your clue for Downey needs to be improved. There was a former Apollo factory in Downey which is now a museum. Thanks for an interesting but tough quiz.

Tough quiz. Another where I'd love to see a split between the scores of Americans and non Americans, just to see how my 6 stacks up.

Hmm never thought I would see a quiz with my home town on here in Davenport Iowa. For those that don't know Davenport is third largest city in Iowa and sits right on Mississippi River, the only place where the Mississippi River goes east west and not north south. Common joke there is the Illinois side is the snot of Iowa because the area looks like a nose and the Illinois side is under the nose.
