    I have to say that I wouldn't mind living in Google Mexico if it meant to have an insanely fast internet connection so I acutally the mayor's plan is quite good, I don't think it will work but, it was a good attempt. Also, "This isn't the first time Topeka has switched its name to mark a cultural trend. In 1998, former mayor Joan Wagnon temporarily changed the name of the city to "ToPikachu, Kansas," in reference to the Pikachu anime character, from the show and game called "Pokemon," which was popular at the time, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal."

    Wait that's a fairly large city with some history, don't see name changes like that too often.

    Well, in the original post, they've already done it 3 times (in total). Topeka -> ToPikachu *shudder* -> Topeka -> Google.

    Looks like it doesn't really bother them so much [​IMG]

    At least 'ToPikachu' kinda sounded okay and close to 'Topeka'...

    'Google' isn't even close.

    Oh no. It's completely temporary. They're all about the "look at me! i'm an attention whore!" with changing the name. They'll change it back A. if they're not chosen, or B. After the testing is done.

    There is already a village called Google in my country.
    It came from a different source though.

    Wow It's just 510 KM from my place.
