Missed some obvious ones, including Gibraltar and Edmonton. At least I got Lagos, the least guessed. But still ashamed of my score of 12. I keep learning little by little through these quizzes.

"Mysterious low life expectancy" Who'd have thought a diet of fried bars bars and heroin would do such a thing?

I didn't get the city with any of the above clues but heroin tipped me off..

Even taking into consideration the poor diet and drug problems, the life expectancy in Glasgow is lower than expected. Hence the "mysterious" part of the term.

Don't get this and quite angry at these insinuations - what drug problem - hundreds of places with problems that are so much bigger than anything Glasgow has or ever had - and for the low life expectancy - again a load of nonsense !!!

Was I the only one who thought "York" for Grand Duke?... (or it that The Grand "Old" Duke?)

WTF are "Wegians"??? I think you'll find it's "Weegies". And for the record, I've never seen a deep fried Mars Bars in my life, and Trainspotting (heroin) was Edinburgh, not Glasgow, so get your clichés right.

Glaswegians - correct, but they really are called 'Weegies'.

Yes, but drug problems - come on !! Get real and low life - again, think you are reading from history books of hundreds of years ago - disgraceful that you have allowed this !!!

Maybe I'm just thinking like an American, but if NFL is on your mind, Oilers screams Houston, and Steel City is undeniably a name for Pittsburgh. The other clues certainly suggest that those aren't the responses, but the first two definitely are applicable to multiple cities.

It's not that hard; all three clues have to be true. Steel City is definitely Pittsburgh in the USA context, but the others made it clear that it's in the UK.

You take all the clues together, not each one in isolation. (isn't that blindingly obvious?)

Glasgow's life expectancy being low is certainly not mysterious!
