    Friday Time Killier: Iowa's Top Populated Cities/Towns

    There are a lot of quizzes on this site that will destroy any productivity that might have occurred this afternoon...but this quiz was interesting. Sadly, I only could think of 15 of the top 20 cities/towns in Iowa in terms of population:

    Can you name the the most populated cities in the State of Iowa? - sporcle

    EDIT: if you want to take the quiz without getting some of the answers ahead of time...quit reading this thread and click on the link above!

    That was fun. Got 16/20. I missed 14, 18-20, so at least I got the biggest ones, but I can't believe I missed one of those.

    Re: Friday Time Killier: Iowa's Top Populated Cities/Towns

    I got them all. Got 17 in the first 90 seconds and two more by the halfway point. Finally figured out Clinton with a minute left. I guarantee I would have missed Marion two years ago, but since I live there now I wasn't about to forget it. :)
