a $10,000 radio contest.

I might have already asked this question elsewhere at some point, but I'm still wondering why NOLA isn't accepted for New Orleans. It's a fairly common nickname/abbreviation and a lot of other cities are shortened on Jetpunk... That being said, I was surprised when the right answer popped with only St. Pete for the Russia/Florida one. :)
