Arlington - Your federal job isn't important or impactful, you aren't that attractive and $8 domestic bottles isn't a special.

Pointless thread. Would be better (though still probably sophomoric) in quiz form.

When you're a middle schooler you probably don't know such things.

Did I do it right?

Reston: A place with the strongest magnetic field ever recorded in the U.S., since even people who move far away from it can never quite escape its pull, at least on City-Data!

Dear SteelCityRising

When I was three and twenty I lived in Jacksonville Florida. Folks who have read my posts, and know much about Jax, should not be surprised to hear I hated it. After three years, I managed to move to Baltimore Maryland, MUCH more my speed. I immersed myself in my new life, and left Jacksonville to those who liked it. I moved ON, happily. Perhaps I was fortunate that the internet had not reached the point where I could use it to stay involved in Jacksonville.

Fairfax Station and Lorton are not the same place.

Are you talking about Prison View Estates? What about Gum Springs, that is a real nice area.

LOL you know what, this could be a fun quiz. Maybe I'll go through my photo and see if I can throw something together. OP, thanks for the idea; hope you don't mind that I'm going to run with it but in a slightly different way.
