  3. If it's worth anything, LA trumps Boston, in a way, with the points you've mentioned. If you do some number crunching, In just 2013 alone, LAX (Los Angeles' airport) managed to board about 32.5 million passengers in total. Additionally, 16.8 million of those passengers were international travelers, and about 1.7 tons of cargo was shipped through LAX. This is mainly due to LAX being a trang trans-Pacific hub, as well as an integral hub for North America. If you look at Boston Logan's Statistics, LAX tops all by carrying at least more than double Boston's load (29m, [not in top 10], and 685k respectively). As metioned before LA also has several smaller airports that can certainly take off load out of LAX. In terms of public transportation, LA's Metro Rail still tops the BMTA, partially. Again, using 2013 statistics, there was 238,946,400 passenger boarding for the MBTA, significantly more than the LA Metro Rail's ridership of 114,790,200. However, the LA Metro does have the advantage when it comes to system length (which may be due to LA's spready-outy-ness). Boston has 64 miles of track, whilst LA has 87.7 miles (excluding regional rail for both cities). LA Metro also has the advantage in their BRT systems. You also seem very heavy on the fact that the MBTA "just needs upgrades". Let me just reassure you that Boston isn't unique in it's money-secured projects. LA is constructing about 5 new lines and/or extensions as well as planning another good handful of lines/extensions under planning. Aesthetically, Google Images certainly makes the LA Metro look more appealing (LA Metro // MBTA) architecturally, which is what their message is about right? (or is it diversity, same difference though). Let me also reassure you that Boston isn't the only one getting new cars as recent reports have been surfacing about LA Metro testing out their newest order of cars from Japan. Funny how you claim to have facts when you clearly do not even understand what the city is like on the other side of the country. I'm sorry, but I going to have to temporarily exit my Krow-adoration mode just to slap some sense into you. Although LA has proven to be able to handle more that doesn't mean they do it well. I have no personal experience with this, but the fact that LAX and LA Metro are getting seriously revamped would suggest that they are ready for a surge, or at least thinking ahead (which I'm sure Boston is doing too). Building an entirely new arena would destroy the 4.5b budget, wouldn't it? If they have space for it. (I think someone mentioned it earlier, but) Boston since very compact, wouldn't the temporary facilities have some distance between them and the city center? Kinda burns the idea of "compact", doesn't it? (Note: Advantages in terms of statistics and numberings)
  4. New City, New Demands Pasadena, Krowtopia has released their intentions on a bid for the 2023 Pan American Games. The logo released earlier today shows a rose, the city's historic symbol, in a flame. The committee also demanded the deadline extension to a week later. Long Live Krow!
  5. I wish to enter, on behalf of the great and gracious and wonderful and magnificent Krow.
  6. The great Krow deserves only the best. Besides, the other guy did it.
  7. First person to guess correctly who I really am (before this thread is locked) gets a special prize
  8. P.P.S. I also wish that Krow take credit for Sir Bernham's (mr bernaham's) request for someone to do Antarctica. (Unless Krow wishes he doesn't, then in that case I shall take credit. Or if the great leader does not wish outsider views to perceive his subjects to be 'nice', then Faster shall take credit [JK. Faster never gets any credit. He don't deserve it])
  9. I request that all credit for this logo (including the credit for winning) goes to the great and marvelous Krow. As his loyal subject, I feel that he must expand beyond sweepstakes winning and enter the logo competition as a champion. #GoKrow #AntarcticaCity2024 #Krowtopia4ever #LONGLIVEKROW P.S. The changes portions of the word 'Antarctica' become the number '2024'. Aren't I.. I mean.. Krow so creative? *changed
  10. uhmmmmm... [insert totally un-nervous laughing here ] haha. Faster? Who is this 'Faster' you speak of haha. haha. haha. help
  11. Sorry, no beheading, but preliminary proposals have been narrowed down: The Iron Maiden: Burning at the Stake: Seppuku (how somewhat appropriate):
