All right, who's the sorry tit who gave me a negative rep for the above post with the note stating "What callous arrogance" ??? In a thread full of people saying "X city could fall into the ground and nobody would care," I'm the one who gets accused of callous arrogance? What the hell is the matter with you people?

Again I must ask...what's wrong with Topeka?

First, to Drover: It wasn't me. This is the first I've been on this thread.

Pueblo is not in the mountains, and it is more that a town. It has a population of 102,000. It used to be a steel city, sort of like Pittsburgh west.

And holloway1010, about 400,000 people (who live there) would notice if Omaha dropped off the face of the earth. Omaha is a vibrant city on the Great Plains. Ditto KC and Tulsa.

Yes, but because I am unaware of it's name, I couldn't tell you which city it is.

Well, you are being arrogant. If you don't like the premise of this thread, then simply refrain from posting in it. There are quite a few threads in which I don't.

So, the guy who starts a thread by saying he thinks nobody would miss an entire city if it fell off the earth calls me arrogant. Meanwhile, up is down, white is black, stop means go, etc.....

Drover, I'd give you a poz rep to help make up for it because I think you're right (ducks for cover from flying red dots). But it said I have to spread rep around more. What did I give you poz rep for before? I'm too forgetful here. haha.
