South Dakota isn't that populous, so having 1/12 of the questions on this quiz is a bit disproportionate.

Those are amazing cities if you get a chance to visit either. The casting of David from the original alone, just standing in town...

Compass Guides was my everything as a wayward 20-something.

Shoutout to Bex n JJ who had them in their bathroom library

I bet more non-Americans than Americans get the highest points.

We tend to live in our own little bubbles.

Aww... Only 41% knew Peyton's audible. Even if you don't watch football it only seems right that Peyton and "Omaha" were meant to be together...

The questions about south dakota are some bs, who cares about some irrelevant state
Level 73
May 10, 2018
There are no irrelevant states or their contributions to society, but sometimes I do wonder about people or at least their opinions.

Out of respect for people in Detroit and Michigan, can you remove Bankruptcy from the Detroit clue?
Level 73
May 10, 2018
It's just one of those uncomfortable facts of history. I venture to say that there are things about every city or town that the residents wish had not happened, but ignoring something doesn't make it go away and it is part of their history.

Yes, I agree. Maybe Detroit's place as the final stop on a route of the Underground Railroad would have been less snarky.

After working for Ameritech for years, I developed an affection for Detroiters. They've had hard times and good, like much of the world, and keeps strong.

I loved the calls from the elders. Especially those who referred to their phones as 'him'.. as "I just bought him a little case". 😍

Great to see regional cities and not filled with sprawling cookie cutter suburbs that encompass bedroom commuters and absolutely nothing else.
