Well, Portland has a citywide walkscore of 66, Tulsa's is 46. Portlanders take 68 transit trips per capita per year, 7th in the country. Tulsans take 5 transit trips per capita per year, 93rd in the country.

Wouldn't Austin be the better comparable with Portland?

I wouldn't think that the two cities would be similar at all. Surely both have their attributes.

Some people are not in their twenties, and they get a vote too.

Tulsa is a nice place for families. If you want to raise a family living the "American Dream" of suburbia you really can't go wrong with Tulsa. If you want hip, artistic, liberal, LGBT friendly, etc Portland hands down.

Very superficial. What about COL, employment, weather, religious institutions, schools, sports teams, medical facilities and so on? Comparing the two cities is like comparing apples and oranges. They have little in common other than they are both fruits.

They're both round, they both have a peel, they both have seeds you have to spit out, they both grow on trees, they's both rich in vitamin C, they both get mainly used in juice production, they're both good sauteed in liver, they both have long storage life. They are much much more similar to each other than, say, apples to spark plugs, or apples to shoes, or apples to windmills, or apples to echidna puggles, or apples to Tulsa.

So you think that Tulsa and Portland are alike? Well okay then.

I actually feel like they are polar opposites. This thread is a funny one though.

It is! Very funny! I love the comments being made about Portland being made by people whose profiles show they don't live there. It just goes to show how the much influence the media has on the "sheeple." I suppose they believe the shoe "Portlandia" is a documentary rather than a satire.
