I am surprised that the quiz was written by Bill
Boeing. It dated to say the least. The Boeing
headquarters are now in Chicago, Ill. (Question 19)
The SST was known as the Super Sonic Transport,
Question 5 and that was not a choice for the answer)
not the super speed transport referred to in the
quiz. My late father used to babysit the SST

DH (born in Seattle March 1961)and I (born Group Health October 1965) disagree about some of your answers. Together, we only scored 68%!
Just a few comments:
1. SST stands for Super Sonic Transport.
2. Boeing no longer is headquartered here, so there was no right answer there.
3. We didn't know the Mercer Girls question -- that was a good one!
I was born in Swedish Hospital on 11/28/1958, the questions are not valid because of some of the reasons stated in the above comments. I might live on Kauai, but my home will always be Seattle.
What the heck? I've lived here my WHOLE LIFE and I got 35%. Seriously, unless you take a 'ridiculous, ancient facts about Seattle' class these questions are impossible!
What are the answers? As far as I can tell, you are wrong on every one, based on my score. Holy smoke! SST, SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT. Boeing is not based in Seattle. What else did I get wrong here? Can't tell. WOrst quiz ever...the right answers MUST be displayed, or they are all suspect...doormat1

Seriously? Most of these questions sucked or had the wrong answer.Maries111
I only got 56% on this quiz, wha? I was born in the Group health building on 15th & Thomas in 1994,. I probably only got 56% since I'm young. Renton is the headquarters for boeing and Redmond is the headquarters for Microsoft
Yeah, and what about that "What does SST stand for?" Super Sonic Transport.
Born at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle in April of 1958.
