lol you don't have to take it that seriously, of course being from that state and growing up there would allow them to have a greater innate knowledge of the area than someone who wasn't from there.

But it's called the Research Triangle because of UNC, NC State, and Duke, which are located in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Durham, respectively. Making "Research Triangle" the clue is misleading.

It's pretty sad how many people missed Colorado Springs. It has the state's name directly in its own name. It is home to the one and only United States Air Force Academy.

It is also the second biggest metro area in Colorado behind Denver and the second biggest city proper in Colorado behind Aurora, among the 50 biggest cities in the USA. But mostly because it has the Air Force Academy it's a travesty so many people didn't get it. As well as it being home to the US Olympic Training Center as well. So many reasons to know of this city...

Aurora is not the biggest city in Colorado, it's the third. Both Denver and Colorado Springs are bigger.
