this is awesome!!
Dec 30th, 2008 at 04:50 GMT
challenging and fun...some pretty neat ones here.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 04:53 GMT
wow, this is hard
Dec 30th, 2008 at 04:54 GMT
This is one of them Quizzes that nobody will get them all right. 10/10 on the difficulty meter but quite fun
Dec 30th, 2008 at 04:58 GMT
Never would have thought this could possibly be that hard. Excellent quiz!
Dec 30th, 2008 at 05:08 GMT
Wow, only got 42. Definitely very fun and challenging.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 05:21 GMT
Wow, this was a great and creative idea! I got 44 on first try. Since the stats are down, I don't know- is that good?!?!
Dec 30th, 2008 at 05:35 GMT
Great quiz! In New York, it's spelled Thruway. Love the quiz although I missed a bunch of them I shouldn't have. Thanks!
Dec 30th, 2008 at 05:37 GMT
56. Lost one because I spelled it "thruway," and Quay must be Canada only. Still, kudos on a pleasantly out-of-left-field and interesting quiz.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 05:58 GMT
Well done. I got 45. There are some I have never, and probably will never hear of.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 06:32 GMT
Agreed that this is a challenging and interesting one. But "Bayoo"? Really? Wasn't he the Bear in The Jungle Book? ;)
Dec 30th, 2008 at 06:39 GMT
Awesome quiz! This is just the type of stuff I love about sporcle. Got 54 first try. I can't believe I actually put "skyway" and some other randoms.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 07:06 GMT
well this was awesome...52 right...didn't realize how many things there are...Mountain??? really???
Dec 30th, 2008 at 07:33 GMT
This was just awazing - not only fun but instructive- this is what Sporcle is all about! Thankyou!
Dec 30th, 2008 at 07:44 GMT
They don't have parade... My school is located on "Oaklands Pde". hmm
Dec 30th, 2008 at 07:46 GMT
They don't accept "circuit" either Hmm
Dec 30th, 2008 at 08:01 GMT
The bear in The Jungle Book was Baloo, I believe. Haven't watched in years, though. Also, I don't accept that all of these have been used more than once anywhere at any time.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 10:11 GMT
It makes no difference to this quiz but in the UK, the suffix is part of the official name of the street and everyone uses it when talking about the street. So, for example, `Victoria Road' (IIRC, the most common street name in the country) is definitely `Victoria Road' and not just `Victoria' because, likely as not, there'll be a `Victoria Avenue' close by. They used to build whole housing estates and call the streets in them `Angel Road', `Angel Street', `Angel Crescent', `Angel Gardens' and `Angel Everything Else You Can Think Of' but they don't do that any more because it's stupidly confusing, not least for the fire brigade and ambulance service who need to get to the right one first time.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 11:15 GMT
I thought 23 was quite good for a Brit, but then looked at the answers & I'd missed Crescent & Place both of which are common in the UK! One that doesn't feature is "Close" which is the usual suffix for a cul-de-sac in UK, having looked at Wikipedia it looks like "Court" is the US equivalent.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 11:52 GMT
Stravenue? Some people are weird...
Dec 30th, 2008 at 12:05 GMT
I got "Park" and "Place" and "Walk". But no board.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 12:08 GMT
What about Brow?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 12:19 GMT
This is a great quiz. I got 46. But radial?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 12:21 GMT
Dec 30th, 2008 at 13:22 GMT
I got 40 on the first try. I can't believe I missed Turnpike, since I just spent five hours driving across Pennsylvania on the Pa. Turnpike on Saturday.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 13:29 GMT
That was fun but really hard. I got 47.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 13:44 GMT
awesome quiz! I only got 37 but felt really dumb seeing some of the ones I missed. But what the hell is a stravenue?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 13:46 GMT
So hard! Excellent. But not vennel? vale? close? circus?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 13:59 GMT
echo the others; crazy fun. had no idea there were so many and I think a lot are peculiar to suburban/exurban housing developments. I got 32 on my 2nd try after I realized the kinds of words that might be accepted. still I missed some real obvious ones. Quay would have been fun, but it is largely Canadian/British. Although my boss lives in a luxury apartment building the name of which includes the word, and that's in Cleveland.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 14:08 GMT
How the F were we supposed to get Stravenue?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 14:32 GMT
I got 36 as a Brit. There's some which I'm surprised aren't on the list (i.e. Vale, Parade, Cuttings, Cottages).
Dec 30th, 2008 at 14:40 GMT
Wait, there are 146 of these?! Are you serious?! Yowsers.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 14:50 GMT
Got 56. I guess my years of pushing a hack were not all in vain. There are a few more could be included, though: chase, strip, and palisades. Good quiz.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 15:20 GMT
48/146. We are totally unoriginal when it comes to street suffixes in my metro area.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 15:23 GMT
I was rubbish at that, but you are missing quite a few Close, Loan, Stairs, Circus, Narrows, Hills - in fact i take it that you didn't do plurals - fair enough, but it does mean that things like Gardens are missing.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 15:35 GMT
Very original quiz! Keep it up! My favorite of these 146 is definitly 'Island', I love it.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 15:52 GMT
lol wow did terrible but stravenue? honestly?
Dec 30th, 2008 at 16:02 GMT
According to Wikipedia, "stravenues" exist only in Tucson, Arizona and run diagonally between streets and avenues. So no, we really weren't supposed to be able to get it. For the Brits commenting on this, we don't have Closes or Circuses in the USA, which is why they aren't on this quiz.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 16:15 GMT
I live on a street whose suffix is "talley." But I can't find that on the internet anywhere.
Dec 30th, 2008 at 16:18 GMT
As a postal worker, I'm ashamed to say i got only 37 (and I have to see these every day)! That being said, what about "promenade", "county road", or "rural route"?
