Untitled[edit]

Was Foster City built on landfill that's for waste disposal or Land_reclamation landfill?

The latter. It was just a bunch of shell mounds and marginal land before development started. Schmiteye 06:36, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

Affluent?[edit]

Are median incomes of $77K for men and $51K for women really "affluent" by Bay Area standards? Isn't that pretty much middle class? Seems like an odd word to put in the first sentence of the entry. 71.115.89.70 (talk)

Removed. Be bold and correct things that smell funny. This whole page smells funny really. Like where is the history section? Fresheneesz (talk) 23:19, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Foster City Library Aerial View[edit]

Foster City Library aerial view does not look like a open book as stated in Wikipedia.

I agree that on the Google satellite map showing the top of the library, it doesn't have any resemblance to an open book. I stopped by the library yesterday and asked one of the librarians about the building's architecture and she said it wasn't designed to look like a book. I'm going to remove that statement on the page as it seems to be a myth. If anyone has a reference to support it, please add it back. Scud1 23:15, 15 September 2006 (UTC)


Over the Edge[edit]

According to this page and Over the Edge (film), the events in Over the Edge were based on what happened in this town; that is, the kids got so fed up with the crap they were being fed and their real needs being ignored, they exploded in an orgy of violence. The rest of the article reads like it was from the town Over the Edge was filmed in, as written by the local city council. Can we get some details on what happened that OtE was based off of?--Prosfilaes 14:21, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Famous Court Case[edit]

I understand that the family battle that ensued at the onset of building the city is taught in most law schools.

The Demographics section is literally retarded[edit]

Guys, the demographics make absolutely ZERO sense. What the hell? The first thing on the list is "One Race" - wtf is that? The next is "Not Hispanic or Latino". This is not in any way shape or form a proper demographic. I'm tempted to remove it entirely because it's so inane. Please someone help explain what special needs individual took this as their kindergarten project. Fresheneesz (talk) 22:53, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
