To get their business. Come on Grand Rapids just change your name to Google for reals! Pretty interesting. One up'em GR change your name from GR to Google FOR-EV-ER!
OT: (Does pertain to the Michigan labor market though) Topeka to be renamed "Google, Kansas" for the month of March?
So does Wichita, but not quite as much as Topeka.
(I spent a couple months there). Tulsa sucks so bad that they even made fun of it on Friends. (IT'S A GOOD SHOW DAMMIT!)
I had a couple lacrosse games down there and Tulsa is pretty awful. Oklahoma, as a whole, is not much better.
Has a professional sports team and Norman has OU. Tulsa literally had nothing. It was painful.
Norman sucks hard. Name me one good thing about Norman please?
(you can't answer if you are an atmospheric scientist)
I mean that has to make it not nearly as terrible as Tulsa. Tulsa literally has NOTHING. (unless you count University of Tulsa and ORAL ROBERTS)
I don't think you've been to OU...
Would you like to point out to me where I said anything about Tulsa at all? It's Oklahoma. I have next to nothing good to say about the entire state.
We are arguing what is worse:
Columbus or Baghdad, when they both pretty much suck. (Nothing against either of those 2 fine cities I'm sure that they are great if you support the proper people).
And just what is so bad about Baghdad? I don't think they appreciate being lowered to that level very much.
Tulsa has me, what else could they possibly want. Oh wait, we now have the WNBA.
You know what Tulsa is backwards? A Slut.
You know what a slut is backwards? Hunnerd bucks, git 'er dun!
Tulsa really isn't that bad of a place. It has blown up over the last few years. I saw Eric Clapton and Robert Daltry last night thanks to the BOK Center, 5 years ago it would of never crossed their mind to come here. And there is shows like this almost every week. They have really built up the night life spots downtown and along the river. I do think bringing in The Shock is going to be a disaster. OKC and Norman are awful though.
You lose, I lived in Enid, OK for a year. You got nothing. Enid is in the northwest corner of OK, 50 miles from a freeway. There isn't a gas station from the freeway to town. I didn't see a single hot chick live the entire time I was in the city limits.
We went to Tulsa and Norman for the rocking social scene.
Larry Page, marketing headquarters, high population density, Michigan, etc.
Why wouldn't they consider us for their fiber network? I might just die of disbelief of my hard drive became my internet bottleneck...
I'm all for the network, but I draw the line at selling (actually, giving away) naming rights to the town.
The article mentions that Topeka once changed its name to ToPikachu.
That alone should disqualify them.
Your Pokemans, Topeka has them.
