I live about 5 minutes from Cary and did not realize that it might make the list. I knew it was somewhere on the top 200 but that it would fit this criteria did not cross my mind

Great "quiz", "Cringe" "Dragon"! However, I have one "problem" which is that "you" removed "Illinois". Why would "you" do this, "Cringe" "Dragon"? "Curse" you!
