A few weeks ago, my parents visited Cincinnati for the first time.  While traversing the city, a sample conversation went like this:

Dad:  So, what are the major industries of Cincinnati?
Me:  I have no idea.

Mom:  Is McMillan Road named after someone?  A senator?  A mayor?
Me:  I have no idea.

Dad:  What's the metro-area population of Cincinnati?
Me:  I have no idea.

Mom:  When was Clifton incorporated into Cincinnati?
Me:  I haven't the slightest idea.

Dad:  How many square acres is Burnet Woods?
Me:  GODDAMN IT, I DON'T KNOW!
