    I got Fairbanks too. Huh?

    I'd like to see some test that spit out an answer after 100 questions rather than a generalized handful.

    Ithaca, NY - the most un-NY town in NY. I feel like I should have my passport with me when in Ithaca. Its pretty out there when the gas station clerk has a phd and hippies beg for money in the streets. Is it like Berkley CA?

    Wasn't Waterbury one of the wealthiest cities in the country around 1900? Brass capital of the world or something of the sort?

    apparently so.

    Waterbury (nicknamed the "Brass City") is a city in New Haven County, Connecticut, on the Naugatuck River, 33 miles (53 km) southwest of Hartford and 77 miles (124 km) northeast of New York City. As of 2010 Census Bureau estimates, the city had a total population of 110,366 and is the ninth largest city in New England, the fifth-largest city in Connecticut and the second largest city in New Haven County.[1]

    Throughout the first half of the 20th century Waterbury had large industrial interests and was the leading center in the United States for the manufacture of brassware (including castings and finishings), as reflected in the nickname the "Brass City" and the city's motto Quid Aere Perennius? ("What Is More Lasting Than Brass?"), which echoes the Latin of Horace's Ode 3.30. It was noted for the manufacture of watches and clocks.
