I don't know what those weird rings are around city A, but I don't want any of it.

I'm fairly confident that it's going to be City B, but do you happen to have a better zoomed in shot of City A? I can't really see what's going on there.

After a little fancy internetting, I know what the two cities are.  Obviously A is the "better" city, but I still think I'd rather chose B.

Yeah, it wasn't too difficult to determine what City B is. It took a little more creativity to determine what City A was, though. Anyway, I agree with your assessment, A is the better city, but I'd rather live in B.

I instantly knew A but I can't seem to put a finger on B. Regardless, A is much more appealing for a number of reasons.

So it is between Minneapolis (City A) and Phoenix (City B)?  I'll choose Minneapolis, then.

That is NOT Minneapolis, but now that I know city B is what it is I wish I did create all those false accounts for Vermont against New Hampshire that I threatened so I could use them against one of my least favorite cities of all time.

You're half right.

Me too....well, sort of.  My first assumption was actually the right one, then I convinced myself it wasn't right.

I knew city A from sight, and didn't know city B, but suspected it was one of those mid-sized metroploisises in the US sunbelt, so...voted for A.

Correct decision.

Don't all those belts of water make getting around harder than it needs to be?

I've never had any trouble getting around Amsterdam. I just don't recommend driving into...

Who the hell wants to live in Phoenix ? Or in a desert in general ? You have to be mad.

Therefore A) for Amsterdam.

Yes. That would be obvious - at least, obvious as an option -  to anyone who knows anything about Amsterdam (besides "they have weed and hookers", I mean).

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

I voted city A before reading the thread. Quite happy with my choice. I wasn't sure if B was Denver or Phoenix, so I decided to take the gamble. If I knew that B was Denver I wouldn't come to a definite conclusion.
