Muni should be an alternate (and actually more accurate) SF rail system. BART goes all over the Bay Area.

See your point, but when I think of MUNI, I think more of the bus line. BART is much more well known. At least perhaps outside the immediate Bay Area. I put BART right away & I live in Northern California.

I live on the Peninsula, so I put Caltrain, but then thought Muni. BART was my last guess because I associate it so much more with the East Bay than the City. I think some alternate answers should be accepted.

I live on the East Coast and my first thought was MUNI. Then I was confused and tried streetcar and trolley, thinking the quizmaster was trolling. Only then did I think BART.

I tried street car, cable car, trolley and muni metro, but then I've only ever been to the city once, and never lived there.

Yes, I live in Boston, but lived for 12 years in SF (and scored an easy 100%). I would consider Muni to be SF's transit system (akin to the MBTA in Boston, the MTA in NYC.etc), primarily municipal, while BART serves the whole Bay Area. My first guess was Muni. At the very least they should both be accpeted.

I lived in San Francisco for 8 years. Even I had trouble, and I used to work next door to the Ghrairdelli in the mall.

and it's not even the right chocolatier from SF. Recchiuti is much more famous, at least among people who care about food. It's like if you asked for a famous northern California wine maker and wanted "Gallo" as the answer. To San Franciscans, Ghirardelli is a square, not a chocolate maker. Their product sucks.

hm... I knew Mars was from Virginia. Herhey's is from Pennsylvania. Nestle and Toblerone are Swiss. Godiva is Belgian. ...at least I've heard of and seen Ghirardelli before they are pretty famous but I couldn't think of them. Never heard of "Recutie"... and I care about food. I usually have some every day.

The California gold rush began in 1848 and lasted through the mid 1850s. Why is 1849 the correct answer?

1849 was the most pivotal year of the CA gold rush. It's when the most miners immigrated to the area (est. 80,000-90,000 people that year).

The "San Francisco 48-through-mid-50s" doesn't exactly just roll off the tongue.

Gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill in 1848. The "Rush" didn't occur til '49.

I was sad to see no question about Emperor Norton. He really deserves a mention given his place in San Francisco history.
