And all of you who like to think that Kansas City is hillbilly land.. you couldn't BE more wrong!

We used to drive there for certain events and I really have to say it's comparable to Manhattan.
how is a city with a population of 150K comparable to an island of 3 million people?

There are more than 150k in Kansas City. It's a mesh of multiple cities all connected.

This. My jaw hit the floor when I first read it. Then it came back up as I realized it was a typo. It is still only halfway back in place though.

Edit: Off topic, KC cracks me up as a baseball fan. Minnesota has the Twin Cities of St.Paul and Minneapolis and their team is called the Twins but not the two cities with the same name? The Royals play in MO though.

It's "just" one gigabit per second. Still, 128 megabytes per second is pretty darn fast!!

Actually it's 125MB/s theoretical max, but who's counting.

I'll stick with my terrible 3Mbps/768Kbps
