    Since I have a lull between blood thirsty donnybrooks, what geographical singularity do the following have:

    Athens, London, Pasadena, St. Louis, Boise, Baghdad, Brooklyn and China

    The winner gets to spot me a knight when he plays. If no one gets it (highly unlikely!) in a few days, I'll humbly post the answer.

    Unfortunately my English is too weak to understand the question.
    But I like the idea with the knight very much. I hope the game will be rated - can you post a link when the game started?

    They are all towns or cities in the noble state of Texas.

    My guess is that they are all in a single state of America. I cannot tell you wich one though.

    Apparently alot of dutch cities are also in Amerika, and the name Holland comes popping up quite often too!

    Congratulations to Kupikupopo! That was the closest answer. You didn;t get the specific state, which happens to be Texas.

    I have three Dobermans who would turn you into puppy chow before you get pass the mailbox. Sheila says thanks for the compliment and is now cleaning her Smith & Wesson. Domo arigato!

    Salud,
