Is there be an urban-extent version of this quiz coming? The problem with "city proper" quizzes is that you have no idea which cities some clown of a bureaucrat has drawn a red line through its middle and decreed that one side or the other isn't a proper part of the city. (Which seems to have happened here with Honolulu and Salt Lake City at least).

I don't think some bureaucratic clown decided to divide Salt Lake City in two. I think people decided to live in suburbs, which grew until they filled the valley surrounding the city, and the suburbs had no desire to be annexed by the city.

This could really use a bit more time. At least 2 minutes, maybe 3. Some of us can't remember capitals quite as fast as states.

I don't get you Americans! Why are so few state capitals the largest city in the state?

For the most part sites were chosen to move it towards the center of the state. Most large cities are on the ocean or on large rivers which also happen to be the borders of a lot of the states and not in the center of the state. Also a lot of times smaller cities were chosen on purpose to limit the extent of large cities and powerful interests.
