    Default Google changes its name to..... Topeka?!

    So I opened up Google Chrome, and instead of seeing Google above the search bar, I see, of all things, Topeka! I follow a link, and see that the city of Topeka, Kansas, has changed its name to Google Google, in turn, have done the same... changing their name to Topeka. Now, I'm sure there's money involved, or else this wouldn't have happened, but even then it's still just crazy.

    What's this got to do with EB.

    Also, April Fools?

    Yeah, probably not too smart of me to start a new thread on this.....

    Well, gives us a reason to poke fun at you- goodnatured fun of course. Still. Let us close the thread, and by that I stop posting in it.

    And Dugunz, I can often come across both as arrogant, grumpy and a bastard. But at least I set higher standards for myself than for everybody else- and at least I accept failure in myself and others as well. To not do so is... inhuman.

    Oh well, end of musings and thread for me.

    Edited to add, as I said I would post no more ;-)

    Thanks guys, but as you can see here as well as in many of the old Roman-hating threads, I sometimes do loose my patience.

    You come across as arrogant and grumpy? I only ever remember you as being a respected, respectful, knowledgeable historian that somehow has the patience to put up with this board's children.

    Mac is arrogant and grumpy, but in the best way possible. That's what I've learned. And it was a good thing OP started this thread. The historical event is of great importance and as EB players love history and promise to read more history, they can visit the Topeka page and read all about it.

    like all Scandinavians; if that wasn't true, then why go round the north sea trashing other people's countries?

    (in case anyone is wondering, that's a viking reference. and of course I do NOT believe that of all scandinavians)

    oh, and

    Is it a paradox or the threads that NO ONE want to see closed all get closed in the fastest and most effective way possible, and those thread who most people strike their ''CLOSE IT'' banner, have a frustrating tendency to stay open... 0.o
