ATL is my least favorite airport. Last time I had a layover, they announced a delay because "the door fell off the plane." I don't want them to lie but they could have done a better job not freaking out passengers.

2020 is a huge outlier for obvious reasons. I'm not going to say that Beijing has passed Atlanta unless it does so in 2022.

Like what? I guess I can understand why you might say that for the name of the river and perhaps a couple other proper names, but I don't feel there are many unusual words on this quiz.

Oh, didn't you know? They don't know the word "aquarium", wot, Brits call it a "Fisharbour" or "Waterlybink".

I've lived in the Atlanta metro area for nearly 20 years and I've heard it many a time. Plus, if you look at the city from a high place the reason for the nickname is obvious.

The Buckhead one feels a bit misleading. The movement to secede is hardly active. I would never have thought of Buckhead as very wealthy by means of Druid Hills or Chastain, but I guess it is.

Seems rather active to me, or at least it's been in the local news a fair amount lately.

sometimes when I take a quiz I'll type in an answer just to see if it is correct without reading any of the clues. Definitely got that second to last one in the blind. The pride of Lancaster, OH
