This thing is getting tall. I like how the height is slimming the tower down aesthetically.
It's more than foreigners that see it possessively when city is part of the name I live in OKC and I see it possessively as always saying "I live in Oklahoma City".

Wow? Attack? I wasn't even mad or attacking anyone. Go back and try to comprehend this time. Even notice how I said at the beginning, FOR PURE CLARIFICATION! I had no intention of attacking anyone and really it just occurred to me that some people may interpret it that way and I was just trying to interject knowledge.

Why does everyone's feelings get hurt on this forum? It's ridiculous. You can't say anything without someone coming out of the woodwork and getting hurt by something that's been misconstrued beyond the original point. C'mon.

To be brutally honest, 99.99% of Americans call it Oklahoma City. I've never heard it called Oklahoma's City or Oklahoma. Maybe that's just the foreign forumers (only adam uk so far) but your tone was a bit harsh given that most don't know English so attacking them for their grammar is in pretty poor taste. Just kindly correct them and move on.

I think the guy from Oklahoma was just making a valid and helpful point. He wasn't "attacking" anyone, like you stated, kingsc. He was just trying to help the person out from another country who might not have been familiar enough to know that Oklahoma City is really called Oklahoma City and not Oklahoma.

I liked the P66 museum, the company has a rich history as one of the original "Googles" to pamper employees with services. I think Bville is kind of what Tulsa would have been if it hadn't had more companies and more people... All the grandeur of the oil history is pretty cool for a town like that.

Cool town

I've been to Corpus Christi, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, and Houston. I'm going back to St. Louis this weekend actually with my University for the NACA Convention, and I've got a hotel booked for the Best Western Seven Seas in San Diego for Spring Break. It's funny how someone tries to honestly chime-in and they get bastardized for it.

As for you Manitopiaaa. You missed the point also. I even said in my post that I've noticed most FOREIGNERS misinterpret it. How was my post not a kind correction, and then a "move-on"? I even changed the conversation and mentioned how tall it was. So your post was a bit redundant. Sorry bub.

Some of you guys are just plain STUPID.
