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

The problem with this argument is that you'd have to live in Wichita.

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?

What garbage little western ks town are you from?

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. 

Don't be fracking 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".

Maybe you should sit the next few posts out. Take up a hobby, like watercolor painting, tai-bo, or riding grain elevators. Better yet, take a BBS Posting 101 class.

Wichita isn't a bad city for its size at all.

Neither is Topeka, really.  I mean, where are the nice cities with 100k people and no major university or major city to suck the teat of?

Your cities comparable to Topeka are places like Pueblo, CO, Odessa, TX, and Erie, PA.  Seriously, people.

Lincoln is an absolute shithole and it has a University.  I always mentally put Lincoln and Topeka in the same category (state capitols being the category)

What that means is eastern Colorado blows. Even without mountains, we have a much nicer climate (currently 72 degrees, have fun with your humidity), more things to do, and we smell much better.

maybe you should start a thread about cities the size of @100,000 people that aren't tied to a major university and don't have a major city to suck the teat of and how they all suck balls and dicks but also compare fairly well to topeka? i'd post in it.

So driving through Topeka in 30 mins...where to eat to watch the game?  Criteria:  close to the interstate, either.  And not Hooters.  Go!
