In Palo Alto, we do it hardcore. The East Meadow gang doesn't fuck around wit nobody. They can often be seen at Walgreens, trying on bras, buying condoms and being pushed around in shopping carts. When I see the former JLS crew, I hide in the nearest shrubbery.
One thing important about Palo Alto was the Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School graffiti epidemic. For almost a month, there was vandalism every day. It got to the point where someone wrote "JLS- Columbine 2," and the school administrators decided to take action. It was a ridiculous event, because all of the kids who were involved were suspended- even if they didn't write anything. There were three news articles about the event; all were inaccurate to some extent. It was also on the news. The news articles were extreme bullshit.
For example, "One boy was handcuffed on campus and taken into custody, but the other students were not arrested and the boy was later released." This DID NOT happen!
Another example,“'They were nerds, without a doubt,'” the parent said. 'They are pretty regular-looking cast. ... They are not even on the fringes of bad.'" These kids were NOT nerds. They were fuckin badass.
Pipe cleaner figurine men that can be found superglued about everwhere- overpasses, parks, churches, creeks, and schools. Their organizations token phrase is, "Who are these men? And why are they in Palo Alto?" Group leaders have said that anyone is welcome to glue these dandy men throughout town.
The best park in Palo Alto is Mitchell Park. This area is where most of the ghettoist Palo Alto bitches n hoes can be found- ya heard?! Damnn straight! It also has dances where little 7th grade skanks think they can wear too much eyeliner, dress in abercrombie tanks and jean miniskirts, and dance suggestively.
Kids in Palo Alto often say "hella sketch," "cool," "aite," and "sexy."
East of Palo Alto, there is a city called, "East Palo Alto," which, at one point, had the highest murder rate in the United Stated. EPA kids keep it ghetto wit dere cartoon backbacks, Applebottom jeans, and RocaWear.
Hoe DaFuck: "Palo Alto has one very cool homeless guy with a laptop. He's my hero!... I don't even have a laptop!"
"Cool" Palo Alto Parent: "Damnn that guy's hella sketch."
Mitchell Park Dance Girl: "OMG I lyk luv abercrombie, and have lyk a million of their jean miniskirts-- just lyk all the other Mitchell Park Dance girls!! LOLz!!"
MMM: "I like eggs. Anarchy!"
C-HAN: "The PAPCM Associaton (Palo Alto Pipe Cleaner Men Association) is the coolest thing ever! I love them!"
PG, JS, and CH: "WALGREENS IS THE BEST! Aww mayn, C------- is the coolest girl ever wit her grill and all."
Beezy: "CLANCY's MY BFF!"

1. A town where even the homeless have laptops
2. A tree in said town.
A one room shack in Palo Alto would cost a million dollars.
Small suburban town in the Bay Area, about an hour's drive south of San Francisco. Home to Steve Young, the Hewlett Packard garage, Steve Jobs and Robert Wozniak (founders of Apple), Stanford University, and the Grateful Dead. LIKE ANY TOWN, it has rich, middle-class, lower-middle-class, and even a few homeless people. But mostly rich people, because the minumum house price is around $750K. Ironically, the people who call it "Shallow Alto" are the shallowest ones around.
Palo Alto has a liberal atmosphere and Republicans are pretty much persecuted, but the town members tend to vote conservatively because when it comes down to it, they want to keep their money.
Palo Alto is home to two high schools: Palo Alto High School (north side, informally known as Paly) and Henry M. Gunn High School (south side, informally known as Gunn). Paly is located close to Stanford (across El Camino Real) and is ranked 199th on the Newsweek list of best public high schools. Gunn is ranked 50th.
Yes, the Grateful Dead started their career as "The Warlocks" in Palo Alto. So did the Donnas, and James Franco.
Goddamn, Stanford Shopping Center is expensive.
1. Uber rich California town that made it's zillions from the tech boom of the 80's. Went down a bit after the tech market crashed, but the residents are still far from poor.
2. A kickass song by Radiohead, probably about the same town.
1. An outhose in Palo Alto would probably cost more than the house you live in.
2. "In a city of the future, it is difficult to concentrate. Meet the boss, meet the wife. Everybody's happy, everyone is made for life."- Radiohead
Spanish "Tall Tree", a city in Western California by San Francisco. Palo Alto is home to many intelligent and not always, rich people. Palo Alto is home to Stanford University and many multi-million dollar computer companies. Palo Alto is bahsed by po folks who are fucking jealous of it.
I don't live in Palo Alto, but I sure would like to.
A rich Northern California town about 40 miles south of San Francisco. People cannot stress enough how rediculiouslly rich the residents of Palo Alto are. A one room shack cost more then a 10 room mansion in Connecticut. It's known as the Greenwich of the west coast. Palo Alto is made up of two sections, the north end and the south end. The north end is the older part, full of old large mansions, Downtown, and Stanford University. The south end is new and more hip, full of large, four story, city like town houses and a starbucks or apple store on every block. There are two high schools, Gunn and Paly. Palo Alto is known for having two of the best public high schools in the country, Gunn ranking 50th in the country. Kids that grow up in Palo Alto have larger trust funds then Paris Hilton and more then 3/4 either go to a UC school (UCLA, UC Berkeley) or Stanford. The other 50 kids either go out of state, go to Foothill Communty College, or live off their parents millions. Laguna Beach should have been filmed in Palo Alto, the kids are richer, the houses are larger, and the people are hotter. The Grateful Dead are from Palo Alto, and many famous artists, poets, and bands from the 60's and 70's got their start in Palo Alto, making Palo Alto the largest hippie town full of rich people in the world. Like greenwich in CT, there are other rich towns that boarder Palo Alto. Darien, Wilton, Westport, and Fairfield are the rich towns that boarder Greenwich, whereas, Athert...more...
palo alto is a town in california which is a kick ass town, with the high schools, Gunn and Paly.
Palo Alto is a Kick ass place to live
living within the palo alto bubble is pleasant, because palo alto has a lot of genuinely good people. i remember whenever caltrain stopped at palo alto, the train operator would announce: "palo alto, friendly village". no other train stop would get a comment like this.
palo alto is materialistic. we really enjoy spending money, eating out and living large. there is a peaceful, tolerant, beautiful vibe in palo alto with a tinge of ignorance.
palo alto is not the ideal town for young people. nearly everyone who grows up here ends up leaving to seek out and discover the real world. they seek excitement and danger because they have lived their lives sheltered for so long with everything served on a silver platter.
you will usually see K-12 kids and middle-aged people walking the streets.
there exists a pestilent substance-abusing underground which many of the high schoolers who spend their parents' money on weed, alcohol, cocaine and ecstasy inhabit.
also, some kids growing up here hate this town.
gunn is extremely overrated. the students are more concerned with getting into a highly prestigious college, as if this guarantees high income. its quite a delusion that pervades gunn. academic achievement is valued over actual life-learning. the GPA matters more than your actual skills! that is why many people ive talked to say they absolutely hate gunn, and i've had a damaging experience there as well.
myself: "yea that job at starbucks didnt work out for me. i think im gonna go to school and focus on a musical career. im such a spendthrift but it doesnt seem to matter... i wonder why..."
friend in L.A. : "dude, you're from palo alto."
