Title: Topeka
Post by: jtksu on August 21, 2010, 07:04:43 PM
I haven't been here in a few years.  Man, this place is a real shithole.  You may ask yourself:  "What the hell is he doing in Topeka?". I'll tell you what I'm not doing- driving past swanky neighborhoods and elite businesses.  It's like the damn land that time forgot here.  Hey Topeka-  can you guys get a few more (out of business) mom and pop mexican restraunts around here?

Hey, bad person. I will take off my shirt and fight you.  Meet me at the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 37th (near Topeka blvd, the old Chief drive in theater).  After I shove my foot up your ass and tickle your teeth with my toes, perhaps we can share a growler of Holy Grail Pale Ale at Blind Tiger Brewery, which is just a few blocks away.

I've actually wanted to try Blind Tiger.  They have an IPA on tap?  Do they remove the cockroach droppings from the beer, or do just do it yourself?  (I just assume that every establishment has a serious roach problem in Topeka.)

I find it funny when anyone from any non-Kansas City town (except Manhattan, of course) talks smack on Topeka.

Yeah, like Wichita is any better.  Pittsburg?  GTFOOMF.  Atchison?  Iona?  Hutch?  LOL.

Also, if you're from any town with less than 10K people in it, you may as well just not even comment on such matters.  Your town doesn't even exist on most maps and no one cares about you or where you're from.   :users:

oh definitely, they put addictive topeka loving microbes in the water when they treat it for drinking consumption, that way even if kids leave topeka to go to school somewhere else they go through withdrawal and are just drawn back to topeka and once that treated water hits their lips, they're done for   :frown:  I know some higher-ups in the city government who will do ANYTHING to keep this on the down low.

Don't be rough ridin' stupid.  Topeka is no comparison to Wichita and you know it, I'm not even from here but I'll call you out on this stupid crap.  Comparing Topeka favorably to Wichita is like comparing Coffeyville favorably to Topeka.

For the record also comparing Manhattan favorably to Wichita is incredibly stupid.  You hicks should stop being afraid of places with resources and stuff.

Wichita is a hole.  Just because it has a few hundy K, that doesn't make it a decent city.

Look, if you live in Kansas, there's three decent cities to live in: Manhattan, Lawrence, or some township of Kansas City.  After that, you may as well throw a dart on a map because it's all pretty much the same.  The bigger cities are crap, and anything less than 10K people in it is just not even worth talking about.

I travel all of the time for work, so I've been to a lot of great cities.  Seattle, San Diego, Raleigh, Charlotte, Tampa, Phoenix, and a bunch of smaller towns no one has heard of but are great, great places to work and live.  Topeka, Wichita, Hutch, etc. all fall way below that standard.  Hell, even Oklahoma City is better than Wichita.  Northwest Arkansas (where the Wal-Mart money is), is better than that as well.

And as for being afraid of places with "resources", I moved to Kansas City because I wanted to live where the "stuff" was.  So, I'm far from being afraid of places with resources and "stuff".

I'm sick of the place. The city seems to have no motivation to improve itself and actually become a real legitimate big city. 

The bus service sucks, the river is polluted, and all the good local eateries are out of the way with shitty parking.

It lacks that progressive indie rock vibe that I want out of a town. I feel it in KC, Denver, and even Ok city, but not here.

He lives in Lawrence.   She was living with him, and a former employee.   He was apparently a father-figure, and many of his former employees say he helped them get straight.

They aren't sure if she was involved or not.

Hopefully no emaws work for this company, but if you don't you'll get a chance to move to Iowa and 'pak with MIR :dunno:

Just another great turn of events for downtown Topeka  :flush:

This is consistently a positive that I hear out of people who think Topeka is good, "well, we're really close to Manhattan, Kansas city, and Lawrence!"

Something about being a father figure to young girls living with someone seems sketch to me. Especially if he is helping them "get straight." Sounds predatory.

I haven't been here in a few years.  Man, this place is a real shithole.  You may ask yourself:  "What the hell is he doing in Topeka?". I'll tell you what I'm not doing- driving past swanky neighborhoods and elite businesses.  It's like the damn land that time forgot here.  Hey Topeka-  can you guys get a few more (out of business) mom and pop mexican restraunts around here?

Sounds like you might be in East Topeka, aka Lawrence.

I live in Topeka. Do I think it's great, no. I like it well enough though.  But if I lived in a major metro area and I could be one hour between two of my favorite places I would be happy. That is why I like living here.  I can be at any KSU event on campus in less than an hour from my house. I can be at any event in KC within just a bit over an hour. A trip to the airport is just at an hour.  And my day-to-day needs are met here. That makes living here very good for me. I don't miss out on things because I live here. I just shorten my drive to either location. Just my two cents.
