    Provo, Utah, is getting Google Fiber. It will be the 3rd city in the US to get the much desired gigabit connection.

    What's in Provo, Utah? Um... Google Fiber, Brigam Young University, a lot of Mormons, and... not much else. It's also apparently a hotbed of right-wing conservitism, too. Maybe access to gigabit internet (porn) will soften them up a little.

    I didn't even know people lived in Utah. I just figured we kept it around so we could keep ourselves at an even 50 states. Or maybe that's Montana I'm thinking of...

    I honestly never heard of that city before. I take it it's Utah's capital?


    Also...porn doesn't soften up people. It's usually the other way round. :wink:

    The whole plan with Google Fiber was to start in the center of the country (e.g. Kansas City) and move outward from there. They went to Austin next and hit Utah. Seems like it will be a while before it hits the east coast *sigh*

    Kinda off by at least a century. The mormons haven't practiced polygamy since 1890. I think the ones that still do are called jack-mormons though.....

    .....why do they get google-fiber though? Bring it to Cali!

    Guys, it's only fair. Mormons can't have caffeine in their diets - might as well supplement it with some Fiber.

    No way... Really?

    You've got to be kidding me. God told them to not drink "hot drinks"?

    I knew they had some odd beliefs, like the Garden of Eden being in Jackson County, Missouri, or God living on the planet Kolob. But... Hot Drinks?
