While you missed some of the tougher ones, you could certainly pass off as a native Texan - specifically one from Austin. Many people couldn't even score this high on a quiz about their own city, so kudos to you!

Are you FROM Austin? It'd explain your amazing score on this quiz! If you're not, that's even more impressive, because knowing these kinds of facts about a city you're not even from is something that very, very few individuals could claim to be able to do. Great work!
