Do you know that thousands of quizzes happen on jetpunk everyday? This quiz is awful. It is awful because it is stupid and hard. This quiz is stupid. It is stupid because the answers are weird like St. Louis's sister city being Senegal. There is no way that anyone who takes this quiz will know that. This quiz is hard. This quiz is hard because you have very hard questions that no one would know like the sister city of St. Louis that has a city called St. Louis. That is a trash question. Also I have never heard of "The Glass Menagerie" and I do not know how that ten percent of the people get it because that question is dumb and weird like your quiz. In Conclusion, this quiz is stupid and hard and I don't like it. You should be ashamed of making this quiz so hard and stupid. I believe that you should take the hard ones out so that we can get more quizzes.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the quiz. I prefer challenging quizzes myself, even if I have to take them several times to get all the answers correct. I hope you at least learned a few new things about St. Louis.

I have visited St. Louis twice in my life. My experience provided me with 16 correct answers and a good challenge upon taking this quiz. It was fun. And I appreciated kicking myself for not remembering "concrete" after enjoying one years back :) Sorry a different quiz-taker was so rude about it.

Your comment is much appreciated. I removed the question about which country has a sister city named St. Louis, since it seemed to cause so much anger for the previous quiz-taker.

I am glad to learn you appreciated my input. I can see that the sister city question had been removed. I would not have known the answer, but I would have appreciated learning it (although I can see the answer in the dolt's comment). Stay strong. Don't cater to the lowest common denominator. You're a contribution to the site and on it for the right reasons. Do your best to ignore the petty and ignorant ones. Continue doing your best where if even it seems no one appreciates it, at least you yourself can be proud knowing you're doing the right thing :)

I loved this quiz! I go through St. Louis four times a year. I have a nephew at SLU. My little brother lived there for a few years. I was stumped on the concrete question and rolled my eyes when I read the answer. I learned things I didn't know as well. Much appreciated. Also, I loved the herb quiz. Eclectic.

I think River Des Peres is the southern border of the city

You are correct. River Des Peres does form the boundary between St Louis City and St. Louis County, but as it is less than ten miles long and is more of a sewage and drainage channel than a river, I opted to use the larger rivers which border the county. The Missouri doesn't actually border the city, either, but forms the northern boundary for the county. That is why I worded the clues as "St. Louis area" rather than city.

Would have gotten the king had you accepted "Louis 9"... but it would have just been a guess. I think I would have also gotten the plane if you had just asked "name of Charles Lindbergh's plane"... the way the hint was worded confused me. and I guessed every other nationality and ethnic group of the Balkans... I don't know how I forgot Bosnians. Ended up with 9. Apparently I don't know that much about St Louis.

You're right, I over-complicated the Lindbergh clue. Thanks for the suggestion.

Could you consider accepting some more spellings for Meramec? I live in STL but still couldn't figure out how to spell it. I tried Meremac, Meramac, Meremec, but couldn't get the right one. Great quiz, though!

All of those should have worked. Two of the type-ins were anything beginning with Merem and Meram, but I added a couple more.

To my own surprise, I got 11 (one of them was The Glass Menagerie) and could have reasonably guessed 3 more. This is a good quiz with relevant questions. Not too hard either, as many answers can be guessed with general and not St. Louis-specific knowledge.
