Simple game: type the prompt "Distance from CityName to" and post what the top five autocomplete results are for your hometown or city of interest.

Example for Lansing (MI)
1. Detroit
2. Jackson (MI)
3. Holland (MI)
4. Orlando
5. Atlanta

When I try it for East Lansing right next door, I get:
1. Toronto
2. Ann Arbor
3. Indianapolis
4. Detroit
5. Chicago
