How We Memorized Every 1M City - Part 2

We hope that this blog will be helpful to people who are working on or interested in memorizing large quantities of abstract information.

DISCLAIMERthis blog is based on 2022 citypopulation.de populations. Some cities may differ from the current quiz (2021 populations).

Parentheses denote groups of cities that can be memorized together.

"prox:" denotes that the reasoning behind the grouping is because of the proximity between the 2 or more cities.

"w/" means that you can remember that city with another city from another country.

A dash denotes that there is a specified order of the cities grouped inside the parentheses. (OPTIONAL)

Brackets are used to remember a city name by something that isn't geography related. (Apparently food in ChineseChen's case.)

"a.k.a." shows that there is another type-in that can be used for that city that is beneficial.

We hope that this blog will help people in memorizing all 1M cities. If you realized that we skipped some countries, don't worry! One more part will be coming soon.

If you would like to practice the quiz with 2022 populations, here is the HTML file for a quiz. To use, download the file from Drive. Find the file in your file navigator and click on the dropdown next to "Open" and open the file in a browser.

To change type-ins, open the file in a text editor such as Notepad. There should be a large block of text at the top which contains the type-ins. Be sure to note that regex does not work on this quiz, so you must type the city exactly the same as the type-in to get it correct.

the main reason behind it is because when you try to type "Porto Alegre", Porto will always be accepted first because of the way type-ins work on JetPunk. When you type something into JetPunk, it will automatically accept a type-in when you type it in, even if it was unintentional.
