one of the worst official sporcle quizzes i've seen on here. utterly disappointing
Sep 15th, 2011 at 04:40 GMT
Really, Gilligan77? Why is that, I wonder?
Sep 15th, 2011 at 04:41 GMT
Parade? Circuit? Good tho :) Wth Gilligan?
Sep 15th, 2011 at 05:16 GMT
I'm currently trying to discern the order in which the words starting with the same letter are listed. It's not alphabetical, and it almost seems like decreasing frequency, but that has anomalies as well (Mission is more common than Motorway? Oval is more common than Overpass?). I'll probably end up spending more of my time procrastinating attempting to figure this out than playing other Sporcle quizzes. =P

Give me 3 days, I still don't think I'd still have N.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 05:58 GMT
'_____ Close' is one of the most common street suffixes in the UK, I'm surprised there are none in the USA :). Fun quiz.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 06:22 GMT
Missing N was a real pain in the Neck.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 07:43 GMT
I was surprised "Wynd" was missing from the list, especially since there is a US post office located on one.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 09:39 GMT
I kept typing in End wondering why it wasn't here. I still don't know. I'm very embarrassed, but I missed R. How could I possibly miss Road?
Sep 15th, 2011 at 11:49 GMT
I wanted to use End as well Ivy... like the Baggins' address in LOTR :)

This is an unusual quiz. The "USPS" in the title would suggest that these are exclusively American suffixes, but a great many of them are virtually unused in domestic addresses but common overseas. For example: "overpass"/"underpass": Here in the States, these terms are primarily used to designate an elevated junction of two highways. (I even made an off-the-cuff wisecrack on the quiz last night, since deleted, asking if one had to provide the make of the refrigerator carton if sending a letter to an "Underpass" address. A quick Google search showed that they have different meanings and much more common usage overseas.) It would be interesting to see a list of the actual usages of these suffixes within the U.S. only. All that aside, I'm also shocked "Quay" isn't on the list -- I would think that half of Pittsburgh would be unaddressable without it.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 13:23 GMT
Except that its important to remember: USPS ships to overseas addresses. Thus terms that aren't traditionally used in the United States are still used by the USPS.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 13:29 GMT
Shouldn't this be called "Street Suffixes A to W?"
Sep 15th, 2011 at 13:39 GMT
Perhaps add "cross"?
Sep 15th, 2011 at 13:54 GMT
I bet football players had a tough time getting N.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 13:58 GMT
@Gilligan77: I don't know what you're so upset about. "Island" is a valid answer.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 14:22 GMT
I realized I was reaching when I tried estuary.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 16:01 GMT
Only got H because I desperately tried Hollow as Harry Potter stayed in Godric's Hollow haha.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 16:29 GMT
'close' for 'c' (thats the suffix in my street name)
Sep 15th, 2011 at 16:42 GMT
I'm sad that "stravenue" wasn't one of the visible answers for S. I just think "stravenue" is awesome. Still got to type it, though!
Sep 15th, 2011 at 17:20 GMT
You know you live close to New Orleans when you type 'Rue' instead of 'Road', also there is no 'Vieux'
Sep 15th, 2011 at 17:57 GMT
Oh heck, no neck.
Sep 15th, 2011 at 18:25 GMT
Darn it, I guessed "Off-ramp" but couldn't think of "Overpass."
Sep 15th, 2011 at 22:04 GMT
I second the motion of being surprised not to see "Wynd". There are at least two in my hometown (although it is in Canada, not the US).
Sep 15th, 2011 at 22:48 GMT
Am I the only one who didn't know what a "street suffix" was? I thought it meant "ern" as in western or "th" as in fifth!
Sep 15th, 2011 at 23:32 GMT
Sep 15th, 2011 at 23:33 GMT
No tollway? It seems to be in pretty common use where I live (Illinois, USA) and is listed as a synonym for toll road on Wikipedia.
Sep 16th, 2011 at 00:59 GMT
In addition to being a postmaster, I'm a general. And we all know it's the job of a general to by-God get Sporcle quizzes done. Good stuff, sproutcm.

That was really hard! Fun quiz.
Sep 16th, 2011 at 17:50 GMT
Missed my own Drive.
Sep 16th, 2011 at 23:42 GMT
After I finished, I looked up the list of all suffixes, and one of them was Loaf. I'm not kidding.
Jun 10th, 2012 at 10:59 GMT
Can't it accept niche or intersection?
Sep 15th, 2012 at 12:39 GMT
