Known as a "Dittohead Deutschland" (because of the high number of people there who are fans of Rush Limbaugh) that is full of jerks who think the Universe revolves around them. The Northern parts of Omaha are a frightening urban wasteland of gangs and decay, and half the city's real estate has a higher-than-average level of lead contamination because of a lead smelting plant.
The people of Nebraska are also notorious for their extremist rightwing views, as well as their fetish for the Nebraska Cornhuskers college football team.
The city of Omaha has recently bankrupted it's own city budget forever simply because the bigshots in Milwaukee who run the College World Series (CWS) demanded a stadium closer to downtown, and the Omaha City Council bowed down and obeyed.
Major corporations that have been based in Omaha include Northern Natural Gas Company (which later renamed itself Enron) and the also defunct Franklin Credit Union, which had been at the center of controversy involving a pedophile ring linking Boys Town and several powerful republican figures during the first George Bush terms as President in the late 80's.
People of Omaha also have a disturbing hatred/obsession with the city of Council Bluffs, IA across the river. No one quite knows where or why they have such a seething animosity towards this city across the Missouri River. It seems that people in Omaha just need something to look down on in order to make their own hideous lives seem superior.
Omaha: Small Town That Thinks It's a Big City
City of about 500,000 people(42nd biggest city in the US) with a big indie scene, great concerts, great weed, lots of STDs, one of the top five zoos in the world, home of the college world series, the place where the president hides when terrorists attack, and birthplace of Malcom X, 311, Conor Oberst, Andy Roddick, and Warren Buffet(richest man in the world 2008)
And if you still think Omaha is a cornfield with a bunch of farmers, come to Omaha and let me punch you in the face.
I love omaha. I getta smoke weed and go to concerts every day!
original home of Bright Eyes, 311, Jamie King, Henry Fonda, the college world series, best zoo in the country, and many more...great place to live
There is always something to do in Omaha!
Mecca for indie kids. Home of Saddle Creek.
Bright Eyes was born in omaha.
A tumor on Nebraska's ass that will eventually consume the state.
Omaha will soon annex Lincoln and then move on to Scotts Bluff. If you move away from Omaha , Omaha comes and gets you.
Omaha is the new Seattle.
