Via the incomparable Mary Robinette Kowal’s blog, I found the “Which Major US City Are You?” quiz. As I’ve noted elsewhere, I don’t really care for these quiz thingies too much — due to my over-analyzation of each possible question and answer — but this one had matched Mary with Portland, which is rather remarkable given her own history. So I gave it a shot.
Your Score: DENVER!
You scored 17% Style, 12% Climate, and 37% Culture!
You are Denver, Colorado. Denver is the largest city in Colorado, the state capital, and the seat of Denver County. It lies at the foot of the Rocky Mountains at the junction of the South Platte River and Cherry Creek. Today, Denver is an important communications, transportation, manufacturing, and agribusiness hub. Telecommunications and biomedical technology are two of the largest industries; construction, real estate, and retail trade are among the fastest-growing industries. The city is also home to many environmental organizations, including federal government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Hm, probably not very interesting to you since you’re a little low on the ‘culture’ scale. You don’t like heat much, and prefer cool weather and a landscape filled with majestic mountains. You may not be one for city life, and prefer a slower pace. You are sporty and adventurous, but not one to partake in typical ‘higher class’ activities, like the opera, and that’s just fine. Not all culture is bad though, and you might even find that you enjoy a good play now and then if you give it a chance 🙂

I daresay the test ain’t bad, ladies and gentlemen. It ain’t bad at all.
