it's not like Toronto is actually an important or nice town, or in any other way worth knowing.

Though Americans pronounce the letter "C" as "see", Canadians pronounce it "sed".

I have never understood how memorizing random facts was a measure of smarts.
While I expect a certain amount of base knowledge, I am not sure how we should set that base.

Few people could name all 200+ countries in the world, let alone their capitals.
Or name the top 30 countries and capitals.
And if they can, can they also name the first 20 or 50 or 100 elements, in order? Including their number??
Why not? It is trivial, Especially since the number goes up by one for each element ;-)

No problem.  That's just the way we like it.  When we invade, you'll never see it coming.  We've been planting sleepers in the US for decades now.

I was under the impression that the capital moved from point to point over the year as the population followed the migrating seals.

I live on a street that is the same name as an NHL team.  Whenever the team does well, our street signs get stolen.  A few years ago, a bunch of us petitioned the town to rename the street "Maple Leaf Way" to ensure our signs are never stolen again.

Not to mention the flapping of the entire half of your heads up and down instead of just your mouth opening.  That's kind of hard not to notice.

The capital of Canada is a Looney-based system.
 
2013-11-20 06:55:08 PM  
The capital would be the place with the most Canadians are clustered.

Therefore, the answer is Miami

Except for obvious ones, the only way I remember the numbers for any of the elements is by counting up from Hydrogen.

Considering Harvard grads are often supposed to be the "next business leaders" or some such BS, you would think they'd know the capital of the country's largest trading partner.
